The Diva's Challange #172 - DuoTangle

I'm not sure which is more stunning (and embarrassing!) to me - the fact that it's been more than 8 months since I've posted anything or that the last Diva's Challange I completed and posted was #117 - somebody needs to get her priorities straight! The Diva's Challange (see link button to the right) this week really sparked something for me - I can't remember when I sat down and completed a tile in one sitting.  Hope you enjoy it!  Oh yeah, and about those priorities - check back often; I may have some exciting news to share very soon!

Halloween RAZ's

Recently, Donna Hornsby challenged those of us participated in the Random Acts of Zentangle (RAZ) to add a Halloween touch to our tiles leading up to Halloween.  What fun!!  BOO!

More RAZ's - not yet set free.

Here are some more RAZ tiles that have not yet been placed for someone else to find. As I said before, it's fun to do some official tiles for a change - I'm all about the more immediate gratification!

RAZ - Random Acts of Zentangle

Oh yeah. I have a blog. That means I'm supposed to post to it periodically. Thanks to those of you have checked back occasionally - I'll try to be better about posting!

Lately, I've rediscovered how much I like tangling on the original 3 1/2 X 3 1/2 inch Zentangle tiles. This happened when I started placing Random Acts of Zentnagle (RAZ's) in random places. Thanks to Donna Hornsby's creation of a RAZ Facebook page, I, along with several other Zentangle enthusiasts, have been (hopefully) surprising and entertaining people with our tiles. In the spirit of Random Acts of Art movements, we've been leaving tiles anonymously in places we've been and only identify them as a "random act of Zentangle to be found, enjoyed, kept, or left for someone else to find." I'm fascinated by the mystery of both the person who finds it and intrigued by what they must think of the person who left. We'll probably never meet each other and can have fun imagining who we each must be. Here are a couple of my tiles and a picture of where I left them. Wonder where they ended up???

Playing Catch Up....Again!

Has it really been May since I last posted?  This summer has really flown by!  I've really been trying to finish some of the Dares and Challenges that I've started over the last few weeks.  I love reading about each new Challenge and get very exciting to try each idea - only to get distracted/side-tracked/too busy to actually finish it at all, much less post it in time.  Oh well, here's what I've gotten back to so far...

Zendala Dare #64

The Diva's Challenge #117 - "Schway"

This week's Diva Challenge (see link button at right) is #117 (when did that big number happen?? I'm SO far behind!!!) and features a new official tangle from Rick and Maria called Schway.  I can already see that this one has very high "addiction" potential!

MonoMooka - Diva Challenge #111

I just had to squeeze the Diva's Challenge (see link button at right) in this week.  Mooka  is so much fun and what form it takes is always such a surprise.  This time, it almost has a funky feel to it.

Another Zendala Dare....#40

I finally got around to finishing Zendala Dare #40 (see link at right).  I loved the template that Erin gave us - it just screamed for Rick's Paradox.  And to me, Paradox and Auraknot are the perfect pair of patterns!  Positively!!

Zendala Dare #45 - Pearls

I couldn't resist this week's Zendala Dare (see link button at the right).  This one really spoke to me and even gave me a chance to try out a border pattern I've been messing with.  Thanks, Erin!
