Freestyle Friday - Diva's Weekly Challenge #156

Friday again, this week has gone so fast! I've spent a lot of time zentangling this week, there is nothing I like better than putting the headphones on, tuning in to Mix 80's on the radio and zentangling my heart away. To me, it's bliss... This week The Diva challenged us to try grid-based patterns on curvy or uneven grids. I've long admired zentangle drawings of spheres, so I thought I might have a go. In my drawing I've used the "Panthe", "Atorm", "Glace" and "Tipple" tangle patterns.

Monday's Mandala - Zendala Dare #92


Good morning everyone, Happy Monday!  Here is what I've come up with for Zendala Dare #92 with The Bright Owl.  This is my first attempt using the "Wirlz" Tangle Pattern by Lori Howe.  I think it's something I'm going to have to work on as I haven't been able to replicate the bubbly effect the pattern has in Lori's Step Out to it's full extent.  However, I love the depth I've been able to create through shading, and I feel the zendala has a real psychadelic feel to it!

Hello everyone, I'm a bit late with getting my zentangle posted this Sunday.  This is the sixth drawing in my series reflecting on 1 Corinthians 13:4-7.  I've partially cut off the drawing when I've photographed it, but you get the idea of what I was wanting to achieve.
Hope you've enjoyed your Sunday.

Freestyle Friday - Diva's Weekly Challenge #155

Hiya everyone!  It's Friday!  This week The Diva has challenged us to leave some white space in our zentangle.  I have wanted to try the tangle pattern "Twisty-blob" by Lisa Rene for a long time now, so I felt this week was the perfect time, I've left a big area of open white space beside it and finished my zentangle with some leaf work, lots of "Tipple" and a triangular weave pattern I don't know the name of.   An excellent challenge!

Monday's Mandala - Zendala Dare #91

Hello everyone, here's my Zendala Dare #91 with The Bright Owl.  I found it really hard to tangle this Zendala template.  I think it shows too as it's a real mash up of tangle patterns, giving an overall result of busy-ness.  This week's dare truly was a challenge!
Until next week, stay beautiful

Freestyle Friday - Diva's Weekly Challenge #154

 
Hello Lovers!  Happy Valentine's Day!!  This week the Diva has challenged us to "Valentangle", in other words, let Valentine's Day inspire us.  I've tried to capture an explosion of love in my zentangle by drawing layers upon layers of hearts gathered together growing in capacity and intensity.  This is how I believe we all should live, exploding in love for those nearest and dearest, growing each and every year in our capacity and intensity to love.
Stay beautiful, enjoy this special day

Monday's Mandala - Zendala Dare #90

Happy Birthday to Erin at the Bright Owl!  I hope you have had a fantastic week looking at all of our Zendala's and our favourite tangles.  I have used the "Maelstrom" Tangle Pattern as my "gift" to you in my Zendala.  I also love using stripes, they are my favourite tangle pattern to use when I want to add rounded perspective to a drawing.  Another awesome template, thanks again.

Freestyle Friday - Diva's Weekly Challenge #153


Hello everyone, hope you've had a fantastic week. This week the Diva's Weekly Challenge prompted us to use the Tangle Pattern "Jailed Johnny" by Sadelle Wiltshire, CZT.  Here's what I've come up with.  I'm not sure how I feel about this drawing, for me it's just not meshing together as well as it should and I can't get past the feeling that it's not quite finished.   I haven't been able to workout where or what else I should tangle and I keep wondering about whether or not the red colour should be in another place.....As usual, if you have any thoughts or feedback, leave a comment, I'd love to know what you think.

Monday's Mandala - Zendala Dare #89


Another zendala for The Bright Owl, this is what I've come up with for Zendala Dare #89.  I realised as I was stepping out my drawing, that the middle looked like pencils, so I gave the zendala a school based theme.  I'm afraid I have been quite slack with my choice of tangle patterns, sticking with old faithful, "Tipple".  Still, the end result is effective.
