Know When To Hold 'Em & Know When To...Trade 'Em!

I am participating in a Zentangle® ATC (Artist Trading Card) Swap with 110 other Certified Zentangle Teachers from around the world! The swap was the brain child of CZT Sharon Lynn Payne, who also facilitated the group and made it happen. It was her idea for all the CZT's to create a "deck" of ATC's - 52 tiny, original, works of Zentangle art! So we all made 53 (one extra to be sent to Rick & Maria) cards over the course of the past five months.

One would think that five months to create fifty-three 2 1/2" X 3 1/2" Zentangle drawings wouldn't be that big of a deal...but, as I am wont to do, I procrastinated and found myself frantically drawing the last 25cards in the last seven days before the March 26 deadline.

It was a fun experience though, getting to know so many other CZT's and learning from their work in our Facebook Group that Sharon created. Many thanks and kudos to you Sharon, and all my ATC buddies! Can't wait to receive my deck of 52 from 52  of you! ♥

I Did It Again

I've entered a tile in the Diva's Weekly Challenge. It is her 155th Challenge, but only my third time to venture out of my comfort zone and enter my work. You can see my two previous entries here and here...and you'll also see why I don't enter the challenges often! I always read (and love) Laura's posts, but there are SO MANY incredibly talented Zentangle artists out there, that I usually just enjoy looking at everyone elses' entries. Not today. Today, I loved her notion of leaving empty space in the tile, so I gave it a shot.

Betweed, Mooka, Hibred, Aquafleur

This is also my first time to use Aquafleur (in public)! I've been wanting to try it since its debut from Rick and Maria in their Jaunary 19 newsletter, and finally did. I did a practice monotangle tile a couple of days ago, and liked it so much, that I've been playing with it in my bookmarks.  Here's my practice tile:

Here are the bookmarks with a little Aquafleur:

THANK YOU for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you, and visit my Facebook page!

Bookmark'n It!

I've been having a lot of fun making bookmarks recently. I made a few as giveaways for a Facebook post regarding my first Found Poetry art. It was so much fun, and the possibilities are endless. I just finished one as a personalized gift for a friend - she requested a New York City/Broadway/dance theme. I've decided to add them to my Etsy Store, because personalized stuff is always fun!


What have you been up to in your tangled world?

Tangled Ink Art

I finally got a chance to take a class with my fellow CZT, the lovely and talented Bonnie Pewterbaugh of Emerald City Tangles. I had so much fun! Can't wait to teach a Tangled Ink Art Class of my own!
