I'm In!

I've only done the Diva's Challenge one other time in over three years of tangling. I love looking at all the entries, but am often intimidated into...silence. This week's challenge appealed to me in its simplicity. Just use one of the strings from Linda Farmer's marvelous blog, String 004. So I did it.

Sand Swirl variation, Mooka, Auraknot variation, Betweed, Paradox, Pearlz

And it was fun! I so seldom actually do the traditional Zentangle Method on a lovely Zentangle tile - I've been doing more ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art). Fun, fun, fun. Man, I love this art form! :)

In other news...
I'm offering a new class!
Tangled Garden Classes August 10 & 31
I am now taking registrations for my new Tangled Garden Classes! I've been really loving drawing the organic tangles on the Strathmore Toned Tan paper, and can't wait to teach YOU how to do it, too! So fun, and the results are so satisfying and lovely. Intro to Zentangle is a prerequisite, but for a small additional charge I'm willing to do a one hour intro for newbies just prior to the class. Email me for more info and details or look here.

The possibilities are endless!


  1. All of your drawings are great. The Diva challenge is great.I like the way you connected the two loops together, and draw something behind the right loop. Very creative.

  2. Nice challenge tile! Sure wish I was close enough for one of your tangled garden classes! The work is gorgeous!
