Tipple, and Mooka!

Diva Challenge #224, Tipple! Tipple makes me smile and reminds me of our CZT seminar and Romi. She's a tippler! LOL! I wanted to keep working on the Lotus blossom, which reminds me of Dani. She's a flower of a person. :-) So, in my sketchbook a day journal, this is what I have. The lotus needs another set of flower petals... when I do a tile, now I know.

I was playing with Mooka  a couple of days ago.  I want to teach it but  I haven't played with it enough yet. Very fun though. :-)

Have a great week. Remember to love and respect those around you, even when you don't agree with them. We are all here on this earth together.

Diva Dancing in Color!

Playing with Diva Dance Rock and Roll roses in color... started out with a micron  08 which was really great on this text page but when I opened it up this morning, it had blown out. I wonder why? So, I finished with the pigma 05. I find Diva Dance to be one of the more meditative tangles.

Lavender Day

Today was Zentangle at Seven Oaks Lavender Farm. A small class but a great one. Teaching the Zentangle  method is so rewarding!

Here's the lavender mosaic from this week and from last week! I love them!

Color of Love

I finally did my interpretation of the Rainbow Diva Challenge #222. It represents the desire of my heart that all live together in harmony.

Umble - Diva Challenge #223

I haven't completed my color tangle challenge yet but I did Umble today. I did a very simple monotangle since Umble is new to me. I used a Renaissance tile, black and brown microns, no shading. That's it. ;-)

Tints on Tan Seaside Edition

My Tints on Tan Seaside Edition kit arrived yesterday while I was at work.  Tints on Tan was designed by Marty Deckel, CZT 10.

After dinner, I  started my first tile (this tile) and kept thinking that I would stop after this step,  but then I couldn't wait to see the next step! So, it was completed in bed! That's a nice benefit of Zentangle,  its portable!  

I can't wait to do another more of my design and see where else this technique takes me. I love it!

I was so inspired by my hydrangea that I wanted to play with the colors.  I imagine this page will be filled with blossoms by the end of the night! I am playing with the colors but also with the pencils themselves and what they can do.  I have a 24 set of Staedtler pencils and a 36 set of Derwent. I need to play with brushes too, but I'm to lazy to go upstairs to get them!

Beads of Courage

The Diva Challenge this week (challenge  #221)... if you have never heard of Beads of Courage (I hadn't), check out Divas blog and be totally humbled by the stories of children with chronic or life threatening illnesses. In Canada there is a   program that gives the children a  bead for procedures, etc. These beads are worn like a badge of courage.  My Zentangle is Mak-Rah-Mee with ring/beads. I guess it just represents that we are all connected.  I didn't do any shading at all... I wonder if I will go back and do that? Probably not. But I did use the glitter pen that Sakura gave us! (CZT 18)

All Boxed Up

Catching up on my Diva Challenges! Guest tangle from Alice Hendon, CZT9, challenge #220. I will definitely  be using this in class as it is fun to add the shading and have it morph. Thanks for sharing, Alice!

Lavender Farm Zen

I have had a really beautiful day at Seven Oaks Lavender Farm today.  I wasn't  sure I could teach a Zentangle FOUNDATION class using Verdigogh but the students did great with it.  I also had a time constraint.  So I did a crash course of Cresent Moon and Hollibaugh, then jumped to a new tile for Verdigogh and a tangle I made up for the project. Ellen doesn't know it but I think she's the first student I have taught that was a total stranger to me.  I believe in the power of creativity and felt we had known each other for ages! Thanks Ellen!
