Diva Challenge #143 – “UMT v.XXII – Cruze”

This is definitely a record.  Three weeks of Diva Challenges in a row!

This week the Diva set a User Made Tangle and we were challenged to use “Cruze” by CZT Caren Mlot.  It was definitely a challenging tangle.  I need to practice way more.

I also kept tangling in my new mini-moleskine sketchbook this week. I got a LOT done.  I’m really happy with how they all turned out.   Zentangle_0033 Zentangle_0035 Zentangle_0036

Something old and something new

One of the recurring features of many of my “before” doodles are spirals.  A spiral floating over the top of this pattern, sort of Hollibaugh style, was the inspiration for this tangle. My six year old loved this pattern and decided it should be called “Rose of Love”

In which I discover Zentangle…

A few weeks ago, I was browsing around Pinterest looking for doodles and stumbled upon some really nice ones by Margaret Bremner.  (Margaret Bremner, coincidently is the name of my year 7 maths teacher – but that was in New Zealand not Saskatoon).   Anyway, Margaret Bremner has a blog called the Enthusiastic Artist, and I had a quick squiz around her website and noticed that she was doing something called Zentangles.

A few click later and I had zoomed through Rick and Maria’s Zentangle site before heading off to my kindle and buying a fantastic book called One Zentangle a Day: A 6-Week Course in Creative Drawing for Relaxation, Inspiration, and Fun. And then I was off.  This is my first Zentangle in my old trusty Moleskine notebook that is already half full of doodles that I’ve been doing over the past six years at least.Zentangle_0003
