Zentangle® Challenge, Inchie, New Blog Announcement

I have found blogging a challenge when I try to use the pages. They just don't work the way I like; therefore, I have set up a second blog so that those of you who are interested in my Copic marker work and other colorful journeys may do so. Right now, I only have one more blog but intend to make it three so that I will have one for art journaling also. You will always find the links on the top bar of this blog and you can always come back from the tabs on the top of the new blog. My new blog is called TangleStreetColorway. Please take a look and let me know what you think. (This blog is not leaving. I LOVE my Zentangles!)

Back to what you stopped by for! This week, the Diva challenged us to use Anne Mark's tangle pattern, Camelia. It was to be used in a grid, but grids kind of aren't my style, so I set it free. I really liked it in the same way I like Henna Drum. I can't wait to see some of these done by people who can really make things flow. They will be beautiful. (I wait to look until I am posted.)



Every Inchie Monday's prompt was the word "implausible". Now, that's really going to be fun to see what people came up with!

  3. Implausible indeed! But I think we all sometimes wish that a similar phone call could happen :-)

    1. Thank you; however, I am beginning to appreciate how nice it looks in a grid from looking at others. Yours is wonderfully done in a grid too.

  7. I agree that Camelia is a great tangle to set free from the grid. You did well with it. Good luck with your new blogs. I cannot imagine trying to manage 3 blogs. I have enough trouble just managing one.

    1. Thanks, Donald. Actually, it won't be more work because each blog just replaces a page on this, the original, blog. It will just make it easier for people to look at only what they want to:)

  8. HaHa! Love your "inchie". One can only hope! You are so brave and accomplished to do Camelia without a grid!

    1. Thank you, Gloria, but I sometimes find grids harder to work with. Isn't it nice that we all think and work creatively so differently!

  9. I like your non-grid-Carmelia Jean, nice other tangles too.
    Your inchie made me smile, and remember how irritated I was when that happened.
    The new blog looks lovely!

    1. Yes, Annemarie, I'm sure it is difficult to be a millionaire. Just send me some of it when you get tired of looking at all those zeros in you bank account LOL!

    1. I was kind of surprised that this tangle was designed in a grid; however, it looks very different and nice that way too. Thanks, Lonetta.

    1. Thanks, Cathy. This tangle reminded me of Henna Drum, no grid there, so that's what made me try it.

    1. Thank you, Wendy. The prompts for the Inchies are so much fun to mess around with, don't you think? I love how everyone goes in different directions.

  17. Oh lovely free Camelia, Jean! Like you, I always try and post first and look afterwards and it's always such a treat. Your take on the Inchie is always fun to discover and I so agree with your sense of humour! Axxx

  18. Love how you have used camelia without a grid, I wish I could think 'out of the box'. I've checked out your new blog and will enjoy regularly checking it out because I do enjoy colouring as well as tangling. Good luck with it. Linda x

    1. I'm glad you took a look at the "color" pages. I love coloring too, always have. Remember the smell of a new box of Crayolas? I still buy them :)

    1. What's nice, Diane, is that there is a lot more paper out there and, now that we have seen what everyone else did with this fun tangle, we can go back and try different ways of doing it. I have actually done one now with a grid and I like it that way too. I kept the grid bigger and so it gives it room to breathe. Thanks for stopping by :)
