Zentangle® with Bijou, Link to Alpha Tangle Tangled Cards, and an Inchie

The Diva's weekly challenge #179 was "Be like Bijou" the new twinchie sized tile (2 inches) from Zentangle®. I couldn't get the spiral shape of Bijou, the snail, out of my mind, so I just went with it:
 
 Sandy Steen Bartholomew has a new set of tangle cards called Alpha Tangle Tangled Cards that you will just love. Do hop over with the link on her name to find out all about them. She is even having a contest. Just do a tile using official Zentangle tangles and use your name as a string. Here's mine:

Rain, Verve, Meer, Msst


























And, for Every Inchie Monday, the word was "privacy"! Wouldn't that be nice? HAHA
Enjoy some quiet time :)

  6. so much cute artwork. I love the snail, and that is cool about your name. I think we did something like that when i was in school. Mine never looked as cool as yours! The inchie is awesome as well and yes please can I have some of that?!?

    1. Thank you. I imagine we all have played with using our name as a start for an art piece. I think I did it too when I was young. Amazing when you think of all the things you did as a child and still are having fun doing. And, yes, a bit of privacy would be nice once in a while :)

  7. Bijou's spiral shape is addictive, and I like your challenge tile. You have an interesting double spiral design going on. Your Inchie is so cute, and your Sandy Contest Tile turned out great.

    1. Spirals are so interesting, David. I wish I had a bit more control and flow of mine. When I grow up, I want to be Helen Williams HAHA! Thanks for stopping by and leaving such nice comments.

  13. The inchie remembers me at an hotel door. You need your privacy when you like to sleep a bit longer. Oh yes nice thoughts.

  16. The inchie looks to me like a teenager "defending" his room :)
    Your snail is cute, and in your name tile - did I spot a fish hanging there?
