Zentangle® Snail, Stripes, and an Inchie

I am the Diva challenged us to use stripes today. Not really being in the mood for stripes, I thought I would play with my Distress Inks on an official Zentangle tile. I used Post It tape to make colorful stripes and THEN I was in the mood for stripes!
Distress Inks

I added Snail, Beeline, and Wired. For some contrast, I added white with an Acrylic paint

Square One, Facebook, has a focus tangle of Snail. I actually did that before the Diva tile and thought I would like to use it again.

And the prompt word over at Every Inchie Monday is Bag. Well, don't let the cat out of the bag!

(Can you guess where I got my inspiration from?)

Okay, so upon doing the link, I see that I can't read my own writing and I saw "bag" instead of "big". So here is my BIG mistake! LOL!

Thank you for stopping by. I love reading your comments!

Zentangle® Spring, Shnek, Chaz, and an Inchie

I'm back from our adventure. We drove from Phoenix to Myrtle Beach, SC. Spent a week there, then drove back through Texas to visit with family and friend. I won't bore you with the whole thing, but this will let you know the highlight for me.

Back to Zentangle though. This week, over at I am the Diva, we have a challenge to use a spring as a string. Love it!
I decided to aura the string so the "spring" would remain.

Square One, Facebook, has a focus tangle of Shnek. I really wanted to do this in the round but just couldn't seem to get it to connect smoothly and still be Shnek. I added my own tangle, Chaz in the center.

 And, for Every Inchie Monday, the prompt word is Poetry. Have you ever heard of a "concrete poem"? Well, it is a shaped verse that focuses on the meaning of the poem through the shape. Not easy in one inch, but do look up examples on the Internet in images.

I'm happy to be home. I've missed all of you wonderful friends who kindly leave me comments :)
