Zentangle® Some Mac 'n Cheese


This week over at I am the Diva, the challenge is to use our favorite tangles. Our "go to" tangles. Our "mac "n cheese"! Fun and no pressure at all. I selected Mooka, Bunzo, Verve, and Tipple. All my favorites and easy for me to do.


The focus tangle from Square One on Facebook is Nuwave by Beth Snoderly. Again, I played with a variation of Footlights.










And, this week I really wanted to try  making some bubbles with Copic markers. I used Sandy Steen Bartholomew’s Buttercup, Carole Ohl's Footlights, and then added my bubbles for fun. 


Thanks so much for stopping by. I always enjoy reading your comments!

Zentangle® Zingo, MI2, and Some Copic Fun With Tangles

This week over at I am the Diva, the challenge is to use Zingo. This tangle was presented to us by the lovely Indy and Mazzy, Molly's little darlings. Fun tangle to learn from these really great teachers!
I used a traditional white Zentangle tile, Zig Millennium and colored pencils.

The focus tangle from Square One on Facebook is MI2, by Mimi Lempart, CZT. I allowed a few Hollibaugh boards to slide into this one.

And, instead of my Zentangle journal this week, I thought I would share a couple of pieces showing what a difference just a few changes can make to a finished piece by "breaking" the rules (or just modifying the stepouts).
The tangles used are Floatfest by Carole Ohl CZT, Garlic Cloves by Jacquelien Bredenoord, and Bunzo.
These were colored with Copic Markers. The technique used is called Bokeh.


Thanks so much for stopping by. I always enjoy reading your comments!

Zentangle® Amphora, Por Fin, Bales, and Striping

This is a "use my tangle" week over at I am the Diva. The selected tangle is Amphora by Lily Moon. This is on a Renaissance tile with a sepia Micron, white colored pencil, and a rust colored pastel pencil.
The focus tangle for Square One on Facebook is Por Fin by Cathy Staeven, CZT. I added Squid.
And, in my journal, I explored Bales and Striping.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I truly enjoy reading your comments!
