Zentangle® Molygon, C-Scape, and an Inchie

I am the Diva, challenged us to use the new tangle, Molygon. I have been having a lot of fun with this tangle already so I thought I would just play with some different pens on a Renaissance tile. Today I used some Hi-Tec-C pens by Pilot in orange and green. Yes, the photo shows red, but it is orange. The red makes it look like Christmas candy! I also used some pastel pencils in green and orange with some white pastel pencil for highlights.
Square One, Facebook, has a focus tangle of C-Scape. This tangle comes from another CZT, Sue Olsen, who is mostly responsible for getting me to go for my CZT certification. Loving this tangle!
And, this week, for Every Inchie Monday, I got to go off and find something unique, I hope, with this week's prompt, bulldozer. Did you know that another meaning for bulldozer is "bully"? Have you ever been bulldozed into doing something you didn't want to do? This week's word was really fun to do!

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

    1. Carmela, we are all too hard on ourselves. Your tangling is always a joy to look at. Give it a couple of days and look at yours with fresh eyes. Be as kind to yourself as you are to the rest of us.

    1. If I don't keep up with all the different things I do on a daily basis, I would fall soooo far behind, Dorita. So, I do push myself a bit :)

    1. I hadn't heard that term used for a bully in a long time. It does seem appropriate though. Nobody likes a bully. Thanks for your kind comments, Jenny :)

  9. Yes, Jean. Just go with the flow. lol
    I love all your tiles, from big to large. I haven't started my Molygon tile yet. It's actually sunny today and I was out and about doing errands but just being outside too. YAY! Nice day. So, I'll do it this evening.

    I love the bulldozing big fish over the little fish. And the C-Scape is very nice. But I like the Molygon "Christmas Candy" the best. ;-)

    1. I have found it harder to do this year so far, Kia, and I was glad to get back to doing something a bit different. I have no idea why, but it just makes me happy. I even try to do so with my tangles. I have done it all my life, so I guess it's just what makes me happy :)

  11. love the tangles and I do think the first one looks like Christmas candy. I love your take on the inchie, I had forgotten that meaning of the word

    1. Me too, Freebird. Maybe it is one of those words that just gets replaced over time.

  12. A great way to interpret bulldozer! My first thought for your first tile was Christmas candy so even I'm seeing red lol.

  18. It looks like you nailed Molygon right off the bat. You show some advanced shading techniques with color, something I have yet to master. I don't participate in Inchie Monday, but as an accomplished tangential thinker, I love what you came up with for "bulldozer".

    1. I really appreciate the time you take to leave such thoughtful comments, Suzanne. I'll bet you would be a great art journaler too since the prompts let you go someplace really "out there"!

  19. Fantastic artwork and great use of the word bulldozer which you portrayed brilliantly

    Love Chrissie xx

  20. Jean, I love your color on Molygon! You have a very unique style that has such energy and movement! I love your C-scape in the round. The black dots contrasting with the fine line stripes looks wonderful - sort of like garment tailoring. Your Inchie is so well thought out and so cute! Great post!

    1. I don't think I would continue to do a blog if not for people like you, Antonine. You are one of my, many, great "cheer leaders"! LOL! Thank you.

  23. Your Molygon is great, love the combination of colors and beautiful highlights. What a great Homage to Susan, so glad she helped spurn you to become a CZT. What a wonderful gift.

    1. Thanks, Danielel. We probably all have someone who motivated us to become CZT's. I was on a Yahoo group and Susan always said such nice things to everyone. I'll bet I'm not the only one who became a CZT because of her!

  24. Jean, staying warm?! Your diva piece does ring with Christmas colour, even if it's supposed to be more St. Patrick's day. Your seascape mandala is delightful and you naturally nailed the inchie with a twist. Have a brilliant day! Cheryl
