Zentangle® 'Nzeppel and Pixioze,

 I am the Diva posted a video of Molly doing "Crazy" 'Nzeppel. Well, as you might imagine, that's just about the only kind I ever do. With the holidays coming up, I got the idea to use a digital image (looks like it may have been retired) from Bugaboo Stamps to make a Christmas card using the "Nzeppel.
I colored it with Copic Markers (greys only) then topped with Spectrum Noir Sparkle. I actually found an ornament hanger in a drawer where I keep special ornaments.

And, from Square One on Facebook, the focus tangle is Pixioze by CZT Margaret Bremner. I do like this one a lot. I paired it with Shattuck and a bit of a sunburst idea on the top.
Thanks for stopping by. Leave me a comment if you have the time. I truly enjoy reading them.

Zentangle® Cozy Tangled Cups, and Aftican Artist

Guest posters, Juliette Fiessinger and Kellie Fellinge, for I am the Diva, have asked us to think of what cozy means to us and use that in our tangling this week.

My idea of "cozy"is when fall comes, and in the evening, after finishing all the required duties of the day, that a hot cup of coffee is the BEST!
I used Bloom, Strickles, Msst, and Meer. I did turn this into a card for a card challenge. So, if you would like to see what it became, click here.

The focus tangle for Square One, Facebook, this week is African Artist by CZT Tina Hunziker. I let the lines go a bit and focused on the inner seed. Then, I let Squid wander through. Do look up the tangle so you can see what it really should look like :)

Thanks for stopping by. Leave me a comment if you have the time. I truly enjoy reading them.

Zentangle® Squarz, Btl Joos, and Fleevy

Laura is back at I am the Diva after a long deserved summer break with her family. We all appreciate the fun challenges that her guest bloggers provided us to keep us amused while she was gone.

This week's challenge is to use squares as a string. Of course, I had to go my own way, LOL!
Years ago I came up with an idea to overlap squares like this. At that time, I called it Squarz. Very original, huh?  I used Copic Markers, colored pencils, cut it with a die cut, then edged with Distress Inks.

Since there was no post over at the Diva's, I have two weeks of focus tangles from Square One for you. The first is BTL Joos from Sandy Steen Bartholomew
and, the second is this week's tangle from Hanny Waldburger is, Fleevy.
Thanks for stopping by. I missed all of you last week. As always, I do appreciate the comments you leave.
