Weekly Diva Challenge #136

I've decided to give this Zentangle challenge site a try.  It's run by Laura Harms who is a Certified Zentangle Teacher and does a great job motivating people to try different things with Zentangle.  I've been following for a while and looking at what others are doing, and today I have the courage to submit something.  This week we are to add colour, as little or as much as we want to out Zentangle piece.

I opted for creating a star template and inking that in with 3 different Distress inks, and thereafter tangling away and this is what I came up with (I did make one blip, but decided to simply embrace it):

I used the following tangles: Betweet, Tipple, Riki-Tiki, Pokeroot, Pokeleaf, Plates, Navaho

I'm thinking that I may want to separate my forays into Zentangle from my card making, perhaps another blog dedicated to Zentangle is in order, but the title of this blog is so appropriate to this art form!  I'll need to give this some thought.

Have a wonderful day!

I agree and I love the surprise effect we get when we come and visit you Brenda. Zentangle, cards, Art Journal, it's always beautiful and full of possibilities ;)

Hi Brenda! I don't think you need to start another blog- I love seeing everything you're up to creatively right here:). I love the pop of color the green star gives to your bg!

I think your colored tangle is very nice and would look lovely added to a card front. I'm glad you joined us. Do continue.

This is lovely B! Wow, have you grown in your tangling. I've been AWOL for a while so have had to catch up with your blog and I'm so impressed with your progress. I'd be interested to know what size you work on for a card. Chat soon
