Zenith

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #233: "New Official Tangle - Zenith"

Zenith is a marvellous border type tangle that can stay slim or blossom outwards. Combining curved and straight lines it flows with a happy vibe.

Talking about happy vibes, Paul and I are packed and ready for our flight to Europe where we will experience a train travelling adventure. I am also excited about meeting MariĆ«t in Amsterdam. We have been following each others blogs since we 1st started tangling so it will be a wonderful treat to meet up and speak our common language - Zentangle.  
More excitement is that I will be joining Beate Winkler in Hamburg for a Zentangle workshop!! How special is that?

When you are addicted to Zentangle like me, there are many side effects, like making delightful friendships from all over the world, I am so very fortunate and truly appreciate this amazing time of my life.




Thank you for visiting, I will be back on line after the 10th of October!

Holly Attwater has beautifully guided us through three audio meditations using Bijou tiles.
Check out the Diva's site and follow the links to find the lovely audios.

Betweed is always fun so I popped it in also.

Thank you Holly, that was a lovely idea.

Undulating

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #231: "The Undulating Tangles in C and S minor"

Undulating SSS are pure bliss to draw, thank goodness for that!
 
Last week I developed a Vitreous Floater in my right eye, it has appeared as a cobweb like shadow which at first I tried to brush away but it's just floating there with nowhere to go. Apparently my brain will gradually adjust to it so until then I am trying to ignore it. Amazingly my mind is able to forget about it while tangling. The strange thing is that while reading a book I see it....weird.

Back to our challenge, I love doing S shapes and have been playing with Kelley Kelly's meringue lately which is so free and undulating!  Popsicles is made up of S shapes also so I decided to add coloured tones with the Prismacolor pencils.

Scrapbooks

Is scrapbooking still popular where you live? It's not the craze here in Tasmania as it used to be but I still love all the beautiful papers, wonderful designs and ideas for keeping those special memories. Each year I do a page for Heidi and Samuel in their scrapbooks of something that has happened during the year. I started doing this when they were 1st born but I have only just sat down and created there pages for 2014 and you will be surprised to know that this is the 1st page that I've tangled on in Heidi's book. She is 11 in this photo and it's the 1st 'selfie' that she sent me. That's special!!



 
 
Here is Samuel's Page
 
Essendon is his favourite football team, he was 9 playing for the Northern Bombers in Launceston.
