Laura's Auras

With Laura's challenge #66 we play with adding auras to our tangles. An aura enhancers a tangle, a lovely effect is achieved by tracing around a tangle fairly closely, you can do this just once or many times. Have fun!

Rolling in Red

I can draw squares and spirals freehand and not worry about a wobble or two but when it comes to circles I was not appreciating (even though I should) the wonky look of the bigger ones. Curves can be adjusted with a flick of character, printemps or tiny circles in dents, crescent moon to smooth the edges and shading in the cracks. Not every circle needs to be perfect but I just wanted a couple of rings to be nice, round, smooth and clean. So for a bit of help I used jar lids and a small bowl. No worries just rolling along, I hope you get my drift!

Size: A4 (8" x 11")

My 1st Zendalas

These are my 1st four Zendalas and I'm hooked! They truly are fun to tangle. Opening the tin took me back to when I 1st opened my Zentangle kit, picked out a tile and thought oooh be careful, go slow, take a breathe and enjoy! You can make them as complex as you like or follow the string with an easy flow. The big decision is which one to start with!

Thank you Maria and Rick!

Spiralations Continued

After having so much of a good time tangling The Spiral Guide I combined all the spirals into a large Zentangle Inspired Art. The size is 60cm x 85cm (231/2" X 33").

I just want to say a big thank you to all you wonderful tanglers for visiting and commenting, I really appreciate your lovely words and encouragement.
Thank you Zentangle!!

Love, hugs and best wishes to everyone for a safe and happy Easter.

Huggy Bear

The Diva's challenge this week is from her collection of tangles by fellow tanglers. JJ LaBarbera was having fun with huggins and all of a sudden a new tangle appeared...huggy bear. After looking from a distance I was almost tempted to enlarge the block dots for bigger ears and add faces to all the circles. My grandchildren will have fun with huggy bear. Thanks!!
