Time to celebrate, it's Zentangle's 10th Anniversary. Oh what a splendid gift Rick and Maria have given to us. The joy, inspiration and magic that is shared around the world touches so many. I am certainly surprised how my life has been so full of fabulous opportunities and new friendships by the gift of Zentangle. The balance of quiet moments with pen and paper at home to the buzz of taking classes and the connection through the internet world still astounds me. It is all pure joy!
Thank you Rick and Maria, congratulations!

Sprigs is my new tangle. Thank you Angela Werner for the beaut name.

The Diva's
Weekly Challenge #176: "B.Y.O.B"

Amy Broady from Tennessee has suggested we Bring Your Own Beverage to our tangle session this week. Fun idea. My beverage.....red wine but it went a purplish shade so I decided on coffee, wonderful smell, it blobbed, wobbled and settled into a strange shape so then I decided to paint with my coffee...tasty!

See Amy's art here on her blog Tanglefish.
Thanks Amy.

Weekly Challenge #175: "UMT - Crux by Henrike Bratz"

Crux is a tangle full of opportunities and variations. It has been very cleverly worked out by Henrike Bratz. I tried to get a bit of a pillow effect happening here but had to be careful with the connecting lines.
Thanks Henrike, crux is a beauty!

It's one of those days that I don't have much to say about this ZIA except that I like the way the spiral is just drifting along bumping into the flotsam and jetsam it encounters on it's journey.

Happy 4th of July for all who are celebrating.

If you would like to purchase any of my A4 ZIA pieces please send me an email or check out my Etsy Shop. Click on the side bar Etsy Shop box to view what is up there today.

Thanks Aimee, I enjoyed these.

Z shaped string, turned the tile and then another Z.

a square string, turned the tile, another square.
Amazing how a circle appeared in the centre.
