This Opus tile is a re-visit of a Diva Challenge from last year, All Dolled Up! The dress was such fun to tangle.
My Mum's name is Gwendoline although everyone calls her Gwen. When she was a young girl she had beautiful long curly hair.

Straight Lines

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #219: "Straight Lines all the, times"

No nice swirly mooka this week. We are straight down the curves or circles....except a circle appeared in the centre of the 1st one with the shading.

Arukas gone square!

Tangled Goldfish

A fish shape is so much fun to tangle. I drew the oval with pencil and reeled in the orange and blue 01 Microns, his body grew with 'Nzeppel like a net but woooha that mooka tail just went crazily out of control!! He gave me a chuckle, hope he gives you a chuckle too!!

White on Black

The Diva's  Weekly Challenge #218: "White on Black on Found"

I actually think white on black is quite tricky so I try not to over do it.

Quirky Street

I am always inspired by Margaret Bremner's sensational style of art. Her blog Enthusiastic Artist is full of exquisite tangling. I love her quirky houses and have wanted to try and tangle a street scene for quite a while.
When I started the 1st house it looked a bit like a child's drawing and I nearly tossed it but I kept thinking of what I say to anyone who feels critical in my Zentangle classes....don't be hard on yourself, keep going, have fun, it will turn out to be a lovely surprise! Then I relaxed and became quite amused with the roofs, the little paths leading through the gardens up to the front doors and the arukas sun. I also enjoyed tangling the diva dance tree with the falling autumn leaves, now it's finished I am happy to share my quirky little street scene.  Hope it makes you smile too!!

Thank you Margaret!

Dex vs Bunzo

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #217: "Duo Tangle - DEX vs BUNZO.... THIRTYFIVE!!"

That funny little bunzo wraps and snuggles like caterpillars seeking warmth and safety.
Dex trying to break the mould of being square.

Happy 35th Birthday Laura!!

Artists In Action

This Sunday The Launceston Art Society are conducting their Artists In Action Day at Eskleigh in Perth, Tasmania. Now scan your eyes to the last name on the list......yes it's me!! I certainly feel very special to be invited to share Zentangle with this diverse and fantastic group of artists. How lucky am I to be able and tangle all day and chat with all the lovely people who will be wandering around the demonstration tables!
