Happy New Year

2017 has been a big year, there has been a few downs and thankfully plenty of ups!
Paul and I plan to see in the new year quietly, no whizz bang exit from the past year and no fancy new year resolutions. Life will flow on no matter what expectations I have.
If my Opus tile is a plan for 2018 there will be plenty of rumpus with twists of exotic ellish, travels with tripoli, flowery patches of fife, mooka for a touch of magic, bonza time with bunzo, toodles of highlights and to balance things some shady bits too.

Thank you for visiting and all your wonderful comments, hope your 2018 is full of delightful highlights, lots of laughter and especially good health!

Merry Christmas

It's been 8 years since I found Zentangle! We were in the newsagent in Wynyard Tasmania on Boxing Day 2009, buying motorcycle magazines for Paul when I spotted the magazine 'Cloth Paper Scissors'. I was flipping through the pages when an article about Zentangle by Sandy Bartholomew just popped out. From that day on I have tangled almost every day, enjoyed so many special hours tangling with friends from here in Tassie, main land Australia, the US and Germany. What a treat, back in 2009 I certainly didn't realise how special Zentangle was going to be.

Merry Christmas to everyone in our wonderful Zentangle community and hope you enjoy a fabulously delightful holiday. 

Have you been enjoying the 'Twelve Days Of Zentangle' on Mosaic? If you haven't seen all the great videos check them out on YouTube
Here are my favourites.

Ooops had to much fun with mooka and ellish last can have a chuckle, it is a bit over the top, in the end I just had to frame them in!

Tripoli Travels

A rainy day perfect for time spent with tripoli which is one of those tangles that just travels and merges in so many ways just like a mystery bus tour.
In all these tiles I started with tripoli first then without a plan, no map, just waited patiently to see which tangle came onto view next!

Around the round-about with keeko and squill

Construction on the way, tripoli held up with strutz

From the density of the city out onto the freeway without a word spoken

Lost in the woods.......
will I find my way out by the light of the noom?
