Meanwhile though, here is a page from my 2016 Calendar.


Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.

Coloured Tile and Card for Lily

Hello friends

After I finished yesterday's tile, I decided I wanted to add some colour to it and make it into a card to send to Lily.

Here is the coloured tile:


Colour was added using Derwent Water Colour Pencils, and I added some white gel pen highlights. All of the black hearts are glittered with a Wink of Stella pen and the 3 hearts in the centre are shiny because of the black glaze pen.  Wow - colour sure changes the look of a tile, doesn't it? And it also changes it from  Zentangle  to  Zentangle Inspired Art.

I made a Z-fold card, which is one of my favourite ways to make a card with tiles. Before lightly adhering the tile to the black mat, I inserted it in a clear plastic envelope. 



When the card is opened, you see the words inside. I used a Papertrey Ink set, fussy cutting the 'sending' banner and die cutting the word HUGS.



When she has finished enjoying the card, Lily can peel off the tile and store it with the rest of her tiles if she wishes.

Tile for Lily

Hello friends

Today I'd like to share my Zentangle tile #118. This was a special tile to make - fellow tangler Lily Moon is going through a pretty tough time, and the Zentangle community is sending her love from around the world.

Adele Bruno's 'It's A String Thing" challenge this week is one of support as well. The string is based on Lily's mark and we were to chose from a couple of Lily's tangles. I chose her Adante and Lily's Valentine, adding some Mooka because I like the way it can resemble a large heart.
Edited to add: I ended up putting colour on the tile and making it into a card, which will be posted on my blog tomorrow.


Lily - sending you light and love from my heart to yours.

Tangle a Day Calendar 2016, March 22nd, 23rd and 24th

Hello friends

Today I'm sharing a page from my 2016 Tangle A Day Calendar by Carol Ohl.


I'm down with a disgusting cold ... started in my chest and is now in my head. Bah. Should have bought stock in Kleenex long ago. Anyhow, my eyes are burning so no new tangling for me until this goes away. But I have lots of pages from the 2016 Calendar to show yet!

Zentangle Tile #106

Hello friends

Today I'd like to share my Zentangle Tile #106. I had flown back to Calgary to sit with my Dad while he was in Palliative Care and Zentangle was very soothing to me. I would draw and chat to my Dad at the same time. He wasn't responsive, but I'm sure he could hear me.

There were a couple of new tangles I wanted to try out (Spoon Flowers is one of them) - and it's all very random on the string. Just like my chatting with Dad, which was also very random.


Tangles used:
Spoon Flowers
Banana Braid
Crescent Moon
Printemps
Tipple
Joki
Baton
Aura's or Echo Lines. Some CZT's call them one thing - other's call them the other. Then there are people who add a couple of Auras/Echo lines and re-name the tangle as a totally new one.
