Zentangle Tile #84

Good morning friends

Today's share is a tile I gave to a friend who recently had here 51st (!!!) surgery. She is sporting a brand new knee and recovering fabulously. I popped by for a quick visit and brought her a hand made card as well as this tile.

When she had her other knee replaced back in December, I had mentioned Zentangle to her as she is a go-getter and having to rest and recover would be difficult for her. I believe she did dabble in it, but found her zen in colouring. At any rate, I knew she would understand what this drawing was and have an appreciation for it.


As I said to her, there are a few oopses from elbow bumps and turbulence as I drew this on the flight down to Arizona. But there are no mistakes in Zentangle, right?

It's A String Thing #155

Hello friends

Today I have a tile to share for Adele Bruno's 'It's A String Thing', #155. The challenge tangles are Cadent, Bales and the new-to-me tangle Z-Trik.

Once the tile was finished it was calling for colour so I pulled out my coloured pencils and just went for it. Who me? And surprisingly, I like the added colour!


While I still really REALLY like the black ink on a white tile, it was fun to spread my wings a little on this one. I also discovered how much fun Z-Trik is going to be.

Cadent (variation)

Tangle a Day Calendar 2016, February 19th, 20th & 21st

Hello friends

Today's share is another February page from my 2016 Tangle A Day Calendar by Carol Ohl. I've actually been able to work on my Calendar a little while we've been away - but I'm terrible about taking the photos!


Hubby took me to Michaels here in Arizona this week - I wanted to go because they were having a BOGO sale on their planner stuff. You may not know that I'm a bit of a planner addict. I've used a planner in some form for the past 30 years - for many of those, I printed my own every year so I could customize it. While I didn't need to shop for another PLANNER, I did want to look at the accessories.

Found a fabulous soft sided case meant to hold planners & supplies but I bought it for my Zentangle supplies. All my pens, tiles, magnifying glass, the Tangle A Day Calendar or the Tangle Me This! Sketchbook, notebook etc etc - everything fits in. It looks great and has a carrying handle too - I'm happy!

Zentangle Tile #74 and Petal Envelope

Good morning friends

Earlier this Spring I ordered some Zentangle stencils from Acadia Laser Creations on Etsy. One of the stencils in the package was for this cool tile sized (3-1/2") Petal Envelope.

Once I finished my 74th tile, I decided to finally try out the envelope and get it ready to send to a friend with a card. It worked like a charm!

Here is a photo of the completed tile with the (empty) closed envelope ...


... and the tile IN the envelope ...


... and here is the envelope all closed up. I've used these many times for cards, but never thought to do one for a Zentangle tile. The stencil made it so easy.



Finally here is my Zentangle tile #74.

Zentangle Tile #82

Good morning friends

Today's share is my Zentangle tile #82.


Because my mobility is still so restricted with my RA, I sat in our car while hubby ran some errands and picked up groceries for us. While I was waiting, I worked on one of my coloured tiles.

Taxi is a new Tangle for me, but I didn't draw it correctly. Which means I will try it again soon because I think there is a lot of potential with it. Actually other than Nzepple - all the tangles on this tile are new to me.

I'm not overly happy with this one - but it sure helped pass the time and it was fun working on new tangles.

Zenetangle Tile #83

Hello friends

I'm having a slow afternoon, so decided to join in on Jane Dickinson's Weekly Zentangle Tangle Video. This week the focus tangle is FINERY - one I really like.

I like to start my tiles with a string and this one is no exception. The string 'told' me where to add what tangles & the whole process was very Zen.


Tagh makes me happy now ... considering that I wasn't keen on it the first time around - it keeps sneaking in on my tiles.

Tangle a Day Calendar 2016, February 16th, 16th & 18th

Hello friends

For those that don't know, I have a card-making blog (Altered Scrapbooking) and I've been busy making card samples with Karen Burniston's upcoming die release for Elizabeth Craft Designs. They were good enough to FedEx me the dies so I'd be able to have booth samples done.  I have been able to be creative, just not with Zentangle. :-)

However, today I am sharing another February page from my Tangle A Day Calendar by Carol Ohl ...


Card samples are finished (SUCH a fun release people ... such a fun release) and I am going to have them packaged up tonight. A retailer friend is going to the trade show (in Salt Lake City) and is going to deliver the samples for me to the Elizabeth Craft Designs Booth. I expect to get back to Zentangle soon.

Zentangle Tile #80

Good morning friends

Wow - I can't believe I've completed eighty tiles!! This one was done in the car while we waited to board the ferry from Vancouver Island to the mainland. I couldn't really get out and walk around because of my RA but I was quite happy to sit and tangle.
