Zentangle Challenge #299 - Drawings

This week's challenge from Laura at is to use the new tangle Drawings. Not one of my favourites from ZenAgain, but I love seeing it on other people's art. This morning I am tip-toeing around the house because my husband has a (man) cold… I'm sure most of you know what that means. My normal routine has been disturbed for a few days, and though I feel bad for him not feeling well, I'm not in the Zen moment to be creative. So I drew this quickly and without judgement - just letting go - and, surprisingly, though it's a bit rough, I'm quite happy with it! Colour was added with blue and red Stabillo All pencils.

Zentangle Challenge UMT - Orbs-la-Dee by Anneke van Dam

Happy New Year! It's so wonderful to look forward to the Diva Challenge every Monday! ( Thank you so much Laura! The first challenge each month is a UMT (Use My Tangle), and this month it's the tangle Orbs-la-Dee by Anneke van Dam. This is a tangle I used a few times when I first saw it, but then forgot about it - one of the reasons I love these challenges. So, my tile is busier than what I've been doing lately and I had intended to put Orbs-la-Dee in the centre but made a "mistake" when starting it - and that's how 'Nzeppel happened. I just love the way Zentangle tiles can end up so very different than what was envisioned… This is one of those tiles that I wish I had taken a before shading picture… I almost tore it up at that point! I don't love this one but it turned out better than I thought it was working toward. And I apologize that I don't comment on every post. I don't post comments on photo's taken on flickr, Instagram, Pinterest, and sometimes when there is a blog post with lots of responses to many challenges. I won't comment if I have to sign up for or or sign into something else - it's partly time management.
