Here I am again, midweek and posting again.  It's OK, I have more to show you that I have been working on:

I was working to improve my Bunzo presentation.

This is Drupe.

On Mosaic, my first comment on this was from Molly Hollibaugh saying it was "swirling fun".  It's one of her's...Molygon.

This one is a creation from Dolly Bolen CZT15 and is in honor of her husband who was a paratrooper in the Canadian Army.  She invited me (or rather challenged me) to take this one on to see how I would do it.  It was easy and fun to re-create it myself.  And I love helping to support Armed Forces personnel wherever they are.  I know what they go through in life of the Military since I am a 30 year veteran of the U.S. Navy.

Well, another week in paradise, so they tell me.  Another Guest Diva (Jane Riter) for the Diva Challenge #331 and we are drawing Petosky Stones from Michigan:

Here is my rendition of the assignment.  No tangles, just a drawing of a stone with eyes.

This is my response to guest Diva, Jeanette Clawson.  She showed us how to make a plate on 4 tiles.  I just did 1 tile and you can imagine the other three because I would just be making the exact same design to make the plate, (and I am late getting this 1 tile up anyway).

I made this tile using 4 different Fragments from the Primer;  T-6, D-4, J-6, and G-6 (these are in order from the outside ring inward to the center.


Looking for more of my work?  Just scroll down my blogs.  I have put up quite a few of the tiles I have been working on lately.

This is just an extra post with some tiles I have been working on the last few days:

Marasu in black ink and white charcoal

Noom Repus surround Betweed

Nymph with Zingers and Fescue

Framz with Noom Repus and Ahh.  Black ink with white charcoal to create the TranZending effect in the framz.

Hey there, everyone.  So, Marguerite and all in the Diva Challenge #329, here is my offerings for this week.  D-1 in various forms.  You be the judge.  Let me know what you all think.  Thank you, Marguerite for this fantastic idea on using the fragments to create a "tangle" out of or to fill a tile, anyway.  I think I will have to use this idea to make many more tiles from fragments from the Primer, Vol 1.


D-1 going different directions with Ginili

Here is D-1 on the Diagonal with two opposite sides going one way and the other opposite sides going the other way to form a neat Star.

So, now it's Tuesday and the visiting Diva put up the challenge today for us to enjoy.  We were to tangle, in some fashion, the tangle called Aloha.  So here is mine for you to enjoy....I hope.

My version of Aloha in TranZending form over Swarm


Hey there, since it's Monday and I don't see any Diva Challenge today, I will post a couple of my new tiles I have done to add to the ever growing collection I am taking to my city's Street Fair next month.

This is the tangle Ginili surrounded by Poke Leaf and Poke Root.

And this tile is done on note card 5 x 4" (I like these to draw on because I can get so much more on it than on the square Zentangle tile).  The tangles used here are Cadent, Nippa,  Flux (Rick's style), some leaves of my making and Avreal (at the top)
