A different type of pattern for me and I went in crazy paths but it was way fun! Thanks Erin for Charlie and thanks to you Laura for the UMT challenge
Curves make me happy, they give a freedom of movement that I love. Thank you Laura for the wonderful challenge!
I love white space. I gain inspiration from such artists as Shelly and I chose to play with her ma-rah-mee pattern in my challenge today. I really love the look of this pattern. I find that when you use organic patterns you are able to find white space easily. Another fabulous inspiration, who by the way can make any pattern organic, is Helen Williams. I hope you have fun finding a space for white this week......I plan to spend a lot of time playing with my tiles. Thank you Laura for the challenge. I really am grateful for you and your wonderful challenge ideas!
All month I have been tangling hearts...I had to come up with something new for the valentangle challenge and this is what I tangled this morning. In smaller sized images below I will share my other attempts for the month. Thanks to Laura I again found a way to change up the heart. Happy Valentines Day to all my zentangle friends!
I am looking forward to exploring the possibilities of Aquafleur. It is a fun organic pattern. Just up my alley! Thank you Laura, the challenge continues to give me so much fun and a great start to the week!
Artoo has become very dear to our hearts and it is an honor to recognize him this week with the Moebius Syndrome Awareness Day Challenge. This will be my third Moebius day challenge and each year the symbol has more meaning for me. Thanks Laura! I added marker and white charcoal to the top one to make the Moebius pop better.
Laura, what a fabulous challenge....you took me on a journey of words this morning and I am glad you took me out of my comfort zone. It was mind stretching and so good for me! Thanks!

I have found myself capable of things I never realized I could do, however, I still at times feel the need for help in overcoming my doubts and fears. I found the definitions of this word comforting and encouraging.
For some reason the inspiration for a tile about the New Year came really hard this year and I did the second entry on New Year's Day. I first took a photo of it in black and white and then I colored it with my new handy dandy crayola air brush machine and that was enough for the year. So today the challenge was incredibly hard for me to wrap my head around. I finally did come up with little snowman and I am going to call that good. I do hope you are all having a wonderful new year....and I do have to say....I am so glad that challenges are back! Thank you Laura!
