Project Pack 11

 I finally finished up Project Pack 11.  It was a fun group of tiles.  I didn't purchase the Project Pack - I have way too many supplies to use up so cut my own tiles.  I loved learning about the principles behind this project.

Now I will get back to Inktober.  I am doing two sets of the patterns - one on Bijou tiles from the list by Stephanie Jennifer, and one on an Opus tile following the Lunar Project by Pilar Pulido and Sara Ponce, using the patterns from Tangle All Around.  There are a couple of patterns on each group that I will substitute patterns of my own choosing, but when done I will have two sets of 31 patterns!!

Moments #21

 Another fun template - Thanks Annetta!!  I stayed simple with the color on this - limiting it to just brushes with turquoise.

Calendar for August

 I have really lost my mojo recently.  The only thing I have been actively doing is keeping my calendar going.  Here are the pages for August - you can tell my lighting was kind of crappy for part of the month.  I'll have to figure out why.  I think it had something to do with the weather and sunlight.

Moments 20

 This was a fun and flowery template/string for this mandala.  Thank you to Annette at CreA(R)Tives for the challenge.

What's happening!

I'm kind of taking a break from FB right now - not really doing much drawing either. But I am keeping up with my calendar, and a couple of challenges that really fit me. I have a large project I have been working on, plus I have gone back to doing some sewing and crocheting. I need a break. But here is my calendar for the last half of July.

And here is a WIP of the project I am doing - it is an 11"x14" mixed media canvas.  The left picture represents only about half the insert.  The right one is the canvas background WIP. The Zentangle Inspired Art will meander on the page with parts of it continuing under the border - don't fence me in!!

Moments #19

CreA(R)tives' new zendala template is based on the tangle pattern !ion !ioo created by Theresa Febler.  This is a fun pattern and one I will definitely explore more, along with !ion and !ioni!.  All great fun.  
I can see a lot of potential with this template, and, believe it or not, actually declared this finished about 4 times.  I kept going back and adding something.  That is when you know you are really enjoying the moment.

Catching up

Well, two weeks has gone by again!  Time flies when you are staying home.  HAHA.  I often have to look at my phone to see what day it is.

Here is the first half of my calendar for the month of July.

And then some of the other work I have been doing the past two weeks.  I have been watching quite a few You Tube videos and following the work of Emiko Kaneko, Eva Wu, Mandala Academie, Tracy Wilkinson, Mary's Meditative Drawing to name a few.
