Then I discovered blogging and zentangle. Oh what a joy that has become. I feel I am part of an art community. I remember the first comment I got - about a year ago - I happy danced all over the den!! A "real" art person saw value in my work! I was shocked. Particularly when I went to her blog and saw her stunning work. My self confidence has steadily grown. I am grateful to zentangle for that. I am thankful for every person who takes time to stop by and look. Now on to the actual art work.
This week I am have all 3 of my challenges on one post. School is pretty busy so combining is easier. I love the entry I did for Bright Owl. I guess it is just because I love brown tones. I used some of my favorites - nzeppel (I used to hate this tangle), crescent moon, and one of my absolute favorites -pea nuckle.
This inchie was tough! The word of the week was "ruin". I struggled to come up with a unique idea. Finally my first thought seemed to be the best - "the road to ruin". Ah well.
The Blog Friendship Cup will be leaving my house early next week to go to a new home!! Yahoo! It will travel to Amy in TN (from Cathy in TN, isn't that neat?!) We have sent a few emails back and forth and I really do feel like I have made a new friend. We both are teachers and tanglers! This was such a great experience. Head over to her site in a bit and see how she is going to find it a new home. You just might get to "play".
Guess I better head out now. I have a ton of things to do. The weather is finally pretty - for a while - a certain pooch is wondering why we are not throwing a frisbee, football, soccer ball, anything for him to catch! Can't believe Lakota will be four years old on Friday. Oh my. Time flies.
