A highly sedentary day because walking outdoors with about seven feet of snow on the ground is tricky and I cannot move my car. Don't get me started on this winter and the snow.
So have been trying a few new tangles, and enjoying them. From late last night:
Totally enjoyed working with this one, my first try at it. Would make a great border and/or way to decorate a Hollibaugh cross-bar.
That one announces itself--I did both of them in the spaces in an old calendar and then had fun with colored pencils.
I'm also trying to catch up with the Facebook Group of tanglers that gives weekly journal prompts. A couple of weeks ago, when I was on retreat, the prompt-of-the-week (which I never read until today) "prompted" this journal entry from me:
She (above) is a bit on the too-cute side, but that's ok. I'd say more about what the prompt was, but it's just too complicated to go into here, lol.
Here are both pages from my open journal (the previous page is indeed prompt #3, which I blogged about a few weeks back):
It is fun to work with these structured prompts and see where they take me. I need to get back to creating. For the past few days I've been doing some volunteer work that makes it impossible to do much else, so it was good to finish that up today and get back into art.
And now if you'll excuse me, we have TWO more snowstorms on the way. Possibly three. Sigh. I wonder if I'll ever see my car again?
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), long-time meditator and coach, focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
NEXT INTRO TO ZENTANGLE CLASS:
No immediate group classes scheduled (I'm always open to hearing about a good venue in Western Massachusetts. I am always happy to teach 1-1 and/or in a small group in your home.
Come and amaze yourself!
