The Diva (Laura Harms, CZT) of the I Am the Diva blog took the summer off from issuing tangle art challenges and a global groan was heard--people really missed her. But everyone deserves time off.
While I rarely get to participate, i wanted to participate in her "return challenge" to honor her and say thanks. (True to form, I'm very late and she's already issued #367. Arrgh!) Check out her challenge page here; scroll all the way down to the challenge (always at the bottom) and check out the wonderful tiles people produce and post. And if you read their comments to her, you'll see how loved she is.
Here's my tile for #366, which was a "back to basics" challenge with dots, string, and basic tangles. After doing the dots and string I decided I wanted to put the tangles (mostly) OUTSIDE the string, not inside. So, I did.
And below is a recently-finished Zentangle® journal cover. I've yet to seal it because my brand-new can of sealant isn't spraying right. Don't you hate when that happens...grrr.
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), a long-time meditator, a certified meditation teacher and coach, and focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
