Laura Harms' Weekly Challenge # 15

Laura Harms' weekly challenge # 15: Love your curves, Baby  was to only use curved lines.

I thought this wouldn't be too difficult...but when "filling in" some patterns I used straight lines... Oops, I was just in time to change them into curved lines.

Here's my attempt:

I used "Tuffit" from the book Yoga for your Brain by Sandy Steen Bartholomew for the main focus point and "Tung" to wrap Tuffit in.

I just love the girls of Suzi Blu !

Totally inspired by her art I made the following ZIA.

Do you like her dress?

Let's make some beautiful ZTs to show the world that we care...

Morther Earth seems to be warning us... Are we exploiting the world's natural resources too much? Or is it "just" the way our planet earth works?

Nevertheless, what's happening to Japan, Chili, New Zealand, Australia, America etc etc is affecting "real" people. Families have lost their dear ones, their houses completely washed away, their belongings gone forever etc etc. How much more can they take? 

Let's make some heartwarming Zentangles just to show we care!!!!

Check Maid ( my Zetti girl)

And now for something completely different... LOL

I also love Zetti Art or Zettiology (go and have a look at the Flickr's group).
So every now and then I'm experimenting with this. 

In Cloth Paper Scissors edition 2006 Violette presents some Art Journaling Techniques. That's where I saw a lovely Zetti-like face, which inspired me to draw the following face of my Check Maid.

I'm anxious to learn from you what you think about it...

Weekly Challenge # 12 - Blue

This week's challenge on Laura Harms' blog is to use the colour blue in your tile or Zentangle inspired piece.

I decided to let the color do it's work in my "ZT".

Blue is one of my favorite colors!!! For me it represents "space, freedom, tranquillity".

Weekly Challenge # 11

This is my attempt for the Weekly Challenge # 11 on Laura Harms' blog I am the Diva. The challenge is to create a Zentangle by using just one tanglepattern.

I don't know whether my pattern really has a name, but I use it quite often.
It's very dynamic and the way of how you shade it can also change it's feature (if that's the correct word for it....)

Since I am a huge fan of Ledenzer's way of coloring Zentangles I tried to color some of the tangle spaces like she does. Better try next time.....
