Loose Ends

This is an A4ish size tangle, I called it loose ends cause I just felt like I couldnt tie it up in to a neat string, sometimes ya just cant fit things in boxes :)


The Diva's challenge for this week was to use her new pattern 'artoo' in our tangle, it never ceases to amaze me just how much a new pattern can breathe life into me :) Thanks Laura this is a definate keeper !!

This turned out ok, but I wish I could not feel lost every time I go to start one !

This one was an accident (if there are such things:) I was writing in my journal and just started drawing around the wheel that was in the middle (a pattern in the book) and I thought I would stick in on here as it turned out kinda cool :)

With love to Artoo

Iamdiva's (Laura's) little man has had a bad time of it health wise lately, so we are creating this weeks challenge from the heart :)

Busy times with busy family, all roads crossing over each other at breakneck speed it seems, with different goals and challenges , quite the tapestry :)

Tyred !!

Feeling very tired (tyred :) and stressed after a trip to Bendigo through flood waters with impatient shoppers and stressed shop assistants everywhere !!! We drove through very deep water and this tangle reminded me of the tyre tread surging through ( me with my eyes closed) ... I wasnt driving :)

This dodgy beginning (bottom left hand corner) reminds me of life, no matter where you begin from you can soldier on and actually create something beautiful :)

My tangle today is with thoughts of my sister in law and family in far north Queensland as they live through the horror of Cyclone Yasi, I see swirling winds in the right hand corner and the waving palm trees in the middle that have been shown on our TV coverage since this began yesterday, there are lots of sharp things in this tangle and I see wire and fences and feel the harshness of it all coming through.

Diva Challenge

Laura threw out a challenge to us this week to create a tangle while remembering the basics of Zentangle........Relax, Breathe and Smile... wow did i find this hard to remember !!! Hence the idea to tangle the words, I thought I would put this up on my wall and maybe remember to live that way toooooo:)

Floods in Victoria - Australia

Kerang sub station
Well, there have been no tangles from me this week, our town and surrounding farms are in the middle of a crisis, we are having floods and this is a picure of a levee bank surrounding our power station in the town. SES and volunteers (inclucing hubby) have been working around the clock to save houses and farms and animals, we have lost many and saved some too, its devistating for all concerned and its peaking as I write this... whish us luck.. xxx
PS : Our farm is safe thankfully

More inspired by waves and sand and trees :)

Lazy Days

More lakeside sitting and tangling :)


Sitting by the water all day with friends Tangling made me realise that when you do take is slowly and dont have time constraints, it does turn out better... hmm.. what was that thing about living in the moment :)

Weekly Challenge # 3

Eyes Wide Shut was the challenge for the string this week from Laura @ I am Diva,
The idea was to create the string with your eyes closed and then fill it in ( eyes open ) it was wierd for me and I felt really non attatched to filling it in, I felt as if i was finishing off something for someone else and i couldnt wait to get to the end of it... I think it showed too as i like soft tangles usually and this seems hard to me . anyway ......
We are away on holidays at the lake and this kind of reminded me or Snoopy Dog riding a wave for some reason :) I think all my sore muscles have me thinking about the waves and water and may have sent me a little loopy !!

Back to Basics :)

That challenge of Laura's @ I am Diva on Simplicity really got me thinking about the new year, I think getting back to basics is a good idea both in life and drawing :) let me see if I can give it a whirl .. "simplicity"... my new word going forward.. (even as I am writing it, I am doubtful !!)
Ha ha I knew i couldnt leave it alone and after I published it, i went and added a little this and that !!!.... makes a big difference all that "this and that" :)

lots-a-froth and bubble !!

Happy New Year :))
