This week's challenge from Laura at www.iamthedivaczt.blogspot.ca is to use the new tangle Drawings. Not one of my favourites from ZenAgain, but I love seeing it on other people's art. This morning I am tip-toeing around the house because my husband has a (man) cold… I'm sure most of you know what that means. My normal routine has been disturbed for a few days, and though I feel bad for him not feeling well, I'm not in the Zen moment to be creative. So I drew this quickly and without judgement - just letting go - and, surprisingly, though it's a bit rough, I'm quite happy with it! Colour was added with blue and red Stabillo All pencils.

Happy New Year! It's so wonderful to look forward to the Diva Challenge every Monday! (www.iamthedivaczt.blogspot.ca) Thank you so much Laura! The first challenge each month is a UMT (Use My Tangle), and this month it's the tangle Orbs-la-Dee by Anneke van Dam. This is a tangle I used a few times when I first saw it, but then forgot about it - one of the reasons I love these challenges. So, my tile is busier than what I've been doing lately and I had intended to put Orbs-la-Dee in the centre but made a "mistake" when starting it - and that's how 'Nzeppel happened. I just love the way Zentangle tiles can end up so very different than what was envisioned… This is one of those tiles that I wish I had taken a before shading picture… I almost tore it up at that point! I don't love this one but it turned out better than I thought it was working toward. And I apologize that I don't comment on every post. I don't post comments on photo's taken on flickr, Instagram, Pinterest, and sometimes when there is a blog post with lots of responses to many challenges. I won't comment if I have to sign up for or or sign into something else - it's partly time management.
