Diva Challenge 324

Hi!
The Diva, Laura Harms, CZT, from Regina, Canada, has been doing a challenge every Monday for about 6 years now. And recently she has been doing live video podcasts on “Twitch” app, where she actually tangles a tile for Monday’s challenge. I really enjoy watching and listening to her and saying hello. I always learn something new! She is on her summer break with her family right now and she has guest challenges.
As I said previously, I have a hard time doing challenges but this week Jessica Davies, CZT is the guest for this week and she has challenged us to use a heart for a string. I LOVE hearts ❤  So….instead of tangling a tile, I tangled a rock and used Spoken tangle, by Zentangle® and Curly Q, by Diane Lachance. I LOVE rocks too!!

These are some hearts I’ve tangled when I lost my beautiful kitty, Cinnamon.
I had a big hole in my heart!

Coffee Cups Competition

Hi! Before today gets away from me, I want to share a FUN project we did around this time, last June 2016. As you know I work for Blaines Art Supply, and last June, many art supply representatives came up from the lower 48 to throw a “Make it & Take it” event. I set up my tent, tables, and examples of my Zentangle® coffee cups I had done at home. I was so excited!!

Blaines Art donated white coffee cups and black pens (there is a beverage bar inside the store). We were going to have a tangled cup competition and I was ready! There were lots of other tent “stations” like alcohol inks, painting sneakers, Gelli printing plates, lots of different types of pens, watercolors, markers, and papers too to experiment with. Many of the products were on sale.

I had drawn some simple Zentangle tangles and their step outs on big pieces of paper and taped them to the side of the tent so people could follow step-by-step. I also had Zentangle books, supplies, business cards, and my up-coming classes. Everyone’s cup was sooooo different and creative! Some took their tangled cups home and some we displayed in the store and for the rest of the month people could vote on their favorite one! The WINNER got a goodie bag filled with awesome Zentangle supplies so they could keep tangling!!

Even though it was a COLD day and my hands were frozen we all had a good time! Jake even took over the booth so I could go inside to warm up 🙂 I think we should do this again!
