Weekly Zentangle Challenge

Challenge #184  Ing by Molly Hollibaugh

Challenge #76  In Celebration of Home and July 4

This first tile I drew some time ago.  It wasn't until after I completed the tile that I saw the resemblance to pine trees, rolling hills, an ice scattered river and orchards.  All of these can be found around my home.

This second piece is from a poster I created for a Community Zentangle I am coordinating for my town's July Fourth celebration.  Click HERE to see the poster.

Challenge #42 Breast Cancer Awareness and Hope
Using the pattern Cūrd, I enhanced my original tile with a border and a red heart.

Challenge # 13 Non-Dominant Hand

What came to mind, as I was working on this challenge, is a quote that appears on one of my students emails: "Our strength is often composed of the weakness we're damned if we're going to show."  -  Mignon McLaughlin     Thank you Joyce!

Challenge #11 - Monotangle

Challenge #8 - Hearts for Artoo!

Challenge #6 - Ixorus

Challenge #5 - Orbs

Challenge #4 - Starry Eyed Surprise



Challenge #3 - String with Eyes Closed



Challenge #2 - Two Pencil String 

I thought Echoism was a "fitting" tangle for this challenge.

This has been great fun. Remember, there are no musts in Zentangle. Participate at any level you wish.  Not all the tiles I am showing here made it into Laura's photo gallery.  Some weeks, life just isn't that flexible.  I may get to a challenge after the deadline. I may not have time to scan the results in time to submit them. Or, I may not have time at all.

Be good to yourselves and join in at any level, if this looks like fun!
