The diva challenged us to do a tile using stripes.  I decided to work off a zigzag string.  We're in full on spring  and the garden is being planted this weekend.  I believe winter is finally over even tho the mountain tops are still snow covered.  Happy Spring everyone!

This week's challenge is to use the tangle called Frunky by Katharina K√∂nigsbauer-Kolb.  Spring is cool and wet around here, a good time to stay inside and do art.  I enjoyed this one because it has movement.

Zingo is a tangle created by Indy and Mazzy, two Grandaughters of Maria, one of the creator's of Zentangle.  These two girls are confident artists and patient teachers and I encourage you to watch them create their tangle at the Diva Challenge.  The Challenge this week is to use Zingo.  By chance, last night, I completed a border in my journal using Batumber and was waiting for inspiration for the center.  When I saw this morning's challenge, I knew Zingo would work.  I used pencil crayons for the colour.

Challenge #306 is to use the tangle...Amphora by ZenLilyMoon.  I just love the name of the tangle and that of the artist!  So I mixed it with Rainking and used a tomboy marker for the shading.
Winter is still hanging on around here!  The wind is fierce, the temperatures cool and the snow hasn't melted so I
guess March is in like a lion.  However there is a glimmer of hope, the spring birds are all around...I hear geese down on the marsh.

Diva challenge #305...a duotangle using only two tangles...Molygon and Marasue.  It's still winter around here and I'm finding it a challenge to get up off the couch.  Happy to have these art projects to get me going.  Spring must be right around the corner!

Challenge #303 is to do a valentangle and give it to someone.  This isn't what I was planning.  After reading Rick and Maria's Zentangle newsletter, I decided to give Waybop a try and ended up making a valentangle mandala.  Hope you like it, my sweetheart did.

Diva Challenge #302...Hamadox.

This week we've had an unusual amount of snow, around 36" in just a few days.  As a result, we have been snowbound, unable to leave for days until we found help to dig ourselves out.
