September 26, 2016

Hi all.  I have been very busy these last 2 months.  Last month, I went to Cozumel, Mexico in order for him to have some dental work.  We were there for 9 days and aside from the dental work (which was wonderful not to mention EXTREMELY inexpensive) we had a wonderful vacation.  We stayed on the waterfront in a wonderful hotel with a great water view!  It was right downtown and near everything.  If you need a great dentist and hotel, ask me for details.

Meanwhile, Since we came back, I have been working on my artwork, getting ready for my very first art show which is on October 1.  It is called Butterflyfest and is in Gainsville, FL at the Natural History Museum and butterfly habitat.  I have about 22 framed (thanks to my wonderful husband) pieces.  I also will be selling my greeting cards, many of which are butterfly themed and some other items such as bookmarks and magnets.

Below, are some of the pieces that I am selling at the show...


Here are just some of the Zentangle cards that I will be selling...

Here is a copy of the flyer for the show...

Wish me luck!

Till next time...

Hi all.  It has been a while since I have posted so I thought I would show some of my latest work...

This is my latest Zen Gem.

I am doing a butterfly festival in October so I have been 
making a lot of butterfly cards and Zentangles.  I have added
some gems in the circles.

This is a fancy cross that I did, also with gems.

This gem is a brown turquoise pin that my
grandmother left for me many years ago.  
I used Prisma color pencils to make it look
so realistic.

This is a tile that I made for our monthly Zentangle
club.  We were to use certain tangles.

That's all I have to show right now.  Please be sure to leave a message so 
that I will know that you were here!  Thanks.

Till next time...

I've Been Published!

I am very excited to tell you that one of my very own patterns has been published in tanglepatterns.com.  I submitted it and it was published within a few days.  I am posting it below...

Check out the Tangle Patterns website above to see how it came about.

Below are some of the things that I have been working on...
Beta Fish ( Template by Ornation Creation)

 Some Zem Gems

A new butterfly template by Ornation creation

 This is a Zen Gem bracelet that I made in to a birthday card.

This was a project that we did in our Zentangle club.  We laid down Washi tape and used it as our string and tangled in it.

I am working on a lot of things at the moment but I have been very busy with Dr. appointments and other stuff. 

Stay tuned because I will have more projects and possibly another pattern.

Till next time...

Diva Challenge, More ZenGems

Hi all.  Today, I decided to enter the Diva's Challenge #252.  It has been quite a while since I entered one of her challenges, but I like this one a lot so I decided to enter.  The challenge was to draw an oversized tangle to use as the string and then tangle in the tangle.  I chose to do Hollibaugh as my string/tangle and used several different tangles within.  I don't actually remember the names of all of the tangles that I used but I don't think that is really an issue.  If it is, I am sorry.  I just used what I felt would fit the string.

Here are some more things that I have been working on...

Some Zen Gems...

The tangles used for the tile below are Arukas on the top, Jetties 
on the left, Rick's Paradox on the right and Beadline on the bottom.

Thanks for looking.  Please leave a comment so I know that you were here.  I would
love to hear from you!  :-)

Till next time...
