The holidays have been keeping me pretty busy. This week offers a break from the day job, but still plenty going on in the studio and with the family.
I did some tangling for the holidays, and played around a bit with metallic inks on black.
I’ve also been doing a lot of playing around with Renaissance tiles to help prepare for some upcoming classes. Here are a few that I pulled various elements from for the final class. I do love the tan tiles!

I hope you holiday season is going well so far, and that the New Year brings joy and well being!
The Diva’s challenge this week was to create a tile with the majority of the tile left open. We tanglers have a tendency to fill everything, so this was a very good challenge to remind us that the eyes need a resting spot too. I used a renaissance tile for this one, with Narwal (my current go to pattern), BTL JOOS, and springkle.

The posters for the upcoming open studio at the Coleman’s Artist Studios are out! Big thanks to Rachel Romano for getting the posters made (and for making sure she got me on there even though I am getting into the space so close to the event).
November 21st – Hope to see you there!
Erin Koetz Olson at the Bright Owl Zendala Dare gave us a wonderful template this week. I had a bunch of different thoughts on how to approach it, and ended up making 2 different versions.
This first one got transferred a little off center, but I just went with it. (No mistakes in Zentangle®, right?)
Aquafluer, Printemps & more
I’d been itching to break out the Renaissance tiles that I got in Providence last month, so this zendala was the perfect excuse for that.

I’ve also joined a new group on Facebook – The Weekly Zentangle Tangle Video (WZTV). They select a tangle each week and then the tiles are compiled into a video slideshow by Jane Dickinson, who does a great job running the group.This week’s tangle is Verdigogh.

I’d love to hear your feedback, and don’t forget to go check out all the other Zendala’s over at the Bright Owl this week.
