More of Those Cute Little Twinchies

1 Comment

At least I think they are cute little twinchies! Two inch squares of awesomeness. Oh! And some beautiful color also! My eyes are doing better today. We think I was having problems with allergies. Who knew there was pollen when half the country is getting ready to face snow? Yep! Pine pollen in sunny Florida…. Continue Reading

The Flow of Aquafleur

1 Comment

Just a short post today. Having some semi-major eye pain and am doing eye-drops like crazy. Aquafleur is an official zentangle® tangle. You can see step-outs here. It’s one of those tangles I had so much trouble drawing – I disliked this tangle immensely. Then I went to a workshop called Retreat to Paradise where… Continue Reading

Tangle Reference Guide


Lately when I’ve been ‘trying’ to tangle, I have a lot of . . . do I know any tangles??? What do I know? I can’t remember a thing! Has this ever happened to you? I am probably not the only person who has so many things going on in my life that my brain… Continue Reading

I started with that radiating spiral in the middle and just kept adding.  It has taken me probably close to five minutes to find my chop –… Continue Reading

My First Collage Mermaid is Done


  As I mentioned a couple days ago, I am taking an online class called Mermaid Circus. It’s taught by Jane Davenport and Teesha Moore. Our first assignment was to make a mermaid using collage art. I had never done anything with collage before. You literally cut all these bits and pieces out of magazines… Continue Reading

I Can Draw That With My Eyes Shut Tight!


Draw with your eyes shut? Strange question? Perhaps, but that is exactly what the Diva asked us to do this week in her The Diva Challenge. I always love this challenge. I’ve gotten away from using a string when I tangle. I like the freeness that comes from not using a string. But sometimes we… Continue Reading
