The Vernita Rest Area Tangle

So we went to go pick his kids up at the gas station in Othello where I dropped off the last tangle. Guess what? It’s not there anymore! Now I just wait for that email saying they have it!
I decided to make another one and I was going to drop it off in Ellensburg at Central, the university, but they closed at 5, and we didn’t get to Ellensburg until 7:30pm.

The beginning, aka the string

I’ve decided to use hearts as my string until Valentine’s Day. I haven’t slept real good in a while, and it’s making me really shaky.

Rixty

In the Facebook group, Square One Purely Zentangle, the tangle for the week is Rixty. I’ve always liked it but haven’t been able to make it look real good. I need to practice more and let the creativity flow!

Some Kind of Henna Flowers and Knightsbridge

I tried to make some cool looking Rixty but it didn’t work out as planned. I like how the outside of the heart turned out though!

Almost Finished

Here is the tile completed before shading. It is very busy and Idon’t like the inside so much.

Done!

And here it is all done! The shading helped make it not so busy looking, I think. It’s not completely horrible!

Dropped off and ready for a new home!

And it looks even better far away! I left it in the ladies room at the Vernita Rest Area in eastern Washington state! Hopefully someone gets it and gives it a new home!
Now that we’re finally home, after 5 hours of driving and most of it in dense fog, I’m going to work on the swaps I signed up for!

Oops, I Missed A Day!

I accidentally missed yesterday’s prompt, but actually I did it the other day because I thought it was the 5th when it was really the 4th. So what should I do? I think I’ll just do the one for the 6th, maybe. Depends on if I like it 😉

Do I consider myself a professional blogger…..  That’ll be easy 🙂 Negative. No. Nope. Not at all. I do this for me mostly because I’m selfish that way. I think to be a professional blogger you have to have more than the wee amount of followers that I do, more comments that I get, and maybe even get paid in some way? If ya’ll want to start paying me, you’re more than welcome to! I would think I would need to have a domain without WordPress in it.

Thank you to everyone that does follow me, and read my crazy thoughts and ideas. I haven’t written about many ideas lately, but I sure do have a whole bunch saved on my phone. I just need to learn how to use power tools and then I can start posting them! I don’t think I’m strong enough for regular tools.

Thank you to everyone that “likes” my posts, for I know they aren’t that interesting. They’re just ramblings of my life which is really boring! I’ve been applying for jobs, so hopefully soon I’ll have a whole new section on the rumors that are going around at work. That would be interesting. I’m also going to be moving after I get that high paying job, so maybe I’ll do a “House Make-Over” section! That’s not totally played out yet. Hey look at me and all my prettiness while you real people have messy houses!

So, since I like to talk about my boring life, I had a not so boring thing just happen. My 16 year old Noodle came home with an attitude and won’t tell me what’s wrong. That’s not like him. He always tells me. I know he hasn’t been taking his medication for depression like he’s supposed to, so maybe that’s it. I sure hope not. He was doing so well. Maybe it’s because he knows about the break up between the bf and me, which I specifically asked for him not to be brought into it. Maybe it’s the weather! That’s been my reason for everything lately. He’s gonna be really mad when he find out I’m leaving after I post this and take a shower. Uh oh. I’ll ask him to go with me. He’ll say no, but at least I asked. I don’t like it when my noodles are sad 😦

I’ve been drawing all day. I’d post it, but I’m not comfortable with it yet. Maybe some day I’ll post a real drawing and not just a Tangle. Tangles are fun though. Everyone sees different things. It’s great! Kind of like looking at clouds and trying to decide if they look like a dog or a heart. I can put one of those on here I suppose. It’s a Duo Tangle. Only two tangles were used and the string is a heart. So, not so much trying to figure out what it is I drew. Sorry guys! Maybe tonight I’ll draw a weird looking one ya’ll can trip out on.

Well, that’s about it for today. The answer to your prompt is no, I’m not a professional blogger, and yes I have a long ways to go to become one. Love you! 1459308_10152461223332957_6739682057093752865_nLogo

I Didn’t Forget How To Tangle!!!

 

Here’s the newest, and I can say I’m not dissatisfied by it at all. It is a Ben Kwok template from the Facebook page “Ornation Creation.” You should check it out! I believe there are 43 or 44 templates to do from organic to animals. You name it, he’s probably got it there. Continue reading “I Didn’t Forget How To Tangle!!!”

Watch Out For That Hole!!!

image

I have finally finished it! 11x14in mixed media paper with copic multiliner sp pens and Sakura Pigma Micron pens. Both various sizes. I used an 8B Graphite pencil for shading.
I absolutely LOVED doing this drawing. I only used three patterns, but they’re the type I like. I call them patterns unless they are official tangles. Then I’ll call them tangles.
I had been stuck in a little rut for a while, so I went through all 100 Zentangle books I have. Not really 100, but if you ask my kids or boyfriend I have 99 too many ;).
I love doing 3d type drawings/tangles, so I wanted to do something that really popped. I came across a pattern in Sandy strewn Bartholomew’s book, “Totally Tangled, ” called Scraper. That is what the pattern is! The wood is drawn with wood grain, and the inside of the hole is a pattern called Afterglow. It is one of my favorite ones to do. You can find it at http://TanglePatterns.com.
This drawing reminds me of looking through a hole in the floor and getting dizzy. I get dizzy when I look down from tall Heights. It also reminds me of Alice in Wonderland. I haven’t seen that movie in a long time, and the hole was black with things floating around, but it still had the crazy effect like this does.
I showed a friend of mine the hole, and he asked me how much I wanted for it! So, I told him I would make him another one for free and if someone sees it and wants one then I’ll charge them a small fee. I did go through a few pens!
So now I’m going to end this and continue on with the next! I hope you like this as much as I do!

What?!

What in the heck am I doing?! I don’t write! I attempt to tangle, doodle to some.  In fact, I’ve been working on one piece for a few days now, and I don’t think it’s going to turn out like I want it to 😦 I need to get some expert advice on what to do!

So, I had never heard of Zentangle until I stumbled upon it on the Internet. Pretty much from day one, I have been hooked. I now have almost all of the books about Zentangle, a massive collection of Micron pens, and a set of fancy refillable Copic Multiliner SP. I’m addicted to buying supplies more than the hobby itself! I have more, but I doubt you really care about all that jazz! So anyways, here’s a little about me.

I am a single, 31 year old mother of the best three boys I’ve ever met. I do have a boyfriend and we live in sin together with his two kids 😈 I work with my sister at her daycare, and tangle my little heart out as much as possible.  The  pictures I have posted now are old projects that I’ve done. Now, just remember I just started this in February of 2014.

I had taken two art classes in junior high. One of the teachers ruined my confidence. I’ve never really been very artistic, but I’ve always wanted to be. I am so happy I found Zentangle! There are no mistakes! I love it! Ok enough rambling for now. Here is an oldie, but I kinda like it.
