Workshop on ZenGems and Zenspirations Monogram Letters

This past Sunday I had 6 lovely ladies join me for an all day workshop.  In the morning we made the Zen Gems that have been all the rage in the Zentangle community for awhile now.  We made them on Bijou tiles (2x2") and tangled around them.  I gave everyone a cute little 2.5x2.5 photo cube to put their gems in and gave them a few other ideas on adding gems to note cards.  They did amazing work for their first time trying this technique


ALL THE BEAUTIFUL GEMS

In the afternoon we worked on making Zenspirations Monogram Letters (inspired by Joanne Fink).
I made all of them a letter of their 1st initial to keep

DIVA Challenge 263 Globular Grid

This was a fun challenge from the DIVA!  Take a round zendala tile and create a globular grid to tangle.  It was fun to draw the grid without using measurements of any kind, see the link for the easy steps.  It made a great way to do a zendala!

DIVA Challenge 262 Fassett

This week's challenge at the DIVA's blog is by guest challenger, Lynn Mead/CZT. Lynn has a really fun tangle called Fassett that looks complicated, but it's not.  Once you do the basic steps, the appearance changes so dramatically with the last lines you add.  This tangle has been around for awhile, and I love it I decided to make it a monotangle.

DIVA Challenge #261 Stacked Bijou Challenge

This weeks challenge at the DIVAs is by guest blogger, Jane Reiter/CZT.  She challenged us to take a Bijou tile 2X2 and cut out a 3, 4, 5, 6,  and 7 inch piece of paper to stack the Bijou tile on.  At first I thought, oh that's a lot of work, but seriously.....I have so much paper in my stash, and it really only took about 10 minutes to pick some out and cut it to size.  I then glued them together and just started tangling without any plan in mind.  I ended up really loving this challenge!  It was fun to use different colored paper, and pens, and also to connect some of the tangles from layer to layer.  Thanks for the fun challenge, Jane
