Magic Moments & Diva Challenge…

A few days ago I purchased an ebook from Eni Oken’s bookstore called 3D Tangle: Zentangle Magic Moments.  After reading it, I started to work through the exercises and magic moments did happen.  So I created another, and another, and then three more.  I’m so happy with my results, I feel like I’ve leveled up again! 😀

Magic Moments: Tile 1 — my husband says that it makes him think that it’s an alternate universe where snails live. 😀

Magic Moments: tile 2 — At first I wasn’t happy where this tile was going, but I continued to work on it adding some tentacles and lots of auras.  I think it is very bold and contrast-y and it has started to grow on me. 🙂

Magic Moments: tile 3 — I really, really like this one.  And it also looks like a place where snails live. 😛

On Tuesday, election day, I was a nervous wreck, so I turned to Zentangle to help me cope, I decided to try out this week’s Diva Challenge using the tangle Eaxy.  The day after the election I was in shock, disappointed, and embarrassed for our country, but mostly shock and disbelief… so once I again I turned to zentangle to help me cope, I continued to play around with Eaxy and with color… enjoy…

Election day… playing with Eaxy for the Diva Challenge.  I like how this one turned out…

I had this leaf from a previous Diva Challenge that I didn’t do because I had run out of time that week.  But I still wanted to do it, so I added Eaxy to keep in in line with this week’s challenge. 🙂

    • Sigh with Zen-fullness, I hope 😀 You might actually be interested in the book I reference in this post. It’s intended as a book for people who haven’t taken the Zentangle classes, she mentions something I hadn’t realized before… all zentangle patterns are based on just a few different types of strokes. If you can write i s c o then you can do the tangles. Some tangles do require more focus than others, and some people (me included) like to add a bit of flare… but the actual tangles themselves are doable by almost anyone. 🙂 The book can be purchased on her website, and then you just download the PDF file and you have the book. 🙂 Hope this helps. 😀

  1. Love you shading work! Fantastic! I like the composition and colour of Eaxy in your fifth tile. But my favorite is your leaf tile…. colour is fabulous and love how you used schattuck!

  2. What terrific tiles using Eni’s techniques! I think I might have time invest in those ebooks! My favourite is your leaf tile. I love the colours! And how you’ve used schattuck! Fabulous! 🙂

    • Thanks, Deanne! 😀 I’ve purchased a few of Eni’s books and every time I improve after reading and practicing. She has a great style and explains in a way that really speaks to me. Definitely worth a look. 🙂
