Zentangle a Day…

I’ve been playing around with a new-to-me book called, One Zentangle a Day (A 6-week course in creative drawing for relaxation, inspiration, and fun).  I haven’t been doing it *everyday*, because I’ve been doing zentangle challenges and coloring in my coloring books…  but when I do have a chance to get to it I have been enjoying myself.

Since I’ve been doing zentangle for a little while now I’ve been adding my own little style to the exercises… Enjoy…

Day 1

I love showing my finished tiles to my husband, he has such a creative mind and he tells me what he sees… he saw a jellyfish in this one 😀

Day 2

This one is one of my favorites.  I love Nekton it is a great filler.

Day 3

I wasn’t too happy about the first tile’s Poke Root and Festune – it’s obvious that I enjoy Hollibaugh, Printemps, and Fescu, but then my husband said, “what do you mean you don’t like the tentacled brain picking mushrooms?”  Now all I can see is a noodly brain picking mushrooms and cherries! 😀  I redid Poke Root and Festune (with Nekton background) and I like it a lot – it seems Dr. Seuss inspired. 😛

Day 4

I had more trouble with Nipa than I thought I should… some patterns really click and others you have to work harder and concentrate more, I guess.  This one made me think of palm trees and the ocean (I do live in San Diego after all), so I colored it accordingly. 😀  This is the first time I’ve used a white charcoal pencil on the black ink to create a highlight, it reminded me of writing on a chalkboard, it was kinda neat.

I’ve been feeling more creative lately, it’s a good feeling. 😀

Until next time…
