The 100 Day Project Part II

I’m participating in a few art challenges right now. I joined  The 100 Day Project with the Facebook group, Zentangle All Around. From April 3 to May 31, I spent 15 minutes a day tangling for The Project. Since I don’t always complete a design in 15 minutes, some of mine are spread over multiple days. We post on Instagram. Check out these hashtags: #the100dayproject and #zentangleallaround. Some of my 100 Day Project pieces were done for weekly zentangle challenges as well. My first group of tangles for the 100 Day Project are here.

The last tile in the above-mentioned post was in-progress. Here’s how it looked the next day:

On June 1 the Daisy Yellow Index-Card-a-Day challenge started. Because I always seem to default to Zentangle, which I love, I’m not getting any practice making illustrations, which is a goal of mine; so I decided my ICAD projects will be animals.

The 100 Day Project continues through July 11, but the ICAD challenge runs until July 31. Also, July is World Watercolor Month, so my July ICADs will all be watercolors.

Installment III of my 100 Day Project offering will be posted on July 7.
