Inktober Day 14: Flukes

Using the InktoberTangle prompt: flukes today. This is my second attempt at it; the first one was a little more creative, but a total fail.

Sharing twelve artsy articles to juice up your creativity:

  1. Street art.
  2. A sculptor turns a fallen tree into a sculpture.
  3. Super Converse kicks!
  4. The truth about corsets.
  5. What happens when Helen Keller goes to a dance studio? No, I’m not making a tasteless joke. Martha Graham was a friend of Keller’s.

  7. Amazing award-winning quilts.
  8. If you have the ability to snap a picture of your pet doing something silly, you may want to enter this contest next year. If not, you can still enjoy this year’s finalists.

  11. How a unicorn makes music. (Because I’m dedicated to bringing you all the unicorn stories I can.)

Rainbow Bridge

Standard

For my Inktober drawing today, I chose to go with Zentangle All Around‘s (a Facebook group) prompt: rainbow bridge. I featured it in a quarter mandala.

I Dare You

Standard

I belong to the Zentangle All Around group on Facebook, and I don’t think I’ve participated in a single challenge all year. But I needed some artistic inspiration today, and referred to the Taking It to the Next Level prompts. Yesterday’s was I Dare You to try a circular tangle. So, here is Ur-Chen:

Diva Challenge #334

Diva Challenge #334

This week’s Diva Challenge is the Zentangle pattern, ‘Nzeppel. I’ve never done it before, and I was really tempted to just do the basic pattern on graph paper as a practice piece. But the challenge was to try a more irregular rendition of it. So I looked at a lot of interpretations online, and decided ‘Nzeppel suggests a rock wall to me.

I googled country rock wall and selected this image to duplicate:

Cozy

Standard

My offering for the  I Am the Diva’s Zentangle challenge with the prompt: cozy. When I think of cozy, I imagine things snuggled together, like two people, or two kittens. This combination of Twenty-One and Onamato reminds me of peas in a pod. What could be cozier?
