" Mooka Monotangle Madness " Challenge #111

Our challenge, should we decide to accept it, is to use ONLY  MOOKA and its tangelations and explore its capabilities.  Sounds easy enough, huh?

Mooka is a lovely, curvy, flowing design...... the way Maria does it!!!   And I love watching her demonstrate this delicious tangle . 

For me, Mooka was a challenge - but I still managed to thoroughly relax and enjoy the process. And, of course, isn't that the basic concept of Zentangle?  Enjoying the process........

Traditional Zentangle - Bristol 3.5" sq.; Sakura Microns Black .25mm and Sepia .25mm; graphite shading.
Loooooooove that Mooka!!  Thanks Maria and Laura.
Happy tangling...
...and thank you for visiting.
Happy Easter!

" Zentangle Quest " - Challenge #109

The catalyst for this week's challenge comes from a post on the Zentangle blog .  A photo, taken in Italy, led to the deconstruction of the design, which was then translated (into the language of Zentangle), and a step-out by Maria.  Now all this tangle needs is a name!

Great idea, Laura .  This was a really fun one to play with!!

" Whyz " - UMT Challenge #108

In this "Use My Tangle" Challenge, the tangle we are challenged to draw is called "Whyz", and was created by Jane MacKugler, CZT.  Instructions are here on Jane's blog.

Concentration is a  must when drawing "Whyz".  If you aren't paying attention to what the pen is doing, this tangle morphs into something unexpected!  And I don't understand 'Y' ! 

Traditional Zentangle - 3.5" sq Bristol; Sakura Micron Black #01 (0.25mm); graphite & Derwent Tinted Charcoal (green) for shading

Thank you Laura and Jane.

Happy tangling.....
