Riding the waves

I'm back in the pool of the Diva Challenge this week! I took my calendar to Panera for breakfast on Tuesday, sat by the fireplace and happily tangled Golven, from Mariet. I was tempted to use it in border form, as it works SO nicely for that! But I'm in the middle of a creative explosion over here, so a border it would not be. It appears that Golven wanted to fly off the page, bursting through the string I began with. Borders and boundaries are essential when a creative explosion is happening...  (Did anyone see Modern Family last night?) The dreamers and the realists together create a most beautiful balance. And so it is with Zentangle: The string creates the 'elegance of limits', but always allows for the rush of fluidity. No wonder it's so dang fun.


  1. so awesome. Creative explosion is right.

  2. You are a genius! I love the way your tangles feel vibrant, alive, and that they are stunningly beautiful!

  3. Wonderful and effervescent. I see your creative juices flowing, whoo-hoo! You go girl!

  4. A fantastic creative explosion.
    Love everything in this work!

    1. When it's time for you to bust out you will, Susan. Everyone has their very own way of loving Zentangle, so if you love those boxes, go for it! There are some days when I find staying in the boxes is the perfect thing to do!

  6. Love it! I am enjoying my calendar, and have decided to try some of the challenges. Love being inspired by your creations!
