Socc on the Florz

Yummy... I love Erin Olsen's Socc!

I love how it bounces and dents and connects and flows. I love to shade it, too. This tangle always takes me back to when I met Erin at Zentangle Seminar #7. It was great fun to meet a fellow beader who was also in love with Zentangle. We enjoyed many conversations in those few days, and it was really fun to hear her story of how Socc came to be. The story itself illustrates the loveliness of 'happy accidents' and reminds me that there are no mistakes.
   My fist tile was one I began in a Zentangle class I taught this week. It was a one-on-one class, so I was able to sit next to my student and do a tile with her rather than use a display board. I often use Florz as one of the first teaching tangles. After class, I realized I could also use my tile to play with the weekly Diva challenge, and ended up with Soccs on the Florz, which I thought was kind of cute. I then did another tile with only the Soccs on the Florz (with a few extra squares in squares to make the dents).
   Thank you, Erin and Laura for another fun challenge.
