Artful Wednesday Again

Welcome back to Artful Wednesday once again. It's been the weirdest week...First, it felt like it was taking forever to get to today, since I'd done the Zendala challenge over the weekend, then the Diva's Challenge went up a day late, so I had to seriously sit my butt down tonight to get a tile finished to post! From one extreme to the other, but viola! I made it and here are the pics:

The Diva's Brayd Challenge-Brayd being, well, the braid looking portion, ala Shelly Beach, one of my fave tanglers! Toss in a little Mooka, Rain, Nipa, Mysteria, and Scoodle and call it done!
 This week's Zendala dare over at the Bright Owl, was to do your Zendala in honor of a loved one who's had or is battling cancer. My dad lost his fight to lung cancer almost four years ago--where does the time go??? So this one's for him-all the tangle patterns began with 'D', for Don or Dad:
Daggerly, Dekor, and Drupe, then some simple dots and diamonds to fill in the rest...I think he would like it =0)
 I filled in the rest of the week with a couple other little projects. I had drawn the string for this zentangle for a Diva challenge that was to be done with concentric circles. I had gotten so overwhelmed by all the circles, I couldn't process any further what to do with this tile until now. A simple duo-tangle using Striping and Knightsbridge:

Then this little number was inspired by a magnet I saw at Books-a-Million last week, another page down in my art journal! Yeah! My sister-in-law loved it so much, she requested prints, which I'm hoping to mail off to her later this week....


I think I'm gonna do my new kitchen in MA in a coffee theme...


So that's what I've been up to this week. I hope you enjoyed everything. Sad note: I didn't win anything at the farm show on my zendala, but it still got me a free admission, and I met the sweetest sheep that I think must've been part dog--I never knew such  friendly sheep! Seriously wanted to sneak her home with me...Yeah, that's what I need--not!! Hahaha! Have a great rest of the week! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  5. all of these are really terrific but I must admit my favorite is the magnet inspired one. I always go for the really graphic bold ones! Thanks for doing my IA challenge, I love your work.

  6. All of these are quite lovely. The zentangle flows, and the tribute to your Dad is very nice. Love the coffee one too.

  7. You actually have a very cool representation of lots of different 'styles' of tanlging and using the zentangles to make art. Each is cool in its own way. Visiting from IA and so glad I did!
