Getting Back on Track-Zentangle Thurzday

I know I've been a bit quiet here lately--it's just been a little busy with friends in for the weekend and naturally, we spent the whole time playing--what else would we do?? Too fun! And so thankful for gorgeous weather (for the most part) that let us wander and explore around town and chill at the beach. It all just went way too fast!

But I've been busy busy this week catching up and have quite a slew of mail art to post for Monday (haha--gotta come back if you want to see it!) and I did a little tangling, too! Jane from OneTangle is way, way, way ahead of me--she's got a full month of strings posted and I've only managed to make it to strings nine and ten:

 
String nine on the left I did a simple doodle fill just to play around and, well, not exactly crazy about it...String ten on the right I did another Ixorus monotangle but I have to say, I really like the previous one I did much better.

Then Ms. Laura posted the week's Diva Challenge to use CZT Jane MacKugler's pattern Henna Drum this week. I've always loved the look of Henna Drum but for some reason never really played with it, so this was a fun excuse to finally give it a go:

 
I did the centers and petals in sepia but it doesn't want to show up very well for some reason...This was definitely a fun pattern and I look forward to playing with it again in the future! Another great Diva Challenge!

Looks like the rain is heading our way for the next couple of days but should be clearing up for the Art Drive happening here this weekend in Westport and Dartmouth, which is another open studio tour that I'm really looking forward to seeing! Next weekend is the second half of the South Coast Open Studio tour that we did in July--can't wait for that as well!! I couldn't sleep after the last time--the whole night my brain just swam with all the beautiful art we'd seen that day! So cool...I know I've said it before, but I'll say it again--I totally love living here!!

Back to the drawing table again today--more cards to make and, hopefully some more tangles to play with, although I also need to pay some attention to Tammy's Daily Paper Prompts at Daisy Yellow--I'd almost forgotten trying to catch up on other projects! Must Play!! Life is good...Have a super great Thursday--come back again soon!
