Diva challenge --- STRIPES

San Diego CA doesn't usually get in the high 80's.  
Without air conditioning, it is too darn hot to do anything but tangle.  
This piece is done first tangled with my stencil pen.
 Then two watercolor pencils and a brown sharpie for depth.

Look what I just got!!!

Thank you Suzanne Wilka for the find of a great lap easel.  
My first tangle using this amazing addition.
The easel brings your work closer to you (it is adjustable)
so better posture tangling and the angle makes seeing your work
(without having to be on top of your piece) so convenient..  -- yipee.

Square One: Purely Zentangle®

I love this Facebook site.  Square One:  Purley Zentangle® represents the basics of this beautiful art/therapy.  A 3.5 x 3.5 white tile with black Micron pen.
The patterns used were Locomotive, Hearty and Mooka and Bales.
Simple, basic, interesting.

Flower Power

Rain in San Diego, California is unusual. 
My flowers loved all the moisture we had today.
We have a water usage limit, so a deep watering is much needed.. 
My tile today is all about flowers. 
It is very hard not to apply color on a tile full of flowers.
