Inchie "Myth" and Tangle on Something Unexpected!!

I finally got myself organized to do two creative art challenges! Woohoo! I've been trying to figure out this fall how to juggle working full-time, teaching Zentangle on Wednesday nights (which is super fun) and of course being there for my family. ;) 

I've missed participating in both the Every Inchie Monday challenge and the Diva's Weekly challenge. It's been way too long. They are always so much fun to do! Here are my entries.

This week's theme for Every Inchie Monday Challenge is "Myth." I decided to draw a flying broom, since one of my favorite holidays is coming up next month.  

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #236 is "Tangle on Something Unexpected!" 
I've seen other people tangle on leaves before and decided to try it out for myself. I'm really happy with my leaf. :) 

Hope you enjoy them and have a wonderful upcoming week. :)

String Theory Class with Great Purks!

Zentangle 101 - Week 2

We had a great String Theory Class this past Wednesday night with some great Purks! Check out these beautiful creations featuring the lovely tangle, Purk, in the accompaniment of other merry tangles. Stay tuned for a fun holiday inspired project that my students will be doing next Wednesday. :)

My First Zentangle Class was a Blast!

This past summer I went Providence, RI to become a CZT (Certified Zentangle Teacher). The experience of attending CZT Seminar 21 and being welcomed into the Zentangle family was awesome! I'm so happy I had the amazing opportunity to go and am so thankful for the love and support of my extended family and friends. Thank you! :)

Now that I'm an official CZT, I was able to teach my first Zentangle class at my local community art center (Jan Dempsey Community Art Center, Auburn, AL) this past Wednesday, September 16. It was so much fun! I've had a couple of practice classes with family and friends over the summer too. Here are some pictures from both my first class and practice classes. (Sorry I've been away from blogging for so long. Just had a lot on my plate ;)

Zentangle 101 - Week 1 Class

We had such a great time Wednesday night! I have 3 students and they created 2 tiles each using patterns Crescent Moon, Hollibaugh, Bales, Printemps, Shattuck, 'Nzeppel, and Diva Dance (one of my favorites). Their tiles look amazing! Wonderful job ladies! :)
