I chose Scrumble, Purk and a Neil Burley tangle called Victile. It gave me a run for my money. Thought I'd pick a grid tile and this one was a lot of precision which is not my middle name! I'm happy with how it turned out. Thanks!!

I once had a rare form of a dianthus flower commonly called 'pinks' for their frilled edges, and it was yellow. Yellow was the most rare variety of them all. They have since 'melted' as perennials do, but I enjoyed them ever so much while they were there.

I picked one of my favorites by Neil Burley called 'LM', and Verve by the artist focus subject. My tiles have been a bit on the larger side you may notice, but I have found while my wrist isn't quite ever going to be right again, drawing on a larger space helps alleviate the pain. Thanks for understanding I hope! Those 3.5 inch tiles can be torturous with this chronic wrist pain issue. I had lots of fun with the tangles and challenge as always.

From what it translated to, I gathered that I should make six 3cmx3cm boxes and do a single tangle pattern in each and then tangle natural things around it.
I used N 'Zeppl, Pea Nuckle, Bunzo, seZ, Rixty, and Arukas in the squares.
I used blooming butter, all about v leaves, aura leaf, flower whorl, Florez, clouds, Aquee, and that's it!
Materials used, pencil, colored pencil, micron pen, moonlight pen, glaze pen, soufflé pen metallic silver pen, white GellyRolls, and glitter pen on card stock.
Thank you for a fun challenge although I can't swap with you, I will swap with my mother's friend who lives near me and has not been well. It's color will cheer her up!

I used the string! On a 3.5x3.5 inch tile, on white, with a 01 Sakura black pen and pencil to draw the original lines in. This is a triumph in my tangling history personally. Never thought I could do something that kind of looks like what all of you great artists do seemingly so easily! Thanks for the challenge Ms. Bruno. Today I Zentangled! :)

The cruelty to animals I have seen at the circus comes to mind. Seeing an elephant with a chain around its leg still haunts me. These wild animals, kept in cages, around so much unnatural noise, never allowed to see the sky, hear the birds or feel the sun on their backs as they lay in the grass is a tragedy. I'm very disappointed in this subject for this week. :(

I am drawing with my hand in a wrist brace, so I had to glamorize it up a bit to make up for my shortcomings in accuracy. I enjoyed myself with this challenge so much I didn't notice the pain that much. It was nice! Loved the tangles, Ms. Bruno's and Rixty. They will get a lot of use! (Scroll to 3rd picture for finished piece. )
I showed how I limped along for two hours with my bandaged wrist with how I started in my sketchbook to the tile with a string and the finished piece. Hey. I can only get out one tile a day. I'm bored!!
A little project I framed for my Mom. I'm 38 but still like the little girl who runs home from school with a picture she colored for mom. She has always been my greatest support in many things but always encouraging in my artistic pursuits. She bought me all of my first Zentangle books before I heard of it and bought me supplies to start with. Every tangle has a part of her in it in my heart.

My wrist is injured and in a brace so my tangles aren't so hot. I made them sparkle though. Word to the wise, never bend your wrist backwards behind your shoulder to pick something up off the nightstand. You'll end up with 5 fingers going in 5 directions. :(

I did water lily and wengz. It's not my best work as I'm drawing with a wrist brace from injuring my hand. Might be last tile for a few days. I either give it a break for a week, or have surgery on my wrists. Going to try the wrist brace. Not much for surgery!

I did Ixorus in several patterns in different contrast in colors within patterns. Or something like that. :)
A special thank you to Suzanne for the book and tiles from the raffle! I'm enjoying them a lot. Used the first tile for this challenge. Thanks again, it was a really special and thoughtful!

This one (Entwined),seemed daunting at first but as I went through it in my sketchbook it really was logical and made sense. Used a recent one that had a connected feel to it, Blooming Butter. Sakura Gelly Rolls, and colored pencil on black tile.

I used all three tangles although at first I grumbled a bit seeing Tripoli on the list. But I thought this is what a challenge is all about. The string was and is always a challenge, so if I can handle those with more confidence now, then onto defeating Tripoli! And yes, I had an 'a-ha!' moment while doing the tangle. The light bulb in my head went on! I used reds and blues and off whites and silver in honor of the Fourth of July. Thanks for another great challenge! Excited for #100!
Use three to five tangles using the letter B. I chose B-Tweed, Blox, Blossoms, and Birch. I had a very nice time. I used watercolor, pencil,colored pencils, pen and Gelly Roll pens. Thanks for letting me participate!
