Moebius Syndrome Awareness Day

  Joey is running an alphabet challenge and even though I'm not too keen on the alphabets, I thought I'd still join in the fun on the tangles. So here's Dicso (no, not "disco"... It's a tangle that is drawn using the five elemental strokes- a dot, line, curve, reverse curve, and a sphere... or what we simply know as "ICSO". So the name is pretty fitting.)

The tile is up for swapping. If you're interested in having it and completing it, let me know in the comments section below. I'd love to have this tile as a swap for the Travelling Tangles Project. Done on an original Zentangle tile and colours were added with Coloursoft coloured pencils.

  Today, is  Moebius Syndrome Awareness Day, and in a show of support, the Diva has asked the Zentangle community to create tiles using the Moebius Syndrome Foundation's logo as our string. Here's mine, paired with my simplified version of Diva Dance Rock and Roll:
I added purple watercolours in the background as it is the colour for MSAD.

  Lastly, I've been practicing my typography and have been creating lots of works. I've also recently started a bullet journal, of sorts. It's very loosely based on the original bullet journal idea and I've just been doing what works for me. Here's a page from it with a quote by Rumi:
"Stop acting so small... You are the universe in ecstatic motion."

  I hope it acts as a reminder to you to keep reaching for bigger goals and to keep dreaming bigger dreams. Until next week, my lovelies... Keep tangling! :)

burst of colours

  This week's challenge from the Diva was to use the tangle "Drawings" (pronounced "Draw Wings"). I added my simplified version of Diva Dance Rock and Roll (step-outs to it can be found here), and some shading with coloured pencils.
I used a wonderful ATC-sized tile sent to me from Anne Marks as part of the Travelling Tangles Project. She did the background using watercolours.

  Anne Marks also sent me another ATC tile, but this time, with a beautiful red background. I added Cadent using a Uni-ball Signo white pen.I also added shading to it using coloured pencils on the outside edges of the Cadent.

  You should definitely join the fun over on the Travelling Tangles Project's Facebook page. You'll get to swap tiles with people from all around the globe.

playing catch up

  Goodness, how time flies. It's been a while since you last heard from me, eh? Here's a small part of what I've been up to in the past month or so.

... I completed my November Tanglelendar beautifully. December's page didn't go so well and I abandoned ship. But January's page has been alright. As always, you can download your own free template of the calendar via this link.

... I made Christmas gifts for my family and friends.

... And I held holiday classes. Here's some tiles that I did with a group of kids (and two of their teachers) from a student care centre.

  I hope 2017 is starting off in a great way for you, and that your year will be filled with creativity, happiness, and good health. I'll be back to my regular posting from now- once a week post, at minimum. Plus, I'll be back to posting on my YouTube channel soon, too.
