The second mandala for the month of August covers days 6-10. This mandala was pretty difficult when I got into it. I had to really think about how each pattern would fit into the mandala so that it flowed and looked decent enough. Here are the links for the next five patterns of this challenge … Read More
As you may be aware, this is my second month doing the Zen Art Challenge created by Mindful Creativity. I wanted to push myself to think outside the box and do something a little different with this month. I have decided to make a mandala out of each five day span. Below is a link … Read More
This is the fourth and final post on July’s Zen Art Challenge. There are a few things that I have taken away from this challenge. The first thing is that drawing every day is important, even if it is just a simple tangle on a scrap paper. Practice makes perfect and your skills will just … Read More
Yay! We have reached week 3 in this months challenge. I know I am late posting this but life is crazy right now and I left this post in my drafts section. Normally I schedule the post and it works out great, however, this time I failed miserably at it. I had been trying my … Read More
Here we are, week two of the Zen Art Challenge and I am very pleased with the way the first week went. This week seemed to push me a little future out of my comfort zone and forcing me to create pieces that I otherwise wouldn’t have attempted. This is great for me because I … Read More
I was in the middle of my day to day operations with my creative business when I received a message from my friend Shri informing me of this zen art challenge. I was a little hesitant because this is my birth month and typically is one of my busiest. But, with the relaxed rules, it … Read More
I created this pdf page so that you would be able to keep your patterns organized. I’ve looked all over and I have seen a bunch of how-to’s and such, but all of them require expensive notebooks and creating your own squares. Let me just say the one thing I agree with is creating the … Read More
I am using this page as a sampler of sorts. These are a few zentangle patterns that I have not used very much if at all. The outermost pattern is called Doozaly. The curtain pattern I have seen drawn so many times but this is the only time I have ever attempted it myself. I … Read More
What can you create in less than 45 minutes using the tangle “dansk”?
What can you create in less than 45 minutes?
What can you create in less than 45 minutes with the pattern, Pharro?
As you guys are well aware, I have a mere 45 minutes to doodle or unplug as I like to call it. I have been taking my Artists Tiles to work to do just that. This piece is pretty small, It is on a 3×3 square. Although it is blown up pretty big here, I … Read More
Zentangle is an art form that teaches you how to use relaxing strokes to create beautiful works of art. Sometimes you’ll see me referencing Zentangle as it has really taught me a lot about different techniques. I store my Zentangle Patterns in a photo book I purchased for barely anything. It holds standard sized photos … Read More
Here is a quick little doodle I did on an artist tile. It’s based off the zentangle pattern “Fancy Nancy.” I decided to turn them into flowers instead of the border I saw them done as. Tell me what you think about this little garden tile.
While creating this piece all I could think about was all the movies I have seen where the flowers could be the most dangerous part of a new planet. So, within my science fiction mind, I decided to create something from an unknown planet within my thoughts. What you do you think about it?
The story behind this drawing is that just as every snowflake is different, I have to believe that every raindrop is too. Each raindrop plays an important role in the survival of our planet. Without water, we would all surely perish. Although I am not an extremist in any way, I do believe that if … Read More

So, I did it, I decided that I was going to take the patterns that I use the most and create a sampler page using just those. I started this by just drawing a bunch of circles. After I drew all the circles, I just decided how I was going to split it up based … Read More
Another Zentangle sampler here. Just some of the tangles that I have really enjoyed using. What a better way to collaborate all the different patterns, than to join them together on a symbol of fall and thankfulness. Let me know if you have seen any of these tangle patterns before and which are your favorite … Read More

Well, this is not a challenge or anything like that. It’s just one of my random doodles. I love when it turns out so fun and simple. It also gives me a lot of practice with my patterns and fillers.
Ever since I started doing these spider webs, I can’t get enough of them. Maybe it is the time of the year with all the spooky decor, but I love drawing them and adding them to different pieces. This challenge was a lot of fun and of course, I got to add my webs. The … Read More
