Zentangle challenge #76

Click here to see more information about this weeks' challenge which is all about home. We could represent it any way we wanted. I chose to represent the location where I currently live - about 50 miles outside of Nashville, Tennessee.

I guess Nashville is most famous for country music, so I used a guitar for my zentangle "string".

I'm not really a huge fan of country music, per se, but I do love any kind of music with a guitar played well. I just love the sound of an acoustic guitar.

And I do love the Tennessee landscape. We are in a more rural area with rolling hills, old barns, and horses grazing in green pastures. (Well, not so green this summer since it is so hot and dry!) Here's a quick rough little sketch.

This week we were to use the pattern called cadent and even try different variations of it. I didn't come up with any new variations but did have fun with it. It's a great pattern to use.

Here's my first tile. The square cadets are falling out of formation!

And here's just a fun zentangle inspired tile filled in with colored pencils.

Zentangle Challenge #74

Finally have something ready to post for the Diva's challenge this week. More info is found here. This was not the first tile I started. My first one had so many eccentric layers it got too detailed and I didn't think it looked very good. I'm much happier with this one. Another great challenge.

Zentangle Challenge #73

Click here to view more about the Diva's weekly challenge #73. We were to use the pattern called Bridgen. It is a fun free-form pattern that's all about the process; and very relaxing. I can't wait to see every body's results.

Woo hoo! I also got a new set of pens this week and now have a sepia pen!

Thanks for all of your continued encouragement. I really enjoy our little space of the Internet each week!
