What kind of friend would I be if I didn't share this wonderful Zentnagle inspired art (ZIA) Mr. Chameleon by my good friend LeeAnn Denzer, She is a beautiful artist and has been assisting me in teaching my Zentangle art classes this summer. She had to miss the class yesterday do to a previous engagement but as you can see she kept busy. The template is from the weekly downloads by Ben Knok on Ornations Creation Facebook Page be brave and give it a try.Thanks LeeAnn for this wonderful piece of art.

Facebook Page. My students have had a ball leaning to tangle and then adding what they learned to one of Ben's templates. Here are some of the tiles we did in our 12 week class.
I love to teach the traditional zentangle on a 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 tile. I try to mix it up a bit by using some not so well know tangles.
When I draw my borders and strings I always get this little bump on the left side of my border, I don't move my finger just draw around it. As you will see on the next few tiles.
Mooka is one of my favorite tangles. I love how it fills in so much space is such a short time. Like the wings on the Hummingbird.
When I taught this one Paradox it was a big hit. Love the unexpected look you get with just straight lines.
Last week I started to teach the bottom right tangle and made a mistake on the first stroke, a class member said not to worry, just do "Puf" by Carol Ohl. I have to say there are no mistakes in Zentangle!
Now if you follow this blog and you are taking my classes you are getting a sneak peek at lesson Eleven. we are doing Flux, Pais, Scena, Sez, and Pintemps. Can you find them in the two tiles? I love doing the new Renaissance color and with the white and brown pens it is so much fun.
What do you think of tangling on gray paper? This was one I had lots of fun with. Love the white pen on the gray. I did this Kingfisher twice and loved both.
