100th YouTube Tangle Lesson Video with the Tangle "Gourdgeous" coming October 6,

I love Pumpkin and all things made with pumpkin, no chocolate chips please. 

So when I was trying to decide what to draw as my 100th video the tangle pattern "Gourdgeous" was my first choice.

Maria Thomas developed this tangle, what a fun one.

  You can make it look like a pumpkin if you make the first stroke a "C" and then just follow the steps. 


Here are some close up of "Gourdgeous" my style, a little white Gelly Roll pen, charcoal white by general's and Prismacolor Terra Cotta. 



I love to make orbs or circles.  I do them on almost everything.  You can't go wrong with an orb.

Be Joyful with the a new tangle pattern "Joyful" by Melinda Barlow CZT


I  presented at a conference this a few weeks ago, "Joyful Living Women's Conference" I was having trouble thinking of what to teach.  Yes I am teaching the art of Zentangle. 
When I did the Typography of "Be Joyful" I knew my presentation and workshop would fall right in to place.

I can't decide what to do color or shade so you get to see the unfinished ZIA. 

Here are the step outs to a new tangle I did for the conference.  "Joyful" is a Nzppel gone wild, as one of my fellow CZT's called it.


Here is the template for the typography for this project. I will be doing a video on this tangle pattern will be coming soon.

Families are like Fudge...

With the first days of October at hand.  My thoughts turn to Family and Fudge.  I teach a class at the library every year called "Oh! Fudge" where we make all kinds of candy.  This will be our 12th year.  This tangle post is in honor of Families and Fudge.



Here is the template so you can create your own tangle.
