Merry Happy

Even though I have not posted many of my Diva Challenges lately today is a good time to post the last Challenge for 2013.  The Diva is taking a well deserved break for the holidays.  Challenge 148 is Merry Happy - create a tile or ZIA for our own holidays.  If my artistic skill went beyond the Zentangle method it would have been fun to create something less abstract but I'll stick with what I know and what I have time for at this time of year. 


Merry Happy Everyone!

 Use your imagination for the glitter highlights

 
While I have not been tangling with pen in hand I've been busy with my woodburner creating gifts and requests.  Here's some of what I've been up to and best get back to if I plan to get them all finished. Enjoy - and hope all of you have a joyous time celebrating your holidays.

Hi - pleased to find your site, thanks for dropping by mine. Lovely Christmas tile - and I am blown away by your beautiful wooden plates. I adore wooden plates and bowls and, having newly discovered Zentangle, these are my idea of a perfect Christmas present. Wish I could have one. If I was nearer, I would, they're gorgeous. Axxx

Not only are your designs inspired, your execution is sublime! As an amateur pyrographer, I know how hard it is to make those images so perfect. Very nice work, indeed. Thank you for sharing and thus inspiring!

Your work is exquisite! it amazes me how many crafts you can combine with zentangle inspired art. Have a lovely Christmas!

Like the tile. What did you use for the snow mounds on the bottom? Is it a gel pen? The plates look great. Will bend your ear sometime about these. I like all the designs. The Quib looks great.

Lovely tile, but the wood burning is just exquisite! What lucky folks to get such a beautiful gift! Merry Christmas to you.

Oh my goodness - those coasters are AWESOME! What a fabulous idea to use the woodburner - I bet it is a little nerve wracking as you must be precise and probably have to move at a very steady pace to get an even line. You did marvelously!

These are beautiful! I've done a lot of wood burning, and have just recently discovered tangling. This is very inspiring!

Hi Suzanne, Hope your 2014 is starting well! I did not get a wood burner for xmas. . . but think i'll have to try something with my cheap craft one on a basswood plate from Michaels. I love yours so much, I'll just have to play and practice and see if there's any hope for me! Thanks for doing all the work for the Diva's slide shows, i'm enjoying them.
