Sommer-Sonne- Zentangle und Fußball! Summer-Sun-Zentangle and the FIFA World Cup...


I am so proud to show you a report which has been published in the German Journal "bella (Nr.25)" this week.
The editor of this report has attended a Zentangle Class in January and she was so impressed by Zentangle that she decided to write this report. Thank you!!






Some days ago I contributed to Adele Bruno's IAST Challenge. The theme was Helen William`s tangle "String Grid" - I love it!



Yesterday I read the latest post by the DIVA here on her blog.
I was deeply impressed by her words and I can underline every word she wrote. Thank you Laura, for your brave words and for this post. I am sorry that my English skills do not allow to express my thoughts exactly but I hope you can understand it well.
I also felt sometimes that we have instantly some stress... even when we do our beloved hobby. 
We do not only draw- this is fun! We post and blog and comment each other...
At the beginning ogf my Zentangle Journey I loved to do this every day, but now I realize a lot of "administrative work" around the drawing. 
Even though I love to be a part of the Zentangle family with all the aprreciation I decided to reduce the blogging and commenting to a lover level. I am sorry for that but I hope you all will understand.

I wish you, Laura all the Best. 
You are such a powerful wife, mother , artist .... and sometimes it is to much for one person. I very much appreciate your blog and all your activities around it, the challenge...

Take you time as much as you need! We will miss your weelkly challenge but I will wait patiently until you feel fit for it again. It should not be  "work"...


Today I finished my Zentangle Project Pack#3 tile. I decided to use an Opus tile which is sized 3x3 "normal" tiles.
I am not so very satisfied by the result, but I show it here. I feel it is not complete yet, but I don`t fell like continueing. 

Some days ago I read an article about ecodyeing. I was so interested that I immediately started a first attempt, very easily. Some sheets of Fabriano paper, layered with onion shells, some plant parts and pressed them together. Then I cooked in boiling red tea (fruit tea). Look at the results- arn`t they stunning?! I am sure to play with this method again someday.





This is a real "relaxation" tile: 
Using only Well as a fragment in a rectangular grid... without any tangelations, on a ATC card.



Last not least I attach a little tangle on one of the ecodyed papers:
A tangle, which I dedicate to the match of the German Soccer team which is going to play it`s first match in the Fifa World Cup 2018 this afternoon.
This is my contribution to a successful match ... (hopefully! :-)



This summer is so beutiful this year- the nature shows uns some of it`s perfection:
