Iamthediva #126 challenge

After ... how many years and I am finally posting a Iamthediva challenge. I've completed the challenge in the past, but don't take the next step. So here is my first!

Here is the Stencil I used: it was part of an old painting, and quilting stencil I had.



I have been taking the time to tangle again. Hmm. Really, I have been thinking of the future, and the next classes I will take, the break I will get in the summer, future zentangle classes....

It is interesting how the studying I am doing impacts my day to day life. I am finishing up my professional ethics class, which... of course, how can it not affect you? Integrity, developing ethical responses from internalized values, and understanding moral decision making is part of everyday life. It is not something that pops up when you deal with those you serve, but every person you meet, every interaction you have.

May your tangles take you to a thoughtful place. Deb

  2. Hi Deb - Love the stencil you used, and your completed tile. It reminds me of a dream catcher. Glad to see you posting for the dare. In the fall of 2011 I took one of your Zentangle classes and I've been passionate about Zentangle ever since. Your class started me on an unexpected path and has given me endless hours of "Zen".

  9. Really like the organic nature of your first tile. Like how the tangles emanate from the corner.

  10. While both pieces are beautiful, I tended to go back to the first one. I think it's because I do love flowers. I really like that one the best.
