A note from Diane Lachance, CZT: Zentangle is a simple and easy key to unlocking the door to creativity for people who may have closed that door for a variety of reasons. By learning Zentangle, students can gain basic drawing skills as well as the confidence needed to be successful in many art forms.

Challenge #76 In Celebration of Home and July 4
This first tile I drew some time ago. It wasn't until after I completed the tile that I saw the resemblance to pine trees, rolling hills, an ice scattered river and orchards. All of these can be found around my home.
This second piece is from a poster I created for a Community Zentangle I am coordinating for my town's July Fourth celebration. Click HERE to see the poster.
Using the pattern Cūr•d, I enhanced my original tile with a border and a red heart.
Challenge # 13 Non-Dominant Hand
What came to mind, as I was working on this challenge, is a quote that appears on one of my students emails: "Our strength is often composed of the weakness we're damned if we're going to show." - Mignon McLaughlin Thank you Joyce!
Challenge #11 - Monotangle
Challenge #8 - Hearts for Artoo!
Challenge #6 - Ixorus
Challenge #5 - Orbs
Challenge #4 - Starry Eyed Surprise
Challenge #3 - String with Eyes Closed
Challenge #2 - Two Pencil String
I thought Echoism was a "fitting" tangle for this challenge.
This has been great fun. Remember, there are no musts in Zentangle. Participate at any level you wish. Not all the tiles I am showing here made it into Laura's photo gallery. Some weeks, life just isn't that flexible. I may get to a challenge after the deadline. I may not have time to scan the results in time to submit them. Or, I may not have time at all.
Be good to yourselves and join in at any level, if this looks like fun!
