Whispering Aloha to Challenges

I've met the challenge and I'm it. I find that my Zentangle network of friends and the time that I spend on the internet trying to keep up with them has grown. In fact I spend more time on my computer than with my Zentangle art. Does this sound familiar to you?

Two of my fellow Certified Zentangle Teachers have posted a challenge that I have been hesitating to reply to. Donna Hornsby Pegasus Papers has issued a challenge that we post one Zentangle® work of art each week in the Facebook Certified Zentangle Teachers group.

Laura Harms has issued a Weekly Zentangle Challenge on facebook and on her blog I am the diva

I already have two blogs Heinani's Weblog ~ Zentangle and Cat's Cradle and this blog Whispers of Aloha and a webpage of my own The Ancient Art of Hawaiian String Figures

Plus 21 lenses on Squidoo HUNArt. Not to mention Facebook and Twitter where as Lois Stokes and Heinani I Whisper Aloha and post in the HUNArt Store a Zentangle inspired Art~a~Day, every day.

I try to keep up with the latest patterns and with my fellow CZT® and most importantly with Rick and Maria's Zentangle  and Blog Zentangle

The Challenge has been put forth and what should I do? Well jump in and see where this river flows.

Here are my entries to the Weekly Zentangle Challenge:

Week 1 ~ Simplicity
  I had real trouble being simple ~ This was a real challenge for me


Week 2: Two pencils producing a double string
I started off with a simple double Z ~ things got more complicated than I had anticipated. Noticing a pattern here ~ I seem to be making things more difficult than they need to be ~ I wonder what other areas of my life this pattern exists...

Aloha! As always, your commentary and self insight is humbling, "Whispers". I ♥ your work. We must 'sit' some time together (on the interweb) and chat about art therapy and healing together (a passion we share). I come away inspired, as ever. I'm so glad you're joining "The Diva's" fun challenges! Namaste, Kit

Whispering Aloha to you Kit. Would love to talk about art and healing. Will look for you on facebook where we can chat. Have a very special new year. Namaste

Love your tangles! I thought I had commented but as Kit will tell you I've been a bit brain addled with lack of sleep LOL. I love how you use black in your tangles...I've been thinking about this myself. Simplicity is just plain intriguing and I like how you've left the double string untangled except for the triangular bends.

Whispering Aloha to you Melissa. Mahalo for stopping by and for your support. I just visited your blog and find your tangles fun and full of energy. You left me wondering what a pencast is. I love mysteries ~ can't wait to see your next post.

Love these tangles and am also fascinated by the next post about the autograph tree leaves. Gorgeous photo - do you score the leaves when they are green and then they dry to that lovely taupe?

I like this tangle very much, especially the z string with tangles reversed on each side. Super!

Heinani said...

Whispering Aloha to you arts4all ~ yes I use a bamboo knitting needle to etch the designs. A golden liquid and fragrant aroma comes from the leaf when I do this. Then the process of change begins and takes about a week.
