Diva Challenge #222

Diva Challenge #222

“Colours of the Rainbow” is this week’s I Am The Diva Challenge , and I couldn’t be happier! I love color. No, you don’t understand- I looooooove color! I love it so much that I started an Instagram hub (group) called @jj_colorful… Do visit. (Also one for Zentangle @heart.tangles )

So, without further delay, here is my entry- it is a bookmark (my first ever) that I made for my very dear friend of 31 years (can that be right?!?!? Yep it is!) in Illinois who always gets my “firsts.” It was her idea that I Google “Zentangle” as I was frustrated and stuck in my creativity – or lack thereof. By far the best Google search of my life!

She even received and even framed my first attempt, which wasn’t an official Zentangle® tile but something entirely different. I forgot to take a photo of it but she sent me one: 

Not very Zentangly but I gave it a serious try! And this pitcher was an accident! I simply closed my eyes and made one line. I close the line and started… And in a short time after turning it all ’round to tangle it, the pitcher emerged. It was quite apropos and a good symbol for our friendship. 

So, without any further ado, here is my bookmark:

I’m sorry if it is too big! I can’t figure out how to make it smaller.

I thought I’d better get this completed and posted today since I leave early Saturday morning for RHODE ISLAND! I’ll be attending and hopefully graduating the CZT20. That’s Certified Zentangle Teacher training number 20. It is a 12 hour drive and complicated due to my disabilities and medical conditions but my friend of 5 years here in Appalachia will act as my assistant. I’m so excited I can’t even sleep more than 5-6 hours a night!

Happy Tangling,

  2. I love your rainbow pitcher! And your bookmark is lovely too. Is there a challenge for that? How wonderful that you will be going to Rhode Island for CZT training! I just went to 19, and let me tell you, you’re going to LOVE it! Everyone is so friendly, happy, inspired, and all are humbled to be in such a talented group. Of course, the best thing is the privilege of being trained by the Masters themselves! They are amazing! Have a wonderful time!

    • Oh I cannot wait! I do already feel so inadequate so I have to be careful not to be overwhelmed by everyone else’s talent. I am sooo excited to be able to go!

      And actually, my bookmark was for the Diva challenge but maybe I misunderstood. I thought we could use anything on this one.


  3. Your first ZIA is great! I also used color the first time i tried to tangle, but since then I’ve been very black, grey and white. You obviously have a way with color, so this was a perfect challenge for you. Congratulations on attending the CZT 20 class. I think you’ll find it is well worth the long drive. You will learn and will meet some really nice people. I’m basing this on my experience at CZT 18. Safe travels.
