It's ok to share things you are still working on!

Sometimes we have projects that take a while, well... at least I do.
If you are so inclined, please feel free to post those as your creative, it doesn't mean you aren't creative if you didn't finish!

I was thinking I might start doing some Vine videos of tangle patterns if you're interested, let me know what you think in the comments! Maybe 1 per week?
Today, it's not in Vine form but paper, I wanted to share with you my new tangle. I call it Away-sis and it was inspired by a small patch of green leafy foliage.
It looks a bit like Quandry (which is NOT at all Zen-like for me to create) but you get there in a completely different way.

Anyway here is my work in progress for your viewingtoday! Mandalas for my art journal.

I have a long way to go on it, but I'm pleased with where it is going.

Today's Bijouism is my favorite.


Imagine the thought that I could inspire someone else to draw, when they absolutely knew they could not, no way, never, no how . . . even draw a straight line. Of course, you may never have to draw a straight line in the Zentangle Method, but I suppose you could if you wanted to. Sometimes, what I think is just a "so so" Zentangle creation, may awaken the artistry in another simply by just being there, at the right time. Imagine . . . me, Bijou, being (or should that be snailing?) an inspiration to someone else. C'est magnifique!


  1. I love your tangle - I just used it in the Spoondala, still working on that.

    Today, I have another in my Circular grid tangles, Eye-Wa.

    1. I'm so glad you like it! (I still need to work on my spoondala!) Love your circular grid tangles! It's really making me rethink some of my "standbys"

  2. I just wanted to quickly post a pic on pinterest of what I did today and then get to bed at a decent time today.... That was 50 minutes ago... Why do I always fall into the pinterest-trap??

    Anyways... I've been practicing new tangles with M for the that's-new-to-me challenge... Learned 6 new ones. Well 5, because one of them I just couldn't get right... But fell in love with Maryhill... Looks so cool and is great to draw...

    Your new tangle looks nice, Kelly. I will have to try it tomorrow.

    1. Because Pinterest is an alternate dimension that steals hours from your life? :D :D :D I do it too....
      I hope you like the new one. :) It's fun to do!

  3. Looking forward to trying that tangle tomorrow. I love the name!

  4. Love this tangle....you are so prolific!
