Weekly Challenge #369


I don't know.

We're nearing the end of September and i'm about ready to throw in the towel.

Last week, Artoo was feeling well enough to go to school - except then it was Chewie's turn to be home sick... and Saturday night Artoo developed a temperature and by sunday morning he was sick. again.

So.  done.  with.  this.

and with that in mind, i'm going to continue on with my September of Self Care Tangling, and this week's challenge is another one that helps me relieve stress.

Weekly Challenge #369: Orb-tastic
Last week's challenge of straight lines led me to my other self soothing drawing practice, which is to draw orbs
Feel free to interpret this however you like. Add orbs into your tiles this week.  In my travels around the internet and in teaching the art of zentangle i have come to discover that people either LOVE drawing littler circles, or they HATE it.

Which one are you?

have a great week everyone!
And if you're on the Zentangle Mosaic App or Instagram - i'm @iamthediva - come on by and follow me, and i'm going to be using hashtags on the app for each of my weekly challenges. So if you're game - use the hashtag #DC369 (Diva Challenge #369) for your tile this week! You can also search in the app for people's contributions to the challenge by clicking on the hashtag from inside the app, or using the search function. 
If you have a blog or host your images on line (like on Flickr or Picassa or Pinterest), add the site-specific URL where your tile is posted to the linkey machine below! Don't forget to link back here so that others can join in the fun! (if you don't know how to find this, you can see my half assed tutorial here) Also, please feel free to come back often and visit the links of those people on the linkey machine - don't forget to leave a comment or feedback, everyone loves feedback. ;) 
If you love the challenge as much as i do, please consider leaving a tip (tip jar in the side bar). I write this blog for free and have no plans to make it a paid for service in the future. Buy me a cup of coffee, or a new Micron pen!! Click the tip jar on the side for a monthly tip, but if you just wanna throw a few bucks my way THIS LINK will give you a one time option. A very big thank you to those who have kept me in hot cups of joe. ;)

  8. Love the challenge this week Laura! Thanks so much. Hope all are healthy again in your home very soon.

  9. Sometimes you just need to say "eff it" and draw circles until your brain is numb (in a good way).😊
    Have a glass of wine and just own the suckiness for a minute. It (usually) seems not as bad on the other side. Cheers to October for you, lady!

  10. I didn't get the straight lines done last week but when you said orbs this week I knew I had to catch up and do both!


tangle me some zen, baby!!
