Doodle fever

OMG...what a week! You know the feeling you get when everything starts to go wrong and then it gets progressively worse...mine happened on Tuesday! A small bit of salvation was tangling this weeks Challenge and creating a Zendala using Suzanne McNeill's method from her Zentangle 7 book. You can see it here on this Youtube clip .

Tangles used: coral and teardrops from Creative Doodling with Judy West

Zendala without shading

My hubby finally came home on Monday after travelling for 48 hours! He flew from Austin, Texas to New York, spent 12 hours there...then to London, spent 12 hours there..and then home to Cape Town. The worst part of his trip was not knowing if he would be flying or not as Europe, Uk and USA were blanketed in snow and expecting more each day! The gannets and I were in London the week before and it was 2 degrees C - whic for us is COLD - his temp was -4!!
Green Park in London with Buckingham Palace at the other end...

...the same park a week later when Hubby was there!
Had to take this pic!

I'm busy with a ZIA of sorts in the style of Lex WIlson otherwise known as Major Lazor...his stuff is reallygood, his penmanship is amazing!
Otherwise the weekend is going to be a chilled one!

Happy creating


  1. Pearl and teardrop are so perfect for the Moebius string!

  2. thats a great tangle the combination of the 2 really work.

  3. Your tile is very nice. Thanks for sharing the photo's of London. I've been in UK quite a lot (my daughter lived there for many years, in London or close to it), but never went into the city :-)

  4. Your Moebius tile is so fun and fanciful, love these new tangles! Your Zendala is wonderful, great work.

  5. Nice choice of tangles for the Moebius strip.
