Diva's Challenge #345 Happy Holidays

Seasons greetings from Dorset (UK)
Thanks to Laura for her weekly challenges and for reaching 7 years!

I have missed quite a lot this year although I have still been doing some tangling.  Hubby has had various surgical procedures and has just finished 6 months of preventative chemotherapy.  All good news now as the last scan is clear and he is looking forward to this year without too many hospital trips! 
I have to own up it is quite a relief and looking back makes me realise how hard it has been.

I can feel a bit more travel coming up next year  - we are off soon to Tenerife for some luxury rest & recuperation.

I have a new kraft paper sketch book.  The paper is quite heavy and a bit darker than others I have used but I think it will be ok.
Happy Holiday Zendala

I did this one last week

Happy New Year

Diva's Challenge #338 White on Black

I love white on black and I have a pad of 6 inch square Strathmore tiles which are great with gel pens.  I am looking forward to the new pens being available in the UK as a finer pen will be brilliant.

I'm enjoying drawing on Kraft paper again with gel pens and coloured  pencils

Have a great week and thanks for passing by

A late addition
I have just been experimenting with salt water etching on to copper.  Very simple, not toxic and easy to do.

Diva's Challenge 311 Squares and Circles

I have missed a few weeks posting but I have managed to do some drawing.  My hubby has been in hospital having major surgery.  He had a gall bladder op earlier this year and there was a tumour in it so he has had some preventative internal nip & tuck.  (Rather an understatement) He came home last Monday evening and he is feeling a bit better each day. He has been told no lifting for over 2 months. So he will be pretty frustrated in another few weeks.

I always like circles so my first tile is a square in a circle. The second one is the other way round and turned into a Zendala. Because the inner parts were drawn freehand they don't quite match up. But never mind it was still zenful!

My sketchbook has lots of trials of the some recent tangles but not all made it into tiles. The other ones below are some challenges and some just for relaxing
