Zendala: Celtic Flow

Thanks so much for visiting! I just finished this Zendala which was started in Margaret Bremner's workshop at the Retreat to Paradise. She is so inspiring! This piece was started from a template made out of a folded paper snowflake and traced onto the drawing paper. Then I divided the various areas with Zentangle strings. This part of the process was fascinating because there are so many possibilities for the design. I hope you like it!

Retreat to Paradise~~ Bliss!

We just finished three days of tangling bliss at the Retreat to Paradise, organized by Jo-Ellen Matthews in Indialantic, Fl. What amazing group of creative people! Instructors included Meredith Yunas ("organic tangles" plus "mindfulness"), Margaret Bremner ("Zentangle Inspired Mandalas"), and Cherryl Moote ("Playbooks"). We also had a chance to experiment with watercolors, shrink plastic, and tangling on a ceramic heart. This was my first Zentangle retreat, and my brain is full of new ideas, connections, and friends! 
It was wonderful to meet many 'online' friends in person!

Have a wonderful, creative day!
