Footsteps to Follow

Whoa­—summer is already halfway over, for us here in Tennessee anyway. For this post, I (Caroline Broady) am guest-writing for Tanglefish. I just got back home from the 11th CZT training seminar, which intensified my interest in Zentangle. I had a great time and met a lot of fascinating people. I am super excited to explore different outlets, which include starting my own blog. Right now, my biggest obstacle is finalizing a name. Until then, keep checking here. I know Mom (Amy) is eager to post about our family adventures.
                                  
Birdie Feet and Hollibaugh



With those updates out of the way, I can share my submission to this week’s challenge from the Diva: UMT v. XVIII Birdie Feet. Owl Loving April's tangle is representational, so I made my tile accordingly. (Usually, I head for the abstract, rather than literal, patterns.) I had a lot of fun with shading and used my tortillon a bunch. I love how just a little bit of strategically-applied graphite can bring a tile to life.




Now that my mom has “retired”, she has a lot more time to spend doing other things she cares about, including taking on the Zentangle for Kidz Blog. (Read more about CZT Training #11 on her latest ZT kidz post here.) We really want to increase interest/activity, so check it out and spread the word. If you visit, we'd love for you to leave a comment. :-)
