I'm All "Tangled" Up....

This week's challenge at I am the Diva blogspot, is to learn a new tangle called Pendrills, which you can find here on the Zentangle blog.  I did the tile below with the new tangle...and added a few blooms....not sure why, but....mostly, because I could! LOL! I think I really like this new tangle.


This next photo was another new challenge for me.  It's called Mehndi.  I'd never heard of it, so I did a little research and decided to give it a try. (Mehndi is the traditional art of henna painting in India and the Middle East.)   I traced my left hand onto Bristol board and then proceeded to add a few tangles.  I really like how this came out...really cool!



Thanks so much for stopping by!  Your comments are welcomed and much appreciated!  Until next time....

Hugs!

Love your Pendrills: sometimes a Zentangle just Asks for something, like blooms!
And I love your mendhi hand: I really need to try this.
