Challenge 41 "Opus and Jonqal"

This is another one of those challenges pairing two tangles that are very different from each other.  Jonqal is bold with straight lines and Opus is soft, curly and gentle.  Well they can co-exist and actually compliment each other in the same zentangle.
Thank you Laura for yet another great challenge.  I love the challenges where we all use the same tangles and explore the possibilities each one holds

Challenge 40 "World Peace Day"

The challenge this week was to do a pinwheel for peace to celebrate World Peace Day. [Sept. 21]I'm just a day late, but then it's never too late for peace.  I added some olive branches to my pinwheel in hopes that they would help the world achieve peace.  Maybe if all people would do zentangles then peace would come one person at a time. It never hurts to dream.

Challenge 38 "pair o ducks"

The challenge this week was called "pair o Ducks" to make a pun on the tangle "paradox", one of my favorites.  It was a thrill to be able to participate this time after an 11 week dry spell.  Sometimes life just gets in the way of what you want to be doing.  I'm attaching the non-shaded version too, so you can see the difference that shading makes.
