As If I Could Forget

Dilip Patel, one of the regulars in the Diva's Design challenges, often uses the challenges to add to his Zentangled Ganesha series.  Dilip, although this design is not a true Ganesha, I did it in your honor.  Namaste!  I am linking this up to Inspiration Avenue, where the prompt is "perfectly pink." 


Since I wrote this post, I learned that Dilip's father passed after struggling with cancer. My heart goes out to Dilip and his family.  May your memories always be a source of joy and the love of those around you always be a source of strength and comfort. 

The Diva's challenge this week was hosted by Erin Koetz Olson.  She has a great blog, and is also a paramedic and is participating in Relay for Life.  She created a mandala to bring attention to this worthy cause.  Here's what I did:

Of course, I HAD to add color, and had fun using my gel pens and markers.  I can't resist bringing my mixed media self to the Zentangling world!  I know some of my tangles are unorthodox, and appreciate sharing them with this great community.

For anyone visiting me from the Diva's blog, please check out Paint Party Friday, where I am the featured artist this week.   I think it would be so great for some of the wonderful artists from the Zentangle world to link up to PPF and share what they are doing. I am also linking up to Creative Every Day and Artists in Blogland.  

Have a wonderful week.  If you are moved to comment, please know that hearing from you means the world to me!

  2. So beautiful, Jessica! I will have to get up the courage to use some colored pens and markers. I am always afraid I will make the colors too dark and mask the pen.

  8. Your Diva challenge zentangle is so amazing with the patterns and colors working together! I haven't zentangled much but I want to get into it more - these would make such great carved stamps.
