One Zentangle a Day – Week 7 (Part 1)

April 18, 2019 Lisa 0

Well, I have some nail art to post, but the collage hasn’t been released yet so I guess you’ll have to settle for some ZIAs. I’ve finished a little over half of the extra exercises from Beckah Krahula’s One Zentangle a Day that I committed to after Week 6 and Read More

This post has been a stinker. I accidentally published it early and had to re-set its publish date to the end of March. But it still wasn’t ready when it posted again! Lesson learned. Next time just delete the old post and start a new one. :p Today we’re covering Read More

One Zentangle a Day – Week 6

March 27, 2019 Lisa 0

I thought I’d be talking about art supplies today, but the post was approaching 1.5K words and I hadn’t even started writing about the last week of drawings. And is it my last week? Because Krahula’s extra exercises leave plenty of room for more art-ing. I put together a list Read More

Hello, again! I’d semi-planned to go through a list of all the tools I’ve been using for this week’s post, but I realized with one week left to go, that list could still change. So that along with my final thoughts will be in Week 6. Today we’ll talk a Read More

One Zentangle a Day – Week 4

March 10, 2019 Lisa 0

We’re at Week 4 of Beckah Krahula’s “One Zentangle a Day” and I haven’t fallen behind yet. But with several hobbies going at once, I’m not able to do many of the extra exercises in the book and that means no rainbows. The new colorful pens I mentioned last time? Read More

One Zentangle a Day – Week 3

I’m still slowly working my way through Beckah Krahula’s “One Zentangle a Day”, occasionally drawing the extra exercises when I have time. I’ve been through enough art courses that I don’t feel bad about skipping things, but I may revisit some of them when I’ve completed the full six weeks. Read More

One Zentangle a Day – Weeks 1 & 2

February 24, 2019 Lisa 0

As I mentioned at the start of the month, when I picked up Beckah Krahula’s “One Zentangle a Day” I really just wanted to copy the patterns out into my sketchbook after going through a Zendoodle book and doing the same. I’d gone through the bulk of the book as Read More

It’s been a while since I last posted about the bead animals from the old art gallery that used to live at this domain. Today I’m covering the cute little mammals and, of course, I’m featuring the pig since we are now in the Year of the Pig. That snout Read More

Hello Again & Origami Zodiac

February 3, 2019 Lisa 0

Wow… So I hadn’t quite meant to take such a giant step back from social media, the blog, and nail art. I rearranged my workroom and found I could fit in my grandfather’s old unfolding table that is so perfect for crafts and cutting out patterns and, well, I got Read More

Ocean/Water Beaded Animals

So…a week or so ago I finally realized what the strange traffic patterns that Google Analytics kept showing me meant: people trying to reach my old art gallery were getting redirected sideways into this post. These poor visitors from Pinterest wanted to see bead animals, not nail art. And my Read More
