This was such a fun get together, including another local CZT, Tanya, who went to the 20th seminar. She found the Intermountain Tanglers online and joined us for the first time when we last met, July 12.
Starting front/left, going counterclockwise: Lisa, Ivory, Dave, Leslie, her sister Judy, Tanya, and Heidi Sue. (Didn't I say that Dave WOULD be in this group pic? A JoAnn's worker took the pic for us.)
|You sassy girls!|

|This is Tanya!|
|Leslie brought alcohol inks and glossy cardstock to play with|
Leslie's ink card was so warm! She started tangling on it right away. We want to see if the pigma perma pens work better on the glossy finish, because we found the regular pigma microns smeared. The glossy paper just doesn't hold onto the pigma ink well.

|Ivory kept at it, making one piece after another in pencil|
|A bold piece with strong patterns and an eye popping palette.|
We shared a lot of our pieces together. This colorful spiral mandala is Judy's creation.
Not quite finished, but a good start, to be sure.

Leslie worked on this zendala and brought it. The precision in her lines is impeccable! Very impressive work. Her inspiration for this piece was PeterDraws on youtube. He has many videos depicting his process, methods, thinking, and his amazing style of art. Similar to zentangle, but definitely with his own flair.
Good stuff, Leslie!
|A little bit like a landscape?|
Dave has been very busy with organizing and tidying up his home, along with a pretty big project involving the sidewalk and a local scout who is fixing up that sidewalk for his Eagle Project. so Dave hasn't produced as much art as is his usual habit. Next time, there'll be something from him. At least, we sure do hope so!
