DC #307 ~ ZINGO!

On her blog this week, the Diva (Laura Harms) challenged us to use a tangle introduced by Maria's (Maria Thomas ~ co-founder of Zentangle) granddaughters Indy and Mazzy. These two young girls were very professional in their instructional video and you can find the link of the Diva's page (here).

As I watched these two young ladies, I was reminded of a few weeks ago when a couple of my own granddaughters came over and we had a good time talking and coloring. They spotted a few of my tiles and decided they wanted to learn to draw like "Gramma Leslie". So when we can get all of the schedules to sync, I am planning on showing them Indy and Mazzy's video. Here's a picture of Gramma and her two sweethearts (they look great ... gramma not so much).

Gramma talking again ... as usual!
I had a lot of fun with ZINGO this week, and have several attempts in my sketchbooks, but since I am running late, I will just show my final for the submission this week. I was debating whether or not to darken the color and decided I just wanted to leave it pastel, so here it is.

Media: 3.5 x 3.5 tile
Tools: Micron 01 Black pen, Graphite pencil, Prismacolor
Pencils, Grey fineliner
Tangles: Zingo, Zinger, Flux, Fescu
Thank you for stopping by and if you want to see all the other submission for this week's challenge, head on over to I am the Diva and check them out. It's a lot of fun and we'd love to have you join in the fun.

Have a wonderful week!


  1. A grandmother between her two granddaughters, lovely picture. I have no grandchildren but I think it is wonderful to draw together and of course to share other things...
    I like your entry of this week very much, very nice in this pastel.

    1. Thank you Ria, for your kind words. I can't wait to get them started on tangling since they both seem to have an artistic bent.
