A new direction

A friend introduced me to Zentangle and I went a little crazy with it!

I bought a set of Inktense pencils and just had to play!

 Learning to journal through art naturally includes reflection on spiritual things. 
 I found an old, "failed" watercolour I had painted and tangled over the top of it. 
 I really like the result!

Inspired by a tangle blog I saw where the focus was strong black and white and making everything look shiny, I decided to mount a watercolour.  My family commented that they thought it looked like an Indigenous inspired turtle.  I enjoy the ambiguity of it.


  1. Very different Shell. You are a lady of many talents.

  2. Wow Shelley, have you been a busy girl!! I think you have definitely got the Tangle bug, and are seriouly addicted. Your art will take on another direction and be more awesome than ever. I love your tangled watercolours!
