Zentangles 18 & 19

I do believe I am now caught up!  It's been fun, that's for sure!
Ok, this is for Diane &  Carolien's Weekly Zentangle Challenge http://www.dianeclancy.com/blog/2015/08/weekly-challenge-18-tangle-with-b-e-z/
First we have Challenge #18, which are for tangles that start with B - E - Z.
Some of the tangles I used were Blooming Butter, Buggy Beads, Buddy, Efilys, Zenplosion & Zebra.  It takes me longer to decide which tangles I'm going to use than to actually do the artwork.  I am finding that one of the tricks is to take it slow, one stroke at a time.  
I really got into the Blooming Butter, which are all those flowers.  


Now Zentangle #19 is for tangles starting with N - V & B and I used Nexus (the 3 crazy stars, Bales (the Boarder), and Vermal.  I Kept it simple. 

 I hope you enjoyed seeing these Challenges, and remember, to see more entries go to Diane Clancy's Blog and check it out.  Here's a link to the beginning of the challenge where you can find very useful information there. http://www.dianeclancy.com/blog/diane-caroliens-weekly-zentangle-challenge/

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs,
Brenda

What am I going to do with it?  Well, I have no idea, but it's fun, relaxing and improves creativity.
