Diva challenge 324 - Tangled hearts



When I saw that this week's diva challenge from guest blogger Jessica Davies was all about gratitude and appreciation, I was of course eager to use one of my new tiles that I had so much fun eco-dying and trying out this weekend.  Gratitude and appreciation come in layers and interwoven nets, and this tile is a clear example.  Graditude to Jessica and beyond her, to Diva Laura for the blog and the challenge.  Gratitude to Michele Wynn, who inspired me to try eco-dying and posted a "how-to" link, and beyond her to Margaret Bremner, who inspired Michele and wrote the blog that Michele linked to.  Beyond them all, gratitude to Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts and thousands of others who played a part in bringing zentangles into my life.  Interwoven with eco-dying and tangling, gratitude to all the people who for more than 60 years have encouraged and supported the creativity that so enriches my life.  And gratitude to the original Creative Spirit who is the source and originator of all creativity and love.  And. . .  .   Yes, I have much to appreciate and much to be grateful for, even in this one small exercise.  Thank you, one and all, and thanks to all who share all of this with me now.

    1. Thanks, Jess. I enjoyed it. This is my first year doing the diva challenges and I hadn't realized that Laura had guest bloggers during the summer. I suspect it's going to be a very rich experience.

  6. Still a small community we are all interconnected and each one inspires each one of us at one stage one way or the other. Well done on the tile and great idea to start with mooka.

    1. Thanks, Susie. Lately I've been enjoying drawing the mooka "heads" so that they "interact" - a tie-in I liked with community and gratitude.
