Zentangle a day- catch up!

It was our 18th Wedding Anniversary yesterday and we managed to have a last minute break . It was great to just relax for a few days and do absolutely nothing, well apart from eat, drink and walk the dog!

I opened the curtains to this view on Saturday morning and it was inviting me out there to sip my morning tea and "doodle" in the sunshine as I listened to the breeze in the trees, the birds singing and the sounds of the water in the pond.....what a difference to hearing the children constantly squabbling!

I hadn't worked from my "One Zentangle a Day" book for a few days so I decided it was the perfect opportunity to pay catch up as I sat in the sunshine.

(Spot the error!)

I worked through Day 4 and 5 but felt I struggled with the shading.

I continued onto Day 6 with 3 more new patterns then sort of flowed into Day 7 where I tried combining a few different variations, It was great fun but I look at what I feel are true Zentangle creations and feel I have such a long way to go.

BUT, isn't there a saying about Life is a journey and not a destination? 
I will keep telling myself that anyway.

Bye for now.

Happy Anniversary :) That garden looks a lovely place to chill and your doodling is fantastic - I don't know why you think it isn't!

I think you are doing very well with the tangles you are drawing. There is a FaceBook group that focuses solely on shading. Perhaps you might like to go there. The woman who started it, Eni Oken, has some shading ebooks if you wanted to learn as well. The FaceBook page is But you could also google her name to get to her website where she gives tips on shading as well.
