Margaret's Third Entry...Jella's Moly...A Repost...:)

...Jella's sign in pages...
...Jella's pages 1 and 2...
...Jella's pages 3 and 4...
...Lisa's pages 5, 6 and 7... page 8
intertwined and spiralling in connection
with a few of Lisa's green swirls...
...Lisa's page 7 and my pages 8 and 9...
look closely and you can see the edges of each page... pages 9, 10 and 11...
a happily nesting peacock in full zentangled glory...
...and finally my page 11 and my page 12...
where Cindy Michele
will connect with her sequence of designs.
Lastly, how about a peek at some
real life photos taken
just before Jella's book was shipped December 29th.
Jella's sign in pages (above)
followed by...
...Jella's four design pages linking to Lisa's...
...Lisa's design pages linking to mine...
...and my design pages
ready to be linked in the next round...:)
Here is a view of the entire book thus far...
it is simply delightful.
I am happy to say that
it is now officially all signed and sealed
and delivered...
(with a USPS confirmed delivery December 31, 2010)
to Cindy in Tennessee.

Tentacles and Butterflies

This was fun because I was able to blend my entry with both Jella's and molossus' entries by folding the moly and meeting each of our designs at the seems. This was fun because when viewing my entry with Jella's, my and molossus' entries seem to leave off, go behind and come out the other end of Jella's. But when moly is folded back and molossus' and my entries are placed side by side, they flow together as well. So this was like working in two moly's at the same time...really fun compositional problem-solving!

Lisa Rene's entry in Jella's Moly

My entry in Jella's moly pages 5 - 8 a.k.a. "Rumi, Unchain My Heart". Inspired by the quotes that Jella incorporated into her zentangle, I incorporated a quote by Rumi that is dear to me:

"Your task is not to seek for love, but to seek and find all of the barriers within yourself that you have built against it." Thank you Rumi.

Next Entry Please!

Hey there! Let's all post our next entries please...meaning the second zentangle drawing but in our first rotation. I am so excited that this blog is getting updated little by little...YAY!

My sign-in page

My First Entry

This was the first entry in my moly for the Zentangle Moly Exchange Group which began at the end of last Summer/beginning of Fall. There have been so much beautiful work created by this group. Like Margaret, I am also very eager to have my dear little moly arrive soon into my grateful hands. Stay tuned for more uploads!

Link to tangle pattern Sowa

Jeanine Schoonaert has posted steps to her tangle pattern SOWA .

Add Together... Japanese Fold Moleskine Sketchbook...
five artistically zen inspired souls...
a boat load of commitment and imagination...
and you have the official 2010-2011
Zentangle Moly_X sketchbook exchange!
My reveal is finally here...
both in scanned format and in digital photographs.
my little book has flown from the nest last September
and is now winging her way across
thousands of miles
into the studios and creative minds of
our group by one.
I miss her so very much...
we had become such an extension of each other
for the past
several intensive weeks.
Can't wait til she returns back home again!
Enjoy the reveal.
It's been a long time coming! :)

My official sign in page...

Pages One and Two...connecting to...
...Pages Three and Four...(and a teency bit more)

When she returns
her 30 double sided zig-zagged pages
will be inked with life and joy
continuously beautiful patterns
born from the dancing pens in our Muses' hands.
Our group progress
will be officially blogged on Flickr
in the Moly_X_11 group
once all the blog details have finalized.
Each of us will also be posting our personal progress
Here is a list of our group members
along with a link to
either their art galleries or blogs.
Lisa in Arizona...
Sandra in Oregon...
Cindy in Tennessee...
Jella in Belgium...
me, here in Arizona.
I am just breathless with excitement.
I hope you enjoy our little artistic journey...
as much as we have enjoyed
planning it...:)

“Let your mind
start a journey through a strange new world.
Leave all thoughts of the world
you knew before.
Let your soul take you where you long
to be.
Close your eyes
let your spirit start to soar,
you'll live as you've never lived before.”
~Erich Fromm
