This must be a personal record for me, completing my challenge by noon on Monday!
I decided to give the tangle Maryhill a try and wow what fun results it gives. When I started drawing the lines I felt awkward and thought this doesn't flow at all! But then as I relaxed into it, it started to come together. It's also more forgiving that you would think.
I enjoyed shading it and could sit and play with it for hours.
(it's an opportunity to practice our shading too!)
They are all very cool, now to pick one!

Very frustrating to a person who likes to be organized, but thankfully I discovered them this morning buried in a basket full of supplies for a summer diy project which I hope to show here soon.
Because I traced sewing scissors I thought I would go with a "quilt-like" theme for my design. I know that using a ruler when zentangling is a no-no but it's a must when quilting so I decided to use one. The shading for some reason hasn't shown up very well on the squares with the dots, but they're shaded grey.
I copied the drawing before I filled in the black so that I can fill it in now with colour. It's like 2 for 1 tangling! You can tell me which one you like better when I'm done.
I've been having a lot of fun doing Kelly's new challenges. This week we had to 'build a house' with a printable template that she makes up.
My kids say it looks like a Hobbit house. I figured that I would be going overboard if I added flying fairies and gnomes peeking out of the garden... but I was tempted!
Her challenges seem to spark my "whimsical" side more than my "tangling" side. I wanted to try a few drawing techniques that I saw in this doodle by Ann, but it also contains a few "modified" tangles: Bricks and Frond and of course W2 for the roof (which I now see that I drew upside-down by mistake!)
