She has a beautiful blog where she not only shows her numerous drawings but all sort of interesting posts like art supplies reviews, crafts, poems, and many more...even a zentangle pattern organizer! I invite you to visit her website as well as her "about me" page and read her beautiful intention behind creating this blogs. To visit her blog press "here".

Now for this week's "I am the Diva Challenge #326" we had to create a Monotangle tile of N'zeppel and at the same time tap into the zentangle mindfulness and reflect about moments where just like a teenager we have felt that we do not fit in.
As I was thinking in life's ups and downs where sometimes we feel we have everything figured out and all is going up and smooth and then a change comes along and we feel like all is coming down forcing us to readjust and find a new balance, a new us. I guess that is life's cycle, just like waves in the ocean... that gave me the idea to start my tile with a wave string. This forced me to the uncomfortable unknown of drawing "N'Zeppel" in an spiral grid, for a moment I thought that was too difficult and almost changed my mind, but then I thought just like teenagers I must keep going on and face the fear one step at a time... I think it turn out quite all right ;-) To my surprise the wave created a half heart in the empty space so I decided to continue the heart filling the rest with colored N'Zeppel.
Just when think I have learned the way to live, life changes.
This tile done with brown and black Micron pens, white chalk, graphite and Burnt Ochre Prismacolor coloured pencil.
I hope you liked this tile and as always if you would like to use anything from this post in your own drawings please feel free to do so.
