Zentangle Obsession...

I treated myself to a little Amazon therapy recently and got this book: Totally Tangled by Sandy Steen Batholomew. I think it came up in a recommendation and I looked over the customer reviews to decide which one to get - there are a few versions: Zentangle Basics & Zentagle 2. I went with the most recently released. I finally got a chance to try it out on my trip to hang out with the art teachers on the river. Since then I have been tangling each night in bed while watching TV - and I finished this one during baseball practice:

This one is my sketchbook:

While I worked on painting my master bath - with paint we bought about 5 years ago (it was time) I had to go to Lowe's to get rollers and the beautiful sample wall drew me in. I took as many as I could to still look like I was actually picking colors and not stealing paint chips!

Here are some bath progress pics:

it is a lavender - looks good with the sage in our bedroom. Very Ohmmm. Not quite ready for the full reveal yet - and the window above is screaming for some stained glass ~ working on design ideas.
Back to the zentangles: I had fun with paint chips last night. I love the fun names and I am really intrigued by the samples with the squares cut out - not sure yet how I want to use them.

Oh the possibilities!
