Diva and doodles, and links to all sorts of places...

Here's face 17 for 29 faces ....Izzy Plum
She's an attorney and she's the DIVA of the court room. She carries a pistol on weekends and she has a huge belly laugh that has gotten her into trouble more than a few times. She is not afraid of the dark but she is afraid of squirrels.

I'm submitting this to InspirationAvenue as their theme is Divas this week.

And here's a few doodles in my Book of Days where i've been trying to write things that make me happy, small pleasures, things I'm thankful for ... if I end up writing something negative I cover over it,.... some things I was thankful for this week...

chocolate covered strawberries
red lobster crab legs
a quiet evening
sweet walter red
not having to testify
and zentangles...







This last one was for a challenge to add the four diamonds logo to your zentangle over at this site. Go and read her story about this fundraiser...
I zentangled till I ran out of pens,

And I did some blind contour drawings from Carla sonheim's book, Cameron at paint myself pretty is working through the book and inviting us all to join so here's my blind contour drawings. This is hard not to look at your page or your hand, and only at your subject.... but fun anyway...



 then here is the mandala I made last week, I didn't finish one this week...




and BE HAPPY!

  6. Wow, what an array of art! I love your diva - that tattoo over her eye is awesome!!

    Your zentangles are amazing - I keep reading about these and they always look so intricate. Your journal pages are so detailed as well - I love the page especially with the circles full of script and the beautiful flowers around them.
