Diva Challenge is Eaxy

Calendar A Day

So my 2015 Tangle A Day did not get finished last winter.
Now I am filling it in using THIS year's date and days! 

The Diva's challenge this week is Eaxy Tangle.  I really really do not like this tangle!!!  Once it is completed it is sort of cool looking but there is certainly nothing contemplative about making this one!  STRUGGLE.  Funny how some tangles just DO not resonate with me.  

Merryweather is painted with Twinkling H20 watercolors so in real life they sparkle like crazy.  A scan just doesn't show that of course.  

I DID like this new tangle pattern "Sea Wave".  Perfect to me to help me "balance" my sadness and fear and lost feeling in reaction to the election results.  We ride now on rough and uncharted seas.
I thought Hillary's concession speech was amazing.  I cried through the whole thing.  What a class act.  Grace under pressure.


  1. I love the fact that you are not wasting your calendar - and that your tangling is so good too. Unlike you, I rather enjoyed Eaxy. It was one of those light bulb moments, when I suddenly went, Oh, that's how it works, and it did. I still need to practise, but I will because I like it. I think yours looks very modern art and stylish. As for the uncharted waters, I just hope things don't turn out as badly as we all fear they may. It is not only America at risk, I'm afraid. Remember that last little thing at the bottom of Pandora's Box - Hope.

  2. I like your eaxy, with the color in the boxes. The sea wave is really pretty too.

  3. Love how you've finished Eaxy! I've decided to try my hand at a zentangle calendar in 2017. :)

  4. Indeed no 'zen' experience this week; your Eaxy is pleasant to look at however. Even here, far away in the Netherlands, we fear what will happen now. And I myself keep wondering what is happening to our world, our way of thinking to make a thing like this possible.
