Busy Bee: A Pictorial

Things have been a tad bit crazier than usual around Chez Bee these days. Lots of work and spring cleaning and lots of crafty activity in our down time.  I won't bore you with the worky stuff. but there is the results of the creative things going down.

First off, I finished the  Diva's Challenge for this week. It was a UMT (Use My Tangle) Challenge to use Camelia by Anne Marks:


I finished a tangle for a friend who  loves cats. 

I took a class on Zentangle Borders



And one on Copic Markers


And when we were cleaning the basement, I found my pine needle basket stuff and started  finishing a couple that I had left undone. 

This week the fun continues, with another class, a trip out of town, a farm visit to the library,  a slumber party with a five year old friend and a breakfast brunch. Ooooeeee! Spring is starting off with a bang!!!!

Wow! You are a true artist! All your work is outstanding. This weeks challenge is so well done with wonderful dimension because of shading. I love the cat Zentangle, super, and then lots of learning fun!

Look at you go! So accomplished! I would LOVE to take a Zentangle border class. I think it would be a game changer as to being able to create and decorate anything! Nicely done!

All your work are beautiful but the first one is my favourite :)

Very creative in all your work. Like the rope effect of Betweed in the first and the shading adds a lot of dimension. Like the tangle you used to separate the sections in the cat ZIA. Great work. Hope it was also relaxing.
