On the Second Day of 3Zs . . .




On the second day of 3Zs
Bijou drew for me
A fetching diva dancing . . .


. . . and a tile full of tripoli.


-----+-----

We are SO enjoying reading everyone's comments and the posts on the Zentangle Mosaic app are exquisite!

Today's hashtag for posting to the app is: #2nddayof3zs

To see all the guidelines for these 12 days, go here.

Remember, we will give out a prize for one randomly chosen poster of each day's tiles on the app and also for one randomly chosen commenter on each day's blog post.

Oh yes . . . here's the stepout for diva dance:




For more fun insights into diva dance, check out this newsletter!

Molly and Rick each tangled one of today's 3Z tiles. Neither saw what the other was doing, but each did something similar. Fun synchronicities like this happen a lot around here.

See you tomorrow!

Love those synchronicities. :) Such things happen around here too, and, when they do, my husband always claims that great minds think alike. :)

Love the strength in each of these tiles as well as the depths achieved. Both tripoli and diva dance come harder to me but look forward to giving it (or them) a whirl tonight!

Jennifer Sparrow said...

Yes, Rick's tile just made me laugh! It is sooooo cool! Thanks for the challenge. It's keeping me out of holiday trouble ;)

Gorgeous work! I can't wait for the final day, when we get to see so many fantastic tiles all at once.

Daniel Lamothe said...

Beautiful! I haven't yet tried using white charcoal over black ink - it's a wonderful effect. Must get to checking Mosaic more often!

Sarah Hluchy said...

My brain's wheels are turning, figuring out how I'll put Tripoli and diva dance together on paper. Been looking forward to today's blog post so I could continue with the challenge. At the end, I'm going to send all 12 tangled pieces to my aunt who introduced me to Zentangle for her birthday on new year's eve :)

Edwin Ortiz said...

One of my favorites. Can't wait to join the DivaDance

Terri Young said...

This is way too cool! I'm loving all the 3zs everyone is creating! So far I'm keeping up.

Pat Floerke said...

I hope at the end of the 12 days we'll get to see a mosaic of all your 78 tiles together -- this is already fascinating. I just cut out some 3Z-size tiles and was pleasantly surprised that they're not nearly as big as I'd imagined they would be. Now to start playing!

jess c. said...

Today I got somece inspiration from the app on what to do with Tripoli. I enjoyed it more today then yesterday

Danita Noland said...

I'll have to put my holiday music on to inspire my dance! 😊

Esther Piszczek, CZT said...

Beautiful tiles, as always! Are you choosing the tangles each day or have they been pre-determined? I'm looking forward to tangling these two versatile patterns - together - and to tomorrow's tiles!

Taz42 said...

Time to pull out some tiles and get busy. Such fun to anticipate what is coming next.
