|Rusted Root!! Aaaahh!!|

It's actually been inspirational, drawing these patterns in and looking at all the variations online (and I've only made it through A and half the B patterns--aaahh!! It's a slooooow process!!) I'm rediscovering favorites and finding new loves...I am totally hooked on Zentangle!

Okay, the Diva's Weekly Challenge #77 is using the pattern Fiore di Pietro and submitted tiles are then to be used in a memorial tribute (you can click on either of the links to read the whole story...it's pretty cool.) And, this is the tile I did yesterday:

And the previous Diva's Weekly Challeng #76, "Home", using a little of Pittsburgh and Massachusetts for inspiration, I created this:
