Zentangle Enhancer Session

Hello People,

I know its been a very long time since there was any posts in the last couple of months, but now we are back.

I had a chance to attend the Zentangle Enhancer course with Malathi Ma'am at NUMA Bangalore and here are some memories from that session.

Personalised Gift - ZIA Frame

Hi Friends,

Its been 2 months that we have posted anything & I am so happy that we are making a comeback with this one as this is a very special one. My brother & sister-in-law celebrated their 15th anniversary on 17th April. So I decided to make a personalised ZIA with their names on it. I started with tracing their names "Shrikant" & "Mini" on paper using a stencil. After tracing their names, I decided to colour them using "Sakura Watercolour Pens". It was my first time using these pens and it was such a delight to use them.

Once their names were coloured, to make it complete, I added names of my two adorable nieces "Aarana" aged 5 years and "Aadya" aged 2.5 years above and below their names. Also, when making this ZIA, I had decided that I would divide my entire drawing space in a grid pattern and tangle within the grid so that the tangles look like they have been stacked above each other.  And it was such a cool incident that recently this week a new facebook group titled "Zentangle: Stacked and Tangled" & I felt so happy that my thoughts were in line with the new trend of stacking :) 

Almost when I was about to finish the project, I decided to insert a "Happy Anniversary" wish for them in the ZIA :)

Though after making I realised I should have used lighter, string style tangles in some sections specially, eg, I shouldn't have used Knightsbridge & Nipa around the alphabets, I am still very happy with the end product.

My brother, sister-in-law and the little angels loved the gift and this framed ZIA now adorns the wall of their room.

Hope you all like our work.

Happy Valentine's Day - Valentangle

Hi friends,

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone. :) :)

With all our love, both of us (Roshni & Neha) have made several Tanglicious Gifts for our respective husbands. These are also our entry to I am The Diva Challenge #204 .

Lets start with some beating heart by Roshni :)

Even though thats how heart looks like, Roshni thought she better tangle some beautiful hearts too :) :) 

We women are very romantic and love to boldly express our love for our better half. So we had developed some beautiful "Templates for Love & I Love You". So here are Neha's version of Tangled Love & I Love You.

If you like our templates, you can find the links to download them here.

Neha has also done 2 more tangles for her husband, one with their names and another one with their initials.

We hope you like our work as much as our husband's loved them :) 

A special note: We are posting almost after week but that doesnt mean we have gone off our mission 365, its just that its got difficult to post every day. So we have decided to post once or twice every week.

World Cancer Day 2015

Hi Friends, 

4th February is Celebrated as World Cancer Day. The theme for 2015 is "Not Beyond Us" i.e. World Cancer Day 2015 will take a positive and proactive approach to the fight against cancer, highlighting that solutions do exist across the continuum of cancer, and that they are within our reach. 

The 2015 World Cancer Day Emphasis on: 

-- Choosing healthy lives
-- Delivering early detection
-- Achieving treatment for all
-- Maximising quality of life

This is our small effort to promote the awareness about Cancer. All colours that are used in this ZIA are colours of ribbons for various types of cancer. 

  • Yellow Ribbon – Bone Cancer
  • Blue & Pink Ribbon  – Male Breast Cancer
  • Pink Ribbon – Breast Cancer
  • Dark Blue Ribbon – Colon Cancer
  • Orange Ribbon  – Kidney Cancer Association
  • Light Blue Ribbon – Prostate Cancer 
  • Jade Ribbon – Liver Cancer
  • Lime Green Ribbon – Non – Hodgkins Lymphoma
  • Purple Ribbon – Gynecologic (Cervical) Cancer
  • Black  Ribbon – Melanoma
  • Dark Green Ribbon – Kidney Cancer or Renal Cell Carcinoma
  • Burgundy Red Ribbon - Oral Cancer 

We have also clubbed the "Thats New To Me Challenge Week#5" within this tangle of World Cancer Day. This week's challenge was to use the word "M". The new tangles from "M" include: MaelstormMoon RocksMorning GloriesMsst. We also used MeerMooka which we already knew from before. Some other tangles have also been incorporated in this design. 

As you all know, we are two of us at Tanglicious Connections, so we plan to do one more entry for "Thats New To Me Challenge". Normally, we would have done it under one roof, however, this had to go on today as its "World Cancer Day" today. 

Please do share this ZIA to spread awareness.
