Weekly Challenge #200: "Bi-Zen-Tennial Celebration!" for Laura AND for me!

Challenge #200 for the Diva - now that is real dedication.  I may not participate every week, but I sure have done my share :) 

Let's see, my first challenge that I posted an entry was back in 2012 - It was Challenge #70 Colour me Sepia  

I was hesitant at first and 'watched' for about 3 weeks, then I decided that the following week was going to be my first dip in.  Well, low and behold, the challenge was to use the colour Sepia!, now what do I do, I had no Sepia pens - but.... I found some paints that I had bought for my granddaughter for when she would visit me - they were in little bottles with a spongy top - much like a bingo marker, so I used the brown one.

I started tangling the day after Christmas in 2011.  I already had a Flickr account and I did a search on 'Zentangles' and found heaps of beautiful artworks -  through Flickr I came across some entries for the Weekly Challenge with the Diva (Laura Harms).  

Hasn't she done an amazing job - keeping up with her blog and setting up all these wonderful challenges for us! Thanks Laura - your a gem!  Happy 200th Challenge - and here's to 2,000 more!! hip! hip! hooray!

This is 'Smiley' my first entry that I had posted with the Diva Challenges.

I don't think I posted the following works - here I used some brown ink - some leftover I found from my Calligraphy days - I just used a paddle pop stick and a brush to spread the ink.

And to highlight Challenge #200 I did this bright piece.  Tangles used are my 'Poppie-Love' and 'Loop-de-loop'

.......... and you know an interesting thing happened... I posted this on Instagram and I realised that I reached 200 followers!  what a coincidence!  So this ZIA is for Laura and for me :)

Have a lovely week everyone!  and a big thank you for your visit and for your beautiful comments - much appreciated.
