Tangled Tuesday No. 98

So I thought I’d learned my lesson about getting busy and skipping my weekly Tangled Tuesday post, but apparently not. It’s been quite some time since my last batch of tangling goodness, so I have a whole pile of new stuff to share with you all. Hope you enjoy the deluge!

Laurel Regan, CZT

The past few months have been incredibly rewarding as I’ve begun to build my CZT practice, and though the starting stages are rather slow going I am consistently gaining knowledge and insights, as well as experiencing little delights and joys along the way.

Since my previous Tangled Tuesday post I have had the privilege of teaching two Introduction to Zentangle classes, the first of which was one-on-one and the second to a group of ten staff members at the University of Windsor – two totally different experiences, but both of them incredibly fun and rewarding!

Here are the lovely mosaics from both classes:

“Introduction to Zentangle” class tiles

Going forward I have a number of classes scheduled through November and December, all of which are open for registration. If you’re in the Windsor-Essex (Ontario) region, I’d sure love to see you there!

P.S. – My new Moleskine planner has arrived, and I’ve been busily plotting out my class schedule for 2017 (with Felix’s help, of course!). If you’re interested in staying up-to-date on what’s to come, I invite you to sign up for the Laurel Regan, CZT mailing list.

Ready to schedule some Zentangle classes and events for 2017!

Tangled Goodies

One of the pieces I finished since my previous Tangled Tuesday post was a holiday-inspired design which I turned into greeting cards and then made them available for sale.

I bought some for myself (these are the ones available to Canadians from Vistaprint via Square), and I am thrilled with how they turned out!

If you’re interested in purchasing some for yourself, they are available through several different outlets – all of the details are in this post.

New Tangles

Since my previous Tangled Tuesday post I have learned the following new-to-me tangles.

Work in Progress

I am so excited to say that my colouring book-to-be is, well, pretty much done! It’s currently awaiting review prior to publication, so it’s out of my hands for now, but I am hoping that it will be available for sale within the next few days. Watch this space!

I have several large ZIAs in process, each at various stages of completion. The one I’ve been working on most recently is a zendala on a sheet of Strathmore Toned Gray sketch paper (trimmed down to 9″ x 9″) using black ink, grey shading, and white highlighting. I haven’t taken a photo since adding some shading/highlighting, as that stage hasn’t progressed too far yet, but here’s a pic from when the inkwork was finished.

    You’ve certainly been busy and your class work is tremendous. You should be very proud. I can’t begin to think about favourites among your work here, although that white on black Diva tile is pretty spectacular

  • Lois Holthaus November 8, 2016

    I enjoy your blog. I’m the one you sat by at Zentangle 25 seminar. I live in Breese, Il. I cherish the tile you gave me at seminar.

  • ElaineLK November 8, 2016

    Wow, you have been busy! Such beautiful work here by you and your students. I especially love the use of Tagh in your and your students’ work. Look like a peacock’s tail. And congratulations on finishing your coloring book! Can’t wait to see how it turns out. Your Christmas card design is gorgeous, too! You are progressing so well.

  • ria matheussen November 8, 2016

    First of all congrats on finishing your coloring book and for giving these workshops with nice results.
    I like the Christmas card very much and also this high focus pattern Eaxy looks very nice on a black tile.
    Thank you too for mention the different tangles, there alre always a few that I don’t know and I can add them on my personal legend.

  • Ilse November 8, 2016

    You’re showing us a lot of beautiful work!

    Your Eaxy on black is beautiful. Also a lot of beautiful work you show us here.

  • Kala November 12, 2016

    Congratulations on your coloring book! I love your tangles! You are only the second tangle artist I’ve come across. I’m a big fan of Norma J. Burnell’s Fairy Tangles. I found you through the Ultimate Blog Challenge community on Google+. I run “The Fairy Community” on Google+, and The Fairy Blog on Blogspot.

    I am so impressed by the way you are running with CZTdom. As you might remember, you are the person through whom I first discovered Zentangle—-and the rest is history. It got me through the never-ending US election campaign season, but I’m afraid nothing is helping me to deal with the result yet.
