I love it when Rick and Maria at Zentangle come up with new designs. It is like having a new toy to play with. Laura, our Diva has challenged us to use IX, the newest tangle in a tile. I thought that the color would add interest, but on review, IX shows itself, with lots of interest, without color. Live and learn. I'll go with it.

|First attempt at sketching outdoors|
|From an old photo|
I got a new Moleskin sketchbook this past summer and two months later the pages were still white. As I have said before, my orchids really cry out to me to paint, sketch or draw them but I resist. They are so perfect!
I finally broke the barrier and made this sketch of my dendrobium display.
Not many days later I found an old photo of a cabin we built in Glen Elk Canyon in Colorado.
It was there we heard the report of Neil Armstrong on the moon from a 1940's style radio. Anyway it holds alot of memories for me.
So, here they are and a happy PPF to all of you!

My dendrobium orchids have been amazing this year.
I want to paint them but just can't seem to do them justice.
Most of my attempts end up in the trash and this one almost did,
but I have been enjoying Joanne Sharpe's Letter Love class,
so decided to make this a Letter Love exercise.
Happy Paint Party Friday!!

Well I definitely slipped off into "zenland" while completing this Challenge tile. If it wasn't for beadz, it would be a monotangle, and pretty darned boring if you ask me. I will definitely take a run at this later in the week when my subconscious has had a chance to chew on the design a bit.
Congratulations to Laura and B-Rad on their eighth wedding anniversary. It is so wonderful to hear that with all of the challenges they face, their relationship remains sound and happy.
