Artist's Play Room #13

Scroll down for this
week's theme!
Last week's Artist's Play Room was such fun! I loved all the zentangles that were submitted last week. You people are so darn creative and it's fun discovering all your art as you link up. For those of you who landed here and are reading me for the first time, APR is held every Saturday and continues throughout the week until the nest Saturday when I do a wrap up of the previous week and then announce this week's theme.

Last week we tackled Zentangles, meditative doodling involving repetitive patterns to create beautiful images. I love doodling/zentangling, it really is very relaxing and I recommend it if you've never tried. There are many tangle sites that will teach you oodles of patterns to get you started. Ok, on to the ART because that's why we're all here.

Here we go!

My piece is called "Chopsticks". I thought they would lend
themselves well to tangling.
Za Faran has painted a
monochromatic and
thought provoking
piece in blue.
Twinkle toes did some
lovely colorful butterflies

Ritu has zentangled the hair
of a lovely lady.

Sandee has created a very bright
and colorful fish, love him!
Carol has done her name as a
tangle looks great!
Tracy has tried her first tangle, what
a great job, the DG stands for
Domestic Gourdess!
Simona did a combination of
tangles and books, sweet!

Cindy isn't sure this
counts as a tangle, YES
IT DOES and it's gorg.
Neesie has shown some
serious tangling chops.
She submitted 12 for me
to choose from, what a
chore, go check them out.
It;s so nice to see another friend of
mine stopping by to play. Great
zen Ellen, you rock!

Minn's tangled a dragon, I love him,
although he looks quite friendly and
I think he's out of fire which is
good if you want to be friends
with a dragon.
Vonny zetangled both the oranges
and the basket, so great Von.
I love how you capture fruit.
Tracey has done her first
tangle and I love the colors
Great job Trace even though
it frustrated you to no end.
Susan has done a zen ATC
with lovely red hearts, I
always love art with heart!

Darla is also one of my
over achievers this week.
Go on over and see the
other tangles she did!
Andrea has done a lovely string in
color, I think it looks terrific.
Terrie tangled then added one of
my fave colors a turquoise. Looks
 great terrie!
Lynn used her doodly birds
to make a very cute
tangle, it looks great!
Virginia has done a
colorful floral tangle,
so unique and lovely.
Arnold has done a beautiful
Celtic design for his tangle,
I love the bold coloration,
Gloria has done a beautiful
abstract piece with botanical
roses tangled in. Stunning.
I love those roses!
Twinkle toes tangled this bus, I love it, it's so cute!
Doesn't it remind you of the Partridge Family Bus?

This week I really wanted to get back to the basics so I decided to do the wide theme of sketching & drawing. Just get your pencils out and draw to your heart's content. I don't care what you draw or whether you embellish it with color, ephemera or use it in other art you're making, just draw, draw, draw!! I personally love drawing and I love it even more when I discovered recently that I'm pretty good at it, finally. This is gonna be a fun week for me! Here's some inspiration...
"Loving Pears",
a drawing I did last month
Danny Gregory bird sketchan adorable bird sketch.
Andrea's beautiful bench sketchMichael has drawn

Enjoy this week's theme and take it wherever it goes for you. I can't wait to see your art.

    BUt I shall enjoy all the artistic works the talented ones of you out there produce and wait to see what the next theme maybe ;)

  2. All the zentangles this week were fabulous and sooo very gorgeous! Hope to draw something for the challenge if i can! Have a beautiful week!

  3. OH MY that's some inspiration Jenn, I've got a busy week but will try to submit something of the right calibre :$
    Wish me luck!

  4. i am SO not a drawer. i don't have a clue where to start - i don't think any of your readers are going to appreciate my stick people :) BUT i am definitely going to give this a go and try, at least. i found your blog, and this challenge - through your zentangle posts from last week!

  5. Since I injured my hand I had to go back into an old sketch book to find and entry - I still wanted to play in the Art Room. You have great challenges.


  6. ok, jenn, you visited my blog a couple days ago, left me a wonderful comment, and invited me to check out the Artist's Playroom. which i did. and i can not believe i actually drew/sketched something and have posted it. i've never done anything like this before - i can not draw - but this was fun! i know it will look supremely amateurish next to the other posts - but i am fine with that. i'm very happy with my first effort - so thanks for inviting me :)

  7. Oops Jenn, sorry but I didn't get to the challenge this week...but I'll visit everyone's work because they look amazing.
    I'll try to post some art next week promise! Please forgive me.
    Have a wonderful weekend ;D

  8. I almost did not make it this week, but here I am after all with some scratchings...I don't think that is a word... but that's what I'm going to call it anyway:-) Those inspiration-links you posted are incredible, Jenn!

  9. Jenn,
    I hope you like my "chicken scratch".
    Chickens and Roosters was the challenge at IA this week, but it was your challenge that actually inspired me to try and draw one!
    It's a simple drawing, but it was fun and I enjoyed it!!

    Have a great week!

  10. This week I've linked my dad's blog. He makes amazing sketches and I thought they would be really good for this week's theme! Have a great weekend!!

  11. I always love your challenges, and I've finally managed to submit something, woo hoo!


Please leave me a comment, I've sure missed hearing from you!
