Accidental Ensemble

Tonight at the Vic we had a bit of an accident.... A TOTALLY ROCKIN' ACCIDENT! 
Tonight's focus was the many aspects of shading. We made our way through the lesson plan we marveled at the differences a bit of graphite makes. (Major thanks to my teacher Molly for the amazing lesson plan!) 
We started by doing the same tangle twice but shaded in two different ways using Betweed which is a favorite of mine. We even created the tangle using two different approaches. The first method allowed us to chat and tangle and the second brought a more focused vibe. 

Next we moved on to our ATC tiles using Poke Root, Fife and my new tangle Frogeyes! I have to say it's a bit addictive! I'll be publishing the breakout soon! 
At the end of class we put our tiles together and discovered a flow between the three that we just had to play with. As you can see below Poke Root breaks through the string and goes right to the edge of the tile. This allowed for the flow between the three tiles that you see in the ensemble photograph below. 

I think it kinda rocks!! Enjoy! 

Smiling in this moment.
Love and light.

The Rowdy Yogi Posse

Laughter and love filled my home last night as I introduced Zentangle to a posse' of yoga teachers. This was a special group of ladies comprised of six women that recently graduated from the YTT program at State of Grace yoga studio.  As I guided them through the tangles they caught up on each other's lives laughing and comforting as stories and updates were exchanged. 

This was a rowdy bunch of gals! It all started out quiet and full of Zen during our introductions and breathing exercises... Then there was the giggling, belly laughs and the snorting.... It was amazing. 

I still have that smile on my face that finds me each time I have the honor of teaching this practice in patterns. I feel like I made five new friends last night and hope we can gather again soon. 

To my dear friend Emily. Thank you so much for helping me share my passion and introducing me to your circle of friends. 

Love and light 
In this moment.
