It's a string thing #85

I'm a bit late with this but I really wanted to finish. I love how it turned out.  This was so relaxing to do.
Here are the details.

The Meadow

This weekend I went to a women's retreat up in the mountains with my Omens Ministry through church. I learned about myself, I learned about got, learned more about Grace, forgiveness, love, and Jesus. I met new friends, caught up with older ones and built new relationships. Sometimes we do not see why things happen until later. I heard a testimony from my Sunday school partner ( we teach 5 year olds) and she was part of the reason I was going but I didn't realize that my going had such an impact on her. *tears* God is so good. I also received the Holy Spirit ( again) I say again because I was given the same words I was given as a child. I get the MOST AMAZING feeling when I say them.  I am in a season of learning to love myself.  No I don't totally but learning more about Jesus and God and the Holy Spirit and how much they love me.  I should. I need to.  I also saw things that give me hope, a new man.  Not soon, but eventually. And the beautiful voices lifeted in worship. So beautiful. That's Amazing Grace.  So during this retreat we had free time. I took my pens and my sketch book and walked and prayed and walked. I found a little place off the road. Sat down and stilled myself. Spoke to God (yes out loud. ) I looked around me and found some beautiful oak leaves and a little plant ( not sure of the name) and I finished it tonight. So two of the tangles are organic ( one based on the plant I saw and the other is the OKE tangle) the third non organic tangle is Balo.

Bright Owl and That's new to me!

So I have done a Zendala dare today. I just love these. I also stumbled upon that's new to me.  I always look for ideas on how to design the tangled and tiles and Zendalas. So this was a great way to do this.
Here is the website for the new to me challenge.

Diva Challenge #208

Whew finally.... I think I made this one a little more intense than I needed it to be.  But it comes out how it comes out. I like it. A lot of shading work. Plus I didn't draw as much these last two weeks as I normally do.

It's been a little while since I've posted. Life has just been busy and I've been sick. It's been pretty sucky. I did finish a tile earlier today. My first mono tangle tile. It turned out pretty good. Anyhow I'll post it later. I'm going to jump back in this week. Have a great one!!
