As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
Joshua 24:15 

This week's Diva challenge really was a challenge for me at first. She asked us to take our home and interpret it in Zentangle form. Since I was homeschooled for so long, you'd think home would be an easy concept for me to illustrate. But perhaps, since I have been in the home for so long and seen the many facets home life has to offer (darn, I should have used the tangle Facets!), I couldn't pick which facet to tangle. I decided to go with the most important part, the basis for our home - God.
Lots of Paradox crept in here, kind of taking over the tile! I love doing those smooshy triangle shapes with Paradox and a little Hollibaugh. The shading really looks better in person - really. The scanner just can't do the pencil justice!

  3. Love the cross at the center of your Zentangle. And it's perfect since our home isn't really here anyway, is it? Wonderful job:)

    1. Amen! Thank you for that reminder. This is our temporary apartment while we wait for our time to go to our permanent residence. I can't wait!

    1. I appreciate that! I love how that balance comes along so naturally most times - just a part of the process.

  8. Love this, Zach! I agree about this being only our temporary home. Keep the cross in the middle of your home-away-from-home! :D
    I love the way you used the paradox tangle. Gotta practice that one!

    1. Thank you for the encouragement!

      Paradox is one of my favorites recently - definitely one to experiment with.
