Sinds zaterdag ben ik terug thuis, na het bijwonen van het 22 ste CZT seminarie in Providence. Het was een geweldige ervaring die ik iedereen kan aanbevelen en die ik nooit zal vergeten.

Toen ik gisteren de Challenge zag, wist ik dat ik nog een tekening had zitten in mijn kaft van vroeger die voldoet aan de vraag van de Diva.


Since Saturday I’m back home, after attending the 22nd CZT seminar in Providence. It was a great experience that I can recommend to anyone and that I will never forget.

Yesterday when I saw the Challenge, I knew I still had an earlier drawing in my map that meets the demand of the Diva.

I’ve met wonderful people, learned a lot and when the seminar began, there was such an incredible magic atmospere, I enjoyed every minute. I really hope you can do that one day too. We are retired but we stay young in mind!!!

      merçi Christine, je trouve dessiner dans des globes difficile et pour cette raison, j’ai choisi pour des motifs simples.

      Thank you Cheryl for your kind words. The seminar has made me very happy and now I am even more motivated to learn as much as possible about Zentangle. It was so nice to discover that I also could do that and I am grateful to join the big “Zentanglefamily”.
      Greetings from Belgium

    Congratulations, it must have been so exciting. *Clapping hands*. I think it must be wonderful to meet others in RL who love tangling too and maybe you even met some of your virtual friends. You even managed to do the Diva’s Challenge too. Clever idea to do a global duo.

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Thank you Yorshire Tortoise. I can really recommend these adventure to everyone, I enjoyed every minute, but was very tired afterwards. (I’ve written a post on my blog with pictures) I met Anja from Germany, a very sweet lady that I virtual knew from the Diva’s Challenge.
      I didn’t draw the global duo now, I have made this work a few weeks ago and it looked for me a good idea to send it to the Challenge.

      Thank you Lady Kate, it was a wonderful experience I will never forget.
      Because I find drawing in globular grids difficult, I have chosen for easy patterns. I’m glad you like it.

    Ook leuk om te horen dat het een succes was in Providence. Zou het graag een keer meemaken.

      Ria Matheussen says:

      Dank je wel Ilse voor het compliment.
      Als je kunt, ga ervoor, het is echt de moeite om het mee te maken al is de reis wel vermoeiend.
