November Mandala & My 29th and 30th Patterns


Yesterday I wrote this post in my FB Tangle It! Mandala Club:

"November is the month in which I get into spiritual contact with my ancestors. A month in which I focus on my goals and wishes and seek inspiration during the long hours of darkness. This is my favorite time of the year".

I really love October and November. They reflect my being "dark and introvert" and a fan of everything gothic, decaying and mysterious. :)

This is my November Mandala made with two of my new patterns 



Have a great week!

Paris & My 28th Pattern

Long time no see! 
I have been very busy with the making of a couple new projects  of which I'll tell you in a few days.

These are also sad times for the world.
For this reason I created 2 mandalas.

For the first one I used my friend Ina's tangle pattern "Paris"
You can find lots of Ina's patterns HERE

For the second one I used my 28th pattern "ChainedH"

I won't add  useless words for what happened last Friday. I think that all has already been said and done. I will only express it through my art.

Have a great week!

Happy Samhain/Halloween!

This year I have been so busy in October that I wasn't able to draw my usual Halloween drawings.
I only managed to create this one last night.

To all my friends who will enjoy the company of their Ancestors tonight I wish merry Samhain and joyful new beginnings!

to all the amazing Souls who purchased our humble
and wrote beautiful reviews!
This is really more than what I expected and I am still in shock!
This has been a whole year ruled by events that TRANSFORMED my life, and it's not finished, yet!
So, once again, THANK YOU

This is a thought I wrote in a very supportive FB group some days ago:
"[sharing power]
When you stop complaining about your life and start to broaden your vision, you will realize that in front of you there are many paths to reach your goals. If one doesn't work, just jump on the other and follow it to the top.
 This is what I have learned this year. Two of my biggest goals are going to come true (actually one has already!) because I have switched my path.
There's always a way to make it"

Working with Ina and Alice has been an awesome experience, one that will continue with more projects! 
So, stay tuned!
Still talking about transformation, I want to show you what my friend Rebecca Kane has just released:

Introducing you to TANGLE IT! JOURNAL

These last two weeks have been super busy! :)
I can finally reveal my secret project!

My magical FB friends, INA SONNENMOSER and ALICE HENDON, and I 

It is called 
and you can find it HERE 
Blog is HERE
(Visit our blog for previews)
But what is a Tangle It! journal?
Let me explain it to you:

Are you ready for some tangling fun?

Are your ideas about tangling all . . . well, tangled up?
This Journal will help untangle the mystery of tangling with a brief explanation of this specific art style, then we will dive head first into a whole lot of tangletastic fun and zaniness that is tangling.

In this Journal you find:

  • 20 step by step instructions of new, unpublished patterns
  • Tips from fellow tanglers
  • Strings
  • Art challenges
  • Inspiration and ideas
 This idea has been swirling around my head for months, a sort of interactive tangling book filled with fun and practice for tangles lovers.
When I met Ina and Alice om FaceBook I instantly knew that they were the right buddies for this project. We are such a wonderful team!
The most intriguing fact about our team is that 
I am from Italy, Ina is from Germany and Alice is from U.S.A!
And we never met in person!
This has been an incredible challenge for us all, because it involved great skills of collaboration and TRUST.
I am so proud of our amazing team!

During the first three days from release our book has been ranked #1 among New Releases and #3 in our category (Drawing > Pen Ink)
This goes beyond my wildest expectations!
I want to say thank you to my family and all my friends who believed in this project and supported me.
I hope our journal will bring you as much fun and happiness as we had while creating it!

If you purchased our book and want to show us how you used it, you can join us on

Have a great week!

Transformation Update & my 24th,25th,26th and 27th patterns

Long time no see!
So many things have happened since my last blog update!
I cannot write about the most important one, yet, but I can show you the rest. Eheheh!

We have a newborn deck down at REBECCA KANE'S  YOUR SHERO'S JOURNEY

The Abundant SHEro Oracle Cards have been printed!
36 Oracle cards featuring my crystals inspired artwork!
They are not yet on sale, but will be soon.
I am soooo proud of Rebecca's decks. We understand each other completely and it's a pleasure to work with her.
Aren't these cards juicy? :)

This is my year of TRANSFORMATION.
I am following Rebecca's  
Moon Journal - Unlock more of you really are 
daily prompts and rituals, a powerful journey into your true inner self.
Believe me: it can do magic! :)

And, yes, these are my illustrations for the workbook. :)

Working on Rebecca's Oracle Decks gave me enough self-confidence (something I always lacked) and courage that I decided to start a project I had been keeping in my drawer for some time. 
Hopefully it will be ready in October and I will be able to brag about it. Ehehheh!
For now I leave you with my new patterns!





Have a great week!

Friday Idea & 23rd Pattern

It's too hot these days for staying at the PC. We are experiencing a huge heat wave in Italy, and I don't have air conditioning!!!! 
So I made my fan my best friend and and try to draw something.

This week I have been asked to become Admin of the Zentangle: Journaled and Tangled FB group!
I am so excited! I have been tangling for 5 years now and this for me is a sort of reward for my efforts to improve my skills. :)
Thank you, Alice and Jane, for this opportunity! :)

In the group we host a weekly challenge called Friday Idea.
Come join us! :)
This week's Idea is 

1)Take a page from an old book, cut out words or sentences and combine them into a poem
2) Draw your tangle
3) Glue your poem on your tangle
4) Show us your work! 

Cut Up is one of the techniques used in Found Poetry.

From Wikipedia:
"Found poetry is a type of poetry created by taking words, phrases, and sometimes whole passages from other sources and reframing them as poetry by making changes in spacing and lines, or by adding or deleting text, thus imparting new meaning".

 Here is mine

#1 - "MURDER": 
atavistic rage. 
No life

properly fortified, 
obscured by shadows 
of passion.

The pic on the left shows my new tangle pattern
Here it is!

Have a great weekend!

Zentangle: Stacked and Tangled & Zentangle: Journaled and Tangled

This month I have joined two amazing FaceBook Groups about Zentangles


Alice and Jane have taken the zentangling movement to a higher level, using stacking and journaling to enhance the Zentangle experience. 
I'm having a lot of fun lately with circle templates, and our super Admins asked me to write a post for our weekly Idea for Participation in both groups!!
I'm sooooooo excited!! :)

So, here we go!
If you haven't joined the groups, yet, do it now! You won't regret it.

This is the Idea:
  • draw a 4 inches or 12 cm circle on your paper or journal
  • with a pencil draw a string (if you are creating a stacked circle, make sure your strings follow the same direction. See samples below and guidelines in the group)
  • Tangle!!!
 Here are some samples:

Enjoy your Zenstacking and Zenjournaling!! :)
