Thanks to Lisa Swifka, I am happy to welcome you to my blog and One World One Heart 2011.
I am an artist living in the Pacific Northwest on Vancouver Island. I love creating whether it be with watercolours, acrylic, mixed media, beads, photography. Recently I discovered Zentangles and have given many tiles away as gifts. My gift to the lucky blogger this year will be one of my Zentangles Tiles, your choice. You can scroll down my blog and look at the many different styles and pick your pattern. You might also look at some of the other things that I have done as well while you are visiting. Please leave a comment and your Blog # so that I can visit you. The lucky winner will be announced Feb 17th. Good Luck and thank you for visiting.
