A ZIA Spiralation Celebration

200,000 pageviews!!! It's an exciting day here at Shelly Beauch blog!!

Thank you to everyone who visits, stays a few minutes or writes inspirational comments, thank you for your delightful emails and messages.

So in the spirit of appreciation I am giving away 7 Zentangle Inspired Art Spiralations.

Paper size: A4 - 21cm x 29cm (8" x 11")

Choose the ZIA you like and give it a name, one word is okay.
Type the number and name in the comment box.
My daughter Katy and grandchildren Heidi and Samuel are going to choose the winners after 7 days.


Zentangle has enriched my life with addictive creativity, I appreciate every delightful moment with a freedom to express myself without the concern of judgement. I have made treasured friendships and will be forever grateful to you all particularly Rick and Maria for enchanting art, passion and enthusiasm.

With love and hugs
Michele

  10. I love all 7, but 2 seems to have joy just bubbling out of it.
    I'm thinking a title of "Joyfull" is a good one.
    Thank you for hours of pleasure looking at your work.
    I would also would like to thank you for sharing your trip across the USA and your certification. I was a pleasure seeing your impressions of all you saw on your trip. Am so happy you got to see part of my country---wish I could see your country too.

  18. Wow, Shelly, these are all breath taking! You can definitely call this your Nautilus Series. If I had to pick just one, it would be #7. I would call it "Providence" to celebrate where we all met and became CZT7's!

  22. How Cool and thank you.

    I would name #1 (my favorite), "by the sea"; it reminds me of a sea shell and since I just moved to the beach, I'm all about anything ocean/sea related at the moment, hahahaaa..

  33. #7 'Low Tide Treasures'

    This piece makes me think of the shells, starfish & flecks of foam left on the beach at low tide.

    All of your work is so lovely. Thanks for sharing.

  34. Wow! They are all great! I like #3 -Pink is my favorite color, and the design
    almost looks like an "S" - my initial - so my name would be Spring Swirls.
    I am so glad I found your blog! I am becoming totally addicted to
    Zentangles at age 92!

    ReplyDelete
  35. #7 reminds me of a Tide Pool and all the wonders you find within so my name would be "Life in the Tide Pool". These are all stunning pieces. Thank you for sharing them and congratulations on your 200M hits! MaryAnn

  36. Number 7, Naughty Nautilus.

    Congrats on the mega number of views...and so deserved. Your work is stunning! You always manage to take my breath away when I open your latest creation. Keep up the great work!

  37. Oh my Shelly, you have outdone yourself! These are all so fantastic! I am not surprised you have had so many people visiting your site, you and your work have always been an inspiration to me! I love all the ZIAs, the 2 that are speaking to me the most are #2 which I would name "Funky Horns of Fun" as I see several horns with all sorts of fun escaping! The other ZIA I just fell in love with is #5, I see it bursting with all sorts of summer fun items like a Funky Caterpillar, watermelon seeds being spit out, bouncing beach balls and fun beehives...so I would name it "Bursting Summer Bliss". Thank you so much for all you do for this wonderful artform!

  38. #3 Hawaiian Lei garland, cos it remind me of garland that Hawaii give to you on your arrival. I like all your works but #3 is best for me. Congs on 200,000 pageviews, yipee!!

  39. #1 Snail-a-vision
    #7 Snailestial Galaxy

  40. I am inspired so much by your work..thank you.
    I am drawn to number 5 which I name MIGRAINE..
    I can even see a profile of the face and the actual pain pulsating on the side of the head.

    I suffer from migraine and to me it is the first time a visual
    ever described it so well.

    but I truly loved the piece.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I adore #3. I would name it "Enchantment". Your work, as always, is so beautiful!!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. #7 - Tin and Tang ...reminds me of Yin and Yang, and tang short for Tangles of course! :o)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love #3-Seahorse because I see the shape of a seahorse inside. It is perfect for Father's Day. I do admire your work.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Michele, all of the pieces are absolutely beautiful but I think, (after long deliberation: ) that my favorite is #4. I would name it Fragile Blooms.
    I think it describes, not only the intricate, delicate nature of the drawing, but could also represent the fragility of people.
    Blessings as you continue to 'bloom' in your art work. cindy lee

  45. Michele, I love your blog and visit often. If you ever come to SA and hold workshops I'll be there. I love all of these ZIAs but #3 is my favourite. It reminds me of 'My Grandmother's Garden'

  46. You mean I actually have to choose just ONE??? They are all so lovely…. sigh…..
    But I will go with #2 because I actually thought of a name: "Shout-out". It just seemed to be spilling forth goodness from the rope ends.

    You are my most favorite Tangler of all. Wish I had been in Providence with you last year. My turn is this August. Thanks for your wonderful blog and all your gorgeous postings!

    Michele, I have been visiting your site for some time now. I am continually both blown away and inspired by your work. I saw this giveaway yesterday and #6 kept my eye the longest. Last night as I was drifting off to sleep I thought of a name that might fit so I would like to offer "Verdant" as a name for your piece and hopefully it could come and live at my home....I would be absolutely thrilled! Again #6 "Verdant"

  55. Asking me to pick a favorite is like asking me to pick a favorite child! I have to go with these two:
    #3--"So Softly They Swirl"
    #4--"Rapun-shell" (just in case it's not obvious--because of the long braid and the shells!)

    Shelly, you have been an inspiration to some many and so willing to share your talent and techniques with us, we should be giving YOU a prize!

    #6 - Captiva
