Letter S

This tag was inspired by a blog friend of mine, Shoshi.  She created the Zentangle pattern SPAWN and I wanted to use it on my tag this week and the tadpole pattern inspired the rest of the design.  It seemed apt to me to place SPAWN in water and then this Lily pond tag appeared!  I used the dragonfly template from my Zentangle card blanks that I sell on line and they fit perfectly as embellishments on my tag.

The other patterns this week are; on the lily pads SNAYLZ TRAYL, in the sky SUNRAY and on the dragon flies wings SHARDS.  If you want to see one of Shoshi's gorgeous Zentangle pieces then please visit her blog.  She has a much more expert hand and delicate hand than me!

I found a really cool irridescent ribbon in my stash that pulled up into a lovely bow to top off my tag and match the Glittery Stickles I used on my fluttering dragonfly wings.

As I was downloading the photo of my tag I also down loaded some photos of our dog Comet that I took this morning in the park and I just had to share this one!

Look at him.....butter wouldn't melt ;-)  Don't worry though a little while later and after a dip in the stream.......

......and a really big shake!  Hey Presto back to white doggy again!  If a little soggy doggy!

Thank you for the lovely comments last week - glad you enjoyed the spinner tag!  Looking forward to seeing everyones tags this week.  Hugs Helen x


  1. Wonderful tag, really brilliant. And the photos of your black legged doggy, just fantastic! Thanks for sharing! Hugs, Valerie

  2. Simply gorgeous dragonflies on your tag Helen. Loving the colours too, but not the muddy legs. Oh my! Lol
    Mo :0)

  3. Oh Helen, I am THRILLED to see that you have used my tangle pattern Spawn on your "S" tag!!! Thank you so much, and also for the lovely write up and the link to my blog. What a sweetie you are!

    I adore the tag. It's absolutely fabulous. I love how the Spawn pattern has inspired the whole lily pond idea with the beautiful dragonflies. Love it, love it!!

    Love your doggie piccies too. Why do dogs always come out of the water and wait till they are right by you before they shake?


  4. Very neat! Love the dragonfly wings. Looks like Comet had fun!

  5. I continue to be amazed at all these wonderful patterns - Spawn is so appropriate for this lovely pond setting with dragonflies.

  6. You know I love and admire ALL your zentangle tags, but this one I really really love! It is such a gorgeous scene, with the dragonflies on the lily pads and the frog spawn in the water, it so reminds me of a little garden pond I had many many years ago.

  7. Dang, in all the excitement I totally forgot to say that your doggy is adorable! Tehehehe, love the ( temporary ) ombre colouring ;-)

  8. This is amazing! Really love this one - the dragonflies are gorgeous as are the lilypads! Comet is super gorgeous too! Carolyn xx

  9. I think this is your best in the series I really love it. Your Comet is super, like kids, wanting to play in the water! X

  10. Brillant tag as normal! Love the fluttering dragonflies. How cute is Comet! Golden retrievers and mud just go together! My golden retriever Jack is 13 now and i still can't keep him out of the water or the mud :) But there are just great loving dog's.

  11. Wow, Helen! This is one of your most beautiful Zentangle tags yet. Blessings!
