This effort is for Jennifer Mcleans' bookmark Challenge due by Saturday, May 26th.    for The Artists Playroom.    I did it tonight, because I am having my mom come for a visit starting May 23rd.  I want to devote all my attention to her, since we only see each other about once a year.  Mom is 91 years young!  So I will be spending all my time for awhile just visiting with her, my children and grandchildren.  This photo was a little askew, so I didn't crop it down all the way.  The actual cut will be at the edges you see above at the outer edge of the design. I used a stack design with tangles.


  1. Love the whimsy and fun of this piece Gloria! Have a wonderful visit with your mom and family!! You'll be missed!

  2. Thanks so much for the submission, I do love zentangles, especially for bookmarks as they're small and allow for fast creation. This one looks like it took some planning, LOVE the addition of color. I find it hard to add color successfully, so well done. Hope to see you next week!

  3. Gloria, what a fabulous bookmark! I see you are as talented with doodles and zentangles as you are with painting. Beautiful work! A true artist... Have a wonderful visit with your mother! 91 years young. Wow. Something to celebrate. xoxo

  4. beautiful bookmark Gloria! Enjoy your time with family, it's so important!

  5. Gloria,

    It took me awhile to figure out how to leave comments. I am impressed by the way you have your blog set up. I agree. You do love color. I found several pieces of art that spoke to me. I really enjoyed your bookmark. It is awesome.

    I hope you have a wonderful time with your mother. That must be such joy to have someone in your life for so long.

    In reply to your comment, all my furniture is antique, no reproductions. It is mostly all tiger stripe oak and from the period between 1880 and 1910. I have a few pieces of Mission style, but mostly older. Thanks for your visit.

  6. Your bookmark is truly lovely! I love tangles and doodle a bit when I have time.
    I hope you have a great time with your Mom! How lucky you are that she is able to visit!

  7. Great bookmark, I like the idea of stacked and colorful tangles.


  8. Hope the time with your mom and family is wonderful! Beautiful bookmark.

  9. Love your bookmark. You can't go wrong with zentangles. Have a great time with your mum.

  10. This is just lovely... you are soooo good at tangles and the balance is just right... lovely interpretation...xx
