With this celebratory holiday on the latest possible date in the November calendar this year (the 28th), we have a week more than usual to procrastinate a little longer 😉

Today Dutch tangler Lianne Dam shares her simply sweet La-La-Lavendel tangle with us, and it’s her first on the site.

Lianne is from the town of Assen in The Netherlands, and from Wikipedia we learn that among other things Assen is famous for several big international events in motorcycle racing, ballroom and Latin dancing, and cycling:

Tourist Trophy
The TT Circuit Assen is one of the most famous motorcycle racing circuits in the world and is the only circuit that has been in the MotoGP calendar since its beginnings in 1949. It is also regarded as the “Cathedral of Motorcycle Racing.”

Dance
In November of each year Assen becomes the centre of international attention for the world of Ballroom and Latin American dancers when the city hosts the Assen Dance Festival which includes the Dutch Open Championships. This is an open event for dancers from all countries.

Cycling
Assen is also the capital of the “cycling province” of the Netherlands, Drenthe. There are many high quality cycle paths in the city and surroundings and it is host to regular cycling events such as the Drentse fietsvierdaagse and the Jeugdtour. In 2009 the prologue and opening stage of the Vuelta a España took place in Assen.
The city has twice hosted the International Six Days Enduro.

As for Lianne herself, she writes that in May of this year she discovered the Zentangle® art form,

I was tangling in the garden, and the lovely smell of lavender passed by, which is quite common, because we have several lavender plants in our garden.

This just had to be worked into my tangle and so ‘La-La-Lavendel’ was born.

Lavendel is the Dutch word for Lavender, but I think you already guessed that!

She also includes the tangle enhancer of auras surrounding her tangle, which I’ve taken the liberty of leaving out on my main example above. On the right I played with the idea of La-La-Lavendel in a simple “laurel” wreath shape, this time with auras. Lovely and sweet! And ripe for embellishment if the urge takes you.

Lianne illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing La-La-Lavendel here on her blog and she demonstrates it in two Zentangle tiles, including one with La-La-Lavendel as a ribbon-style tangle.

As you enjoy any of the tangles on the site, please leave a comment of thanks and encouragement to show the artists you appreciate them for sharing their creativity to inspire yours. Your thanks helps motivate them to continue to share!
