Weekly Challenge #285


The challenge from the diva was to relax and get back some of that Zen while tangling this week. I almost always tangle this way. This past year especially. It has been my escape from the dealings with my husband’s dementia and all that that entails. I started this on out with a basic string, and used some of my go to tangles, ones that I didn’t have to think about. 


 Tangles used; Onamato, Printempts, Paradox, Purk, Yincut, Poke Leaf, and Poke Root.

 For the second little bijou I just started without a string and let it go where it wanted to go.

 
 Tangles used: Tipple, Printempts, Zinger, Poke Leaf, Herzlbee, Schnucki-bee-Doo, Msst.

Weekly Challenge #284


Greetings fellow Tanglers!

It was a short, fast, furious summer for me this year and with all the stuff continuing to go on with my hubby, I didn’t really do any tangling at all. Usually summer is my time to really go to town, but not this year. Decided I had to break that habit, and carve out a little time again. I will say that I am feeling a little rusty! I am already back to school again, and almost done with week three.  It almost feels like I never left! The challenge this week from the diva is a monotangle using Tripoli. Here is my tile for the week.



Here’s a little bijou tile with some different ways to embellish Tripoli, so I have a collection of possibilities.



I also did last week’s challenge but never did get the time to post it so here is that one using Center Square by Aleesha Satta, CZT.

Greetings Fellow Tanglers!

Crazy busy right and counting down those last 5 days of school! Needless to say I am buried in grading and the end of the year wrap up. Diva challenge this week, "Skye", a fun tangle from Margaret Bremner You can see my first attempt here. This tile, much like life right now seemed to have a mind of it’s own and went a bit nuts!

Weekly Challenge #269


Greetings Fellow Tanglers!
I hadn’t gotten around to trying the new tangle Ellish yet, so the diva challenge this week was just what I needed. Worked with 6th grade kids during class today to try it out. They are finishing out their school year making Zentangles and are really excited about this. I had a couple of kids that wanted me to teach them how to tangle Ellish today, but I asked if they would give me until next class to practice, as this was the first time that I had used it. They are looking forward to learning it next time.  I can see that this tangle is going to become a favorite of mine, as it really is fun to do. I also enjoyed playing with the shading!

Weekly Challenge #268 and IAST #145


Happy Friday Fellow Tanglers!



It is beautiful spring weather here and lots of warm sunshine. I am looking forward to maybe getting a bit of gardening done this weekend.  Had a bit of extra time this week and decided on a second tile, and followed a couple of other people’s idea to make the tile work for more than one challenge.  Here is the tile that works for Adele Bruno’s, “It’s a String Thing”, and also works for my second tile in the diva’s challenge this week for “A bit-o-black”. I used Watercolor, Color pencil, Clear glaze pen, micron and graphite for this one.



Have a Wonderful Weekend

Weekly Challenge #266


Greetings Fellow Tanglers!
The challenge over at i am the diva, is a use my tangle week, with Henrike Bratz’s tangle Crux. The rain has finally stopped, and now it looks like I am going to have to break out the lawn mower for the first mowing.

 Crux and Well.

I also made these tiles that will be used as RAZ, random acts of zentangle in the care home where my husband lives. The staff takes such good care of him, so I often will leave tiles around as a special treat for them to find.

Weekly Challenge #262


Greetings Fellow Tanglers!

This is a quick one this week. Have been under the weather with a spring cold, but had to try out the diva’s use my tangle challenge. I started with a tile that had a watercolor wash on it to try out Lynn Mead’s, Fassett. I just let it morph where it wanted to, and used some prismacolor pencils for the shading. Enjoy!
