Weekly Challenge #270


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 #268


Greetings Fellow Tanglers!

Happy hump day! I have been busy pushing the kiddos at school to finish projects now that the end of the school year is fast approaching. Sixteen school days left, but who is counting! (OK, I am) With an A-day B-day schedule that means only eight more times for us to get it done!  The challenge this week over at i am the diva is to use a “bit-o-black. I had some fun using a couple of new to me tangles. Batumber, a combination of Twing and Kuke by fellow CZT IX, Kelly Kelly, and ‘dillo by Lori Manoogian, throw in a bit of Printemps and done!

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!

Weekly Challenge #259


Happy St. Patrick’s Day fellow Tanglers!

Just another quick post. I'm counting down to the end of the quarter and things are crazy at school, and of course I have massive grading to do, so not a lot of time to tangle or even look at much. This too shall pass and in one more week I will have a bit of time to tangle and relax. Here are two quick, Touch of Irish tiles for this weeks diva challenge.


Tangles used, Lucky and Tipple. 

 Tangles used, Lucky and Fescu.

Weekly Challenge #258


Greetings fellow Tanglers!

I had time this early part of the week to quick get done two challenges. I have a very loaded rest of the week, so I really needed to get them done and up. Over at i am the diva, it was a use my tangle week and we were to use Rautyflex, by Kathrin Bendel a CZT from Germany. I have to agree that this one is a very high focus tangle, and no matter what I did to follow the step outs, I couldn’t get this one to work the way it was shown. I did however get it to work pretty well by starting with just a basic grid and going from there. I was able to see where things went using a straight grid, the other just didn’t work with my mind. I also moved it into some Tripoli, and I can see it morphing into quandary quite well too, and when I have a bit more time plan to play with that one. So here is my diva challenge, Rautyflex and Tripoli.



Over at Joey’s weekly tangle challenge she challenged us with a string and these three tangles, Buttercup, Fescu and tipple. I had not used Buttercup before so it was another new to me tangle, and one that I know that I will use again. I really am looking forward to spring so used a watercolor wash of green first, and then tangled over it.

  
That’s all for this week, and as I apologize ahead of time that I won’t be able to leave comments for you this week.
