Weekly Challenge # 165

Hi everyone!  I didn’t have time to post last week, as I was getting ready for Tangle U. I had an awesome time seeing old friends and making new ones. All the CZT’s were so great and I had a blast. I am still unpacking goodies and trying to organize everything in my head and notes, as it was truly a whirlwind. I will be sharing more of what I learned here and there. For now here is my tile for this weeks, i am the diva challenge, using Camelia, a tangle by Anne Marks. I tried taking this one out of the grid to see what I could do with it.

This is a technique that Marie Browning taught us using Tombow Colored pencils on impressed black tiles. I also used some Caran d’Ache, and a white Prismacolor pencil that I had in my stash too, to blend out the color a bit more. 
Here is the tile using the same technique that I completed at Tangle U.

Your comments from the weeks challenges make my day! Thank you.
 Hope everyone is having a good week, and Happy Hump Day!

More on the Weekly Challenge #163

I just couldn’t stay away from playing with Rixty this week. It has been unseasonably cold again here in Minnesota, and very gray skies, so I needed some color! I used prismacolor pencils for the color, but couldn’t get them to blend quite like I wanted them to due to the slickness of the paper, but I still had fun! Here is a second one for the challenge. I titled it.. 

Ramblin’ Rixty!

 Many thanks for the lovely comments!
Happy Hump Day! Have a great rest of the week and enjoy tangling!

Weekly Challenge #163

Happy Monday! Wow this weeks challenge worked well for me! This morning I just finished an ATC using the new tangle Rixty! I'll continue to play around with this one, but for now, with a busy week of state testing coming up at school, I'll show you this. 

You can also see some of my other examples of using Rixty here, and also with this post.
Thanks to i am the diva for another great challenge, check out the other wonderful art! 

Thank you for all your kind comments from last week!
Happy Tangling!

More on the challenge and CBS Sunday Morning

I am happily participating in a worldwide effort to encourage the CBS Sunday Morning Show to do a story about Zentangle!  Anyone that wanted to participate was asked to send a letter and a tile in a square envelope, and mail it on April 1st. Mine went out, but the photos were on another SD card, so just wanted to share with you, what I sent along. Here is the tile/card, the envelope, and then the letter. 

Also my second try at using my initials for a string, from the, i am the diva challenge this week. 

 My thanks to you all, for your lovely comments. They make my day! 

Have a great rest of the week and Tangle on!

Weekly challenge #162

Greetings! I am back from a week of sun, rest, and relaxation. My spring break was last week, so I gave myself the week off from posting or doing anything on electronic devices. I had a great time, on a beach with the sand between my toes, and after the weather here this year it was much needed. I even missed the last, (I hope) snowstorm of the year, that dropped 9 inches of the white stuff while we were gone.
The challenge this week from i am the diva is to use your initials as a string. Here is my string, and finished tile.

 Many thanks for the lovely comments!

Have a great week and tangle on!
