Weekly Challenge #197


Welcome back to Laura over at i am the diva.  The challenge this week is to use Arukas in our tiles. But first I have some catching up to do.


I did a second tile for Sandy Hunter’s challenge #195, “Turning Old into New”. I started that week out showing you the different ways to do Widgets, but wanted to also show you a finished tile.

Next up is Emily Classon’s challenge #196, “All Dolled UP”. I had this one started, and worked on it during the week, but last week was a busy one for me as besides teaching full time, I was also getting ready to do an in service day for teachers at the end of the week, using a new program that we are learning this year at school. Those always make me a bit nervous, especially the tech piece, so I really needed to get my ducks in a row! I have a doll that a good friend of mine gifted me a couple of years back. It doesn’t really have a name per say…. It is called a "D, ends in it" doll, to be used for stress relief, and it was the first thing that popped into my head when I read the challenge. It gets used frequently when things are not going so well!  So here is a tangled "D" doll.



Lastly are the two Bijou tiles with a couple of different ways, using Arukas. I only had the wee ones with me, so would like to try this on a larger tile, but for now this will do. 



Thanks for visiting and for the kind comments you leave. They make my day.
Have a Great Week, and Tangle ON!

  3. I love that widget tile, I really must have a go with that pattern. The doll is a little scarey because of that stitched up mouth but the patterns are very good indeed. And the two bijou tiles are amarvellous demonstration of how block colourong can change a pattern. Quite an education.

    1. Ha! She did end up being a bit scary looking! I do love my real D-fill in the blank-it doll thought. She comes in handy for those days we all have once in awhile! ;)

  10. I really like all your tiles from the various challenges. If you were to punch a hole for a sting in your aruka bijous, I can see them as Christmas tree ornaments. Fun.

  21. Hello. I love your stress relief doll - looks a bit crazy - and then a bit cool too. Your Arukas are dynamic. loved the alternating areas of being filled in and not; and then not completely filling in the whole Bijou with the Aruka. Cheers.

  22. Challenge 197 : J'aime beaucoup ces deux 'tiles' en noir et blanc, ils sont faits pour être l'un à côté de l'autre.
    Challenge 197: I love these 'tiles' in black and white, they are made to be the one next to the other.

  24. Kate,
    I had to stop by to see what you are doing,when you aren't leaving kind comments on our Zentangle tiles.I love your work, and agree that the d---it doll looks a bit like a voodoo doll. She is certainly a doll that I know!
