Weekly Challenge #195

Sandy Hunter is the guest blogger over at i am the diva this week, and she came up with a very fun challenge. Take a pattern, decide whether is it a grid based or a free-form one, and then try to use that pattern in the opposite way. I decided to take one of my own, Widgets, directions and samples here. Widgets was designed as a free-form fill pattern, and I put it into a grid, border, and as Sandy called it, a Conga line! I really liked the way that it worked in a grid and would have never thought about putting it in one. This was a very fun thing to do and I see myself doing more of this in my tangle journal with other patterns, as I have time. I am stopping at one this week as it’s a busy week getting ready for the Thanksgiving festivities.

Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments.
Have a great week and Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!
Tangle On!

Weekly Challenge # 194

Elisa Murphy is the guest blogger; over at i am the diva for the challenge this week. She challenged us to use out non-dominant hand to work on our tiles, or as she called it “Embracing the Yuck!”

Here are some of the thoughts in my head while working…Turn the tile, thinking harder, remember to relax my grip on the pen, working upside down seems to help, turn the tile, think harder…. humm, easier to move my whole arm, Wow that’s pretty wonky, relax that grip again, oh it’s easier to go backwards with the strokes, pretty wonky….

I also launched another random act of Zentangle out into the world. I was in Portland, Oregon for training, for a few days, and here is what I left behind on one of the conference tables. 


 We had a great view from our conference room. 

 They also had some cute yarn bombings going on in the city, based around the theme of the ugly sweater… Too fun!


  Thanks for stopping by, and for the comments you leave.

Happy Hump Day, and Tangle On!

Weekly Challenge #193

The challenge this week from guest challenger Holly Atwater, on i am the diva, is a TriTangle, using Trio, Huggins and XYP. In other words, THX! 

My thanks to all the great folks who continue to spur me on in this tangling journey, and who also keep my spirits up on those down days by leaving me comments. You do not know how much that means to me.

Thanks also to those great men and women who risk their lives in our armed services, and to their families left behind who keep on, keeping on without them, this Veterans Day. Thank you all for your service.

Here are a couple of gratitude tiles…

Have a great week and Tangle On!

Weekly Challenge #192

TGIF! It has been one of those very busy weeks again, so I am running late getting my challenge for i am the diva, done and up this week.  Chris Letourneau is filling in for the diva, and she challenged us to use a great tangle called Seton. I had fun playing with a few new Gelly Roll pens and some color pencils on a black tile. I can see that Seton is going to be one of those go to tangles.

 Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments!
Everyone have a terrific weekend and Tangle On!
