Weekly Challenge #206

Greeting everyone. The challenge from i am the diva this week was to use some new tools, due to Laura’s unfortunate thumb cut. As luck would have it, I just received an order from Lynell Harlow, of Dreamweaver Stencils and wanted to try one of them out.  Great stencils by the way! Highly recommend them, and you can find out about them here. I used some Smoosh spray for the metallic feather in the middle, and then tangled with a gold gelly roll, and black micron on top. The metallic surface didn’t do well with the black, but it does give a nice ghost image, in person. Used my brown and black pens with touches of gold for the other two feathers, and all on some toned tan Strathmore paper, I had in a sketchbook. 

I also want to thank you all for your support in this most trying time in my life. It means more than I can say.  Having a spouse go from mild dementia to very advanced dementia in the course of two months, has been a life altering challenge and change. I am thankful that I have tangling in my life to give me a few moments of Zen.

Have a great week and Tangle On!

Weekly Cahllenge #205

Greetings everyone. It’s been another of those weeks, as my Hubby is back in the hospital. I started a Zendala to help save my sanity, but with little time, and about half way through decided that I needed to combine that with the, i am the diva challenge this week. The challenge is to celebrate the Chinese New Year, and it’s the "Year of the Goat." I used a goat’s head to add into this Zendala, along with some red and gold for good luck. Here is my challenge piece for this week.

Thanks for stopping by, and for your comments. They do make my day!
Have a great week and Tangle On!

Weekly Challenge #204

The i am the diva challenge this week is to do whatever tickles our fancy for a “Valentangle”. I had already started some ATC’s, just needed to finish shading and in some cases adding the color. These started out as possibilities for a swap, but alas, I will not have time to finish the others needed to go with them. I have decided that I will make them into some cards instead. I also have a Zendala in the works for my dear hubby, so when I get that done I’ll post that too, but for now here are my Valentangles for the challenge.

 Thank you all for your lovely comments. 
Know that they keep me going these days, and for stopping by.

Have a great week and Tangle On!

Weekly Challenge #202

The challenge from i am the diva is a UMT, use my tangle, brought to us by Eleanor Holt. Our challenge is to use Athitzi, a tangle made up of straight lines. This really is a tangle that incorporates the pen/pencil technique of hatching. I picked string #140 off of and used Athitzi, Crescent moon, and some Tipple to complete my tile. My thanks to all of you who sent such kind thoughts to me last week. I appreciate it more than I can say. It has been a challenging thing getting used to the new normal.

 Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week and Tangle On!
