Weekly Challenge #367


Greetings Fellow Tanglers!

I am so Happy that Laura is back after her break. I missed hearing about her wonderful family, but it was so fun to see the amazing pictures from this summer. For me the break was needed also. I had not realized how fast and furious my pace was, until I slowed down. I found that I really was on the rat race! School is back in session and I made it through the first week, and almost the second. It’s amazing but it almost feels like I never left. I do miss being able to sleep in until 7:00 like I was used to this summer! Anyway, here is my piece for the diva challenge this week of using ‘Nzeppel and some Flux. It reminds me of the weeds that grow up though the cracks in driveways and sidewalks and such.

They do make my day!
Have a great week and Tangle on!

Weekly challenge #362


Greetings Fellow Tanglers!
The challenge over at the diva this week is a UMT challenge using the diva’s own tangle Somnee. It’s been busy again for me and I haven’t had a lot of time for my own work but did manage to get this one done today during my enrichment Zentangle class here at school. The kiddos tangled and so did I. Here is my tile colored with watercolor, tangled with the navy PN Micron, and highlighted with white charcoal.

Weekly Challenge #360


Greetings Fellow Tanglers!

Busy at work with all the state testing going on right now. This is the first week of three, and it has already caused havoc with my schedule. The testing is in the mornings and the afternoons are regular classes, so I have kids all over the place with their current projects… Sigh, this too shall pass, right? We also had a major snow event this past Saturday and when it was all said and done late Sunday, we were digging out of 15 inches of the white stuff. Are we ever going to have spring?  The diva challenge this week is a duo tangle using Shattuck and Tripoli. Here is my tile using the two.

Weekly Challenge #358


Greetings Fellow Tanglers!



The challenge from the diva this week is a UMT, Pickpocket by Tomas Padros. I kept this one pretty simple as it was the first time that I had tried this tangle. I did add a little more line work, not sure how successful it was, but I enjoyed using this tangle.



I did the challenge last week of using Paradox, but didn’t have time to get it up, so here is that tile too. With both I went back to the basics of black and white.

Weekly Challenge #356


Greetings Fellow Tanglers!

Just a couple of more days now, and Spring Break here I come. Still have a bunch of grading to wade through for the end of third quarter, but my mission is to get it done before break, so I can enjoy some me time. I did steal a few minutes to finish the diva challenge, "What’s in a name?" I used my name to make a dingbatz.

Weekly Challenge #355


Greeting Fellow Tanglers!

I just finished my diva challenge tile while my 7th grade enrichment class is in here tangling with me. I enjoyed using Verve this week and just played with it as a monotangle. Added in a few Perfs and done.
I used a watercolor tile, the PN blue black pen, graphite and some white charcoal for highlighting.

Weekly Challenge #354


Greetings Fellow Tanglers, 


Somehow February mostly slipped right by me, for the diva challenges. I started all the heart themed ones, but didn’t finish. They are all sitting in the "to finish someday pile.” It was a rough month emotion wise, my late husband’s birthday, my birthday, and Valentine’s day, were all big celebrations around the house, and this year I just was not feeling it… I know that it’s the year of the firsts, but Hopefully March will get me out of the funk. 

I did manage this week, to get the diva’s challenge done. We were to use Simone Menzel’s tangle Siri. I paired it with Well, Tropicana, and a bit of Poke Leaf. I like that there are so many possibilities for tangleations with this one.

Weekly Challenge #349


Greeting Fellow Tanglers!

Just a quick one this week, for the diva challenge of using Rumpus. I didn’t have a chance to play along this year on the 12 days of Zentangle, and had been meaning to try out this new tangle, so this was the perfect chance to do so.
I used one of my watercolor tiles and one of the pens from Sakura’s PN microns. It has a blue-black ink that I really like the color of.

Weekly Challenge #347


Greetings Fellow Tanglers!

I hope that everyone had a great Holiday season and a great start to their new year. I have been busy getting back into the swing of things at work after having some time off.  The end of the quarter is next week, so that means that I have been buried in grading again. Did take a little time off last weekend to watch the Minnesota Vikings game and “Miracle in Minneapolis” ending!  Go Vikes! I was also fortunate to meet one of the team just last night. Here is a photo of tight end, Kyle Rudolph, and I at one of our local restaurants on Lake Minnetonka. I was able to wish him good luck for the Philly game this weekend, and tell him to bring it home for the Super bowl. A bonus for me at 6 foot myself, was also getting to feel short! It was a fun evening!



As for the diva challenge, here are the objects I used for my string.

 
The finished tile, using Hollibaugh, Pepper, Crescent Moon, Diva Dance, Paradox, Marasu, and Flux. With that many tangles, I felt the need to leave plenty of white space as I was afraid that it would become way too busy.
