It's a String Thing #48 and Diva Challenge #175

I really liked the tangles and string that was picked out by Adele Bruno, CZT this week for “It’s a String Thing”. I wanted to work some more using the black tiles, and a technique that I picked up at Tangle U this year. Here is my tile for this challenge this week. The tangles used are:
Purk and
Printemps - Official Zentangle® patterns
Pippin by Juliet Herring
Pressed Wood by CZT Margaret Bremner

The challenge from i am the diva this week is a UMT Challenge brought to us by Henrike Bratz. We were to use her tangle Crux. I had a good time with this tangle and it was a fun one to learn. Here is my tile for this weeks challenge.


My thanks for stopping by and for the comments you leave! 
They make my day!
Have a great weekend and keep tangling!


  1. Your Crux reminds me of a bag of delicious candy! It isn't very often the bag is better than the sweets, but you did it!

  2. They're great. I really like how you used Crux, especially how you handled that portion at the top of the bottom section. Sometimes spaces like that are tough for me, but you handled it beautifully!

    And I love what you did with the String Thing challenge! Your placements are great and your designs drawn lovely. But those colors are fabulous! Color is something I struggle with, so I usually stick to black and white. I'm impressed whenever someone can give such dimension to color, like you did. And the empty space frames it all so well.

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Wow! Both tiles are soooo beautiful! I love the colors you used on the black tile. So rich... like jewels! Your crux looks amazing! Your line work, color choices, and shading... It's all awesome!

  4. Both tiles are gorgeous! Especially I like the first one. Wonderful colours on the black paper! Very nicely done!

  5. Wow, for both tiles. I wish my entry for the String Thing was this beautiful (I could not make a thing of it).

  6. Wow, Kate, this new technique is really stunning - such amazing effects and the colours are sparkling on the page. Crux looks wonderful here - love the form you have chosen to showcase it.

  7. That is a lovely black tile! I would love to learn this new technique. Beautiful effects on the Crux tile!

  8. Both tiles are gorgeous and your color choices are great. The shape, colors and shading on Crux are amazing. Beautifully done. :) Nathalie

  9. I really love the Crux tile. The way you made it curve and almost rise from the surface is just sooooo fine. Excellent.
