Diva challenge #179

This weeks challenge is to tangle on a small tile. We were introduced to Bijou and his fun beginning. If you haven’t read the Diva’s page, you should check it out. I didn’t have any 2 inch tiles so I drew a little square in my purse sized sketchbook and started a tangle. Of course…

Diva challenge #178

This week’s Diva challenge is to do a DuoTangle using tangles that begin with the letters of you name. I have C and R. I chose Cruffle and Rixty. I was looking to have them sort of morf together. I think it worked out pretty well. This was tangled on water color paper that I…

Diva challenge #177

Our weekly Zentangle challenge was to try out Truffle by Caroline Broady. There are so many things you can do with this tangle. I had some fun playing with it. My tile looks a little like an undersea world to me. This is a great tangle. Thanks Caroline!

Diva Challenge #175

This week the challenge was a  UMT Challenge (Use My Tangle). We were given Crux by Henrike Bratz. I of course, am a little behind in getting mine posted. I had fun doing this. I think the shading made a big difference to the way it turned out. I love this pattern and expect to be using…

Joey’s Weekly Challenge #13

This circle challenge proved to be fun and a little intimidating. I had not created my own large circle to tangle in, before this challenge. I’ve done a couple of Zendalas and done other tangles within multiple circles but nothing like this. The challenge was to only use ONE circle as an outline. All tangles…

Diva Challenge #172

This week’s challenge was Duotangle – Auraknot vs Mooka. I had never tried Auraknot but love Mooka. One of my Auraknots got very messed up, of course it was my first one. But overall I like the piece. I just have to ignore that one area. I REALLY love the colors I put together on…

Kelly’s 30 day creative challenge – Day 18

Though I have been doing things creative, I was on vacation for a while and not following challenges. I had a blast watching my grandson learn to walk. We got to spend some time in Nashville with our daughter, her husband and their cute little guy. I enjoyed every minute of my time with them…

Kelly’s 30 day creative challenge

Day 1 Created for my brother so that he remembers how great he is. What I didn’t mention, is that it is about the size of a business card. The paper is one that I “painted” during a “Paper Play” afternoon at The Photography Center. It was very fun to do. And though I’m not…

Diva Challenge #169

This challenge was using circle strings. I thought it would be fun to use circles within circles. I really like how this turned out. I have really been enjoying doing the Diva challenges. If you do Zentangle and you haven’t tried one of the challenges, I urge you to give it a shot. You can…

Diva Challenge #168

I’m a little late to the party on this one. But I did have some fun with it. I did this challenge on watercolor paper.  I used my Tombow markers and water to create an ombre look. I thought it was fitting for a pattern called “Rain” and it was fun to do. My finished…
