Diva's Challenge #195

Another guest post at Diva's blog: this week it's Sandy Hunter. She asked us to change the structure of a pattern, while still retaining its basic basic elements. So: I put Inapod in a grid and Flux in a line. That was fun to do, thank you Sandy! I'm curious to see what other people did. 

Thanks as well to everybody who left (or leaves ;-) ) a comment. Makes me happy!

It's a String Thing #67

Adele Bruno asked us this week to make Zentangle Inspired Art (ZIA) by using string #070 and putting in 3 words. Which words? The ones that came to my mind first when thinking about the things I'm grateful for in life. So, I used the words Love, Friends and Sun and tangled Crescent Moon and Cornerz around it.

Something quilt-like

Joey's weekly challenge #35 is to tangle something that looks like a quilt. I've never quilted, so I just did what I felt 'quiltish' ;-)

It's okay in black and white, but when I think of a quilt, I think of plenty colours. Good reason to use my glaze 3D rollers!

Diva's Weekly Challenge #194

This week's Diva challenge was a... Challenge - to say the least! Tangling (and shading) with our non-dominant hand to 'Embrace the Yuck'...

Of course I want to give Laura and her familie all the support and solidarity they need and deserve, but this challenge made me clear that I'm totally righthanded :-) Also, I'm not sure if I got that great zen-feeling this time, but hey: life isn't all about fun. My spider still sort of looks like a spider though, doesn't he? ;-)

Diva's Weekly Challenge #193 : TriTangle

Holly Atwater, this weeks' guest blogger at the Diva Challenge, liked to issue a challenge of THX (thanks). Why? Beacause today is Veteran's Day in the United States and in a couple of weeks, it's Thanksgiving. In France and Belgium, today is Armistice Day, so plenty of things to commemorate.

The patterns we were to use, are Trio, Huggins and Xyp. They form a lovely TriTangle with a heart in the middle to say THANKS!

I would like to say thanks to you as well for visiting my blog! :-)

Square One: Punzel

Facebook's Square One Challenge is to use Punzel. For some reason, I decided to put Drupe in the background, which doesn't give all the attention to Punzel. But hey: I fancied doing Drupe, and so I did. Sorry Punzel... ;-)

It's a String Thing #65

This week's Tickled to Tangle challenge is to use string #065 and fill it with Paiz, Angel Fish and Tesali. The result looks a bit messy and busy, but I like the contrast I could put in. Thank you for the challenge, Adele!

Diva Challenge #192

Diva's Guest blogger Cris Letourneau arranged a lovely challenge, in which we were asked to use Seton. I wasn't really zen this week, so the lines aren't all as straight as I would have liked. It's allright to me, since tangling gave me the relaxation I needed.
