Mini Mooka on an inchie

Oops, I forgot to sign this one... Maybe because my signature would be huge next to this tiny inchie (2,5 x 2,5 cm). So, I just leave it like this for this time.

Are you curious what other people did with this challenge of Joey? Take a look at her blog!

Thank you for visiting my blog - I wish you all the best for 2015!

Square One: Ahh!

Square One (on Facebook) challenged us to tangle the Ahh-pattern. It reminds me of fireworks, which we will see soon at the beginning of 2015. So I decided to create an 'Ahh, look at these beautiful fireworks'- tile :-)

It's a String Thing #72

In this magical time of year, Adele Bruno challenged us to tangle in string 072 and use the tangles Uncorked and Mooka. 

Two well-known patterns, that I don't seem to use very often. So, it took me a little time to figure out how to put these in string 072. The result doesn't look as balanced as I wanted, but it was a nice excercise!

Joey's #40: chillon on a twinchie

Joey gave us a nice, restful challenge this week: she wants to see us use the pattern 'Chillon' on a twinchie. That's a miniature card of 5 x 5 cm. Normally, zentangle tiles are 9 x 9 cm.

This challenge was so nice and restful that I decided to make two of them :-)

Square One: Crescent Moon

The Facebook Square One challenge was to focus on one of the earliest tangle patterns we learn: Crescent Moon.

Once finished, this tile looked to me like a  Crescent Moon party where Hollibaugh was invited too :-)

It's a String Thing #71

Adele Bruno chose the new tangle Arukas for this week's challenge, because it reminds her of the Star of the East - and we're close to Christmas!

We were to use string 069 and I decided to use all of the lines the string offers. I like monotangling! Once finished, I realised I should have left some white space in the top right as well to get a tile that is better balanced, but I'm still happy with the result.

Joey's challenge #39

Joey challenged us to tangle a word that describes what the Holiday means to us. 'Joy' was the first thing that came to my mind, so off I went :-)

Diva's Challenge #198: "K.I.S.S. (Keep it simple, silly!)"

This week's Diva Challenge is the same as her very first one four years ago: the challenge to simplify. I'm only in (and addicted :-) ) since July this year, so the challenge was new to me. I chose to use Krli-Qs and CO2. 

My tile almost seems too simple to me, but at the same time I like the quietness it sends out. Thanks for that, Laura!

And thank you as well, for visiting my blog! Your comments give me a brighter day :-)

It's a String Thing #70

It's almost Christmas, so this week Adele Bruno chose a string and tangles that are festive: string 073 and two patterns: Verdigogh and Pauline's Pigtail. 

I was hesitating what surface to make black: the one under Pauline's Pigtail or the one under Verdigogh. I couldn't leave everything white, it felt I needed to put contrast in this tile. Finally, I decided to make the middle part black and do some shadowing over Pauline's Pigtail. Now that it's finished, I'm not sure if the black is too much of a weight over Pauline's (now squashed ;-) ) Pigtail. Luckily the last one still looks airy ;-)

Square One: Indy-Rella

The Facebook-group Square One challenged us to create a tile with Indy-Rella. Other patterns I used are Auraknot, Punzel and Ojo. A funny combination, which was really nice to do!

Playing around

I love the style of Helen Williams and was pleased to receive her 2014 Pattern Folio. It's so nice to use her creative ideas! Thank you, Helen!

Diva's Challenge #197: Arukas

Arukas: a new official tangle. It's very nice to play with, I discovered :-) To put some variation into the tile, I added some Btl Joos.

Take a look at the other Arukas entries at the Diva's blog. It's very nice to see all the Arukas-creations of other people. 

Thank you for taking a look at my blog - your comments are allways welcome :-)

Joey's challenge #37

Winter arrived at Joey's place, so she asked us to use 'snow' tangles:
S - Scrumble
N - Nvelope
O - Ojo
W - Widgets

Tangling kept me warm :-)

It's a String Thing #69

We were Tickled to Tangle string 067 and use Sand Swirl, Screen, Snowzags and Sooflowers. Another nice challenge from Adele Bruno!

Diva's challenge #196: All Dolled Up

This week's Diva guest blogger is Emily Classon. She asked us to get inspired by dolls, which is a real challenge to me, because I never was a dolls-girl :-) However, I love magic fairies (who doesn't :-) ), so I tried to create a tangled version. It didn't really work out the way I wanted, but at least she looks happy ;-)
