Coaster in the middle

Again three tangles today, this time with Coaster in the middle. At the bottom you see Flukes and top left? No idea, to be honest... ;-)

Lacy in the middle

Three patterns in my tile today; Fiore, Lacy and Rio:

Joey's challenge #162

It's all about Q at Joey's Finish my tile Alphabet challenge. We're starting with Q-Belle and I added Queen's Crown and Quiltz.

Peppered ;-)

It was a long time ago I drew Pepper, so I gave it a go today, together with soms Flux and Tipple:

Circle Diamond

The pattern Circle Diamond is new to me. I pur Brrrst in the middle and some lines and 'eggs' around it ;-)

B-D-F-H tile

I started this tile with Bala, then added Drupe, Fe-Ba and Hexastar.
This came out of this little experiment ;-)

Diva challenge #312

This week Laura likes us to use a liquid to create a string. I 'spilled' some food colouring on a tile and made it wander on my tile with some wind that I blew through a straw.

The patterns I've used are golden oldies: Crescent Moon, Knightsbridge, Bales and Tipple. 

Thank you for visiting my blog! Your comments are always read and much appreciated :-)

Thursday tile

It's always nice to play with patterns I don't use very often :-)
You look at Eye-Wa, Golven, Amun and C-Wing.

New to me

Today I tried three patterns I never drew before. Which one do you like the best? Doozaly (top left), Akoya (bottom left) or Floral Waves (right)?

It's a String Thing #192

This week's challenge of Adele gave me a rediscovery of the pattern Warped Eggs. I love it! Hearts-a-Flutter and Msst were quite nice tobdraw too ;-)

Wednesday, 12 April 2017

Joey's challenge #160

Joey's challenge has arrived at the letter O. We're starting with O2 in the middle and I drew O and Orange Peel around it.

It does look like an Easter egg, like Joey says in the comments :-) It fits perfectly well in Kreanimo's Crea-Cross challenge as well.

Diva challenge #311

First of all I would like to say that I love all the work Laura does to perform her art and passion - and how she invites us to join her on her journey. Thank you so much Laura, for all the creativity you give us!

For this week's challenge, we're drawing at least 1 square and 1 circle on our tile as a string. I filled these 2 shapes and the background with new-to-me tangles: Krefel, Arullo and Frame over. 

Thanks for visiting my blog! You're comments always brighten my day :-)

Shattuck over Ixorus

Do these two tangles go well together? I'm not sure, but I fancied drawing them, so this happened:

Square One: Joki

Our focus tangle Square One (@ Facebook) is Joki. I had forgotten how much I love this tangle!

Thursday, 6 April 2017


I started this tile with drawing Ing (from top to bottom) and then I didn't know what to draw next to it. A couple of minutes later ;-) Puf, Fife, Orbs-la-Dee and Merryweather joined Ing to give me a proper zen-feeling :-)

Joey's challenge #159

We've arrived at the letter N for Joey's challenge and she started with a pretty Natti. I put Nipa and Nymph to it and kept it simple. Nice ;-)

Diva challenge #310

This month's UMT (Use My Tangle) is Frunky. Nice one! I put Bic in the middle and drew some Frunky bits ;-) around it. When you visit Laura's blog, you can see the other entries to this challenge.

Thank you for stopping by! Your comments always brighten my day :-)

Just tangling

No tangle names, no strings, I'm just letting my Sakura play play on paper today :-)

Sunday, 2 April 2017

Crea-Cross: Silence

This week's Crea-Cross has the theme 'silence'. I guess any zentangle tile would fit this challenge, since tangling gives me plenty inner silence. 

But that would be too easy ;-) so I tried to create a tile with a silence 'look and feel'. The pattern i've used is called Aloha.

Square One: Y-ful Power

Can you still discover Y-ful Power in this tile? ;-)
Take a look at Facebook's group Square One to see other creations with this tangle.

It's a String Thing #190

Adele drew us a straight lines string and liked us to fill it with straight lined tangles: Box Spirals, Windfarm and Nouvart. This is my result:

Wednesday, 29 March 2017

Joey's challenge #158

This week we're tangling a letter M tile and tangles. Joey started with Mi2 on the right side and I added Marasu and Munchin.

Tuesday, 28 March 2017

Diva challenge #309

We're tangling the new official pattern 'Noom' for Laura's challenge. I hadn't had time to try it yet, so this was a nice opportunity. I quite like it, although I had to keep paying attention what to do. It doesn't have a 'zen flow' for me yet, but that might come when I do it more often.

Next to noom you see Ennies, Fandance and some black pearls.

Thanks for visiting my blog! You're comments always brighten my day :-)

Square One: Pico

Facebook's group Square One asked us to focus on the pattern Pico. Inspired by Spring coming up, this came out of my pen ;-)

Saturday, 25 March 2017

It's a String Thing #189

Adele gives us a rather loopy string and likes us to use Patience (new to me), Aura-Leah and CO2.

My tile turned out to be pretty dark, but I like it anyway ;-)

Wednesday, 22 March 2017

Joey's challenge #157

We're finishing Joey's Alphabet challenge tile which is all about L-tangles. Joey started with Lee Lee and I put Lanie and Lealad next to it. That was fun!

Tuesday, 21 March 2017

Diva's challenge #308

Laura asked us to use our MacNCheese tangles. "No pressure! Enjoy the process, love each moment. Do the ones that feel great." 

I've got quite a few 'chill' tangles ;-) but today I chose for Bales and decided to keep it simple. No pressure! ;-)

Thank you for visiting my blog! Your comments always brighten my day.

Monday, 20 March 2017


I'm combining 2 challenges: It's a String Thing and Crea-cross, because I think they go well together.

Adele drew us a nice string and asked us to tangle Fricle, Zinger and Fescu to it. Immediately, I saw a 'Spring' tile appear - just what I needed for the Crea-cross challenge by Ilse ;-)

Sunday, 19 March 2017


This one was good for the process of tangling: it made me feel zen when I needed it. I'm glad it did, also because I'm not too proud of the result. At least it did help me ;-)

Thursday, 16 March 2017

Playing with patterns

Today I wanted to draw a string and fill it with 'good old' tangles: Crux, Drupe, Ennies, Eyewa and Frost.

Wednesday, 15 March 2017

Joey's challenge #156

Joey's 'alphabet finish my tile' challenge has arrived at the letter K. Joey started with Kiss and I put Kiasom, Kelp, Kollide, Knightsbridge and Keeko to it. That was fun :-)

Tuesday, 14 March 2017

Square One: Mi2

For Facebook's group Square One I focused on Mi2 today. Quite fun!

Diva challenge #307

Indy and Mazzy, Molly's daughters, were two perfect teachers of this fun tangle. I didn't know the name of it until I just visited Laura's blog to see other entries. So: I just did exactly what these two lovely girls showed me what to do. I still haven't seen any 'official' instructions for Zingo ;-)

Thank you for visiting my blog! You're comments always make me happy :-)

Cirque in the middle

The border of this tile was inspired by one of Molly Hollibaugh's beautiful tiles on Instagram :-)

Crea-Cross #10: Little

This week's Crea-Cross theme is 'little'. So, I took 3 Twinchies (a twinchie is a small tile of 2 x 2 inches = 4,6 x 4,6 cm) and drew some zentangle fun on it :-)

The tangles I've used are Flyte, Bic and Chakra.

Joey's challenge #154

Oh dear! I drew a tile for last week's Joey's 'finisch my tile' challenge and forgot to post it! Too bad, since it's all about the letter I for Ilse :-)

Joey started it with Icanthis (difficult one!) and I put some ING, Ingwi, Infinitus and Ixorus around it. Fun!

Joey's challenge #155

Joey's 'finish my tile' challenge ahs arrived at the letter J for Joey.

She started it with Jelly Roll (bottom left) and I finished it with Jetties, Jobowti, Japonica and Jessicup. I wonder why there's not yet a tangle with Joey's name. Joey's Joy to name something ;-)

Tuesday, 7 March 2017

Diva challenge #306

This week's Use My Tangle is Amphora: a pattern I don't use very often. I combined with Carrie Leaf, Bales and Fescu. Take a look at Laura's blog to see the other entries: it's always inpiring.

Thank you for visiting my blog! Your comments are always read and much appreciated.

Square One: Por Fin

This week's focus of Facebook's Square One group is a new-to-me tangle: Por Fin. You see it on my tile going from bottom left to top right, combined with Tropicana and Xplo-zen.

The road is long and winding ;-)

Different creative ideas of other participants of this challenge can be found at the CreaCross blog of my namesake Ilse ;-)

Diva's challenge #305

We're doing a DuoTangle for the Diva's challenge. I like :-)
The Duo patterns of this week are Marasu (love that one!) and Molygon (which is pretty nice too).

Thank you for visiting my blog: your comments always put a smile on my face :-)

Saturday tile

I started this one with African Artist (top right), but what to put next to it? Lo's, Merryweather and Ahh flew out of my pen ;-)

Friday, 24 February 2017

Square One: Yew-Dee

Facebook's group Square One asks us to focus on Yew-Dee and so I did :-)

It's a String Thing #185

It's been a while since I last participated in this challenge by Adele Bruno, but I'm back :-)

The tangles Adele chose for us this week are all new to me: Flec, Wibble and Edgar. I had a lovely time discovering these patterns!

Wednesday, 22 February 2017

Joey's challenge #153

Joey's Finish my tile Alphabet challenge is all about the H of Hollibaugh! I finished the tile with Hurray and Hibred:

Diva challenge #304: Waybop

The zentangle headquarters launched a new official tangle: Waybop. This is my first try and I love it! :-) It's also my entry for this week's Diva challenge; take a look at her blog to see what other people did with Waybop!

Thank you for visiting my blog :-) You're comments are always read and very much appreciated!

Joey's challenge #152

Joey drew us the letter G and some Gnarly in the top left corner. Since I love that pattern, I almost filled my complete tile with it :-) Apart from the Girlande-G, that is ;-)
