Joey's challenge #177

A few days ago I came back home from a lovely holiday to Japan, so I was pleased to see that guest blogger Susan Theron drew us a J - string ;-) Of course I also love to thank Joey for all her challenges!

I filled it with Joki, Voga, Orange peel, Vortex and Jonqual - all tangles starting with J/ V/ O.

Diva challenge #328

I'm back from a lovely holiday in Japan. Such a beautiful country with lovely people!

Now I'm back home in the cold and wet Netherlands (despite Summer), so I'm happy to participate in the Diva's challenge again. Suzanne Fluhr is this week's guest blogger and she likes us to use Aloha. A great pattern! I added some Diva Dance and black pearls. 

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

Arukas Monotangle

This tile was purely meant to relax - I needed it and it worked :-)

Sand Swirl setting

Sand Swirl is a pattern I love, but it's also quite a difficult one to me because of all these parallel curved lines. I like the result though!

Sundoo as a string

Sundoo: a happy tangle! I used it as a string and filled it with Tagh, Hollibaugh, Papermint, Crescent Moon and Static.

Stacking tangles

Stacking tangles is nice to do from time to time! From left to right you see Prestwood, Onomato, Shattuck, Ping and Pixioze.

Cadent in a circle

Cadent is the heart of this circle. Around it you see Printemps, Scallops and... I forgot ;-)

Annee Crossing

Here you can see an Annee-crossroad, flying over Yincut, Juke and Bales :-)

Wednesday, 2 August 2017


I tried a Prestwood Monotangle, not sure if it's nice to look at, but it was fun to do!

Zander and friends

It's quite a long time ago I did Zander, so here it is again ;-) Together with Flux, Flukes and Ennies.

Monday, 31 July 2017

New to me: Paisley Boa

This time I'm discovering the pattern Paisley Boa. I don't think it wil be a favorite one for me, because the lines don't 'flow' easily. I like the result together with Footlites though!

Zenith Hill

Zenith is a pattern I don't use often enough. Here you see it above and below N'Zeppel. At the bottom I drew some Shattuck.

Arukas zentangle heart

Arukas is always a nice tangle to draw, so this time I started it with a heart :-)

Tuesday, 25 July 2017

Marasu is a pattern I always love to draw. Here I combined it with Molygon, Shattuck and Fife.

Diva challenge #325

Jessica is back for part 2 of her guest post at Laura's blog. She likes us to create a tile with Peanuckle in it. Oops, not my favorite, so I've only drew it once before (I think). After finishing this tile, my opinion is still the same ;-)) A proper challenge I would say :-)

Thank you for visiting my blog! Your comments always brighten my day :-)

Joey's challenge #174

Another guest blogger at Joey's blog: Susie Ng. She makes us tangle Asian Fans. I added Borbz, Bud and Dyon.
Thank you Susie!

Some golden oldies

Some patterns will always be nice to tangle. I can't fit them all in one tile, but these five are among my favorites: Jemz, Tripoli, CO2, Ixorus and Jonqual.

Square One: Fluxecho

We're focussing on Fluxecho in Facebook's group Square One. I added 1 Blossom #03 and that was it :-)

It's a String Thing #203

Adele makes us tangle 'something old' (SeZ) and 'something new' Trilad. SeZ is not a favorite tangle of mine and Trilad is new to me, so I decided to keep it simple ;-)

Joey's challenge #173

How nice to participate in a guest challenge by Michele, thank you for introducing me to the Rope String! I like this kind of thing and filled it with Keeko, Verve, Shattuck, Buttercup, Swarm and Up N Down.

Diva challenge #324

Jessica is this Summer's first guest blogger at The Diva's blog. Thank you for your challenge, Jessica!

As you might know, normally I don't 'recycle' any of my tiles to participate in a challenge. But Jessica asks for a 'Tangled Heart' and I only drew this one a couple of days ago and called it 'Zentangle love'. It just fits perfectly in this challenge, so I'm gonna make this Baton monotangle my entry :-)

Thank you for visiting my blog! You comments brighten my day :-)

It's a String Thing #202

We're celebrating Independence Day at Adele's challenge with Pop-Cloud, Xplode and CO2:

Joey's challenge #172

Haha, that's funny: participating in my own (guest) challenge at Joey's blog :-)

I decided to make an Auraknot of my star string and added some Flux and Tipple:

Diva challenge #323

A difficult challenge by Laura this week: create a tile that reflects your home. I can think of a million ideas reflecting my country - the Netherlands. The people around me make me feel at home, but I rather tangle a typical Dutch setting: a windmill and some tulips ;-)

Thank you for visiting my blog! I always love your comments :-)

Tangling makes me feel zen

Borbz, Dyon, Crescent Moon and a tangle I forgot the name of (top right) made me feel zen today :-)

Square One: Camreap

We're focussing on Camreap for Facebook's group Square One. At first I didn't know what to do with this tangle, so I just started drawing some lines. Some time later this appeared on paper, a nice surprise I think :-)

Crea-Cross #26

Crea-Cross is a nice and different kind of challenge, since it welcomes all kind if creative art around a weekly theme. Not all theme's are zentangle-proof, but this week Ilse (another one, yes ;-) ) likes us to create something with 'Dots' involved.

The patterns I chose are Tipple, Drupe, Balloya, Fishnet and Barberpole. Plenty of dots involved, don't you think? ;-)

It's a String Thing #201

Luckily Adele is continuing her challenge after reaching #200 last week ;-). So this week she drew us a channel line grid and likes us to fill it with Beebug, HekZee and Leaflet. You can see my entry here:

Joey's challenge #171

Joey guided us all the way through the zentangle alpabet, arriving at the last letter Z. Zuper, Joey! ;-)

She started with Zonked and I added Zewm and Zinger.

Diva challenge #322

Laura likes us to draw Aquafleur. Nice! Because I've recently been busy with Aquafleur, I wanted to do it differently. So here you look at Aquafleur through a magnifying glass :-)

Thanks for visiting my blog! Your comments always cheer up my day :-)

Sunday, 25 June 2017

New to me: Ameliachele

The pattern Ameliachele ('Amelia-Shell') is new to me, so I tangled 3 of them on my tile to practice ;-)

Friday, 23 June 2017

Square One: Flez

This week, we're focussing on the pattern Flez at Facebook's group Square One.

You see it flow around Keeko and on the outside there are Leaflet and Crescent Moon:

It's a String Thing #200

Wow, we've reached challenge number 200 at Adele's blog! Thank you so much Adele, for your continuing enthousiasm to make us tangle :-)

Here's my entry for this week, with the new tangle C-Perf. You look at a Monotangle, because this pattern has a lot of possibilities.

Zentangle trinity

Tagh, Crescent Moon and Purk together are my zentangle trinity in this tile. They're lying on a bed of Marbaix ;-)

Monday, 19 June 2017

Joey's challenge #170

We're tangling Y-tangles for this week's challenge by Joey. She started with Yuma, which I love, and I just added Yew-Dee. Only two patterns, but it looks like a busy zentangle 'yungle' to me :-)

Sunday, 18 June 2017

Square One: Strutz

Facebook's group Square One likes us to focus on Strutz. I put it on a Tessel Hill ;-)

Thursday, 15 June 2017

Joey's challenge #169

We're tangling X-tangles for Joey's Finish my tile Alphabet challenge. Joey started with Xs and Orbs in the letter X. I put 4 x-patterns to it: Xav, Xyp, Xplode and Xplo-zen.

Diva challenge #320

It's the first Monday of the month, so it's time for a Use My Tangle (UMT) at Laura's blog. This time we're doing Dansk and I drew it around a heart of 'Dillo. I'm not sure if this was the right choice for pattern combination, but I like the result anyway ;-)

Thank you for visiting my blog! Your comments always brighten my day :-)

Square One: Showgirl

We're focussing in the tangle Showgirl at Facebook's group Square One. I quite like this pattern and put it on a bed of N'Zeppel.

Friday, 9 June 2017

It's a String Thing #198

We're sending another wave of love and support to Lily by drawing the pattern Agni, which is dedicated to her daughter who passed away recently. A lovely suggestion by Adele!

You can see Agni here top left an bottom right together with Tira and Knightsbridge.

Diva challenge #319 & Crea-cross

Laura likes us to be inspired by whatever gives us Courage. I thought about the sun quite quickly: he (or she? ;-) ) is a great symbol to me for courage and hope. He makes me happy, makes me feel good and he shows me that, no matter how dark clouds can be, in the end there's always the sun to brighten up our days :-)

This tile perfectly fits in the Crea-cross 'Summer' challenge of my Belgian 'colleague' Ilse, so I'll post it there as well ;-)

Thank you for visiting my blog ánd brightening my day in your own way with your comments :-)

Joey's challenge 168

We've already reached the letter W at Joey's challenge, time flies when you're having fun ;-)

Joey started this tile with W2 at the bottom. Above it, I drew Warped Eggs, Windmill and Widgets.
