Golden oldies

Especially on busy days, it’s always nice to draw some ‘golden oldies’ when it comes to tangling ;-)

Here you see Ennies, Gottago, Bales, Munchin and Ixorus:

Joey’s challenge #196

In Joey’s last challenge of 2017, we’re doing a finish my tile. There’s the word Peace in it, and we’re to use tangles that start with the letters that are in that word. I ended up using only 2 letters, for the tangles Patience and C-Wing.

Thank you Joey, for bringing so much creativity to us with all those lovely challenges :-)

I wish everybody a Merry and peaceful Christmas and all the best for 2018!

This challenge by Joey gave me so much joy! No wonder: there’s only 1 letter between Joey and joy ;-)

So, these are my first embedded letters:

Diva challenge #344

This first Monday of the month we’re tangling the pattern Afterglo for Laura’s challenge. She told us Vonnie passed away, so I put Afterglo in two hearts. Vonnie’s family is in my thoughts!

Above the hearts you see Footlights and below there’s Nzeppel.

Diva challenge #343

Laura’s asks us to try Dewd. It’s my second try, but it’s a nice tangle :-) I added Belltemps, Q-Belle and some Flux:

Square One: Zailz

We’re focussing on Zailz for Facebook’s group Square One. I added Pods and... apparently that was it :-)

Saturday, 25 November 2017

Basic patterns...

... are always nice to tangle! :-)

Here you see Yew-Dee as a string, W2, Static, Flukes and Flux:

Zentangle Lifebuoy

Imagine a tangled lifebuoy passing by - that would have a great calming result ;-)

Joey’s challenge #192

Joey drew us a tubular or log-like 3D string and likes us to use Paradox. I drew this pattern yesterday for the Diva challenge, so I wanted to do it differently. Luckily I got some great inspiration of Michele Wynne’s entry for that challenge, so thank you, Michele! I dedicate this starry night to you :-)

Next to Paradox you see Fassett and Hamail.

Diva challenge #342

Laura is challenging us to create a Duotangle with two lovely patterns: Paradox and Bunzo. I hadn’t drawn these two for some time, so I was pleased to get started. 

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

Square One: Dewd

Facebook’s group Square One asks us to focus on the new pattern Dewd. As it happens, I just finished a tile with this tangle (my first try), so here it is with Baton, Beebug and Zinger:

Joey’s challenge #191

We’re tangling a 3D version of the first letter of our name for Joey’s challenge. So, that’s a plain and simple I to me ;-)

Below Elvira, Joey’s suggestion, I put 63Y to get some contrast in my tile.

Stormy wheather

I wanted to try out the new-to-me pattern Flevo, and somehow this tile ended up like something that reminded me of stormy weather ;-)

You see Flevo combined with Rain, Shattuck and Sand Swirl.

Square One: Tipple

In the group Square One at Facebook we’re focussing on the tangle Tipple this week. A pattern one could put in almost every composition/ tile! Here I combined it with Balloya, a tangle I hardly ever draw.

Friday, 10 November 2017

Joey’s challenge #190

Joey asks us to use Metal Plating to fill her 3D string. I added Baton, Cubine and a tangle I forgot the name of... So when you know what I tangled, I’d love to hear it! :-)

It’s a String Thing #219

Adele bumped into angles, so we do too :-) The string she drew had plenty angles and we’re filling it with Vortex, Tortuca and Facets.
Just what I needed today ;-)

Wednesday, 8 November 2017

Three pretty patterns!

In this tile you can see Annee, Avreal and Bales (the last one in 4 variations):

Y-ful Power as a string

In this tile I’ve used the tangle Y-ful Power as a string and I filled it with plenty different tangles. Look at the tags of this post to see which ones ;-)

Joey’s challenge #189

Another 3D string by Joey. Shevsuggested Diva Dance, but somehow Tripoli turned up and decided to take up almost all of the attention. Funny, cause it’s a pattern I find hard to do ;-)

Diva’s challenge #339

Laura asks us to create something in a Halloween theme. So here’s my scary spider ;-))

The patterns I’ve used are Web and Cockels ‘n’ Mussels. 

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

Less is more?

Today I decided not to fill up my whole tile, but to keep it rather plain and simple ;-)
The patterns are Tessel, Ticking and Tour.

Striping with a twist

Facebook’s group Square One invites us to focus on the pattern Striping with a twist. I’m certainly I will use this pattern more often, it’s great to play with! Today I laid it down on a bed of Dyon ;-)

Pretty Patience

How nice to re-discover Patience (at the bottom). Here together with Merryweather, Lealad and Fassett.

Playing with Membranart

Today I’ve been playing with the new-to-me pattern Membranart :-)

New to me: Cruze

The knot in the middle (Cruze) is a ‘new to me’ pattern and I quite like it. In the background you see Rain, Flukes and Zinger.

Tuesday, 24 October 2017

Joey’s challenge #188

Joey drew us a 3D triangle string and asks us to fill the tile with Frunky and whatever tangle we like. I added Lacy and Orbs-la-Dee and although the result is not really 3D, I quite like it.

Monday, 23 October 2017

Diva’s challenge #338

We’re doing white on black this week for Laura’s challenge. Even though I don’t have these new white gelly roll pens, nor black tiles, I still like this change of mindset from time to time.

The patterns I stacked are Onamato, Shattuck, Kiss and some triangles. 

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

Square One: Zari

Square One at Facebook likes us to focus on Zari. So I did, under some Crescent Moonlight ;-)

Autumn garden

Somehow this one reminds me of Autumn, thanks to  Flux, Fife, ‘Nzeppel and Knightsbridge ;-)

Diva challenge #337

Artoo, Laura's son, is having his 7th birthday this week. So, we're tangling his namesake tangle :-)

I added Zander, like a garland - and drew seven little hearts (for Artoo) in the 'sky'. Happy birthday!

Joey's challenge 187

Unfortunately ;-) we're finished with drawing our 9 tiles-mosaic. Luckily Joey gives us new inspiration :-) We will be tangling 3D shaped strings. This first one has to contain Betweed - and whatever tangle we like.

As you can see I added Zonked, Diva Dance and Hollibaugh. It was fun!

Palrevo vs. Flux

We're exploring Palrevo for Facebook's group Square One:

It's a String Thing #215

We're using to newer tangles this time for Adèles challenge: Delys and Clob. I like the last one a bit better, but maybe I just have to practice Delys a bit more ;-)

Friday, 13 October 2017

Joey's challenge #186

Woohoo, we've arrived at tangling the last tile for Joey's challenge of making a mosaic of 9 tiles! On this last tile we're adding Pokeleaf and now it's all done... I'm happy and a bit sad as well ;-)

Thank you Joey, for making us create this  wonderful piece of art :-)

Joey's challenge #185

Wow, we're filling tile # 8 out of 9 for Joey's great challenge. It's so exciting to see it grow - and now it's almost finished! :-)

This week, we're adding Printemps, which you see inside 'Nzepple and close to Keeko and Nvelope.
