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:

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 :-)

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

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 ;-)

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 ;-)

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.

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.

Golden oldies part 2

They're always nice and relaxing to do: tangles that we're there from the beginning. This time I drew Crescent Moon, Huggins, Beelight, Ennies and Hollibaugh.

Crea-cross: Flower

It's been a while since I participated in Ilse's Crea-cross challenge. This week's theme (flower) is a nice one for zentangle, so I'm glad to be back! :-)

I started with the pattern Kiku and added some improvised lines and circles.

It's a String Thing #197

This week's challenge by Adele didn't turn out the way I thought I would. Oh well, that's zentangle as well: always relaxing to do and (almost ;-) ) always surprising.

The tangles used are Tint, Bales and Antidots. 

Tuesday, 30 May 2017

Joey's challenge #167

We're tangling Joey's Alphabet challenge with special attention, because we're drawing V-tangles and Joey's last name starts with a V ;-)

She started the tile with Vano (bottom right) and I added Verve, Voga and Ving. 

Friday, 26 May 2017

Square One: Dreamdex

For Facebook's group Square One, we're focussing on Dreamdex (a new to me tangle). I needed some time to get the flow, but I quite like the pattern. 

Here you see it with Flux and Fescu, and Paradox as the odd man out ;-)

It's a String Thing #196

We're doning a Monotangle this week for AdeAdele's challenge, with a pattern that is new to me: Plingh. I had a nice time discovering this organic looking pattern.

Diva challenge #317

Laura is giving us a different kind of challenge in the way we're to glue an image onto a tile and use this as a string.

At first I thought: this is not my cup of tea ;-) but as I let the idea whirl through my head, I changed my mind :-)

Luckily there was a pretty lady in a Dutch magazine (Flow) who was standing in water and who caught my tangle attention. Nipa, Feba and Gneiss created an imaginary world around her and her reflexion. 

Thank you for visiting my blog! You know how much I appreciate your comments!

Joey's challenge #166

We're tangling U-tangles for Joey's challenge. You see Unme in the middle, Up N Down around it and Unbatz in the background.

We're up to the letter T for Joey's Alphabet Challenge and I'm filling this Tile with Tamisolo, Tour and Tipz.

Diva challenge #316

Laura asks us to create our own string using stripes. I like! :-)
In my tile, I've used 6 different tangles - twice. Each tangle is represented on each side of my tile. The patterns you see, are: Lealad, Lamar, Pia, Onomato, Scallops and Merryweather. 

Thank you for visiting my blog, I always love to read your comments :-)

Golden oldies

It's always nice to draw some 'good old' tangles, like Purk, Arukas, Pixioze and PomX2.

Tuesday, 9 May 2017

Joey's challenge #164

The S challenge of this week's Joey finish my tile starts with Sand Swirl. I added a lot of Sand and a little bit if Sevaw, which gave this result:

Diva challenge #315

Laura advises us to do a tangle study on Molygon: to spend some more time with the pattern. It's a nice tangle that I don't use very often, so I liked to get started.

It didn't turn out the way I had in my head (Molygon seems to be floating ;-) ) but I still like the way it turned out together with Yuma. 

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

It's a String Thing #193

Adele asked us to draw some of Lily Moon's tangles, to support her during these hard times she's going through. Of course I'm in - and I wish Lily all the strength she needs.

Tuesday, 2 May 2017

Claws in the middle

Claws is a pattern I love, but I don't draw it often. So here it is, in between Flux and Fife:

Crossview as a string

I drew Crossview and used it as a string. The patterns I used to fill this string are Diva Dance, Dugwud, Jemz, Fandance and Keeko.

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... ;-)

Wednesday, 26 April 2017

Lacy in the middle

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

Tuesday, 25 April 2017

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.

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 ;-)

Saturday, 22 April 2017

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 ;-)

Friday, 21 April 2017

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 :-)

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

We are up on the letter P for Joey's 'finish my tile alphabet challenge'. She started with Pea-Wea inside the letter P and I drew Pia, Prestwood, Petal Pusher and Pinwheels aroud it.

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.

Monday, 10 April 2017

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:
