Joey’s challenge #200

Congratulations with 200 wonderful challenges, Joey!

About two weeks ago, my husband ended up in hospital unexpectately :-( He’s still there, getting better a bit every day. We’ve had two heavy weeks in which there really was no time for tangling. 

So, I’m glad today I could pick up my pens to create an entry for Joey’s 200th! She chose string #165 for us and the pattern Exeter. You see that one in the middle and Chillon and Crux around it. Glad to be back :-)

Zenuari day 14: Blossoming tangle

Anoeska likes us to use a blossoming tangle in our tile. I chose Trelina and added Pufcookie.

Zenuari day 13: Own fragment

Anoeska likes us to create a fragment of our own and draw it in a reticulum. I still don’t have the proper fragment and reticula-feeling, so this is what came up:

Zenuari day 12: Overlap

Overlapping tangles is today’s theme. I used Flukes and Leeter to overlap and added some good old Flux ;-)

Zenuari day 11: Organic and straight

Today we’re drawing a tile in which we combine organic and straight tangles. I drew Pais, Tipple, Inapod and Jemz:

Joey’s challenge #198

Joey chose string #206 for us and likes us to add Ta-Da and whatever else want. Mine ended up with Kochlea and Zinger as additional tangles.

Zenuari day 9: Stained Glass

Today’s prompt is from Susan Reading. She likes us to create stained glass pieces and add a little zentangle to the mix.

For the ‘leading’ I got inspired by a window of the Notre Dame in Paris. Inside, you’ll see a lot of tangles (for their names see the tags of this post). The colors are added with colorpencils.

Zenuari day 8: Reticula and fragments

I gave it another chance ;-) but I’m still no fan of reticula and fragments. Maybe it doesn’t help that I don’t have the Primer 1 book with the theory.
Anyway ;-) Here you see A3 and E4.

Zenuari day 7: Size DOES matter

Today we’re tangling with Microns with different min sizes. I’ve used a Micron 08, 01 and 003. The last one is a very thin nib, a souvenir I bought for myself in Japan last Summer. I love it for its thinness!

The tangles you see are Ping, CC and Cockels ‘N Mussels - and some other I don’t know the name of.

Zenuari day 6: Blind string

Anoeska asks us to draw a string with our eyes shut and the fill the sections with patterns. Like she predicted, there were a lot of little sections, which I didn’t fill up all. The tangles you see, are Drip drop, Crux, Fe-Ba, Ennies and Tipple.

Zenuari day 5: Colorful background

My ‘signature’ in zentangle is that I create black and white things. So when I see a prompt that involves color, I tend to hesitate at first. Luckily ;-) I also want to send in an entry, so I start and... I love whatI see appear :-)

Zenuari day 4: Forgotten tangle

No, I did not forget about Drupe, but I don’t draw it very often anymore. Nice to rediscover it - and add some Flux.

Zenuari day 3: Weighted lines

We’re creating weighted lines to add contrast and interest. Nice prompt! The tangles I’ve used are Bales, Flux, Fassett, Chillon and Shattuck.

Joey’s challenge #197

Joey drew us a shape. We’re to tangle inside the shape on one side and outside the shape on the other side of the line.

The result, with Tipple and Bloom, looks a bit pale to me ;-) but I like the idea.

Zenuari day 2: Auld lang syne

Day 2 has a prompt by Franciose Lip. She asks us to look back through our collection of tiles, perhaps to our first tile of 2017. Then we are challenged to make it again, but do it completely different. 

My first tile of 2017 also was for Zenuari, so I... turned it around, in some kind of way ;-)

I wish you all a very happy and tangly 2018!

Zenuari 2018 day 1: Festive

Yeah, Anoeska is organising another Zenuari :-) Thank you!

Day 1 has a ‘festive’ theme, to look back at the last month. Anoeska suggests that we could use a golden gelly roll. I don’t have one, but I’ve also celebrated a lot of birthdays in December, so I decided to go for balloons ;-)
