Diva Challenge ~ Duotangle AuraKnot and Mooka

Here is my Diva challenge tile featuring Auraknot and Mooka.  I decided to tangle a tan Renaissance tile.  This one was a challenge indeed. Like the Diva, I also have a love/hate relationship with Mooka. It boggles my mind. However, tangling all those Auraknots was very meditative and isn't that what it's all about? Keep on tangling everyone!

Diva Challenge ~ UMT

Hello Tanglers!  This week the Diva created a new tangle for the challenge.  It's a good one and you can see it and read about it here.

This week I played around with some watercolor pencils that a friend of mine dug out of her art supply stash.  I  decided instead of discarding the tile I played on, I would use it for the challenge and use the Diva's new tangle as a resting spot for the watercolor pencil "Purk" experiment.  Why not?
Happy tangling everyone, and Happy Mother's Day to all.

Diva Challenge ~ Camelia

Hello Tanglers! In response to this week's Diva Zentangle Challenge I have a couple offerings using the tangle Camelia.  If you would like to see steps to this tangle and the beautiful Zentangles created by Ann Marks, an art teacher in Victoria, Australia,  here is her blog. 

As easy as it may have been for others, this tangle was difficult for me for some reason. I really enjoyed using it on the Zendala even though I made a mistake......repeat after me: "there are no mistakes in Zentangle, there are no mistakes in Zentangle".  As a CZT I always say that in all my classes, so there you go.

I don't always show my ZT tiles to my husband, but he had some great feedback on these.  He thought the Zendala looked "flowery" and the tan tile looks like "pizza and something".  Maybe he's right! 

Happy Tangling!

Diva Challenge ~ Earth Day

Hello Tanglers and Happy Earth Day!  You guessed it, Earth Day is the theme for the Diva Challenge this week.  Or Earth Amanda Day as the Diva's son Chewie calls it.  Whatever you like to call it, it's a wonderful idea to celebrate taking care of the earth and appreciating all its beauty.  I made a couple tiles with organic-ish tangles for Earth Day.   I've been loving the more flowy curvy tangles lately and taking a break from the more grid based tangles. It's a bit of a different feeling tangling these and I like it!  Anybody else going through an organic phase?

Diva Challenge ~ Rixty

I've been having fun with wonderful tangle Rixty ever since it was first introduced so here are some  of the tiles I've made.  Some scanned a bit crooked, some shaded, some not.  Most of all I love Rixty because there is no end to what you can do with it and I feel like I've just scratched the surface so far.  In any case, here are my Rixty tiles, one through five.  And here is the link to the Diva Challenge so you can take a look at all the incredible Rixty entries.  It is also extra special that Maria created this tangle to honor her awesome partner and Zentangle co-founder, Rick.

Diva Challenge ~ Initially yours

Hello Tanglers!  Yay, the Diva chose an relatively easy challenge for this week.  You can see the Diva Challenge here  .  The challenge is to use your initials as your string.  My initials are KW and I did remember to snap a picture of the tile while it just had the string on it:
And, here is my tile after I tangled it while sitting outside on a lovely spring afternoon.  This was one of those tiles where you say, am I done yet?  I didn't really have a plan when I started, but I expected that I would tangle away until you couldn't easily tell that the string was my initials. But, I decided, along with some help from my tangling companion, that it was just done, simple as that.
Happy Tangling everyone and enjoy your own Zentangle journey~

I am happily participating in the Zentangle community effort to encourage this TV show to do a feature on Zentangle.  Today, April 1st, (no foolin'!) I will send in my envelope and the Zentangle card I made from a Zendala.  I can only imagine how much fun it will be for the person who sorts the mail at CBS to receive all the Zentangle goodness coming their way!
