Diva-Challenge # 185

This challenge from The Diva made me really happy. I like the autumn and the coloured leaves :-) There were no directions which patterns we have to use, and I chose patterns which start with the letters F, A, L and L (for fall indeed ;-). These are the patterns:

- Finery by Zentangle
- Afterglo by Carole Ohl
- LG by Adele Bruno
- Lacy by Sandtra Strait

I also made a picture before shading:

It's interesting so see how different the tiles are before and after shading :-)

Have a great time and tangle on!

String Thing # 59

This week Adele Bruno from "It's a String Thing" suggested us to use a string created by Adele herself in honour to the pattern "Oke" by Michele Beauch. Beside this pattern we also had to use "Meringue" by Kelley Kelly, and this is what I tangled with them:

Meringue was really challenging to me, I like squared and straight patterns more, but I will use it once more with no outlines, just to check if that was the hitch with it.

Have great time tangling!

Joey's challenge # 27: Cayke

Here's my Tangle for Joey's challenge #27. We had to use the String #012 and the pattern "Cayke" by Rose Brown. Here's the list of the patterns I used:
- Bublz by Lori Byerly
- Cayke by Rose Brown
- Mooka by Zentangle
- Ruf-l by Millie Galliher
- Trivolution by Sandra Chatelain
- Zenplosion by Danni O'Brien

I really had no plan how to fill this string and which patterns I want to use, I just started with Cayke and tangled on. I also can't decide which direction my tile should have, this one or perhaps another perspective? It's not important, I like it anyway ;-)

Tangle on!

Tackle It Tuesday: New Series, S E P tember

The Artful Creations-Blog starts a new serie with "Tackle It Tuesday". This time we had to use patterns that start with S, E and/or P. I chose the following patterns:

- Shauna by Kathy Barringer
- Efeu by rhapsody
- Prestwood by Margaret Bremner

At first I tried to tangle Shauna behind Efeu, but than Efeu wasn't visible any longer and I tried some color. I wasn't very satisfied with this tile, so I drew the second one you can see  on the top of this post. This tile makes me more happy :-)

This is the first tile which is a bit unpicturesque in my opinion:

Tangle on!

Square One: Dex

This is my tile for this weeks' challenge from Square One on Facebook. We had to use the pattern "Dex" by Zentangle and I combined it with "Yuma" by Tina-Akua Hunziker. Both patterns were new to me and I enjoyed tangling around with them :-)

Have a great week and tangle on!

String Thing # 58

"It's a String Thing #58" ordered to use String 058 and the following patterns:

Gingham by Margaret Bremner, CZT
Girdy by Karl Stewart
Gothic by Mariet Lustenhouwer
Girlande by Simone Bischoff

I knew Gingham and Gothic before, but Girdy and Girlande were new to me, and so I concentrated to these two patterns. At first I drew Girlande, but when I added Girdy the Girlande got almost unvisible, so I colored it.

Now I can't decide which picture I like more, with or without color:

I enjoyed to discover these new patterns, so thank you Adele for this nice challenge! :-)

Tangle on!

Diva-challenge # 185

The Diva-challenge of this week asks us to do a Duo Tangle with Phicops and Diva-Dance. Both patterns are new to me and I enjoyed to tangle around with them. At first I found it too empty, so I added here and there some pieces until it was full :-)

Tangle on!

Tackle It Tuesday: Z

Yeah, I know, I'm late for this great "TACKLE IT TUESDAY"-challenge on the "Artful Creations"-blog, but I wanted to show it anyway.

I used the following patterns:
Zanholli by Molossus,
Zenplosion Folds by Danni O'Brien,
Zonked by Barbara Finwall.
Zuan Shi by JJ La Barbera,

and the String #024. I fell in love with the Zenplosion Foldss and Zuan Shi, they are so recreative :-)

Have a nice week!

Joey's challenge # 26 Oke

This weeks' challenge at "made by Joey" was to use the patern "Oke" by Michele Beauch and an acorn shaped string. I also used the patterns "Organza" by Ruth Howell, "Navaho" by Karen Mlot and "Btl Joos" by Sandy B. The Oke needed to be highlighted, so I added some green to it.

I'm not very happy with this tile, but I learned some new (to me) patterns, and that's fine :-)

Tangle on!

The first day you can find here.

Have a nice sunday,

Joey's challenge # 25 Leaflet

This week Joey's challenge was to use the pattern "Leaflet" by Helen Williams. My first thought about Leaflet was something organic and I started with a kind of hedge with some "flowers" are growing from it. Thank you Joey for this challenge, I'm always learning from them :-)

Keep on tangling!

String Thing # 57

Tuesday is "String Thing"-day, and this time we used the string #056 with the patterns

Drip Drop by CZT Debbie Perdue
Dekore by Kari Shultz
Dust Bunny by CZT Margaret Bremner
Drupe by Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts

This weird string made me going crazy to copy it to my tile, but while tangling I got more and more pleasant with it. Thank you Adele Bruno for this great challenge!

Keep on tangling!

Diva-challenge # 184

This weeks' challenge from The Diva was to tangle around with the new pattern "ING" from Molly Hollybough. It was my first tangelation with this pattern and I like how different the strings came out.

Have fun and tangle on!

Square one: Quib

This is my first trial with Quib for the weekly challenge of the Facebook-group "Square one". I'm not so happy with the auraknot (I know I can draw it better), but hey, I had fun and zen while tangling it, so it's ok however it looks at the end :D

Happy tangling,

Tagh by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas
Telis by Chrissie Frampton
Ticking by JJ La Barbera
Trivet by CZT Nancy Newlin
Twile by Lesley Scott-Gillilan

It was really funny to fill this string!

Have a great time and tangle on,

Junior staff development ;-)

Today I had a great day at my parents' home with my family. We had a lot of fun together and my sister and her kids were nosy about my Zentangle-stuff I brought with me. My 5yo nephew Jonas wanted to do such a whimsical picture and drew some curls and loops in the middle of the tile (the blue lines in the center). I added some lines in black and while he was playing with his sister I tangled around and colored some parts. He loved it and was proud he has created something special with his aunt. He glued it hisself on a new page of my Zentangle-journal and aglowed with happiness. What a special and joyful day ♥

Have a nice weekend and tangle on!

Diva challenge # 183

IT's the first monday of the month, so it's UMT-time at the Diva's weekly challenge what means, we use a tangle-pattern from a normal user. This month it's the pattern "X-Did" by Annette Carlo.

It was difficult for me to make this tile ecause I didn't know what to do with this pattern. So I just started and tangled around and this is what appears :-)

(Does anybody know what the green thingy is representing? Yes, I know, I'm a nerd ;-)

Have a great time and tangle on!

Joey's challenge # 24

There's another great weekly challenge on the wonderful blog "madebyjoey" and this week we had to tangle something with five overlapping circles. This is my contribution to the challenge. I used the patterns
- Hollibaugh from Zentangle
- Rosewood from Sandra Strait
- Paradox from Zentangle and
- Crescent moon from Zentangle
- Zinger from Zentangle

In the upper right circle I used the Gallifreyan font. Yeah, I can't hide it, I'm a "Whovian", and since I started with tangling I wanted to try something in that font. It  means "Joya tangles" :-)

Have a nice time and tangle on!
