Back to the challenge, which is to tangle from something moving. (car, train, subway, bus, etc.)
On our RV travel trip we went 5120 miles, and believe it or not, I never tangled. I thought it may make me car sick, and I didn't want to miss all the new scenery. So I went out on my patio and tangled in my glider, while keeping it in constant motion. I found it was very hard to put any pressure on the pen and the lines are wobbly and scratchy looking. I wanted to try and fix it when I stopped, but I embraced the suck, and now I am sharing it. I liked this challenge about as much as I like the non-dominant hand challenge-NOT! LOL!

I am so late on this challenge due to traveling across this great country of ours. We have been on our 1st really long RV trip, and hope to be home tomorrow after 30 days on the road. I will have to do a blog post soon with the highlights of our trip.....it's been a blast!
So, for the challenge, since I am very tired, I decided to do the tangle Splinters as a firework, with Printemps around the outside. I also used a clear glitter pen to put Printemps all over Splinters, after the watercolor dried. The picture doesn't do it justice, as it's a very sparkly tile. The 4th of July fireworks are a tradition here in the USA, celebrating our independence. This is the first year I have missed them in awhile.
I hope all of you are having a wonderful summer!

Beads of Courage
This weeks' challenge is one I have done in the past, but always enjoy because it brings awareness to a very important arts in medicine program that helps kids with chronic or life threatening illness tell the story of their medical journey. You can read all about in on the Divas blog at www.iamthedivaczt.blogspot.com. Laura helps raise money for this program each year with a really fun looking 5K race, and also has us do a beads of courage challenge.
I decided to use the ZenGems as my beads (because I wanted to practice them some more) and added a very simple headline as the necklace string. (Oh yes, and a little "A" for Artoo). Love that little guy!
Have a wonderful week everyone!

Our challenge this week from the DIVA is to try out the tangle, Skye, by Margaret Bremner. I knew I wanted to try this tangle when I saw Margaret's tiles and step-outs on her blog, so I was happy it was the challenge this week. It has a bit of a learning curve, but I thought it got easier each time I tried it. I will be playing with this tangle more in the future!

The DIVA has asked us to add some black in places we normally wouldn't. I added stripes in Paradox, Beelight, and Avreal, and some rounding around Poke Root, and Flux.
Better late then never with my tile!
