Diva Challenge #113 Hip to be Square

This week's challenge from the DIVA is to use squares as our strings.  Start with one square, add another, more if you wish.  Easy string idea, but lots of fun to do


On my next one, I started with Bunzo (in sepia) around my first square, then had visions of painting a mountain scene with watercolors on the inside.  After the delusion of being a watercolor artist left (have never painted anything in watercolor, let alone a scene) I thought I could do a little zentangle garden. So I used watercolor to paint the background and used a sepia pen to make my garden.  I highlighted it with a white charcoal pencil and I added circles with a white gel pen.  (Not sure I like the circles yet)  


If you haven't seen some of the beautiful zentangle frames that Maria Thomas has made, make sure to check out these to links....a-frame-of-mine-d and  bordering-on-reverie.  These posts are not the first time Maria has shared her beautiful zentangle frames.  If you search back through the zentangle blog you will find more.

  2. Bunzo makes an awesome frame. I really like the color in the center, it shows the center off as well as the frame.

  3. Sue, both are wonderful. I'm especially drawn to your first, so graphic. The circles on the second are a thumbs up, they add a great layer and texture to your tile!

  4. Oh Sue, I got such a laugh out of your description of your "delusion". Hee Hee. I* also love both the tiles, especially the Hollibaugh-esque mooka in the first one. Your shading of the border in the second one is really cool.

  10. I laughed at your description of being a delusional watercolor artist - I can identify! Your tiles are both beautiful - The first so intricate and beautifully layered; the second so organic. Love the shine in bunzo and the beautiful red. I think the circles add a luminous quality.

  11. I must say I love these two tiles... I will not choose a favorite because they are both outstanding and different than each other! Love the contrast of white and black in the first one...the shapes become so tangible! The second is very sweet!

  14. I love the "meandering mooka" in the first one and if I try real hard I can just see a mountain scene in the background of the second one...a red sunset which has turned the snowy mountains a beautiful pink.
