DIVA Challenge #146 Pea-nuckle & Well

This week the DIVA has us doing a duo tangle challenge (using only two tangles).  The tangles are Pea-nuckle & Well.  While these are both official zentangle tangles, to be quite frank, I am not real fond of either one so putting them together.....yep, a real challenge.  So in true zentangle fashion, I drew my string and just decided to add these two tangle patterns and let it unfold before me

My Student's Art

I love it when my student's stay in touch with me after they have taken a class.  I especially love it when they share their artwork with me, and give me permission to share it on my blog.  Here are some beauties I have received recently.  Wonderful work, ladies!

DIVA challenge #145 QUIB

This week's challenge from the DIVA is to use the new official tangle, QUIB.  This is a fun, twisty line tangle, done in Hollibaugh fashion (lines drawn behind).  I just got my supply of the new tan tiles in, so I wanted to give them a try for this challenge....love them

DIVA Challenge #144 A Bug's Life

This week's challenge from the DIVA is a fun little change of pace.  CZT Samantha Taylor made this really cute video for Sakura (maker of the micron pens).  Great job, Sam!

 

Our challenge is to use this video as inspiration and in the DIVA's own words:

Use colour to bring a  Zentangle tile to life!
Camouflage a bug somewhere in the tile. (i.e. a drawing of a bug, a bug-shaped tangle pattern, etc.) Create a tile inspired by nature!
Shade your tile using some colour!

I remembered my own tangle pattern BWS (black widow spider) see the step-outs here, so I used that in the middle and then just started hiding some fun little bugs in the other spaces.  I wish I would have taken a photo prior to adding color because it was kind of hard to pick them out in black and white

Fun challenge and I am looking forward to seeing what everyone else did with this!

DIVA Challenge 143 CRUZE

This week's challenge from the DIVA is to use a new tangle by CZT, Caren Mlot.  The tangle is called Cruze and you find the steps to it here.  This tangle has such a beautiful woven look and I can't wait to play with it more.  While I was practicing it, I tried curving it, but I didn't have much luck with that.  Caren has some beautiful examples on her blog post!
