DIVA Challenge #173 Redux, Remix, Revisit your comfort tangle

This week's DIVA challenge is brought to us by CZT, Sharla Hicks.  Laura Harms is having a grand time at the 15th CZT seminar, lucky girl!  Some day I'd love to go back to another seminar, but for now I will dream about it!  On to the challenge.....my take on this was to take one or two of your comfort tangles and do something different with them.  I have so many comfort tangles, I wasn't sure which to use, so I picked Cadent and Printemps.  I decided to really mix it up and try lots of new things!  First, I used a tan tile with a red Micron 01 pen. Second, I didn't use a string  (really rare for me) and I just started doing Cadent in kind of a spiral, while making my dots different widths apart. Then I added some stripes and lines in each one. When it was time to add Printemps, the only thing I could think of to make them different was to "bigify" them.  Third, was to add watercolor pencil in red and orange and then use a water brush to spread out the color.  I got so into playing with the color, I almost forgot I started on a tan tile!  I have only used the sepia, black, and white on the tan tiles until this challenge.  While it's not one of my favorite tiles, I am posting it anyway because I enjoyed the challenge.  It got me to try new things and look at different ways of doing your comfort tangles.  Thanks, Sharla!
