DIVA Challenge 297 Holiday Bash

This is the last DIVA challenge of the year and we got to revisit the last 5 years end of the year challenges.  Laura also reminded us that her very 1st challenge was in Dec 2010 (6 years ago).  I was a part of that 1st challenge, and I can hardly believe this, but every single challenge since.  I must say it was fun to go back and look at each of the last 6 years challenges and see all the old names and a lot of names that are still doing the challenge nowThanks so much, Laura for all the fun you have given to us for the last 6 years!

I choose to do the challenge from last year, Dec 2015, "Give the Gift of Zentangle".  Every year I like to give my two daughters a Christmas ornament.  Some have been homemade and some store bought.  I love putting ornaments on my tree each year, and especially love the ones I was given as gifts because they will always be special to me

This year at a CZT reunion, Maria Thomas showed us how to make her gilded hearts.  So I used that technique to add to gold gilded hearts to Bijou tiles.  I then tangled the new tangle, Drawings on each of them.  I have always loved angels and I am really enjoying this tangle!  I then framed them in small frames I found at Michael's, which are perfect for the Bijou tiles
