DIVA Challenge 232 Duo Challenge: Audio vs. Betweed

This week over at the DIVA's weekly challenge, Holly Atwater, CZT of Ha! Designs is the guest blogger.  I had the pleasure of meeting Holly this year at TangleU in Santa Fe!  Holly has been producing some audio Zentangle meditation tapes and posting them to her blog.  She was inspired to do these from Molly Hollibaugh who leads a voice only meditation at the CZT seminars.  I was one of the earlier CZT's and didn't get to experience this (although all my students who became CZT's raved about it) until this year at the CanTangle retreat.  Molly was there and she lead us through a voice only meditation tile.  It was a wonderful experience!  When I saw that Holly had this as a challenge versus doing a tile of Betweed, there was no question about what I would do, even though I love Betweed too.  Holly, your tapes are wonderful!  I really enjoyed doing the first Bijou tile so much that I ended up doing all three.  I guess I am one of those overachievers that Holly talked about in the challenge....who would have guessed, LOL!  Thanks for the fun challenge


  1. I liked the Audio Meditations too!
    It was like having your own CZT in your living room *gg*
    Your tiles are beautiful!

  2. Hi Sue!!!

    I so enjoyed meeting YOU at Tangle U and hope to see you again at a future event! (Wasn't Tangle U AND Santa Fe AMAZING?! Looking forward to Portland next year!)

    All THREE tiles are absolutely gorgeous! Look at the shading in Nipa... Masterful... showing all the hills and valleys amongst your pearls, black pearls, and holes. The sparkles in Meer are wonderful and I love the dimension you achieved in Tripoli. Soooo lovely!

    I am so happy that you enjoyed the audios... I appreciate your kind words!

  3. Three terrific tiles Sue! I love the shading and beautiful even lines in Nipa, and your triangles in Tripoli are all so even and regularly spaced! Beautifully done!
