DC 182 - stripes

So, I am going to have to blog about the hands... soon, thanks for waiting and checking back for the explanation!

This weeks challenge was to incorporate stripes... it was fun to do stripes with the out reached hands, plus, the stripes (or rays) remind me of our Arizona flag. 

This tile will be used as a Tangled Little Card... I can't make enough of them!

A while back the Diva's challenge was to use a 2" x 2" tile; this is the size of Bijou's tiles.  While I think Bijou is awfully cute, the mini tiles not so!  Well, that's not really true, I like the little tiles for when I really need to burry my head, clear my thoughts, and completely block out the world!

This is the tile I did for that challenge way back when.  Working on these tiles require a fine fine fine tip pen, which I didn't use.  I also opted not to shade this for some reason.

And these are my tangles of Bijou himself!  Isn't he / she cute?!  My favorite is the one in the middle... and yours?

Water -- DC 181

Well, it certainly has been awhile since I have posted... been keeping up on challenges but not posting!  I thought it time to jump back into the thick of things!

I like this week's challenge because it lends itself to the organic aspect of Zentangle.  The challenge, specifically, was to tangle "water".  

This tangle was influenced by A Little Lime... I am addicted to Helen's work!

The piece was impossible to shade because I was working on a piece of paint sample paper and everything smeared; I even used multiple types of pens, even a sharpie!  I guess I kind of like it though because water offer makes the appearance of things blurred.

Time Away for Travels and a Visit with Aunt Debbie

It has been sooo long since I have posted a blog entry!  I have been here there and everywhere it seems in the past several months... now it is time to build simply tangling back into the daily routine!  It isn't like I haven't been tangling; addictions just don't go away that easy! 

In my recent travels I visited my Aunt Debbie in Washington; you may remember me introducing her in a previous post when she learned to tangle.  I tell you what, she sure can tangle!   And she has a style that is so her own.  She likes 4"X4" tiles (sorry, Bijou, she probably won't be hangin' with you any time soon) and the super fine Micron (.005, I think).  

I photographed her tiles in order to share them; I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.  Here is her collection of tangled tiles...

Do you have a favorite?
