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?
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.
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...
