No Strings Attached

This is a super name for The Diva's Challenge this week. Just start a tile without drawing a string. With both these I went straight to the corner first.

Living Green

A bonus to the Art of Zentangle is recycling tangles. Each tangle has a unique way of looking  revitalised and re-vamped. I never get tired of re-using verdigogh, purk or poke leaf.
The repetition of tripoli and mooka sends me off on a whirl of memories gathered from tiles past. Add a little zinger with old favourites and a few shades of green for an environmental friendly ZIA.

Size: 2 cm x 37cm (10 1/2" x 14 1/2")

The Diva's challenge #96 is a real zinger and I am so pleased we now have a name for this cute as a poppet official tangle. Zinger sprouts up with joy and appears often in Maria's Zentangles.
Zingers are like sweets it is hard to stop at just one.

Thank you Maria and Laura.

Yay Mickey

What a hoot! The Diva's challenge #95 is kindly brought to us by Courtney from Texas who reminds us of Mickey Mouse's debut way back on the 18th of November 1928 in the animated short film "Steamboat Willie".
It really is a classic and such a giggle, you can view the film on The Diva's blog here .            
During the week I have been playing with Carla's Pop-Cloud and hoping I could in some way incorporate this delightful tangle in this weeks challenge. When Steamboat Willie's whistles blew clouds of steam puffed with inspiration!
Thanks Courtney and Carla it was a blast from the past with a toot and a hoot!!

A Fishy Tail or Tale!

Once upon a time deep under the sea lived a fine finicky fish with a tangled tail. This fussy fish frolicked in the wispy waves, swam amongst the fangles and florz looking for sweet juicy squid!

Can you add a line or two to this fishy tale?

Size: 37cm x 55 cm (14 1/2" x 21 1/2")

For this weeks challenge (#94) from The Diva we are delving into the lovely lines of Erin's socc.
You can make this delightful tangle pull in tight and plump it out into a voluptuous roundish shape or pinch the ends for a bulb like effect.
Fun fun fun ...thanks Laura and Erin.

A Bunzo Wave

Challenge #93 is Zentangle official and very groovy tangle bunzo. Let's dance or ride the wave!!
We are enjoying spring rains here in Tasmania and I am thinking of you all on the east coast of the US with wild weather, strong winds and high seas.
Thanks Maria for another cracker of a tangle.

For Alice.
