The Diva's Weekly Challenge #224: "Monotangle: Tipple"

Tipple tints on tan!
Recently I ordered a kit from Marty Deckel called "Tints on Tan, Seaside Edition".  Wow wow wow! I am working slowly to learn these beaut effects and tipple was a fun way to get the feel of the colour pencils using light layers and shading. I am really looking forward to more practice and play making our tangles pop!!

Keeko in the Centre of Attention

There is a theme happening here. Keeko is a super tangle for 'getting in the zone' it's relaxing to draw the lines 1 2 3 4 across 1 2 3 4 down with a small bend or curve and imagine the weaving in and out. I like to round the ends and pull out the threads. That is how mak-rah-mee  evolved. You can add many tangles working with these threads.
Oh it's all so much fun!!

I Spy

I spy with my little eye! What do you see?

Here is my larger piece on an Opus tile which was inspired by The Diva's 'Beads of Courage' challenge this week. A seed of an idea was there but I just didn't know how it would grow.
I love that element of surprise with Zentangle art, when out of the blue something fun turns up!

Beads of Courage

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #221: "Beads of Courage" 

Over the years Laura's challenges have become inspirational seeds of thoughts and ideas for larger Zentangle art pieces. This was fun and I think I'll expand this theme onto an Opus tile and see what happens.

All Boxed Up

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #220: "UMT: All Boxed UP by Alice Hendon, CZT"

Oh la la Alice's all boxed up jumped out of the square and went round like a donut. Then bordered a square on a round tile.

Thanks Alice, your tangle is really effective.
