The Diva's Weekly Challenge #269: "New Official Tangle: Ellish"

The lawn was frosty this morning, winter is on it's way. Perhaps I should have been raking the leaves and sweeping the porch but was a great day to tangle!

Much more fun drawing sweeping lines, loving ellish!!

New Tangles

Oh the joy of two new fantastic tangles for us to explore, ellish an original tangle by Maria Thomas and skye by Margaret Bremner.

You can find curvaceous ellish in the latest Zentangle Newsletter. Love those curves.
If you haven't signed up to receive the newsletter click here.
The step-outs for Margaret's magical skye can be found by clicking here. It's becoming a really popular tangle already.

Both are a bit tricky but really worth it. Have fun!!

A bit-o-black

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #268: "A bit-o-black"

Adding drama is the way to go this week! The Gelly Roll gold pen flows really well over black, I find it easier than the white pen.

Aquafleur for Joan of Arc

If I'm home in the mornings at 11 am I love to turn the radio on and listen to 'Conversations with Richard Fidler'. It's a wonderful time to stop, listen and tangle, the people he chats to come from all walks of life and have really interesting stories to tell. Yesterday with aquafleur in my mind I had made a start and Richard's conversation was with Helen Castor who had researched Joan of Arc's fascinating story. With renaissance Zendala tile and gold pen aquafleur appeared to be more like a badge of honour than flower.

May all the brave and strong young women of the world live safely while exploring their passions.

Poke Root vs. Drupe

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #276: "DuoTangle - Poke Root vs.  Drupe"

Mmm, I really enjoy drupe and poke-root but bringing them together on one tile had me thinking. After seeing a few tiles on the Mosaic app where little spills of liquid have enhanced the tiles I decided to play.....

Lunch.......beetroot and apple juice wine

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #266: "UMT - Crux by Henrike Bratz"

Lots of concentration needed with the tangle crux, it's very effective, I thought crux added a groovy texture for my basket full of mooka.
