The Diva's Weekly Challenge #285: "Relax, bro."

The Diva asks us to tangle like no-one is watching, relax, no plans. I had actually just finished fife for our Facebook group Square One: Purely Zentangle, felt relaxed and with thoughts of just playing with more fife. The house was quiet so I could hear the magpies out in the garden and with spring sunshine beaming through my window fife grew and grew, blossomed and flourished.

Purky Purk

A couple of weeks ago I enjoyed 2 days in Hobart at the Annual Rotary Art Show demonstrating Zentangle. I chose purk to feature on each tile and just see where they ended up and to show the easiness of a nice loopy string.
Here are five of my favourite tiles from the weekend.

purk with crazy huggins
purk and drupe

purk with twing, printemps and crescent moon

purk, twing,marasu, mooka and quabog

The Diva's   Weekly Challenge #284: "Monotangle to Tripoli"

Tripoli is one of my favourite tangles and I wanted to experiment with stripes but to get all the stripes to fit in and stay vertical in the triangle just doesn't work but I like the way parts float off and then merge back together. 

Once my monotangle was finished I decided to add some betweed and turn it into a duotangle.
