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.

Tile for Square One: Purely Zentangle

Renaissance Tile with brown Micron pen and white Gelly Roll

White Zendala tile with Prismacolor pencils


  1. Your "FIFE" is beautiful :-) Gudrun S.

  2. Love your study on Fife. It absolutely did flourish. What an inspirational group of Fife.

  3. Great Fife tiles! So fun to see the differences.

  4. Ohmigosh! These are all stunning. Fife like I've never seen before;-)

  5. All of them are gorgeous! Fife is a recent discovery of mine, too, and it is such a nice tangle, weaving petals over and under. I think I like the Renaissance tile best, the colous are so beautiful! :-)

  6. Oh Shelly! The first tile is stunning!! And then the second and third appeared ... and my smile just kept getting bigger. :) I was thinking/talking about you today as I taught your Mak-rah-mee tangle to my "Zentangle IV: 3D Twists & Turns" class. I'll be sending my students a link to your blog in tomorrow's after-class email!
