Diva Challenge #92

It's been a very busy week so I have been struggling for time to do this week's challenge from Laura. see it here. The challenge was to use stripes.

I kept this very simple and went for a diagonal stripe and used it as a sort of sampler to show many different tangles.

Groovy, Hybrid, Twisted Rope, Reticulated, Scrawlz, Meer,

Diva Challenge #91

The challenge this week from Laura at I am the Diva was to tangle using the theme beads. Laura is raising the profile of a charity called Beads of Courage. They help chronically ill children to tell their story of courage and strength as they take their medical journey by using beads to represent each medical procedure they have had.

Here is my attempt, I was not sure where to start with this one and I ended up with a tile with lots of white space. Not quite sure what I was trying to do!

Diva Challenge #89

The challenge this week from Laura at I am the Diva was to use the tangle Sankegg. This was one that I had not tried before, and like a lot of other people this week I found it quite tricky. I did not find that this tangle flowed very easily and it was a struggle to get the shapes looking symmetrical. I tried a couple of Tangleations. I like the one on the RHS however the one in the top left I think has come out too busy. I wish I had not filled in the shapes with the swirls.

A good challenge to get me out of my comfort zone, however I do not this that this tangle will go to the top of my favourite list.

Sankegg, Heartvine

Zendala Dare #25

I can't believe that we are on Dare #25 already. I feel that I only took up Zentangle a short while ago, how time flies when you are having fun doodling!

You can see this weeks challenge from Erin here.

I was doing this challenge last night while listening to the Ryder Cup on the radio. Looking forward to two years time when it comes over here to Scotland.
