Zentangle® Flux, Squid, and an Inchie

The Diva is having a bit of a rough time and the link to the challenge may not show links to others' works yet. We are all saddened that poor little Artoo is having another issue with his health. He has certainly had to go through a lot already for such a sweet little fellow. We are all going to work on Flux this week and post it on our blogs only for now.
For Square One, the tangle was Squid. I made three different partial Squids that played tangle with each other. If you add your tangles to this group, I apologize if I have not "liked" your tangle. There are so many people in the group that it's easy to miss someones. It sure is a great place to see what everyone comes up with though, almost like the Diva Challenge.
And, for Every Inchie Monday, the prompt word was Oak, which, as a spinner, I took as an OAK which stands for "One of a Kind." I spun this yarn on my Ashford Traveler spinning wheel and it is made with 80% New Zealand Merino and 20% silk. The color is Black Current. Isn't it yummy? And, nobody else has the exact same yarn, so it is definitely one of a kind!

Thanks for stopping by. I enjoy reading your comments!

Zentangle® Spirals, Mooka and Lasso the Moon

Let's play with a spiral, suggests the Diva for Challenge #210. Well, why not? Oh, at this moment I wish I were Helen Williams. Sigh. But, since I'm not, here's my version of a spiral with kind of a Btl Joos, kind of Meer and Msst.

For Facebook's Square One = Mooka to which I added Fescu, Tipple and Fengle.
And, for Every Inchie Monday, the prompt word was Lasso. Do you remember It's a Wonderful Life where George offers to lasso the moon for Mary?

Thanks for stopping by. I love reading your comment!

Happy St. Patrick's Day in Zentangle®, Some Oof, and an Inchie

The Diva Challenge #209 was to use green. You know I love a challenge and like to try to think outside of the box. Not today. The gray cells are not in motion. So, I actually did the first think I thought of, a Shamrock. I kept it simple with just Verve and Betweed. I used two different Sharpie pens in green, a Koi coloring brush pen for the surround, shading with Fabrico gray and dots with a white gel pen.

Facebook's Square One tangle of the week was Oof to which I added Jetties and Fescu.
And, for Every Inchie Monday, the prompt word was "nail". Again, keeping it simple.

Thank you for dropping by and thank you if you leave a comment. I appreciate all of you :)

Zentangle®, Cubine, Pokeroot, Bunzo and an Inchie

This week, the Diva challenged us to do a duotangle of Cubine and Pokeroot. These are basic beginner tangles but I'll bet we see some masterful adaptations from our talented group.

 Can you see the three Pokeroot tangles?

Square one, on Facebook, gave us Bunzo to work with. I really enjoyed this one. I added some Mooka.
And, over at Every Inchie Monday, the prompt was "Egyptian". The eye of Ra was passed to each Pharaoh and was thought to be all seeing and protected the King by repelling all evil!

And, just for fun, I thought I'd share some tiles that I just did for a class I taught using alcohol inks on tiles. If you are local, I would love to do this class again. We sure had fun. Check out my Workshops page above that lists the classes I can arrange for you.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I love reading all your comments!

Unbatz by Sandy Hunter, Sez and an Inchie

It's the first Monday of the month, and so the Diva Challenge was to use Unbatz, by CZT Sandy Hunter. This was a fun pattern that allows for many variations, if you're willing to look for them, as you know I always am. I added some Meer, Chartz and Tipple.

The tangle chosen for this week at Square One on Facebook was Sez that I paired with Rain.
And, finally, for Every Inchie Monday, the prompt was Love. Even I didn't want to mess with love LOL! Just a tiny quilled heart with a jeweled heart.

I appreciate all your comments and try to respond to each one. I apologize to those whose blogs I am unable to visit in return. I seem to run out of time each week. Can anyone else relate?
