Zentangle® on a Beautiful Amanda Day

Happy Amanda Day! Do go read about it over at I am the Diva! For my Earth Day project, I thought I should make complete use of a tile and do the back as well. The red square logo prompted me to use a red gel pen and continue the squares, overlapping them. Then, I added Sez, Rain, and Tipple. I used a bit of rainbow colored pencils as well.
The focus tangle for Square One, Facebook, is to use CZT Beate Winkler's Funbee. I thought it went well with Mooka and a bit of Beadline.
This week, I am sharing a journal page where I explored a bit of Tipple and Rixty. Tipple was one of those tangle that I just didn't like until I ignored the step-outs. I have loved it ever since.
Thanks for stopping by. I do love reading your comments!

Zentangle®, Ropuz Fill, 5C Drop, Romancy, and Weben

Such a fun challenge from I am the Diva this week! We are to use something liquid spilled as a string. I had to get out my Distress Inks and play with two tiles.
The first, I let plain water drip down the tile and then held watered Distress Inks over it with a water brush. Color flowed. While wet, I changed directions and added a darker color. Then, I added some wet red. The second one was used to pick up the "slops" of leftover wet inks.
I selected the first tile to work with this time, and I had a lot of fun working with two tangles from Ina Sonnenmoser: Ropuz Fill and 5C Drop. A tiny bit of Betweed, Tipple and a minimal amount of shading finished this tile.

The focus tangle for Square One on Facebook is to use Ida Lowenherz' Weben (this is on Flickr, so you might not be able to access it if you don't have an account).
And for another splash of color, a bit of Romancy, done with Copics.
Thanks for stopping by. I do love reading your comments!

Zentangle® Paradox, Puffin and Joki

This week, over at I am the Diva, we were challenged to use "Circle Square String Theory". Fun. I'm certain that I will not be the only one to immediately think of this.
Like looking in a mirror, the circles and squares just repeat until I couldn't anymore. A curved version of Paradox filled in the corners created. I used a Renaissance tile, Stabilo CarbOthello in sepia, and a white colored pencil.

The focus tangle on Square One, Facebook, is Joki by Kim Aarts-Bruins. Certainly one worth knowing.
And, for your "wake-up" dash of color:
I used my own tangle, Puffin, and Copic markers, I created a tangled card.

Thanks for stopping by. I do enjoy appreciate that you took the time to stop by and leave a comment!

Zentangle® Frunky and Y-ful Power

This week, being the first Monday of the month, is a UMT (Use My Tangle) week over at I am the Diva. This one comes from Katharina K├Ânigsbauer-Kolb and is called Frunky. She offered several variations and so I used one of hers and added my own as well.
The focus tangle on Square One on Facebook is to use Y-Ful Power by Shoshi.
I kept this one simple, mostly because I couldn't think of anything unusual to do with it.

And, for this week's burst of color, I tried Y-Ful using my Copic markers with a bit of white gel pen highlighting.


As usual, I want to thank all of you who faithfully leave me comments. They truly make me smile!
