Zentangle® Dansk, Verve, Showgirl, and Dew Drops

I was so pleased to see CZT Margaret Bremner's Dansk pop up on I am the Diva for this week's challenge. I immediately thought of Verve for the centers and built up from there. Of course, I had to criss-cross rather than go under each one. I used a die cut from Stampin Up to create the shape for filling.
I used Polychromos colored pencils for the darker blues and a pastel pencil for shading.

Square One, Facebook, has a focus tangle of Showgirl by Vicki Bassett to which I added Quib.

And, feeling like doing a couple of dew drops, I grabbed a 3Z tile and did some very simple tangles so I could put my focus on the dew drops.
Thanks for stopping by. I do enjoy your comments.

    1. Thank you, Carmela. I enjoyed using Showgirl. It was one of those pretty tangles that I had forgotten about.

  2. I love all three of your tiles, but the middle one, using Showgirl as bunches of flowers with a Quib hanging basket? Wowzers!! Absolutely stunning, and quite frankly, I am going to try to copy it, lol.

  5. Great Diva tile Jean. I love that shape you used for drawing Dansk and using Verve in the "eye" was a great idea. I like the criss-crossing of the lines too. That worked out really well. I like how you used Quib with Showgirl - it is so pretty. And the Dew Drop is great. It really sets off the whole tile. I love the idea, but it is a hard one for me. I guess it's time to practice it more LOL. Have a great week!

    1. If I remember right, Melena, there is a tutorial for Dew Drops from Sandra Strait on the TanglePatterns.com site. That's how I learned many years ago. Do try it again.

    1. Cari, see the reply above. Sandra makes it fairly easy. It is intimidating at first though.

    1. Quib was the new tangle that was introduced when I went for my CZT training four years ago. I really should use it more. Thanks for your kindness, Ilse.

  9. Jean, all your tiles are so different to each other and I love the Dansk idea of a tangle in a tangle. Your Showgirl is brill. I haven't mastered that one yet.

    1. Chrissie, I didn't get a good flow with Showgirl the first go around either. It's kind of like Mooka was for me. It took a few spins before it began to flow.

    1. I do like tangles that are floral in design, Donald. This is a great one for that.

  13. Quite a spin on dansk, I almost didn't 'see' it, which is absolutely great. And now quib with the showgirls has finally a purpose: pole dancing. Love it.

    1. Well, Susie, maybe it really isn't Dansk? Sometimes I play with tangles to the point that they are not quite recognizable. But, that's my favorite thing to do with tangles. HaHa, pole dancing. Love it!

  14. Jean, all of your tiles are very nicely done. I absolutely LOVE your Diva Challenge tile and the Showgirl with Quib is such a fun idea! The dew drops are beautifully done as well. Thank you for sharing!
