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.

Purky Purk

A couple of weeks ago I enjoyed 2 days in Hobart at the Annual Rotary Art Show demonstrating Zentangle. I chose purk to feature on each tile and just see where they ended up and to show the easiness of a nice loopy string.
Here are five of my favourite tiles from the weekend.

purk and drupe

purk with twing, printemps and crescent moon

The Diva's   Weekly Challenge #284: "Monotangle to Tripoli"

Tripoli is one of my favourite tangles and I wanted to experiment with stripes but to get all the stripes to fit in and stay vertical in the triangle just doesn't work but I like the way parts float off and then merge back together. 

Once my monotangle was finished I decided to add some betweed and turn it into a duotangle.

Art Yoga Retreat

Something to think about for Tanglers in Tasmania.
11th -13th November
Maria Island in springtime....that's a treat. Fresh air. Sunshine.
Suzie's nourishing food and the peaceful setting is the best way to relax and be inspired to create something special.
I am really looking forward to this weekend.

Duotangle Meer vs Auraknot

The Diva's
Weekly Challenge #279: "Duotangle Meer vs Auraknot"

I probably wouldn't have thought of this combination so thank you Laura because the tile felt quite festive and I think I'll play some more with this idea.

Softly does it backgrounds!

Amazingly there is always something new to learn about Zentangle techniques. If you have the Zentangle Mosaic app you have probably seen Maria Thomas's latest wonderful tiles. This week I have been inspired by her tangling to play with the white pen creating soft backgrounds.
