The Diva dancing in Lisbon

The Diva's
Weekly Challenge #327: "The Diva dancing in Li sbonGuest Blogger Henrike Bratz

For this week's challenge I decided to use a pre-strung tan tile and try to fit Henrike's fragment Lisbon into triangles.
I missed the last challenge so added some 'Nzeppel circles to fill in the spaces.

Some photos of our travels in Thailand, enjoying the sights, sounds and colours of Bangkok and Chiang Mai.

Sensational melon carvings in Chiang Mai

We hired a scooter, worked our way through the traffic and ventured up over the mountains.

Scooter got a puncture, had to get a local mechanic to repair it!

Ellish with Mooka Spiral

This week I have been delighted with the questions about how I created the Tangled Heart for The Diva's Challenge. Well, it just happened! With that in mind I decided to tangle a spiral shape on a renaissance Opus tile with the same process and show you how it grew!

Hope the pictures tell the story.

Started with a spiral string and ellish in the centre

Continue around the shape and finish ellish with a mooka tail.

Keep going, ellish is a very forgiving shape.

Occasionally fill in the empty spaces with an aura and fill with brown pen. 

Tangle the ends, have fun!

Shade with pencil and highlight with white charcoal.

Tangled Heart

The Diva's
Weekly Challenge #324: Guest Post - Jessica Davies - Tangled Heart

My heart sure is in a tangle with a little mooka weaving it's way in and out of ellish.

Earlier this week I enjoyed the company of my special friend Karen, who you all know as The Creative Miss L.
In this photo you can see Karen's wonderful Opus tile she tangled with the fun wooden letters she gave me to tangle.

What a joy Zentangle is for bringing such lovely people to my home. Thank you Karen for travelling from Canberra to Tasmania, hope to see you again next year.

Patrick Swayze told us not to put Baby in the corner but what about putting gourdgeous in the corners?

Had a heap of fun tying my tangles in a knot, I suppose that's better than getting my knickers in a knot!
