Weekly Callenge #337


Greetings Fellow Tanglers!

I am back after a rocky late summer and early fall. My Hubby who many of you know has been dealing with frontal temporal dementia for the past few years, I am saddened to say, passed away in late July. This summer and fall for me was so bitter sweet. I will miss him always and cherish the time that we had together on this earth. I did tangle here and there to keep my sanity, but never seemed to get the time or the energy to post them. Now that I am back teaching and have the classroom up and running I was determined to get my tile up this week for the diva challenge. Hopefully I will be around more often.



Happy Birthday to you Artoo!

Weekly Challenge #319

Greetings Fellow Tanglers!
This week at the diva the challenge is BEad Inspired, a tribute to Artoo and his beads of courage.

Beads of courage is an arts in medicine program that helps kids with chronic or life threatening illness tell the story of their medical journey.  Each bead represents something different.  A different procedure or appointment, or special circumstance.  For example, when seeing, a doctor or getting a poke instead of getting a sticker when they leave, they are given a glass bead for each thing.  (blue for doctor, black for poke... some other beads are yellow=night in the hospital, pink=respiratory support, magenta=trip to emergent care, teal=tube insertion or removal, rainbow=therapy; physical, speech, occupational, respiratory) and every child's string is different and unique to their story.
Here are my beads of courage for you Artoo.



I have also been playing around with Dingbatz, and they have been so fun to do. Here are my first ones.

Weekly Challenge #318


Greetings Fellow Tanglers!

Crazy times for me as it is the last week of school for the kids, which means this teacher is super busy grading and trying to wrap things up for the year. Quickly finished this one up for the diva challenge of Diptychs this morning. I had started the challenge on a little bijou, and then started a second tile. I grabbed them both together to move them to another spot in the room and thought that they looked pretty fun together, so out came the glue stick and this became my tile.

Weekly Challenge #315 and IAST #193


Greetings Fellow Tanglers!

The diva challenge this week is Molygon. I admit, this one I struggle with occasionally. I seem to get my spacing off, or the ends to rounded or to pointed, and it just doesn’t flow well for me most of the time. I still haven’t given up on it yet, but I can say that it is not going to be one of my mac and cheese tangles. Here is my tile for this week


The IAST #193, Tiles for Lily
I so admire Lily’s work and wish her the best as she goes through this difficult time. Here is my tile, with love for Lily and her family.


Lastly another little bijou to be launched out as RAZ, random act of Zentangle.

Weekly Challenge #314


Greetings Fellow Tanglers!



It’s been a busy week for me with the kiddos at school. We are on the push for the end of the year and lots of major projects to get finished up. I finally had the time to finish my diva challenge tile a UMT, using Scallamps - by Sarah Uram CZT. I also added a bit of CO2. It reminds me somehow, of some sort of tube, that should show up in Whoville! 


I also finished another travelling tangle from Heidi Whitney.

 
Heidi’s start.

 
Lastly a little bijou tile that I will be launching out as a Random Act of Zentangle, or RAZ.

Weekly Challenge #313


The challenge at the diva this week is a tile for Earth Day, or as one of her sons named it Amanda day. I had wanted to try out Simone Menzel’s new tangle PRAA, and thought that this might be the time to pull out something organic. You can find her step out here. I used one of my tiles dyed with liquid watercolor, pen and color pencil and a bit of white gel pen.


I also left this little bijou good luck RAZ (Random Act of Zentangle) using a variation of Rixty at one of the eateries that I frequent.


Lastly here is a mosaic of my quarter 4 students first tiles. They seem to really be enjoying trying out this art form.

Weekly Challenge #312


Greetings Fellow Tanglers!

I hope that everyone had a great Easter, and is enjoying the spring weather. The challenge this week at the diva is a Coffee, Tea, or Me challenge, or in other words spilled, dripped or blotted things. In my case I used a tile that I have been using as a coaster at school, that was stained with you guessed it coffee. Can’t live without it in my world!
I kept it pretty simple with two tangles, Enyshou and Jetties. It’s looking like another busy week, so that’s all folks!

Weekly Challenge #311


Greetings Fellow Tanglers!

The challenge over at i am the diva this week is Circle Square String Theory. Somewhere in your tile you have to use at least one of each. I only had my basic supplies with me so here is my tile using, Well, Tipple, and Jetties. I really enjoyed shading this one.


Here is my IAST 191 tile. I didn’t get it done in time to send it in, but thought I would share it will you and wish everyone a Happy Easter! I plan on taking this up to my hubby in memory care for a bit of Easter cheer, so I was pretty literal with the string, and the coloring of this Zia.

 
I also finished a couple of travelling tiles too. I played a little more with Frunky, added some more Nipa, and a bit of Aura-Leah.

 
Heidi Whitney’s delicate start using Nipa.

 
I used some Well and Buttercup to finish this one.

 
Heidi’s start with Molygon.

Weekly Challenge #310


Greetings Fellow Tanglers!

The challenge from the diva this week is a UMT (use my tangle) and we are using Frunky by Katharina Königsbauer-Kolb. I really liked working with this tangle, and can see that it will be one of those that could easily go into my mac and cheese tangles. I used a watercolor dyed tile, then graphite and charcoal for highlights and shading. I decided to leave it as a monotangle.

Weekly Challenge #309

Greetings Fellow Tanglers

It's a short one today. The diva challenge for the week is to use noom. Here is what I came up with, and I tried out using a little nail polish to darken the middle.



I am using my iPad for this post so please excuse any issues that might be showing. Still trying to get the hang of it.

Thanks for stopping by and for all your lovely comments! They make my day!

Have a great weekend and Tangle on!
