Laura likes us to use the pattern Drawing (new to me) and Anoeska asks us to draw a tile with only 'new to me' tangles, so here we are! Next to Drawing I drew Flee: together they look like some funny flying objects to me. Thanks for the inspiration ladies, and thank you for visiting my blog. Your comments brighten my day :-)

This week, again I'm combining the Diva challenge with a Zenuari prompt. I want to participate in both, and since the flew took some of my tangling days and time (amongst others ;-) ) I find this a 'peaceful' solution ;-)

We're making a duo-colored Zentangle drawing today. Not my cup of tea (I find it hard to shade and creating a nice composition is much harder to me). But: of course I gave it a try :-)
The patterns I've used are Flutterbud, Inbloom and Leeter.

Escher is an artist I really admire, and knowing I'll never come even close to what he created (!), I decided to let his work inspire me.
The patterns I used are Cubine, Beelight, Widgets and variations of these tangles.

To be able to participate in all those challenges, I'll sometimes use 1 entry for 2 challenges. This time, I'll combine Zenuari ('Monotangle') and Crea-cross ('Frozen'), which results in a frozen Monotangle made of the tangle pattern Frost Flower. The heart shaped string is to thank Anoeska and my namesake Ilse for their challenges!
Anoeska likes us to us graphite as an important part of our tile, not just for shadowing. I was curious to see what happens when I use black in one part of the tile, and graphite in another part.
In the end, I believe I prefer black to darken some parts of the tile, because it looks more dramatic. Apparently I'm quite a drama Queen ;-)))

Thanks to Zenuari, January is a busy month when it comes to tangling ;-) I always like Joey's challenges, so I'll try to fit it in in my zentangle schedule ;-) And yes, keeping the zen-feeling is my main goal :-)
So, I'm joining in for the second week of a series of Alphabet ZIA strings, with the letter B. Joey started it with the tangle B-Twixt and I put other B-tangles to it: Barberpole, Bales and B-twined.
