Zenuari #16/ Diva #299

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 ;-)

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 :-)

Zenuari day #15: Duo-color

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.

Zenuari day 14: Inspired by...

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.

Zenuari #13/ Crea-Cross #2

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!

Zenuari day 12: Graphite is the new black

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 ;-)))

Joey's challenge #147

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.

Zenuari day 11: Straight

We're to draw a string with just straight lines and fill it with whatever tangle we like. I chose to use Sanibelle, Kiss, Knightsbridge and half a Zedbra ;-)
