Diva Challenge #224: Tipple

Laura asks us to fill a space with tiny circles, aka Tipple :-) Creating a monotangle is a challenge I always love to do, even if it means I have to draw millions (ahum) of tiny circles - in string #127 this time. How nice to see yin and yang appear!

Thank you for visiting my blog, your comments always brighten my day :-)

That's New to Me: N

This week's new to me tangle has to start with N. I chose Narwal, which I had never done before. It certainly won't be the last time I drew it.

In the background, you see the pattern 'Westminster' by Neil Burley, the Artist Focus of the week. This tangle was also new to me. 

Take a look at Suzy Mosh's site to look at the other entries, or to participate in the challenge yourself :-)

It's a String Thing #98

Adele Bruno is challenging us for the 98th (!) time. We're to use Sting #090 and some flowery patterns: Cruffle, Curl and Mel Mel. I didn't know any of them, so again I've been practising in this tile :-)

J-W-O Challenge

Diane & Carolien like us to tangle with patterns starting with J, W and O. Somehow it turned out that I only used patterns that were new to me, so it was a nice practising creation :-)

The tangles I used, from top left to bottom right are: Wisket, Waax, Ovy, Jessicup and Jelly Roll.

Stacked and Tangled #5

I felt like Stacking again :-) and I used Dust Bunny, Bloom and Borbz. Take a look at the Facebook group Stacked and Tangled to see what other people are stacking ;-)

That's New to Me: F

This is week #25 of Suzy Mosh' challenge! I think I have participatef in almost all of them: there's always a new pattern to discover. Thank you, Suzy!

My new F-patterns are Fürn and Flyz. They make a lovely duo ;-)

Joey's Challenge #56

For Joey's Alphabet Monotangle Challenge we've arrived at C, and more specifically at the tangle pattern Cornerz. I wasn't sure about the composition, I probably made it a bit difficult for myself by putting larger and smaller Cornerz in my tile. It was a nice experiment though :-)

Diva Challenge #223

Laura challenges us to try out the New-Old tangle Umble, which was in the latest Zentangle newsletter. Thanks to this newsletter (I think) Umble appeared in another challenge last week. You can see what I made of that challenge when you click here. Quite different, don't you think?

Below you see my Diva tile :-)

Ojo meets ING

ING is one of my favorite patterns to draw and this time I connected it with Ojo - and kept the rest of the tile plain and simple.

That's New to me: R

Suzy Mosh asks us to tangle a pattern that's new to me starting with R, and to add a pattern of Lily Popcheff. She makes wonderful, so I was pleased to give her Trapt1 a try, next to Raffz (new to me as well).

F-M-T Challenge

Diane and Carolien challenge us to make tile with tangles starting with the letters F, M and T. I fancied doing Mumsy and put Tipz and Fescu to it. I like the result :-)

It's a String Thing #97

We are Tickled to Tangle in a string that Adele Bruno created for Father's Day. When you turn your head to the right side and take a good look, you might be able to discover the letters DAD were the string ;-)

The patterns I used are Umble, Diamonds & Squares and All about "V".

Joey's Challenge #55

We've arrived at the letter B of Joey's Alphabet Monotangle, which means we have to a Bunzo Monotangle.

I had to think about the composition for this one, couldn't decide, so I just started tangling. Then all of a sudden, I knew there had to be a Bunzo sun, shining down on the other Bunzo's :-)

Diva Challenge #222

Laura challenges us to use multi colours. Hmm, apparently not really my cup of tea ;-) but I tried my best :-)

#-C-R challenge

Diane and Carolien challenge us to use three patterns, starting with a number, with C and with R.

I chose (new to me) tangle 133, CO2 and Riverstones.

It's a String Thing #96

Adele Bruno likes us to use String 092 and four patterns starting with N: Neuron, Nuwave, Nvelope and Nipa. I used all four, Nuwave was new to me.

Joey's Challenge #64

Joey is starting something new: Alphabet monotangles. I'm a big fan of monotangles, I always find it challenging to create a composition with just one pattern.

This week we start with Arukas. I can only hope that my little twinkling stars don't make this a Duotangle. They're just little white gaps in the drawing ;-)

Diva's challenge #221

This week's theme of Laura's challenge is 'Beads of Courage'. This is an Arts in Medicine that supports kids with chronic or life threatening illnesses. Instead of a sticker, these kids get a glass bead when they've had a needle, x-ray etc. 

Laura asks us to get inspired by Beads of Courage. As I have a chronic disease myself since my 24th, I can only imagine what it feels like to go through all the hassle when you're a kid. I admire their positiveness and can only give them my heart (full of Widgets ;-) ) to stay strong. I know they will...!

Stacked and Tangled #4

I love to stack and tangle! It sometimes feels more relaxing than using a string. And with tiles like this, you can use many different patterns (some new to me). 

From top left to bottom right, I used Flaske, Flukes, Fluttertile, Hibred, Ninja, Nebel and Popova.

That's New to Me: A

LOur random letter for week 22 at Suzy Mosh' challenge is A, and we have an Artist Focus: Margaret Bremner. She created beautiful patterns, so next to (New to Me) Avreal, I used three of her tangles: Croon, Zigzag and and variation of Pia. I had fun!

Y-Z-A challenge

It's a String Thing #95

We use string #096 for Adele Bruno's 95th challenge and some lovely patterns. I chose to use Bublz and a variation of the tangles Yincut and Onomato. Quite like the result: it's different!

Joey's Challenge #63

To mark the beginning of Jube, Joey likes us to use string 006 and fill it with J-tangles. I chose to use Jax and Jelly Roll and keep it simple ;-)

Diva's Challenge #220

It's the first Monday of the month, so it's UMT-time (Use My Tangle). This time we're using 'All Boxed Up' by Alice Hendon. It's a tangle full of straight lines, which I like, so I set down to focus on going straight ;-)

Take a look at Laura's Challenge page to see the other entries, it's always nice to see all the creative ideas.

Thanks for your comments on last week's tile!


I wanted to do Crossview again, so here it is :-)

To fill up the blanks, I used Bales, Beelight, Gewgle, Square in Square, Scallops, Moving Day, Navaho and Tipple in the middle.
