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!

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 :-)

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 :-)

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.

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 :-)

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 :-)

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".

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 :-)

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 ;-)

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...!

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).

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!

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.
