Diva Challenge #164

This weeks challenge is to depict Earth Day, April 22nd. In my tile I have collated the sun, water, trees, plants. I worked on a parchment paper tile which doesn't make the colours so bright, as earth is suffering right now, though it remains awesomely beautiful in so many places. I coloured with Prismacolour pencils.



I have also made a colour wheel recently so I can decide on a colour scheme for my spiral project. which of course I just had to tangle.

More spirals

I've just returned from holiday to visit my 8 grandchildren. I actually did the initials string challenge but do you thunk I can find it? Any way while away I wanted to do something bigger and to paint it, so I have it here first just completed in pen, then with pencil shading, which I will erase to paint.

This weeks Diva Challenge is "Spiralling out". Quite fun!!
The Zendala Dare is No.78. For this I tried to get the rainbow sequence with the colours.

Zendala dare 84

As Erin is taking a break for study purposes, we have no Zendala Dare challenges for a while, I thought I'd catch up with some I had not done. This ones no. 84

Facebook tile swap

I'm having quite an enjoyable time doing tiles for a Zentangle group on Facebook. I'm not normally into FB, but I found two tangle groups which I enjoy sharing with. It was a big decision to go into the swap as most folk live in America, and I live in Australia,  so each letter costs $2:60 ea. you could do a group of 15 or everyone which was 45. I decided it would be a nice thing to do if only once! I've already shared a few of my tiles, so have 3 more today.

Zentangle swap

I am swapping with some zentanglers on Facebook so will share my tiles on my blog. The task is to complete a "proper" tile. Only black and white. This should be awesome. I did a swap recently with Aussie Zentanglers on FB, it was really good to have someone else's artwork in your hands!!!
