Diva Challenge: Double pencil string

I quite enjoy using a double pencil, as seen by some of my oldies below.

This weeks challenge

Sunday, 21 July 2013


Being "Ashes" time with Australia playing England at cricket, I was relegated last night to another room away from my usual daylight bulb! I found the subdued lighting hindered my attention to perfect detail but at least I could still enjoy the colours. As I go away tomorrow for a few days, it was important to get my work completed so I could post it today. I fancied doing a grid pattern I'd not used before, so selected Maelstrom. I quite liked the lacy fan effect. Then I played around with camelia.
Tangles: Maelstrom, Camelia, Striping, Black Pearls

Diva Challenge #127

Had a bit of a struggle with this one,  as you will see by the black and white tile. Diva asked us to create a zentangle using two tangle patterns "Cirquital " and "Opus". Had more fun with the colour of course being me!!

I was surprised how this design just kept developing! i enjoyed doing this zendala challenge. Hope you enjoy it too.

Zendala Dare #63

I'm amazed I actually found time to do the Dare this week. I am in the process of making a quilted book and a Patchwork quilt for my grandson who turns one next week. Plus I have also started another quilt for # 4 grandaughter in the same family. Her birthday is November so I have more time for that one.

It is interesting that one can begin a zentangle feeling completely uninspired, but as you begin, ideas come, and you create it "one stroke at a time"!!

Tangles: Verve, Pais var., Diva Dance, Bunzo, Tipple.
