Diva Weekly Challenge # 176-2

On this tile I used Tangle Patterns String 113 by Melodie Hampshire.  I added a circle as we had a 'super moon' that night in the sky.  The background is stained with Tetley Decaffeinated tea and Crystal Light - raspberry peach.  This is my second Diva Weekly Challenge #176 "BYOB" (Beverage) by CZT Amy guest posting from Tennessee.

Rose String

I drew out a rose for a string - the idea came from the book The Beauty of Zentangle and it is from Marizaan van Beek CZT's roses in the book.  Some of the tangles I used are:  Afterglo, Crescent Moon, Cubic, Caviar, Hypnotic, Tripoli, Knights Bridge and Stipple.  The colour is with Derwent watercolour pencil crayons and a Pigma micron pen.  It is good to be back Zentangling again.

Day 18-3 of One Zentangle a Day

This is another Zentangle from the One Zentangle a Day book.  The assignment for Day 18 was also to do a Zentangle somewhere else with a grab and go kit.  I couldn't sleep so I took my kit, etc. into the guest room and did it on the desk in there.  I haven't done any Zentanges for awhile so hopefully this will inspire me to get back into it.  I grabbed one of the tiles that I had done a watercolour wash on, drew some strings and began tangling in the sections.
Last week on the Diva Challenge they all used my tangle, Bugles.  I only got to thank the first 46 people who used it.  I would like to thank them all here.  It was wonderful to see how people used their creative talents and came up with so many different variations, ones that I would never have thought of.  Thank you all for participating.  I was honoured.

Diva Weekly Challenge # 166

Diva Weekly Challenge # 166:  UMT Diva Style.  I started with a blue and maulve wash background then added various sized circles with a template.  I free-hand added inner circles then joined them with straight lines.  I rounded off the inner sections and shaded the lines.  I then added some blue, maulve and white pencil crayon for colour shading of the circles.
