" A Little Help from a Friend " - Weekly Challenge #22

Here is the Diva's challenge for this week "Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to enlist the help of someone other than yourself who will draw the string on your tile or Zentangle Inspired Art."

I like this!  No stress.  String was drawn by my handsome DH of 47 years...and I relaxed into my Zentangle.  Thank you, Laura, for another fun challenge.

Traditional Zentangle using traditional supplies/tools.
...... and the string:

String for above Zentangle.

Happy tangling!
p.s.  Happy Birthday, David!  Love you.

" OoF " - Weekly Challenge # 21

This week the Diva has challenged us to create a Zentangle tile or ZIA using the new Official tangle
" Oof ".... (which was introduced in the Zentangle Newsletter).

For some reason, this pattern has me scratching my head.  I can't seem to wrap my brain around it so that it makes sense... but it sure is fun to play with.  Here, I have used it kinda-like a string.  One single little OoF. 
"OoF" - 3.5" tile; Sakura Micron black #01 & #005
Will keep practicing.....

Happy tangling!

" Royal Wedding" - Weekly Challenge #20

This week's challenge from the Diva is to take inspiration from the recent Royal Wedding and tangle a memory.

Princess Catherine's dress was lovely, and the simplicity of style with lace accent was stunning.  I love lace... and have never thought of 'drawing' or 'tangling' it.... until the Diva's challenge.

So here is my attempt at an interpretation of 'lace'. (*note: my lace is 'hand-made'.  Perhaps, someday, I'll attempt a tangle of  'machine-made'  lace.  Perhaps.)  8-)

Happy tangling!
