Weekly Challenge #111 More-Mooka-Madness Monotangle-Mania

oops! I didn't realise until I uploaded that it was a monotangle. :)

Mooka, is one I avoid at all costs - something about it - maybe cause I find it difficult to incorporate in my work :) I do love the flowy style of our tangling colleagues, but I would say, my works are more structured in appearance - not to say I plan because I don't, I just take it to where it takes me - love the element of surprise :)

go here iamthedivaczt.blogspot.com.au/ to see other works - I'll try to get through them all - there are so many and my time is limited of late :)

thanks for looking :)

Had an idea to use the same principle as 'flowervine' - I love how easy it is to do :)

Here is my first entry for Dare #50.

Lately, Ive taken to shading, however I have much to learn. I used to avoid shading and quite liked tiles without, but now I love it - I find it's very therapeutic, for me :)

Fridge Magnets

I found these cool Photo Fridge Magnets at the '$2' store and yes they were $2 lol.  So, what to do?  Tangle of course :)

Thank you for visiting :)





Adventures in Monotangle #3

This adventure was quite a tricky one as I didn't feel there was much room for play - in any case I did 2 (well 3 if you count the one in Sepia, same tile though)  One using a leafy pattern which I am not sure of the name or if it even has one - kinda is a little bit like Pais.  On the other I used one of my favourites, Bunzo.
If you have some time, please visit Roy over at  http://mindful-creations.blogspot.com.au/2013/03/adventures-in-monotangles-3.html to see what others have done.

Thank you for visiting :)




Sphere Look Zendala

Margaret Bremner posted a link to a couple of templates for a Zendala with a Sphere look.  Here I used 'Maddie'.  I had fun playing with this, but I realised I turned my tile around and my concave became convex :)) oh well, no mistakes - right? :)

Thanks Margaret

Weekly Challenge #110: "Get rid of the box"



This week the Diva has encouraged us to be creative and think outside of the box.

Well, well, well, did I have some fun!

I was going to roast some Beetroot for dinner, so I kept some and cut a heart shape with a cookie cutter.  I also used the peelings to colour some paper.  I haven't done anything with that yet - been too busy with this challenge :)

Okay, so once my creative juices got going, there was no stopping. 

I decided to have the heart as the main feature of this floral Zentangle Inspired Art.  I then cut some leaves and succulents and laid them out artfully on a sushi mat which would provide texture for when I edited.

Now, it was always my intention to work on this digitally once it was assembled and snap shot taken.  In my mind I was going to use the ebossing feature, print it on paper and then I was going to tangle with pens. 

I also chose my plants to be both red and green in colour, so if I chose to invert the pic you would still see a difference.

.....However, I was having too much fun - edited in many ways. 

Thanks for your visit - comments are most welcome

Tangled plate using Magic Plate Kit. These kits are being sold at work and I am buying one for my almost 3 year old grand-daughter. I was ordering 5 altogether but I decided to buy the one on display so I could test it out, just in case it wasn't to my expectations - my verdict? I may get more, but really don't know what I would do with them :)

Whyz Goblets

Whyz Goblets by Poppie_60
Whyz Goblets, a photo by Poppie_60 on Flickr.

Wanted to try 'Whyz' with a curved line to see if it would work in a circle or rounded shape. I replaced 'Y' with a semi circle.... and it works beautifully. They look like little wine goblets, hence the title.

I just love this pattern by Jane MacKugler, CZT- it has so much scope :)
