Weekly Challenge #67: "Amanda Day"

This weeks Diva challenge is to honor Earth Day.  Her son Chewie has renamed the Earth - he now calls it Amanda!  So...this week I will be using one of the new Zendala tiles.  This will be interesting to see all the different ways we interpret "Amanda Day".  Personally I love all plants and trees...maybe I'll do mine in shades of green and blue.  Thank you to Chewie for his take on Earth Day!  Happy Tangling to All.

4 in 1 Swap

This is from a recent swap from the Zentangle Inspired Art Yahoo group.  We each did a large tangle the size of 4 ATC's using the same string .  These were returned to the swap host - Cindy Fleming, who cut them into individual ATC's.  One of our originals was returned to us along with art from three other traders.  Starting in the top left corner from Anita Ruby, then Kristy Speer and Patty Meijer, then mine in the bottom left corner.  This was awesome.  Thank you to Cindy F, Anita, Kristy and Patty.  Sure hope we do this one again.

This is my original.  What a difference!!

Weekly Challenge #66: Laura's Auras

This weeks Diva challenge is to place "Auras" around your tangle.  Draw the tangle and then place the aura around it.  A simple line...but it makes a big difference in the way the tangle plays on the tile.  As always my challenge is done in a 4 x 6 drawing journal.  A little bit more work, but I love the extra space.  I don't know if anyone has given it a name, but the little loop that I add in the dips...I call it "Sseedz" 'cause it reminds me of Strawberry seeds! Glad to hear that Artoo is on the mend.  It is truly heartbreaking when little ones aren't well.  

Wishing everyone a great week!

Weekly Challenge #65: "UMT v.III"

This is the third installment of UMT or Use My Tangle.  UMT #3 is Huggy Bear by JJ LaBarbera.  I can't wait to get started on this coffee first, then tangling!  Such a great way to start the week! 

Huggy Bear with some extra hugs!  Also included another tangle of JJ's - Allium.  This one certainly helped to get me through a difficult morning.  Wishing everyone who reads this a great Monday and a super week!
