Weekly Challenge #169: String Theory: Circles

This week’s Diva challenge is to use circles. I started with one large circle, then started adding smaller and smaller circles in a symmetrical fashion. Then I had to figure out what to do next. I decided to add color and after I did I saw flowers.
Thank you to everyone who takes the time to leave comments. I always read them, and they are very much appreciated! Thanks also for the get well wishes! I’m feeling much better! Thank you!

Weekly Challenge #168 Tangleation Nation: Rain

This week’s Diva challenge is Rain, in tribute to all the rain where Laura lives, something we’ve had a lot of here too! The sun has decided to shine for the next couple of days, so I hope everyone here in the States enjoys their Memorial Day weekend! This tile was done on Wednesday, but I’m just posting now because I’ve spent most of the past few days in bed with bursitis in my hip. No fun! It’s made me realize that as much as I don’t want to admit it, I’m getting older! Anyway, I’m ambling about today and thought the tile needed to be posted, late or not.  I initially thought it was kind of lacking something, so I added some  gold dots with a paint pen.


Weekly Challenge #167: DuoTangle Well/Punzel

When I saw what the Diva’s challenge was this week I cringed…a duotangle of Well and Punzel. I love Well and all the variations, but Punzel….not so much. I always have difficulty with this one. But a challenge is supposed to challenge you, so I started practicing my Punzel. After several attempts I decided it was as good as it was going to get. So here is my tile.  Along with shading I added some white highlights. Punzel will never be a favorite tangle, but I gave it my best shot and I’m happy with how it turned out.



Weekly Challenge #166: UMT Diva style

The past few weeks have been so busy that I’ve  missed the last couple of challenges. I was determined not to miss this one! This week’s challenge is one that Laura, the Diva herself, came up with. She said it’s a variation of  Carole Ohl’s tangle Tink, and it was a fun one to do. I was having such a good time doing it, that I had filled up almost the whole tile before I made myself stop. To finish it off I added a little color and tucked in some black orbs.
