This week’s challenge by CZT Sharla Hicks is to use undulating tangles. My tile is last minute, but better late than never. I chose to use one of my favorite tangles, Fengle in my first tile, along with Tipple, Flux, and a Scallop variation. I love Fengle’s S curves, and I kept repeating them until they filled up the space. The second tile used the lazy curve of a C in Tina Hunziker’s tangle Niuroda in the lower right, along with Chris Titus’ CanT, and a variation of Cari Camara’s Neat. The Zentangle Afterglo is in the top left.
This week’s blogger filling in for Laura is CZT Sandy Hunter. Sandy challenged us to leave negative space in our tile rather than filling in the whole space. I used Flux with some tiny black pearls. I have to admit, it was hard to keep my Flux in check. I wanted to keep adding to it. As it’s often said, less is more!
Jen Crutchfield, CZT is filling in for Laura this week, and she’s challenged us to use color in our tiles, maybe combinations of colors we don’t normally use. I tend to use blues, greens and purples, so I added pink and yellow to my tile. I also added some water droplets, something I’ve been experimenting with. This is the first time I’ve tried them on color.
It’s been about three weeks since I did my last challenge. April was a very busy month! I’m glad to be back here. The Diva Challenge this week is to use the tangle “Brella” by Bunny Wright, CZT. This is a fun pattern. I did a monotangle, making one large Brella, with many little Brellas inside the large one. I did a slight variation to the pattern and added some color to highlight the umbrella effect.
