Diva Challenge 379 and 12 Days of Zentangle Day 8

Hello everyone! It’s been a very busy Monday but I was able to finish all my projects! Yay ME! First I want to share my Diva Challenge tile for this week. The Diva has challenged us to create a holiday tile and if you’d like to follow along, here’s the link for the Diva’s challenge. I’ve been playing around with Eni Oken’s lesson on the tangle Peanuckle by Molly Hollibaugh. Peanuckle can be a tough tangle to master and I was one who struggled with it. Then I watched Eni Oken’s video lesson by the same name and it all fell into place. Like so many lessons, Eni put her own spin on things and suddenly the tangle just clicked for me. Here’s where you can find Eni’s lesson on Peanuckle. I recently watched the lesson again and took another stab at the project. Here’s my sketch pad version.

I posted this in Eni Oken’s Art Club for comments and someone suggested it was ribbons and Pine Cones. That stuck in my head and I thought I would do a color version. When the Diva asked for holiday tiles this week, it seemed the perfect solution. Here’s my Diva Challenge tile number 379!

Lastly, I want to share todays 12 Days of Zentangle videos with my spinner progress! Today’s lesson was given by the lovely Julie Willand, an important member of the Zentangle HQ family. We used the tangles Crescent Moon, Bales, Shattuck, Marasu, and Indy Rella. All of these tangles are well known and very enjoyable to use. Here’s my Spinner progress from today along with the YouTube video link. Enjoy and I’ll see you all tomorrow!

  1. These are so beautiful. Til now I’ve avoided Peanuckle. But your post is so encouraging and the Tiles amazing that I’ll give it a try. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Vielen Dank Liebe Lisette! Peanuckle ist etwas schwerig aber ganz toll wenn man es geschaft hat’! I hope you are well and enjoying the holiday season! Du müß mich bilder aus Der Schweiz zeigen! Schön Grüß aus Oklahoma!

  2. I’m scared of Peanuckle, too, but I wish the video was free. I’ll have to suss it out on my own. Your rendition is really lovely, so it gives me incentive to untangle this tangle.

    1. I know what you mean about the cost! It’s one reason I joined art club. I get all her awesome lessons included in a pretty small cost. I put off purchasing Eni’s lessons for quite some time, but when she started art club I just couldn’t say no! Plus she often gives us great discounts on lessons we don’t have. Her Peanuckle technique is a completely new take on drawing it. Completely changed the way I approach the Tangle.

  3. Your Peanuckle tile is amazing! I will definitely look up that video. Your spinner is lovely, too. I didn’t do one, but I’m going to see if I can still order one and do it in the new year.
