Diva Challenge 387 & A New Celtic Knot!

Hello everyone! Welcome to The Tireless Tangler! There is a whole lot happening so be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss the fun! It’s good to get back in the swing of things! I’ve been really busy behind the scenes here on my WordPress site. I have many plans and I expect there will be growing pains but I am excited about the possibilities in the coming year!

March 17th is St. Patrick’s day and this is the perfect time to share some new Celtic Knot Tutorials. I’ve been hoarding some knot designs and I have some good ones for you this month. Below is a YouTube link for this week’s tutorial.

First though, let’s stop and enjoy this week’s diva challenge! The Diva, Laura Harms, challenges us to use CZT, Holly Atwater’s intriguing Tangle, HaWy. I thoroughly enjoyed exploring this Tangle. It looks high focus but it truly isn’t. It’s all about recognizing the star shape and working from there. I also like how it can look like 3D blocks or something entirely different depending on how you envision it. Thanks Holly for deconstructing this amazing pattern!

Here are 2 tiles that are very different.

This pretty Celtic knot represents sisterhood which is a perfect fit for Women’s History month. Be sure to subscribe to my channel or check back next Friday for a wonderful lucky Shamrock knot with hearts woven into the leaves!

It’s a String Thing 249

Hey Everyone! Welcome back to The Tireless Tangler! It is time for Adele Bruno’s weekly “It’s a String Thing” challenge. This week’s challenge included a string with loops and 2 great tangles, the Zentangle ® Original tangle, Diva Dance and CZT, Lynn Mead’s Abeko. As always, you can join the “String Thing” challenge at Adele Bruno’s blog, Tickledtotangle! Here’s my tile!

Diva Challenge #361

Welcome back everyone!  It has been a really difficult week this week as my tangling was interrupted when I filmed my video on Sunday morning. I didn’t realize the effect that the sun shining on my shoulder meant the sun was also shining on the surface of the iPad. So, of course being the smart thing it is, it turned itself off! Unfortunately, that made editing very difficult because I couldn’t complete it on one device! IPads and androids are not good friends!  So this week I have been working between my small phone and my barely working iPad to get this long video edited. It’s been edited by two different devices and that is making everything choppy. I apologize in advance for the poor quality! The sound is up and down but it is also captioned!

But you are not here for my video! you are here for the diva challenge. This week’s diva challenge number 361, is an Earth Day theme, as it has the last two years, and we tangled on the back of boxes i.e. cereal boxes pizza boxes etc. the ones that have the nice brown back. I have to say I love this challenge!  Nothing gets my creativity rolling like tangling on cardboard. I made three tiles but I’m only going to share my last one. There are many tangles included here.

Joki, bales, purk, sandswirl, fassett, flux, Printemps, shattuck, fife, p’kok and my new obsession, circe!

This is the project in the tutorial this week. It is done on a black Zentangle Zendala tile. If anyone gives it a try, please tag me in it on Instagram or Facebook @thetirelesstangler or else where #thetirelesstangler

Lastly, i started a new artistic endeavor for dear friend Amanda Rose Rambo at #vitruvianart! She was looking for Colorists for her coloring books and I thought I’d give it a try if I can block in the time for it! Here’s my first try from Amanda’s coloring book Gemstones volume 4 found here at Amazon!
