Diva Challenge 368 “Straight Lines”

I’m so glad to have the Diva’s challenges back! In her 368th challenge, Laura Harms has challenged us to use only straight lines in our tiles this week. Although straight is tough for me, I threw in some MicroTangling (from the lesson of the same name by Eni Oken), Baton, and some Shattuck with a bit of Knightsbridge for embellishment and called it done. I have a real appreciation for simple and basic right now so this was great for me. Although, it’s not fancy, I enjoyed the process very much and was pleased as much with the stress relief as with the tile itself. While sitting in the chemo chair today my blood pressure started at 183/90…not good at all, but when finished, after tangling the hours away it lowered itself to 132/85. Perhaps not scientific, but proof enough for me that tangling is great for the body, mind and soul! Here’s my tile!

It’s a String Thing 252

Hello everyone! Welcome to The Tireless Tangler! It’s time for the weekly It’s a String Thing challenge number 252. This week, Adele Bruno challenged us to explore the Tangle “Deeday“. DeeDay was new to me and I really enjoyed the challenge to use DeeDay in 2 ways. One, as a String, and another using the string provided by Adele. Eni Oken’s MicroTangling lesson is still very much influencing my tangling at the moment, as evidenced by the 2nd tile. I encourage you to explore DeeDay in your next tile! As always, you can join the “It’s a String Thing” challenge by visiting Adele’s blog, Tickled to Tangle!

Here is this week’s string.

It’s a String Thing 251!

As usual, my tile is reflects the influence of Eni Oken’s new 3D grid lesson!💜 Here’s my tile!

Also this week, I finished a fun tangling project and posted a 10 sec video to Instagram which really got a lot of attention! Since then, I posted to Facebook with an even greater response with requests to know how it was done. 💜Naturally, I made a tutorial! It’s live on Facebook now. Here is the first video and a link to the tutorial on Facebook.

This is called a Flextangle. It’s an Oragami kid’s toy that many of us played with as kids. I’ve added a Zentangle flair for you!
