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!

Diva Challenge #333

 This week’s Diva Challenge was brought to us by guest bloggers, CZTs Juliette Flessinger and Kellie Fellinge, from the podcast, Tanglepod.  Listen to their diva Challenge here. This week we were challenged to find and use our “cozy” tangles. Tangles we feel relaxed and comfortable with.  I chose flux (Rick’s version) and went with a tile  i had distressed earlier and then shaded using Crayola Super Tips. The Crayola Super Tips are water-soluble and perfect for shading with watercolor, Derwent Inktense or distressed inks. Right now, they sell on Amazon.com for $14.00 USD for 100 colors. A great deal for most wet media projects. All of the guest bloggers this summer have been excellent.

  

  

Diva Challenges #290 and 291

This week’s Diva Challenge was to create a Halloween themed tile. On my tile I used #dandi, and #Web and the mummy wraps are a sort of #hollibaughsy #aquafluersy looking thing. I used black card stock, Sakura Moonlight gel pens, as well as a white gelly roll, also from Sakura. Also I used a white Prismacolor Premier pencil.

Last week’s challenge was to mix the 2 tangles #n’zepple and #Flux. I thought my tiles were to frivolous to post but when I posted them to the Zentangle Mosaic app, founder Maria Thomas was one who quickly appreciated them (I won’t lie, I’m still a bit giddy!)

This was a complete mistake! I’d meant to add a water drop but was not paying enough attention and got a see thru #Flux. This funny mistake ended up pretty cool looking and is one reason the Zentangle Method doesn’t acknowledge mistakes. It is still part of the creative process! 

This was just for fun! Both versions of Flux with a bit of N’zepple.

See everyone for next week’s challenge! As always the link to the Diva’s site can be found in the menu!  Happy tangling!
