Diva Challenge #214—An Iris Tangle


iris tangle

Finally I got my tangle done for the Diva Challenge #214, which was to make an Earth Day challenge. The irises have been blooming like crazy for the last few weeks and using that shape to tangle within was an idea that was already rattling around in my head. This seemed to fit into the “Earth Day/Amanda Day” theme. Check out her adorable explanation of the Earth being named Amanda.  🙂 I’ll admit this was not a quick project, it’s one that I wanted to spend some time on!

Here are the patterns I used:
Top of the iris—the “standards” of the iris—Tagh and Zippee
The bottom of the iris—the falls—Florz and Flux
The stem—Annee
The leaves—-Chainlea

The rest of it is stuff I just made up as I went along. I used black pens of different sizes, and some colored pencils to add in the color.  I am pleased!

L tangle Here’s a tangle I made for a friend.  Not for my husband, though, who has this same initial!  I did not sign it—I was trying to give it anonymously.  I like how it came out!

Here are the patterns I used:
From top to bottom, Left, then right— Knightsbridge, Ragz, Printemps, Shing, Flux

Tangle challenge #213


I love the idea of a weekly Zentangle Challenge! Thanks to the Diva at I am the Diva, I have a little weekly motivation. I am finding that I don’t really tangle until the weekends, so I am a bit late to the game, but I really enjoyed tangling around this “found object tangle.”  Here’s the tangle:

Plus a few little drawings I did for Bess’s babysitting kid, Kort. She is totally in love with these Shopkins!

4-10-15 Weekly Diva Challenge #212—-Fanz

I think I’m ready to start up this blog again! Whew! 2012? My oh my a lot has changed since then. Here’s a little something I did Friday night—hope you enjoy!  I am really enjoying tangling (if I di not have a job or a family, I’d do 4 tiles a day, I love it that much) and keep looking all over to see if I can go tangle with others someplace.  Seems like no dice in this area.

School will be in it’s last 6 weeks starting Monday, so we are in the home stretch.  This also means I may be so busy that this may be my only post for months.  Or years, let’s get real!  Lol! 🙂

Here’s to a restart, though!
