Diva’s Challenge and then some…

Diva’s Challenge and then some…

It’s been a while since I’ve done one, but the diva’s challenge #178 is to use tangles that begin with our initials in a duo tangle. I’ve always liked doing this. . . I’ve done several for friends with tangles that start with letters of their first names.  It’s a good way to get started when you don’t know what to tangle.  You just divide the tile into the correct number of spaces, go searching for tangles and voila! Here’s my tangle:

Diva Challenge #178-DuoTangle with Initials

Two of my favorite tangles that I don’t seem to use much: d-vine and y-ful power

I’ve been working a lot on black with white gelly roll lately, zendalas from templates.  It was the last class. . . just can’t get enough of that white on black! Here are a couple:

Hope to hear from you, I love your comments and I thank you for taking time to leave one.  Happy Tangling ’til next time. . .

Class Update!! Mucho Fun!!

Look at what we did on Saturday! We (my sister and I) taught 11 students from age 8 to 70-something, how to tangle with white gelly roll pens onto black Zentangle tiles.  We reviewed some tangles they had learned previously on the first tile shown here:

White on Black - Tile #1

White on Black – Zentangle 301

And, taught a few new tangles on the second tile:

Zentangle 301 - Tile #2

Click on these pics to see them larger.  Our tiles are mixed in with the rest of the class.  It’s just amazing how everyone really took to this media.  I just hope they all had as much fun as we did! Now. . . what do we do next?  Renaissance Tiles?  Zendalas?  Organic Gardens?

Zentangle 101 – a wonderful class!

We had a great time teaching ZT101 again at Bob’s Sewing and Vacuum in Albuquerque last Saturday.  Here are the results:

Beautiful tiles by 4 beautiful women (and ours too)

Beautiful tiles by 4 beautiful ladies (and ours too)

It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve seen this, I just love how everyone has their own take on the patterns, the instruction.  Each is unique, just as every person we meet is a unique world unto themselves.  It makes me want to get to know them and find out their story. . . everyone has a story! And it’s usually very interesting!
