Challenge #218

So here is my weekly challenge tile. I love white on black but for some reason this one istruggled with an idea. I saw B'dylan the other day on line and like the simplicity of it and wanted to draw it. I thought it would look good on black. Then trying to figure out what else to do. :) So i started with bubbles just to play around. It is simple but i still like it. :)

Here were the instructions:

Weekly Challenge #218: "White on Black on Found"
This week's challenge is an option.
The challenge is to do a white on black tile or zentangle inspired piece of art - using a white pen on black paper.  HOWEVER, i know that not everyone has access to those art tools.  
So, there's also the option of creating a tangled piece on a found object instead or in addition to white on black.

personally, i love the look of the white on black tiles, but i never seem to have the patience for them because there's a lot more 'finessing' of the gel pens, i find.  It seems that the ink will flow better if you almost 'dab' the gel onto the page, and then move very slowly.  Which, in hindsight, may be a good thing when it comes to creating a tile.  I find the white on black to be quite challenging.

Hope ya like it.

Challenge #217

So I am guessing i am into a circle thing right now. Wish I had some circle tiles but i have not bought them yet. :) So here is my design for this weekly challenge. The rules were here:

Weekly Challenge #217: "Duo Tangle - DEX vs BUNZO.... THIRTYFIVE!!"

"so what's with this week's challenge name?" I hear you asking.  I love me a good duotangle,  they're probably my favourite type of challenge because they get people thinking in different ways.

A duotangle is a term coined here at CasaDiva that means a tile or ZIA that is created using ONLY TWO TANGLES and their tangleations. 

So, for this week the challenge is to use ONLY Dex and Bunzo.   

Well here is mine, hope you like it. :)

I'm Back. Challenge 216

I have been away for awhile. Just haven't felt two crafty or creative lately. My dad has been pretty sick again and I haven't been sleeping well. Plus a whole lot of stress at work has just kinda wiped me out lately. But when I saw this challenge I though lets get back into this. :)

Here is the challenge:
Weekly Challenge #216: "UMT - Brella by Bunny Wright, CZT"
This month's tangle is called "'Brella" and it's by fellow Canadian CZT Bunny Wright!!  you can see the step outs for this tangle here

I immediately wondered what it would look like as a sphere shape. So I started playing. Here is what I came up with. I hope you like it. :) The shading didn't show up a whole lot but you can see it some. :)
