Todays prompt is to first to find some stuff around the house and arrange it on the tile. Than trace the shapes with pencil onto the tile and so we have the string! And tangle! I gathered my stuff in the kitchen. A piece from my “kitchen aid”, a spaghetti-fork, a cookie-cutter in starshape und the handle of a fork. So I got an interessting string:)

Today I had a really peaceful and calming tangle evening, enjoying every deliberate stroke and I really went out of my comfort zone and passed the border! Meaning I stuck with the “elegance of limit” and just ignored the “border” of the string.

here you can see  my string, you probably can see where I passed the border and where I stayed with the string! I made a wonderful experience tonight with that tile!

… Tracy Verdugo.

Today we are invited to let ourself inspires by artist we admire and let his or her style shine through in the Zentangle drawing. Tracy Verdugo is a mixed media artis I really admire, I love the way she uses the colors and I love her attitude. I already made a mini online class from her and hat a lot of fun. One thing I mostly do when I paint is first of all painting the background, just making marks and layers with all different kind of brushes, paints and all kind of materials that I can use to put paint on. It is a totally intuitiv and unplanned process. When I think I am done with this I am looking what the background gives me for opportunities to go on painting, sometimes I only take small parts out of that whole background piece. And that is what I did here, I painted a big sheet of watercolorpaper and then I cuted it into small pieces and started to tangle on it. I had a great quality time doing this!

 

 

Tombow Penbrushes are dancing the “Diva Dance”

Today I was experimenting with one of my three Tombow Dual Penbrushes. Looking how they act with water in different ways. Me and my Tombow, we had a great time together dancing the Diva Dance. I loved this tangle from the very first moment I saw it. So I had not to think about what tangle to use for a Monotangle.

When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It‘s to enjoy each step along the way. Wayne Dyer

That’s it:)

“UMT – Orbs-la-Dee by Anneke van Dam”

like every first Monday of the month the Weekly Diva Challenge is a Use My Tangle Challenge – this month’s  Orbs-la-Dee by Anneke van Dam, and you can see the step outs here .

It feels like the last challenge has been a long time ago and I am very happy that the Diva is back from christmas holidays I had a great time tangling Orbs-la-Dee, it is a fun an very relaxing tangle, I didn’t know this tangle so far, and I am happy to know now.

So have a nice weekend everyone and thanks for visiting my blog, I appreciate that so much.

 

Straightforward

well not really. It was not so easy as it sounded – for me.

The challenge for today drawing a string only using straight lines. What kind of tangles is up to us, organic- or gridtangles or everything else.

There are many crooked lines and one straight line. Which is the line of truth? Why the straight line? Truth is always the shortest distance between two points. Sun Myung Moon

I did a very straight string and then cose kind of a mix between straight and border-tangles and also organic-tangles.
