Hefty Hack with tne new Official Tangle: Drawings”

It’s the Hefty Hack – technique! Materials you need: watersoluble markers like Tombows, a brush and water and also a plastic bag.

Now scribble some color on the plastic bag. Wet parts of your paper with your brush and then place the bag on the water with the color faced down. The colors react with the water. Now the bag can be lifted up and you have your gorgeous watercolor background. Let it completely dry and then tangle.

I used the new Tangle “Drawings”, which was introduced at last years ZenAgain workshop, because on this weeks challenge #299 the Diva asked us to use the new official tangle “Drawings”. You can see the stepouts here.

So I combined the Zenuari’s prompt with the diva’s challenge. The weird thing, if I wouldn’t know that I tangled this, I would believe someone else did, it is totally not the style I am used to tangle and I am not sure if I like it:) But however – isn’t that that the awesome thing about Zentangle – you never no the outcome – and sometimes it really surprises me. Moreover, what will it look like to me in a couple of weeks or month? Isn’t that absolutely fantastic.

So thanks you for visiting my blog and have a relaxed and beautiful Sunday evening

 

 

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.

That’s it:)

“Guest Post: Monotangle Trees”

This weeks challenge # 246  is a guest post from Dilip Patel the first CZT from India. Dilip and his wife Malathi are one of the rare CZT couples in the world.  I really love this challenge, maybe that is the reason why my Monotangle-Trees run a little out of control and have gone wild:)

The challenge is about creating a Monotangle Tree, so having a whole Zentangle® – Forest with all the trees. What a great idea, that will give a lot of power to the environment.

A single collective directed thought is all it takes to change the world.
Lynne McTaggart

I love nature, and there is a reason why we call it Mother earth! So everyone should show respect and care about. I get most of my creative ideas from trees, they have so many different faces and can tell me so much stories. I go for a walk through the forest almost everyday enjoying every breath.

Well, my tangle made a little bit its one way. I actually just started my mono tangle trees one a light colored background, that was my plan. But somehow my trees had another plan, and some hours and layers of paint later it had a complete different look. So it turned out a ZIA, not my planned Monotangle. I hope that is okay for that challenge. Sometimes my emotions overrun my mind, which I really appreciate, so I am pleased with my outcome, even though I have the feeling, it is not finally done, but it is for this moment.

So thank you Dilip Patel for that inspiring Challenge and thanks to the Diva making it possible.
