Weekly Challenge: Non-dominant Hand - take two

This Weeks Challenge was once again to use our non-dominant hand, for the string, pen work and shading.  The diva shows no mercy in her efforts to challenge us.  As a faithful follower I complied and was surprised that it was somewhat easier than the first time she had us try this.  It's good to know that if I had my right hand tied behind my back I could still tangle.   It's good to stretch your comfort zone from time to time.

Tangle Journal 2012 - Week five

Fun with flowers this week in the tangle Journal.  It's interesting to see the variety of interpretations of this journal starter pattern.  I had a little extra fun by playing with this in my photo editor and making a negative of my design as seen below. 

Comments are always welcome.

Tangle Journal 2012 - Week four

As the days on the calender keep flipping over, I am trying to keep up with the Tangle Journal project.  Today I finished week 4, and I enjoyed some wonderful "zen" time as I lost myself in this mandala.  Hope you like it!

Weekly Challenge - Purple Haze

The Diva's Challenge this week is "Purple Haze".  We just have to add the color purple to our zentangle or ZIA.  I chose to do two challenges at the same time, combining this with my Journal week #3 in my 2012 "Tangle Journal".  This is a tangleation of Puff, by Carole Ohl.
 I rather like how this came out, and it was fun to add the touch of purple (which looks more like blue in this photo).  Thanks for another fun Challenge Laura, I hope you are feeling better soon.

Tangle Journal 2012 - week two

Week Two of the Journal is a pretty flower,  I tried to add a border but had some difficulty keeping my curly things the same size.  Maybe it adds character, or honesty or just a little frill.  It was fun anyway.

Tangle Journal 2012 - the first week

 As a Christmas present to myself I bought Genevieve Crabe's Tangle Journal (as shown above).  She has a different tangle starter for each week of the year, and hopefully I'll be able to keep up and do each one in 2012.   It is a neat way to get started tangling each week.  Hopefully others that are doing this will post their results as well.
