Challenge 88 - Use the new Official Tangle IX

When I first saw this pattern, I really liked what folks were doing with it - thought I would really like it.  I still do but I need to work with it a bit more.  Started several tiles but the flow was not happening.  I let things rest for awhile.  Not sure why but when I went back to work on some of the unfinished tiles - I instead picked up a piece of round cork from another project.  I used a black Fine Point Permapaque Opaque Marker  - different but I like it.

Diva Challenge #87

Challenge #87 is revisiting a challenge from last year dedicated to the International Day of Peace on September 21st and inspired by the website Pinwheels for Peace.  Once again the challenge is to create a Pinwheel - Zentangle style.

Not sure this one is quite finished - I see all that white space just waiting for more tangles.  Too often that's exactly what I do and then end up not pleased.  Another attempt to leave some space - so for now I'll set with it but can't promise that it won't reappear with a bit more added to it.
