Zentangle Diva Challenge 332

 Fun Challenge from the Diva this week however maybe should have waited until I was not so tired.  Blurry eyed not always the best time to tangle.  Then again if I didn't do it now probably would not have gotten back to it this week. 

Challenge was to use 2 squares as your string and tangle from there.  I decided to stack my squares on top of each other - sort of - it's the stacked look that I want your eye to perceive.  So wanted to start over - didn't quite come out as I'd first intended but since there are no mistakes in Zentangle no do over required.  Might play with another idea if time allows.

Diva Challenge #330 Zentangle Plates

The Diva Challenge this week,  Zentangle Plates is from guest blogger Jeanette Clawson.  Jeanette offered two ways to complete the challenge, one is to draw the circular strings using 4 tiles for a Mosaic Mandala or to complete just one tile.

I enjoy creating mandalas so chose the 4 tile option.  Rather than have each tile be the same I decided for a more mosaic look using different tangles on each tile.  I did make an exception for the center section and the outer most ring, those are the same on each tile. That provided just the right amount of continuity for my eye.

Golven - Fiore - Puf - Hi-Cs

Rounding It Up - Ribn - Trivet - Hi-Cs

Yew-Dee - Quib - (made it up) -  Hi-Cs

'Nzeppel - Asgard - Ditto - Hi-Cs

There were so many ways to display the mosaic -
but this one appealed to my eye more than the others.

One more Mandala -  at our monthly Zentangle Club last week, the project was a mandala drawn on Kraft-Tex Fabric Paper and then affixed to a cork trivet.

Diva Challenge #318 - Diptych

Diva Challenge this week is to create a Diptych - the broad definition is two panels joined by a hinge, often times the panels are mirrored.

Here is my rendition on a Zendala tile.
