This week's Diva challenge was to incorporate more black into a tile than we'd normally use.
I did that with my first tile, which uses Sandy Steen Batholomew's Mumsy and Skein tangles. I then did the same tangles and design but on a black tile. What do you think? I rarely ever use black tiles, so this was a big step out of my comfort zone.
Once I had my black tiles out, I thought I'd do another one. This one features two favourite tangles - Flux and Printemps.
I haven't been doing much drawing lately. Lots of other things going on. I did find time to do this ZIA. The basis is Fengle with favourites (Purk, Shattuck, Tipple, Flux, Puf and Dex). I've drawn on a A5 300gsm card stock, which is my go-to paper when I don't want to use a Zentangle tile. Nice and simple.
Last Sunday was Cake Day. Not for you? It was for my daughter Moo and I.
We spent the day (from 9.30am to 6.30pm) learning how to decorate a cake. This was part birthday and part Mother's Day present.
I'm not a cake decorator and have no real desire to become one. However, I do like learning new creative skills and I do enjoy cooking. Although no cooking was involved in this occasion, I think there might be some cake cooking in my future.
I've written a page on this blog about it and where I've put more photos. Here are just a couple.
Have a great week. Thanks for your comments and for simply dropping by.
