This week's Diva challenge was to use the new Tangle Ellish. I took the Diva's advice and looked at some examples of this tangle on the Zentangle app. But then I had to stop looking because (1) I was being put off by how intricate many of the tiles were and (2) I wanted to do this challenge with fresh eyes.
My first tile is not that great. I have included it as I received lots of positive comments from people when I've shared mistake tiles in the past. So, here's tile 1. I kept it simple with Jetties, which are not a Tangle that I use very often.
For my next tile I chose one of my coloured tiles. I coloured a batch of these weeks ago. I added Antidots and Mooka. After doing this tile, I think I'd like to spend some time on the weekend exploring this new Tangle some more and seeing what other Tangles it matches with. The Tangles 'dillo, Ta Da, and Tamisolo come to mind.
Not much this week because I've been doing other things. I did submit a tile last week for Adele Bruno's It's a String Thing challenge. The feature tangles were Skye and Antidots. Skye is hard work but worth it.
Moo and I decided to do some more cake decorating on the weekend. We had such a blast the the decorating course the weekend before that we wanted to keep going.
Our cakes are going to my school tomorrow as part of The Biggest Morning Tea which is a Cancer Council fundraiser.
My cake is the one with the dots. Moo's is the one with the stars.
Apologies for not visiting your blogs
Normally I spend time visiting other people's blogs, particularly around Diva Day. Lately that hasn't been happening. Very sorry for that and sorry that my absence may continue for a bit. There's been a bit going in the family which I'm not going to blog about. That's calmer now but it is end of semester report time. Being a humanities and English teacher, the marking work load is big. And I'm trying to get back into the gym.
So, many apologies for not stopping by to comment on your blogs. I am probably still looking, just not saying hi.
Have a good week.
