Tangle challenges

Diva #294

This week's Diva challenge uses Reticula and Fragments from the Zentangle Primer. I've been fortunate to own this book and the accompanying journal. After a few months of using both regularly I've slacked off. This week's challenge has been a nice reminder to get both books out again and get drawing.

Here are my tiles. The first uses a fairly standard square grid while the second uses reticula R-E 3. Some of the fragments are from the book while a couple invented themselves as I drew.

After a break from drawing it's been a pleasant evening getting back into it.

Diva #293

A few days ago I drew a tile for Diva #293 featuring Keeko. I use Keeko quite a bit. This time I drew a grid first then filled it with Keeko. Normally I'm quite free-handed with it. The centre is a fragment (square fragment  X7?).

Made by Joey 

Last week the Made by Joey was a finish my tile challenge with Mooka in the corner. Mooka appears in a lot of my work, often by accident. My pen just likes those shapes! The Mooka is surrounded by Pixiote. The green interior is a water colour pencil.

Thanks for dropping by.

Lovely work my dear! My eye was particularly drawn to your Joey piece. I just love the composition and how your Pixioze has a bit of "air" around it. Then I had a little giggle where you wrote how Mooka often appears without intention. That happens to me all the time;-) Thanks so much for your sweet comments on my blog this week. You are truly appreciated.
