Tangle challenges

Thanks for all the comments and positive feedback on my blog and my drawing. Your comments make my day. It's nice that people enjoy photos of my silly cat Arthur. He is a wonder. 

We have two cats. The other is Luna. She is very much my daughter Moo's cat in personality and person preference: aloof to most people but friendly to a select few. Luna selects me occasionally. 

Diva #326 - How do I fit in?

This week's challenge was to use 'Nzeppel AND think about a time in our lives where we didn't fit in.

I drew two tiles for this challenge. The first is about a time when I didn't fit in, no matter how I tried. It was a difficult time in my life. I found it difficult to draw the tile too. The first part, the part representing myself, was OK to draw. Measured, careful, keeping myself in the box, within the lines. But then the parts representing where I was working was much harder. My take offs and landings were not clean and my lines wobbled. Shading was something I did quickly to get the tile done.

The second tile is about where I am now.  The tile speaks for itself.

A message to anyone who doesn't fit into their workplace or home place - do the work to get yourself out of there. It is sooooooo worth it to be free.

This was a finish my tangle challenge featuring Naida. I added Diva Dance, Golven and Sandswirl.

More photos from Tasmania

Needed to finish this post on a happy note so I've put some photos I took at Trowunna Wildlife Park. The kangaroos were very tame. Guests were given bags of food for them so we could get close. I see kangaroos most days of the week but never get tired of seeing them or being close. 

Have a great week and thanks for dropping by.

Fascinating. The actual mood conveyed by your two tiles is palpably different. The second exudes joie d'vivre (sp?). Lovely. I'm glad you emerged from the tunnel.

Lovely pics of the kangaroos.
Thank you for showing two totally different tiles:indeed the second one speaks for itself. Congratulations Karen.
Also an nice contribution for Joey's challenge!

It is interesting that you really went back and touched on that pain. Living, or even visiting the past, is something that I don't do. Quite the contrast.

Forgot to say your Tangle for Joey's was neat too!

Absolutely correct! It is Nzeppel in all its styles...well, most of them, and it is beautiful. Hook!

I do love the transformation of your Diva pieces and the Joey piece is wonderfully composed. Those kangaroos are delightful. Thanks for sharing.

Love your reflections about not fitting in, and your two tiles are so very perfect for this challenge. Love them both.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts! Love the tiles, yes, both of them. My daughter always said that my cat Tedah only loved one person in this world: me. I have had more cats before her, but she is the most special, memorable.
