Tangle challenges

No blogging for me last week but lots of drawing.

The no blogging was because I spent a couple of days last week in Adelaide (a city over 1,000km away from my home) presenting at a conference. The conference was about how teachers use ICT and I was there to show people how to use a particular application.

This was the first time I'd ever presented at a conference before, of any type. It was a huge honour to be asked and a massive experience for me to actually do it. It also represents a new direction for me in teaching. These days I'm becoming good at teaching teachers how to use computers. This is not a direction I would ever have expected or thought possible. Very interesting times ahead for me.

So, no time to post but I have been drawing.

Diva #337 - Artoo

I liked Laura's triangular tile this week but don't like using them myself - I'd rather go big than small. However, I did use the triangle as a string. Here's my tile. It's on a renaissance tile as I'm running low on normal tiles - my next order should be here soon.

Made by Joey this week

This week's challenge was to use a 3D cube as a string as well as Betweed. Not sure that I like my result but here it is anyway.

This is final week of the Tangle Mosaic challenge. Patience was something I struggled with in this challenge. Happy with the end result though.

Other drawing

I've been following Eni Oken for some time and have downloaded some of her lessons. This week I played around with her Tangled Ropes lesson.  This was lots of fun. Here are some examples.

My intention of adding to this every day was not realistic. That's OK. I do use it a couple of times a week. I find it good for focussing on the Zen of Zentangle - the process and the focus and the relaxation. Here's something I did last week. Dinner got delayed that night.

Have a great week and thanks for dropping by.

You certainly did have a productive week of drawing;-) I love how your mosaic turned out. My favorite pieces have to be the twisting ropes. Well done!
