Zentangle Drawing: Marasu, Coaster, Strircles, PokeLeaf

Zentangle Drawing Challenge

Occasionally some friends put out a challenge for folks to make their representation of their idea. It is Marie’s turn to choose the challenge this week. This week is the Tangled Thursday – getting back on track. Marie says “Since I haven’t been drawing all summer and don’t even know when my zentangle-ing gear is,  the challenge is just pick up your supplies and create a zentangle related drawing.  That’s it!  Any size, any patterns.  Fun shape or square.  On paper or on anything you want.  Totally open.   No rules, other than you have to use zentangle patterns in some way.” So this is a ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) Getting Back on Track with Zentangle Drawing.  I used 4 new tangles for me!  You might have noticed I like learning new tangles!! :)

Zentangle Enticed Me

Zentangle has become popular the last couple of years and I have been intrigued and just starting put my attention to it. I did want to try some one that are new to me – so above is my zentangle related drawing ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected!

Zentangle Drawing

I have a list of tangles that intrigue me that I want to try – and all 4 of these caught my attention! I think the 4 go pretty well together. With soft eyes I like it (without looking too hard). Just how it happened!  And the black isn’t perfect … but it is there.  Yesterday Susan had her major surgery and is doing well!! Whew!!!

Which Tangle is Which?

Marasu is that so cool pattern in the middle that is a coil.  I have seen some stunning tiles using this tangle!!  To the right in the arc is Coaster.  It looks sort of like umbrellas or Ferris wheels or fans.  The top right with the black and white exchanging in the circles and stripes is Strircles.  Then the bottom left is a garland of PokeLeaf.  Usually PokeLeaf rises up in a bouquet but I liked the idea of a vine draping across.  I was going to shade the Marasu and Coaster which I drew first.  But when I put in Strirckes, shading didn’t seem right.  :) And there you have it!

I am always a little shocked when I see my ZIA blown up – all these spaces then show up and how shaky the shapes are … but I wanted to get it into this Tangled Thursday challenge. I am still creating these ZIAs lying down while working on an Art Card size (2.5×3.5″).  So perhaps not too bad given that.

I have been slowly sharing my other ones on Facebook. I changed to using Art Card size (2.5×3.5″) since I have a bunch cut out already from good quality paper. It might not be as smooth as it should be. But I am learning! And my studio is getting more organized so maybe I can cut some new paper!! I can’t wait to find my black paper and do some cutting!

Thank you for stopping by!! I LOVE comments!!! ~ Diane Clancy

My DuoTangle Phicops and DivaDance Challenge Entry

My Diva DuoTangle Phicops and DivaDance Challenge Entry

DuoTangle Phicops and DivaDance Challenge Entry, Pen, © Diane Clancy

DuoTangle Phicops and DivaDance: Phicops, DivaDance, Diva-Dance Waltz, Diva-Dance Foxtrot, Diva-Dance Rock ‘n Roll

DuoTangle Phicops and DivaDance Challenge

Each week the Diva puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. This week is the Weekly Challenge #185: “DuoTangle – Phicops vs DivaDance”. So here is what the Diva says this week “A duotangle is a term coined here, at Casa Diva, for a tile or piece that uses ONLY two tangles and their variations. … The challenge is to use ONLY the two tangles Phicops (created by my uber sexy hubby b-rad) and DivaDance in a duotangle.” So this is a little ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using Phicops and DivaDance!

Zentangle Enticed Me

Zentangle has become popular the last couple of years and I have been intrigued and just starting put my attention to it. I am putting one foot in front of the other at times still! And for those of you who really read this … my partner is in an expected surgery right at this moment.  So above is my Phicops and DivaDance Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected!

Which Tangle is Which?

Phicops is the 2 tangles that sort of look like shells. DivaDance has 3 variations – all of which I used here.  The Diva-Dance Waltz is the top middle.  The Diva-Dance Foxtrot are the lines in the right hand side.  The Diva-Dance Rock ‘n Roll is the part on the right side.

I am always a little shocked when I see my ZIA blown up – but this isn’t so bad this time – I tried to make sure I made the spaces pretty black … but I wanted to get it into the Diva’s challenge. I am still creating these ZIAs lying down while working on an Art Card size (2.5×3.5″). So perhaps not too bad given that. I have been slowly sharing my other ones on Facebook. I changed to using Art Card size (2.5×3.5″) since I have a bunch cut out already from good quality paper. It might not be as smooth as it should be. But I am learning!

And my studio is getting more organized so maybe I can cut some new paper!! I can’t wait to find my black paper and do some cutting! One thing after enough keeps getting in the way of that. But stuff has started to clear out of my studio again so maybe there is hope!! (My studio always gets filled up when there are projects in the house that need a place to dump a bunch of stuff for awhile!! LOL!!) Thank you for stopping by!! I LOVE comments!! ~ Diane Clancy

ING

ING Challenge Entry, Pen, © Diane Clancy

ING: ING, Pepper, Ahh, KnightsBridge, Florz, Cat-Kin and some Swirl

ING Challenge

Each week the Diva puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. This week is the Weekly Challenge #179: “New Official Tangle: ING by Molly”. So here is what the Diva says this week “This week the newest “official” was released by Zentangle HQ in their latest newsletter and if you’re a regular here you will have anticipated that this week’s challenge would be to try the new tangle.” So this is a little ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using ING!

Zentangle Enticed Me

Zentangle has become popular the last couple of years and I have been intrigued and just starting put my attention to it. I am putting one foot in front of the other at times still! So above is my ING Zentangle Tangle ZIA.  I had a lot of fun making these 5 INGs – putting 2 of them behind.  Some of them are not quite right … but I tried a lot :) This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected! Did you notice I did some shading … it just flowed out for the 2nd time :)

Which Tangle is Which?

ING is the 5 tangles that sort of look like folded paper. Then on the various planes of ING I have different tangles.  Usually I detailed them all … but not today.  There is some Pepper (the first one that sticks out is not quite right) .. then Ahh, KnightsBridge, Florz, Cat-Kin and I am not sure which swirl I used.  I am way too busy trying to catch up on the delayed things getting ready for Susan’s surgery now!!!

I am always a little shocked when I see my ZIA blown up – but this isn’t so bad this time … but I wanted to get it into the Diva’s challenge. I am still creating these ZIAs lying down while working on an Art Card size (2.5×3.5″). So perhaps not too bad given that. I have been slowly sharing my other ones on Facebook. I changed to using Art Card size (2.5×3.5″) since I have a bunch cut out already from good quality paper. It might not be as smooth as it should be. But I am learning!

My Diva X-Did Challenge Entry Inverted

By mistake … of course one of the gifts of Zentangle … I inverted my challenge entry.  I like it much better so I am sharing this with you also.

X-Did

X-Did Challenge Entry Inverted, Pen, © Diane Clancy

X-Did Inverted: X-Did, Featherfall, Floor Too, Florz

X-Did Challenge

Each week the Diva puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. This week is the Weekly Challenge #183: “UMT – X-Did by Annette Carlo”. So here is what the Diva says this week “f you are a regular here, you’ll know that (generally speaking) the first Monday of every month is a Use My Tangle challenge where the challenge is to use a tangle created by one of you!  This week’s tangle is called “X-did” by Annette Carlo, and you can find the step outs HERE. I like the look of this tangle, and i think there’s a real potential for some sweet tangleations.  I love a geometric pattern. ” So this is a little ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using X-Did!

Zentangle Enticed Me

Zentangle has become popular the last couple of years and I have been intrigued and just starting put my attention to it. I am putting one foot in front of the other at times still! 2 bats at night mostly put me over the edge!!! So above is my X-Did Zentangle Tangle ZIA.  This was hard to fit in at all … not that happy with it but it uses X-Did.  I meant to do the Florz at a 45 degree angle but it didn’t happen.  I am much happier with the inverted version :)  This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected!

Which Tangle is Which?

Featherfall is the tangle in the middle that looks like a feather – this is a new one for me.  X-Did is also new – that is the tangles to the right and left of Featherfall.  I don’t think I did it right but it was the best I could do at the moment!!  The one on the right is Floor Too.  That is also new to me and I think has some real potential for me.  Florz is the one on the left and I meant to angle it but this is how it came out. I am lucky I got this done at all … since I am still trying to catch up since our marriage – I am way too busy trying to catch up on the delayed things!!!

I am always a little shocked when I see my ZIA blown up – but this isn’t so bad this time … but I wanted to get it into the Diva’s challenge. I am still creating these ZIAs lying down while working on an Art Card size (2.5×3.5″). So perhaps not too bad given that. I have been slowly sharing my other ones on Facebook.

Stripes: Nipa, Dinesawr, Arundel, Chartz

Stripes Challenge

Each week the Diva puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. This week is the Weekly Challenge #179: “Stripes”. So here is what the Diva says this week “This is not the first time we’ve done this stripes challenge – but there something nice about revisiting a challenge. So this week, try out some stripes in your challenge piece.  Vertical, horizontal, diagonal, crossways, whatever you like!” So this is a little ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) by Stripes!

Zentangle Enticed Me

Zentangle has become popular the last couple of years and I have been intrigued and just starting put my attention to it. I am putting one foot in front of the other at times still! So above is my Stripes Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected!  Did you notice I did some shading … it just flowed out for the first time  :)

Which Tangle is Which?

Nipa is the tangle on the top left that looks like bubbles on a river.  Dinesawr is right below it – it sure looks like dinosaur, snake or lizard skin. Arundel is new to me.  I never saw it before or tried it – I like it quite a bit!!  Arundel is the big bubbles across the middle.  The bottom right is Chartz with the bubbles in the triangles.. I am lucky I got this done at all … since last Saturday was my marriage, I am way too busy trying to catch up on the delayed things!!!

I am always a little shocked when I see my ZIA blown up – but this isn’t so bad this time … but I wanted to get it into the Diva’s challenge. I am still creating these ZIAs lying down while working on an Art Card size (2.5×3.5″). So perhaps not too bad given that. I have been slowly sharing my other ones on Facebook.

Water: Agua, Leau, Msst

Water Challenge

Each week the Diva puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. This week is the Weekly Challenge #179: “Water”. So here is what the Diva says this week “Seeing as i spent the last five days in the water, i thought it’d be a good theme for a challenge this week.” So this is a little ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) by Water!

Zentangle Enticed Me

Zentangle has become popular the last couple of years and I have been intrigued and just starting put my attention to it. I am putting one foot in front of the other at times still! So above is my Water Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected!

Which Tangle is Which?

Aqua is the tangle that looks like waves on the bottom. Leau is the one that looks like water drops on the upper right part.  Msst is the strings with drops of water dripping from it across the top.  I am lucky I got this done at all … tomorrow is my marriage so pretty busy!

I am always a little shocked when I see my ZIA blown up – all these spaces then show up and wiggly lines and here just how much it doesn’t look like what I was trying for … but I wanted to get it into the Diva’s challenge. I am still creating these ZIAs lying down while working on an Art Card size (2.5×3.5″). So perhaps not too bad given that. I have been slowly sharing my other ones on Facebook.

2 New Tangles Challenge Entry for Tangled Thursday

My 2 New Tangles Challenge Entry for Tangled Thursday

2 New Tangles

2 New Tangles Zentangle Challenge Entry, Pen, © Diane Clancy

2 New Tangles: Facade, Boo-Kee, Earth Rising

2 New Tangles Challenge

Occasionally some friends put out a challenge for folks to make their representation of their idea. It is my turn (for the first time) to choose the challenge this week.  This week is the Tangled Thursday – Duos. So I say “here is my challenge … Use 2 tangles that are new to you.  Feel free to use other tangles too.” So this is a ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using 2 New Tangles – well actually 3! All 3 tangles are new for me!

Zentangle Enticed Me

Zentangle has become popular the last couple of years and I have been intrigued and just starting put my attention to it. I did want to try some one that are new to me – so above is my 2 New Tangles ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected!

Using 2 New Tangles

I have a list of tangles that intrigue me that I want to try – and all three of these caught my attention!  I think the 3 (and 1 variation) go pretty well together.  With soft eyes I like it (without looking too hard). Just how it happened!

Which Tangle is Which?

Boo-Kee is the tangle that dances across the center – the little balls with triangles off it.  I looked at all the images I could find using it and sort of tried a variation (or maybe a variation of a variation).  Boo-Kee goes from bottom left to top right.  To the right is Facade.  There are no steps to show how to do it but I think I have the general idea.  I can see that it would have been better with more circles behind circles – maybe next time. The top left is still Facade but a variation of it – reversing the dark and light.  That would rock with more layered circles and maybe I would make that whole part bigger to have more room to work. Earth Rising the the big black and white triangle on the middle bottom (with lots of little triangles and half moons in it).  I did it sideways from the directions because I saw a tile that way.  I like it and can see more space would help me tangle better. And there you have it!

I am always a little shocked when I see my ZIA blown up – all these spaces then show up and how shaky the shapes are … but I wanted to get it into this Tangled Thursday challenge. I am still creating these ZIAs lying down while working on an Art Card size (2.5×3.5″). Also, my eyes have been spinning some on working on these small tiles. So perhaps not too bad given that.

I have been slowly sharing my other ones on Facebook. I changed to using Art Card size (2.5×3.5″) since I have a bunch cut out already from good quality paper. It might not be as smooth as it should be. But I am learning! And my studio is getting more organized so maybe I can cut some new paper!! I can’t wait to find my black paper and do some cutting!

UMT - MacDee

UMT – MacDee Zentangle Challenge Entry, Pen, © Diane Clancy

UMT – MacDee: Yinx, Scarabou, MacDee

UMT – MacDee Challenge

Each week the Diva puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. This week is the Weekly Challenge #179: “UMT – MacDee by Anneke Van Dam”. So here is what the Diva says this week “This week is the Use My Tangle challenge, and this week’s tangle to try out is called “MacDee” you can see the step-outs here”  So this is a little ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using MacDee!!

Zentangle Enticed Me

Zentangle has become popular the last couple of years and I have been intrigued and just starting put my attention to it. I am putting one foot in front of the other at times still! So above is my UMT – MacDee. Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected!

Which Tangle is Which?

Scarabou is the tangle that sort of looks like a flower and starts on the bottom right and goes to the left (or vice versa).  Yinx is the one that looks like wheat on the middle to upper right. The tangle that looks like plaid is MacDee – both on the right and the left.

I am always a little shocked when I see my ZIA blown up – all these spaces then show up and wiggly lines and here just how much it doesn’t look like what I was trying for … but I wanted to get it into the Diva’s challenge. I am still creating these ZIAs lying down while working on an Art Card size (2.5×3.5″). So perhaps not too bad given that. I have been slowly sharing my other ones on Facebook. I changed to using Art Card size (2.5×3.5″) since I have a bunch cut out already from good quality paper. It might not be as smooth as it should be. But I am learning!

And my studio is getting more organized so maybe I can cut some new paper!! I can’t wait to find my black paper and do some cutting! One thing after enough keeps getting in the way of that. But stuff has started to clear out of my studio again so maybe there is hope!! (My studio always gets filled up when there are projects in the house that need a place to dump a bunch of stuff for awhile!! LOL!!) Thank you for stopping by!! I LOVE comments!! ~ Diane Clancy

Duotangle by the Letter

“Be like Bijou” Zentangle Challenge Entry, Pen, © Diane Clancy

“Be like Bijou”: Glacé, Euca

Be like Bijou Challenge

Each week the Diva puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. This week is the Weekly Challenge #179: “Be like Bijou”. So here is what the Diva says this week “This week’s challenge is to Be like Bijou and to try your hand at something a little small.  Bijou tiles are 2″x2″ so try to limit your tile to that size!  This size is also sometimes referred to as Twinchies on the interwebs.” Bijou is a little snail that came over from France and makes Zentangles … So this is a little ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) being inspired by Bijou!!

Zentangle has become popular the last couple of years and I have been intrigued and just starting put my attention to it.  I have seen a little about this Bijou snail … who works on 2″x2″ tiles.  This is a great challenge for me!!!  I have been using my art cards of 2.5″x3.5″ – so all I need to do is make a square in the center!! Yay!   I am used to working small and so I am just making mine simpler than usual. So above is my Be like Bijou Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected!

Which Tangle is Which?

Glacé is the tangle on the left that looks like boxes … each time I have looked at the steps, I get overwhelmed … but I have wanted to try it for awhile.  So I decided today was that day!  I almost started using color and then didn’t.  The variations one can do look interesting.  The tangle on the right is Euca … there is a story that the creator shares about looking at bushes and being inspired.  I love that it looks like flowers!!

I am always a little shocked when I see my ZIA blown up – all these spaces then show up and here just how much it doesn’t look like what I was trying for … but I wanted to get it into the Diva’s challenge. I am still creating these ZIAs lying down while working on an Art Card size (2.5×3.5″). So perhaps not too bad given that. I have been slowly sharing my other ones on Facebook. I changed to using Art Card size (2.5×3.5″) since I have a bunch cut out already from good quality paper. It might not be as smooth as it should be. But I am learning!

And my studio is getting more organized so maybe I can cut some new paper!! I can’t wait to find my black paper and do some cutting! One thing after enough keeps getting in the way of that. But stuff has started to clear out of my studio again so maybe there is hope!! (My studio always gets filled up when there are projects in the house that need a place to dump a bunch of stuff for awhile!! LOL!!) Thank you for stopping by!! I LOVE comments!! ~ Diane Clancy
