Negative Space Challenge

Occasionally some friends put out a challenge for folks to make their representation of their idea. This week is the Tangled Thursday – Negative Space. So here is what Heather says “This week’s challenge was from Marie at Daisy’s Book Journal, to use negative space. Please drop by Marie’s blog this week and leave her a message of encouragement.  The river behind her house is flooding and it’s expected to be bad.  It flooded two years ago and that was supposed to have been a 300 year storm.  This could easily be worse.”  Marie, I sure hope things are better for you by now!!!  So this is a ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using Negative Space!

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 hope you can see that my negative space is a heart – so above is my Negative Space Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected!

Using Negative Space

About half these tangles I have used before.  Rather than use new tangles (which I usually go for), I was focused on using tangles that would create an edge  – but without their being an edge tangle themselves! The new ones (to me) are Jetties, Barberpole, Cruffle and Bunzo. I am always looking to figure out new (to me) tangles so I can practice some. I penciled in a heart and then started to figure out how to make an edge without looking like I was making an edge.  Also, I have an art card that I had started trying something on and gave up pretty quickly (ie got a new card).  So this one had 2 places that I had started designs so I decided to use it and make the old part hidden into this ZIA.  I think it worked pretty well.  So I just started, created with a tangle and I would just plan the next tangle I was going to use in this process. Just how it happened!

Which Tangle is Which?

The right side of the heart is Rixty … and then it angles over and dances down on the right.  (I will share the order that I created this.)  The top part of the heart is Barberpole.  And I gave it another turn so it wasn’t just the top of the heart that had an angle.  Next I created Jetties which created the left side of the heart.  It also hide a design I had tried earlier. I am pretty happy with the Jetties!  Then I made Bunzo in the top right, to the right of Rixty.  I had seen a Bunzo flower I love and I tried to make this like that – while also covering the other design I had made.  Somewhat successful. After some thought I decided Cruffle would make a good bottom of the heart … and echo the Jetties too.  Lastly (and leastly), I used Kurlllz in the top left.  This is the only part I am not very happy about.  It is such a simple tangle, I have used it before … but it never comes out quite 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 (but it actually wasn’t too bad this week) … 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!! ~ Diane Clancy

My Diva BYOB Spill Entry Challenge

My Diva BYOB Spill Challenge Entry

BYOB Spill

BYOB Spill Zentangle Challenge Entry, Pen, © Diane Clancy

BYOB Spill: Walp, KnightsBridge, Ojo, Florz, Indy-Rella, Springkles, Zinger

BYOB Spill Challenge

Each week the Diva puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. This week is the Weekly Challenge #176: “B.Y.O.B”. So here is what the Diva’s blog says this week “I’m CZT Amy … This week’s challenge to you is to B.Y.O.B.—Bring Your Own Beverage—to your tangling session and utilize it in your art. … You can dip, drip, drizzle, drop, dab, sponge, spray, splatter, splash, spill, stamp, stain, pour, wipe, blot, brush, blow, and more.” So this is a ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using BYOB Spill!

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 had an art card that I started to make with Walp and I took a new one so I had this one put aside as a mistake. I figured if I was going to mess up a card with a spill, then I might as well use a mistake. I had only water nearby so I took my partner’s, Susan, V- 8 juice a put some drops on the card and then wiped it up.  So above is my BYOB Spill Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected!

Which Tangle is Which?

The sort of flowers in the upper right and upper left corners are Walp.  That is what I had started before and I was a little off, so I just filled them in.  KnightsBridge is the stream of black and white checkers from the top to the bottom in the middle.  Florz is the net on the middle left.  Ojo is the dancing path of flowers across the bottom.  Then the tangles in the middle bottom are a combination of Indy-Rella, Springkles and Zinger. I am always a little shocked when I see my ZIA blown up – all these spaces then show up (but this week less because it is basically lines except KnightsBridge) … 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!

Superimposing Strings: Sedgling, Kathy’s Dilemma, Pepper, Umble, ‘Nzeppel

Superimposing Strings Challenge

Each week the Diva puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. This week is the Weekly Challenge #174: “Superimposing Strings”. So here is what the Diva’s blog says this week “It’s Aimee from CZT Seminar 12 and I’m here to help the Diva today on her blog with the Challenge. Your mission this time is to place a string on top of another string for your Zentangle practice.” So this is a ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using Superimposing Strings!

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 wanted to try some tangles that are new to me to practice so above is my Superimposing Strings Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected!

Which Tangle is Which?

The mushrooms at the left are Sedgling.  The triangles at the top are Kathy’s Dilemma.  The black straps with white edging are Umble.  The sort of cylinder in the middle is ‘Nzeppel – to the right of Umble. I have never used any of these before but now feel more confident with them. I think the ‘Nzeppel came out pretty much a mess, but I found easier directions after I had already drawn it.  The only one I did before is Pepper – the black and white alternating whirls on the right. I am always a little shocked when I see my ZIA blown up – all these spaces then show up (but this week less because it is basically lines) … 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.

My String 109 Challenge Entry for Tangled Thursday

My String109 Challenge Entry for Tangled Thursday

Tangle-Thurs-400

String 109: Zentangle Challenge Entry, Pen, © Diane Clancy

String 109: Enyshou, Nekton, Fescu, Quipple, Patena, Festune, Pepper, Nipa and Centipede

 

String 109 Challenge

Occasionally some friends put out a challenge for folks to make their representation of their idea. This week is the Tangled Thursday – String 109. So here is what Heather says “Elaine has challenged us with string 109 for next Thursday.” So this is a ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using String 71!

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 wanted to try some tangles that are new to me to practice so above is my String 109 Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected!

Using String 109

Almost all the tangles on this one are new to me – so the first time I have tried them.  Pepper is the only one I have used before and I have never used it to fill a space like I did on this.  I am always looking to figure out new (to me) tangles so I wanted to practice some.  Part looks sort of dense – very unplanned.  I would just plan the next tangle I was going to use in this process. Just how it happened!

Which Tangle is Which?

Enyshou is the upside down mop or plant in the upper right corner … so that filled up that whole section.  To the left of Enyshou is Neckton (in that smallish space).  The top left is sweet little Fescu waving little fronds. Underneath that is the series of what stones, surrounded by little stones, surrounded by an aura – that is Quipple.  I used that as part of a line of String 109.

The center is a web.  That is the first time I tried Patena and I would not say it is an unqualified success – but I learned a lot – about what to not do!!   To the left of Patena (the left middle side), that is Festune.  I think that pretty much came out ok. In the middle near the bottom is Nipa – the river with the rocks – I think that came out fairly well!!  The right bottom is Pepper – but stretched out to fill the whole space (since I saw that on something else).  The bottom string is Centipede … kind of a funny one but good to know.  I am always a little shocked when I see my ZIA blown up – all these spaces then show up … 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!

Duotangle – Auraknot vs Mooka Challenge

Each week the Diva puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. This week is the Weekly Challenge #172: “Duotangle Auraknot vs Mooka”. So here is what the Diva says this week ” It’s been a while since our last duotangle challenge, so this week we are going to create a tile using ONLY the two tangles Auraknot and Mooka. For those of you who are regulars here, you may know my love/hate affair with Mooka.  I just love the look of it, yet i still don’t feel that i’ve mastered it.”  So this is a ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) Duotangle – Auraknot vs Mooka!

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 wanted to try some tangles that are new to me to practice so above is my Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected!

Which Tangle is Which?

The star in the middle is Auraknot.  All the rest are Mooka – all the leafy type images. I have never used either of these before but now feel more confident with them. I am always a little shocked when I see my ZIA blown up – all these spaces then show up (but this week less because it is basically lines) … 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.

My Favorite Tangle Entry for Tangled Thursday

My Favorite Tangle Challenge Entry for Tangled Thursday

My Favorite Tangle

Favorite Tangle: Zentangle Challenge Entry, Pen, © Diane Clancy

Favorite Tangle: Giggle Vine, Raddox

My Favorite Tangle

This is Giggle Vine – a fun, silly tangle but I can’t stop using it lately.  I spun my wheels at the back of my head trying to decide what my favorite tangle is.  One of my friends and I keep learning new ones so right now Giggle Vine is in my head a lot since it is so versatile. The one on the left is the original tangle and the ones on the right are the variations I know (they are what the original creator – Moon Attic – included with the steps.  Obviously my planning of space was pretty flawed!!!  I think Giggle Vine is my current favorite because it is easy to use (I don’t have to get stressed about doing it right).  And it is so flexible to be able to fill in spaces as needed but it doesn’t take up a lot of space itself.  And there is a rhythm to using it that I enjoy!!

My Favorite Tangle and Variations

My Favorite Tangle, Variations

My Favorite Tangle: Zentangle Challenge Entry, Pen, © Diane Clancy

My Favorite Tangle Challenge

Occasionally some friends put out a challenge for folks to make their representation of their idea. This week is the Tangled Thursday – Your favourite tangle “.  So here is what Heather says “Here’s our challenge for this Thursday.  For this thursday, select a tangle you really enjoy.  Show it to us in it’s most common form and tell us why you like it and then show some variations if applicable and finally show a tile that includes this tangle.” So this is a ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using my Favorite Tangle

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 wanted to try some tangles that are new to me to practice so above is my Favorite Tangle Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected!

My Favorite Tangle

I wanted to use Giggle Vine as my Favorite Tangle.  I also wanted to try at least one tangle that I had never used.  After looking at my list that I want to try, I chose Raddox. This is a very clumsy version of Raddox!!!  But Raddox can look so lovely with the peaks and valleys echoing each other – one with lines of dots, then a line of stripes and then the dots again.  My zig zags went a little soft and never recovered … and they took up and incredible amount of space!!  Well … in Zentangle, one just works with the “problems” and uses them for more creation.

Which Tangle is Which?

As I said in the paragraph above, Raddox took a lot of room going on the diagonal like that!!  So then the Giggle Vines had to giggle their way around the Raddox.  At first I put my 2 favorite variations of Giggle Vine behind the Raddox .. but then it just begged to go over the Raddox too. So the Giggle Vine got quite tangled all around this ZIA. I am always a little shocked when I see my ZIA blown up – all these spaces then show up … 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!

My Diva Beads of Courage Challenge Entry

My Diva Courage Challenge Entry

Courage

Courage: Zentangle Challenge Entry, Pen, © Diane Clancy

Courage: SP-Eye-Ryl, Kurlllz

Courage Challenge

Each week the Diva puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. This week is the Weekly Challenge #171: “Beads of Courage”. So here is what the Diva says this week ” For those of you who don’t know, Beads of Courage is an Arts in Medicine program that supports children and their families who are dealing with Life threatening or Chronic illnesses. The child earns a bead each time they have to do something difficult or painful.” This week, be inspired by courage.  ” So this is a ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) inspired by courage!

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 wanted to try some tangles that are new to me to practice so above is my Beads of Courage Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected!

Where is the Courage?

There is a lot of complexity and some chaos in this … and it takes courage to be on the path and dance through life with so much complexity and need.  That is the courage!

Which Tangle is Which?

The banner that is connected to the beads is Kurlllz.  So both the beads and the banner are Kurlllz.  SP-Eye-Ryl is the feathery swirls that weave in and out of the banner. I am always a little shocked when I see my ZIA blown up – all these spaces then show up … 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!

My String 71 Challenge Entry for Tangled Thursday

My String 71 Challenge Entry for Tangled Thursday

Tangle-Thurs-400

String 71: Zentangle Challenge Entry, Pen, © Diane Clancy

String 71: Giggle Vine, SP-Eye-Ryl, Kurlllz

Problem with Image

I had a problem I have spent hours trying to fix. My image first went in fine and showed up great in this post as I was creating it and also as I posted it. Then in the morning I came back and there was no image!!! I tried in a whole bunch of ways!! Eventually I decided to see if it would load into my wordpress.com site … no problem at all!! So I brought the link over here and used it. I made it different sizes, added a black border … it was just so weird I can’t tell you!!

String 71 Challenge

Occasionally some friends put out a challenge for folks to make their representation of their idea. This week is the Tangled Thursday – Circles all Around “. So here is what Heather says  “Last week I challenged my friends and readers, to use string 71 to create a tile.  It was the loopiness of it that appealed to me.” So this is a ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using String 71!

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 wanted to try some tangles that are new to me to practice so above is my String 71 Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected!

Using String 71

I wanted to use 2 specific tangles – Kurlllz and SP-Eye-Ryl to practice them.  So I used them in this string.  Really I was stretching how one would usually use a string. …. I ended up using them sort of as the lines of the string and the filling into those loops … but then I ended up using them around the space left by the string also.  Just how it happened!

Which Tangle is Which?

Giggle Vine is in the upper left corner.  I used it around the string itself – and then decided that that was plenty for that space – else it would be crowded.  Then the peacock feather type things in the upper middle are SP-Eye-Ryl.  They are some around the string itself, come from the string and fill in the string.  The loop on the middle to bottom right is Kurlllz.  It usually wouldn’t be used on the edge of the string like I did, but I wanted to use it.  Then I filled the center of the loop with it too because it looked empty.  So that is the String 71 itself.  Then the peacock feathers SP-Eye-Ryl decided to fill the bottom part underneath the string.  And Kurlllz weaves around to the right of the string.  So that is all .. just those 3!  I am always a little shocked when I see my ZIA blown up – all these spaces then show up … 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!

Bugles Challenge

Each week the Diva puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. This week is the Weekly Challenge #170: UMT – Bugles – by Joyce Evans”. So here is what the Diva says this week “It’s the first Monday of the month, so i hope you’re all ready for a Use My Tangle challenge!!  This week’s tangle is brought to you by Joyce Evans.  It’s called Bugles…” So this is a ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using Bugles in some variation!

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 wanted to try some tangles that are new to me to practice so above is my Bugles Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected!

Which Tangle is Which?

Bugles is the tangle in the center right – first time I have tried it. It is the little cone shaped things with light strips, all connected with leaf type extensions. Underneath and around the Bugles is KnightsBridge – sort of like a checkerboard that circles around.  The 3 life savers in the top left are Pepper – not the best Pepper I have seen, but this also is my first time (actually it is my first time for all of these tangles).  The little bunch of grapes in the top right is the Bronx Cheer … I thought it would add a little spark there! I am always a little shocked when I see my ZIA blown up – all these spaces then show up … but I wanted to get it into the Diva’s challenge.
