Arukas Challenge

Each week the Diva puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. The Diva is back and her son is ok!!  This week is the Weekly Challenge #195 : Turning “New Official Tangle – Arukas”. So here is what the Diva says this week “Last weekend a new official tangle was announce in the Zentangle Newsletter – it’s called Arukas… which is cleverly Sakura backwards! This is one fun tangle.  If you haven’t had a chance to play with it – today is your lucky day!!! This week’s challenge is to use the new tangle in your tile or inspired piece.” So this is a little ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using Arukas.

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 working through a lot but things are less pressured than they were.  This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected! I am thrilled that it looks to me (and Susan) like Dr. Seuss!! Thank you to everyone who made comments on my posts these last weeks. That means a lot to me!!

Which Tangle is Which? and How I Did the Challenge

The Arukas are the stars like tangles in the upper left and lower right.  The Poke Leaf are hanging down in the upper right.  Rixty starts at the bottom left and meanders to the middle.  The SP-Eye-Ryl are popping up between Rixty and the right star.  Ojo meanders from the top middle, through the tile, to near the bottom left.  There you have it!! :)

I am organizing my studio again to be able to work and now only a table has tons of stuff dumped on it – but the rest is organized!! (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

Holiday Negative Space : Jetties, SP-Eye-Ryl, Trio, Rixty, Barberpole, Marasu, Beadsline

Holiday Negative Space  Challenge

Occasionally some friends put out a challenge for folks to make their representation of their idea. It is my turn to choose the challenge this week. This week is the Tangled Thursday – Holiday Negative Space. So I say “here is my challenge … leave negative space that results in some holiday or winter image.” So this is a ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) creating a negative space or shape without any marks.  I was planning on a star but I couldn’t get it right … so I tried a couple of more shapes and eventually an angel came out well enough!  :)

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 able to be more in the flow again – whew! So above is my Holiday Negative Space Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected! Thank you to everyone who made comments on my posts these last weeks. That means a lot to me!!

Which Tangle is Which?

The bottom of the angel’s dress is Barberpole.  The left hand edge of her dress is Rixty. The right hand side of her dress is SP-Eye-Ryl.  SP-Eye-Ryl is also in several other places – it is the leafy tangle.  To the right of her head is Jetties – the marble looking tangle. Her right hand is defined by Marasu – it looks like a snail.  Trio is under her skirt, under the Barberpole.  They are sort of heart shaped.  Then Beadlines is underneath the Trio and to the right of Rixty.  There you have it!! :)

I am organizing my studio again to be able to work and now only a table has tons of stuff dumped on it – but the rest is organized!! (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

My Pattern Mixer Merging Mooka Rixty Challenge Entry

My Pattern Mixer Merging Mooka Rixty Challenge Entry

Pattern Mixer Merging Mooka Rixty

Pattern Mixer Merging Mooka Rixty Challenge Entry, Pen, Pencil © Diane Clancy

Incredibly Exciting New Challenge!!

Anya has created the first Zentangle challenge in German (don’t worry – she gives an English translation too :) ) I had to click the “Comments” to see the English but then it popped right up.  English is on the bottom half of the post.

I hope Anya doesn’t mind that I have quoted her extensively!!! I think this is a fabulous challenge and I want to share enough so you can see this is very doable and will be great fun to join in.  To make it VERY clear – below is a very long quote from Anya – these are not my own words at all.

Pattern Mixer Merging Mooka Rixty Challenge

Each month the Anya puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. December 2014 is the very first challenge from Anya and Pattern Mixer!!  This month is A new Zentangle-Challenge: The Pattern Mixer. So here is what Anya says this month “On every first day of the month I will randomly (or sometimes not so randomly) choose two patterns. Your job will be to merge these two patterns on a Zentangle tile.

How do I mix the patterns?

Generally speaking, thereare three basic ways of combining patterns and you should choose at least one of them for your tile.

  1. Tangle in a tangle: You draw your first pattern a bit larger than you normally would and fill the empty spaces in your pattern with another tangle. Example

  2. Combining elements: You take elements from one pattern and integrate them into the other tangle, thus creating a new pattern. Example
  3. Merging: You make smooth transitions from one tangle pattern to the next, sort of letting one pattern melt into the next one. Like this.

And now, let me wish you happy tangling and mixing! (Anya)

Today’s patterns are:


Mooka

Rixty

So this is a little ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) merging Mooka and Rixty done by me.

Merging Challenge

This challenge stretches me in several ways.  First off Mooka and I have had a couple of rounds before and Mooka has always won. I had been working on ACEO size paper I had cut – 2.5″ x 3.5″ – so pretty small.  Second off, given the detail of Mooka and our past history, I knew I better go to larger paper.  Recently I bought some supplies and got some paper that is 6″ x 6″.  Since I got new paper I have been working with some 3.5″ x 3.5″ paper but that is as large as I have ever gone.  Even working with the 3.5″ square paper was a big jump for me from ACEO size.

So this is the first time I have worked on large paper like this.  Partway through, especially on the bottom right, Mooka and I started to become friends.  Whew!!  After I drew all the Mooka and Rixty and then started shading, it was amazing to see how the Mooka became 3 dimensional.  Very fun.  Just so you know, I chose Option 3 that Anya gave us – Merging. I hope you like it!!

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 able to be more in the flow again – whew! I just found Anya today and decided to enter the challenge. So above is my Pattern Mixer Merging Mooka Rixty Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected! Thank you to everyone who made comments on my posts these last weeks. That means a lot to me!!

Which Tangle is Which?

Mooka is all the fingers waving around and curling inward.  Rixty is the one with the black triangles at the base of each connection.  There you have it!! :)

I am organizing my studio again to be able to work and now only a table has tons of stuff dumped on it – but the rest is organized!! (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

SNOW: Scrumble, Nevelope, Ojo, Widgets

SNOW Challenge

Each week Joey puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. This week is the joey’s weekly tangle challenge #37. So here is what Joey says this week ” We had our first dusting of snow this past weekend so I’m officially in the winter spirit now.
(standing in the freezing temperature watching my son play soccer Saturday morning
had a way of making it clear that winter really is here! Brrr!)
So this week’s challenge is to use the following tangles:
S – Scrumble
N – Nvelope
O – Ojo
W – Widgets
Choose a string or use a plain frame (square, circle, etc) ” So this is a little ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using SNOW.

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 able to be more in the flow again – whew! I just found Joey today and decided to enter the challenge.  So above is my SNOW. Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected! Thank you to everyone who made comments on my posts these last weeks. That means a lot to me!!

Which Tangle is Which?

The circle in the middle is Nevelope.  The upper circle is Scrumble.  The joyful dancing caterpillar is Ojo.  Ojo was the very first tangle I ever tried and I love it (I am sure you can see.)  The other joyful, loose tangle is all those little Widgets spread around – they are not connected to the dancing line.  There you have it!! :)

I am organizing my studio again to be able to work and now only a table has tons of stuff dumped on it – but the rest is organized!! (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

All Dolled Up Challenge

Each week the Diva puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. This week is the Weekly Challenge #196 : Turning “All Dolled Up”. This is the last of the series of Guest Divas. So here is what the Guest Diva, Emily says this week “As the mother of an adorable four-year-old girl, my life is surrounded by dolls–stuffed dolls, magnetic dolls, story dolls, and of course, an infinite supply of princess dolls.  For the holiday season, I will be creating a tangled tree as part of a local historical society’s seasonal exhibit.  Area organizations and businesses decorate a tree based on items from the society’s collection.  I chose antique dolls for a tangled paper doll tree.  Each 12-inch ornament will have an individually hand-tangled dress.  I can’t wait to see how this tree develops!

 Your challenge this week is not to decorate an entire tree.  You may now breathe a huge sigh of relief. Instead, I invite you to be inspired by dolls like I have been.  Awaken your inner child, and add some playtime to your tangling with a doll-shaped string, a tangled paper doll chain, or a tangled fabric doll.  Do you have an old Barbie stuck in a trunk somewhere?  I bet there’s a way to tangle her too.” So this is a little ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) All Dolled Up.

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 able to be more int he flow again – whew!  So above is my All Dolled Up Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected! Thank you to everyone who made comments on my posts these last weeks. That means a lot to me!!

Paper Dolls

I started out by making outlines (strings) of a row of paper dolls. As a child I wanted an identical twin (or 2 identical triplets) so that I would have someone who really understood me.  I played some with dolls and such … but I had Betsy McCall.  She was not as developed as Barbie and she had only one set of clothes – a horse riding outfit.  She the stories I played were focused on what we did … not what clothes or fashion we had.  I probably had a Barbie too but the clothes and hair bug never bit me.

I also had some Colonial paper dolls with a couple of old-fashioned outfits.  I think it was a Shari Lewis paper doll also with a couple of outfits and a lamb.  I remembered the Sheri part and something to do with a lamb … and Wikipedia came up with Shari Lewis.  But what I really liked doing was making my own (very very simple) strings of identical twins/triplets and more.  I didn’t even decorate them … just cut them out so that they would have others who understood them.

I always thought I had been a twin and the other one just didn’t make it though the nine months.  But the really funny thing … when I told my Mom that once, she told me that she had always thought the same thing about herself. Wow!!  That was totally amazing to me (and she meant it).  Another funny thing, I am married to a twin too (but a fraternal twin who did not have that experience of being understood).  And I have always scooped up any reading I could about identical twins and they resonance they often have with each other.

Of course, much of the spiritual and energetic healing and information that is now so prevalent says that we are much more connected than realized.  So now I can focus on being part of and connected to the whole of the human consciousness where we are all really one.  So I no longer need to be an identical twin … but I am still fascinated by them!!  :)

Which Tangle is Which?

I started out by making outlines (strings) of a row of paper dolls. The middle head is Cruffle.  The right and left heads are Jetties.  The bodies of the triplets are SP-Eye-Ryl.  The net between the bodies is Florz.  The floor underneath is Knightbridge and the space above the paper dolls is Nipa.  There you have it!! :)

I am organizing my studio again to be able to work and now only a table has tons of stuff dumped on it – but the rest is organized!! (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

Turning Old into New: Brax

Turning Old into New Challenge

Each week the Diva puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. This week is the Weekly Challenge #195 : Turning “Old into New”. So here is what the Guest Diva, Sandy, says this week “Imagine your favorite go-to tangle pattern. Something you love; something you draw all the time. Is it a grid-based pattern? Or is it a ‘scatter’ pattern, that you can just use randomly to fill up a space? If nothing comes immediately to mind, go poke around on tanglepatterns.com …or pinterest. They’re gold mines for tangle patterns.

Here’s the challenge: If you picked a grid-based pattern, pull it out of the grid and make it a freeform one. If it’s a freeform pattern, make it a grid-based pattern. That could mean several rows or a single row, drawn as a border. The idea is to change the structure of a pattern, while still retaining its basic elements.” So this is a little ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) Turning Old into New.

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 still putting one foot in front of the other at times still though this week things eased up a little!! :)  Susan is starting to really do great!!  Whew!! I got some paper and pens this week.  This is the 2nd one I have done with them :) So above is my Turning Old into New Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected! Thank you to everyone who made comments on my posts these last weeks. That means a lot to me!!

Which Tangle is Which? and How I Did the Challenge

Ok this is just one tangle so that is not an issue.  But Helen Williams has this tangle Brax that I have always wanted to use but was timid to try.  She has one gorgeous image of it where the tangle sweeps out (similar to my bottom left).  I have always love the sweeping feeling of that.  But the image itself is grid based and usually more squared off.  I had this image of the grid flowers getting free and flying out :)  The hearts are for the flowers loving being free!! :) I think it fits for the challenge – do you? There you have it!! :)

Big News

I have ordered some larger paper squares, including some black paper … and pens!! So we shall see :) Also I am happy that I feel I am getting better at this :)

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!!  And since I ordered some paper, it gives me some breathing room!

I am organizing my studio again to be able to work and now only a table has tons of stuff dumped on it – but the rest is organized!! (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

Embracing the Yuck Challenge

Each week the Diva puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. This week is the Weekly Challenge #194 : Embracing the “Yuck”. So here is what the Guest Diva, Ekisa, says this week ” This week’s challenge is inspired by the circumstances surrounding why Laura needs guest bloggers. … Any parent would feel unsteady and plain scared about their kiddo needing surgery. It’s an even more profound experience of fear and powerlessness when your kiddo has unique circumstances and is prone to throwing medical “curve balls”. Learning how to cope with these events becomes it’s own unique art form. Like The Diva, I speak from experience.

Here’s my idea.  Let’s show some Zentangle solidarity and support for Laura and other fellow “Zentanglers” fighting the feelings that come with being forced to sit with that unsteadiness and powerlessness.  My clinical term for this is, “Embracing the Yuck” (I’m so fancy).
With all of this in mind, your challenge is to tangle with your non-dominant hand (including shading and blending).  Cue the collective groan.  For those uniquely lucky souls who are ambidextrous, please hold your pen, etc.,  like you’re singing into a microphone.  

Let’s return to the foundation of Zentangle and focus solely on that process, celebrating the imperfection of the product.  Can you find the beauty in the discomfort? What happens when you tap into that shaky feeling as you navigate your tile?  Did you find a way to adapt?” So this is a little ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using my left hand.

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 still putting one foot in front of the other at times still though this week things eased up a little!! :)  So above is my Left Hand Yucky Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected! Thank you to everyone who made comments on my posts these last weeks. That means a lot to me!!

Shaky Ville!

Well this is very humbling to see my left hand in action!!  Sometimes I have trained it some but not for awhile … and I do have fibro so am shaky than used to be in general.  I feel like a little kid trying to draw straight lines and frustrated because everyone else can!!!  :)  :)

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

TriTangle : Trio, Huggins, Xyp Challenge

Each week the Diva puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. This week is the Weekly Challenge #193 : TriTangle : Trio, Huggins, & Xyp. So here is what the Guest Diva, Holly, says this week “In the spirit of gratitude and celebration … I would like to issue a challenge of THX (thanks). This week’s challenge is a TriTangle (I love how it’s almost a triangle! … using the patterns of: Trio (pattern by CZT, Hanny Waldburger), Huggins (by Zentangle), Xyp (by Zentangle)” So this is a little ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using the TriTangle : Trio, Huggins, Xyp.

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 still putting one foot in front of the other at times still though this week things eased up a little!! :) And for those of you who really read this … my partner is recovering from an expected surgery right at this moment – still dealing with an unexpected complication. So this week twice we have no heat in below freezing weather.   The fairly new furnace still isn’t set up right. But I am SO grateful that the house is well insulated, we have electric heaters and a roof over our heads.  I think of that at night in bed … those with no heat ever and those living on the street with no roof over their heads.

So above is my TriTangle : Trio, Huggins, Xyp Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected! Thank you to everyone who made comments on my posts these last weeks. That means a lot to me!!

Which Tangle is Which?

The basket weave at the back is Huggins.  I had a lot of trouble with it but plugged away :)  The fun chain is Xyp … next time will know more how to do it.  The fun hearts at the front are Trio. I had a learning curve with them too.  It was deliberate that half has shading and half doesn’t – it just felt right!!  There you have it!! :)

Big News

I have ordered some larger paper squares, including some black paper … and pens!!  So we shall see :)  Also I am happy that I feel I am getting better at this :)

I am always a little shocked when I see my ZIA blown up – but today is not too bad – 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!!

I am organizing my studio again to be able to work and now only a table has tons of stuff dumped on it – but the rest is organized!! (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

UMT – Seton Challenge

Each week the Diva puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. This week is the Weekly Challenge #192: “UMT – Seton by Cris Letourneau”. So here is what the Guest Diva, Chris, says this week “Last week, I had 2 students come back from a trip excited to share their sketchbook where they had recorded patterns from everywhere on their trip: the carpet in the hotel room, the carvings on buildings, even patterns on clothing of fellow travelers. Almost every tangler I know has found themselves becoming more attuned to the patterns they see all around them. … Your challenge this week is to use Seton or a tangleation of it in your art this week OR deconstruct a pattern you see around you and use that in your art. Enjoy observing the patterns all around you.” So this is a little ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using Seton.

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 still putting one foot in front of the other at times still though this week things eased up a little!! :) And for those of you who really read this … my partner is recovering from an expected surgery right at this moment. So above is my Seton Zentangle Tangle ZIA.  This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected! Thank you to everyone who made comments on my posts these last weeks. That means a lot to me!!

Which Tangle is Which?

Well, this week this is an easy question!! It is almost all Seton!!! Barber Pole is the black and white poles that curve across in each direction.  The rest is my first try at Seton.  :) There you have it!! :)

I am always a little shocked when I see my ZIA blown up – and today quite taken aback – 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

Monotangle Betweed: Betweed

Monotangle Betweed Challenge

Each week the Diva puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. This week is the Weekly Challenge #191: “Monotangle: Betweed”. So here is what the Diva says this week “Recently i was working on a zentangle piece where i was using one of my go-to tangles, betweed, and i remembered there being a youtube video wherein Maria demonstrates how to do the tangle betweed so i watched it for a bit of a refresher: … So your mission this week, should you choose to accept it: Create a monotangle using only the tangle Betweed.  (A monotangle is a term that originated here on this blog to describe a tile done using ONLY ONE tangle and it’s variations.)  So, Betweed it up everyone!!” So this is a little ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using Monotangle Betweed!!  The video is a great explanation!!  Here is the Video!

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 still putting one foot in front of the other at times still though this week things eased up a little!! :) And for those of you who really read this … my partner is recovering from an expected surgery right at this moment. So above is my Monotangle Betweed Zentangle Tangle ZIA.  An update to last week’s post, unfortunately last night one of my friends just let me know she is at stage 4 breast cancer … so yet another good reason for last week’s challenge.  Her name is Polly if you want to send prayers or healing. Back to this week’s challenge …  this – of course – went in a very different direction than expected! Thank you to everyone who made comments on my posts these last weeks. That means a lot to me!!

Which Tangle is Which?

Well, this week this is an easy question!!  It is all Betweed!!!  Different variations, but all Betweed  :) There you have it!! :)

I am always a little shocked when I see my ZIA blown 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! 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!!
