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. 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

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.

My Diva “Be like Bijou” Challenge Entry

My Diva “Be like Bijou” Challenge Entry

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 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 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!

My Diva Duotangle by the Letter Challenge Entry

My Diva Duotangle by the Letter Challenge Entry

Duotangle by the Letter

Duotangle by the Letter Zentangle Challenge Entry, Pen, © Diane Clancy

Duotangle by the Letter: Double D’s, Cayke

Duotangle by the Letter Challenge

Each week the Diva puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. This week is the Weekly Challenge #178: “Duotangle by the Letter!. So here is what the Diva says this week “This week’s challenge is a Duotangle, but with a bit of a twist.  Instead of me assigning the two tangles this week – you are going to chose your two tangles based on your name! ” So this is a ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using Duotangle by the Letter!!

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. So, being Diane Clancy, I had to make a duotangle with 2 tangles – one starting with D and one with C. I was in the hospital getting a treatment when I started this, so I looked at the iPad and found a D tangle and a C tangle which I had never used before.  Double D’s is the D one – sigh … it just didn’t look like I wanted it to!!!  But also, it was lying down, propping up the iPad and drawing at the same time.  The Cayke was more successful I think but still not what I wanted.  Oh well!. So above is my  Duotangle by the Letter Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected!

Which Tangle is Which?

The Cayke is the “fruit” hanging in a bunch in the center and also the swirls and loops at the upper right and bottom left.  Of course it is not supposed to look like bunches of bananas – LOL.  The vertical streamers to the right and left of the bananas is the Double D’s. The action above the Cayke is also Double D’s.  At least I tried them!!!  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!!)

My Zeta Challenge Entry for Tangled Thursday

My Zeta Challenge Entry for Tangled Thursday

Zeta

Zeta Zentangle Challenge Entry, Pen, © Diane Clancy

Zeta: Zeta, Zander, Cogwheel, Florz

Zeta Challenge

Occasionally some friends put out a challenge for folks to make their representation of their idea. This week is the Tangled Thursday – Bring on Zeta. So Tami says ” so here is my challenge … Use tangle pattern ‘Zeta” in a drawing.” So this is a ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using Zeta!

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 love the name Zeta and the idea is pretty … little harder to use in a tile and I did want to try some one that are new to me – so above is my Zeta Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected!

Using Zeta

I decided to put Zeta diagonally across the tile (another name for the canvas one uses in Zentangle).  I had the link open showing how to create Zeta all week and still didn’t quite understand it. Today I knew I had to buckle down to business so eventually I understood (more or less) how it is put together.  So I just started with Zeta across and then looked and looked until I could see what to do next.  Just how it happened!

Which Tangle is Which?

Zeta is the tangle across the center that almost looks like playing cards to me.  Below Zeta is Cogwheel.  There are no steps to show how to do it and it took a couple of tries but it is ok, mostly pretty good.  It is the one that looks like rings on a tree that has been cut.  I decided that Zeta would “rest” on Cogwheel so I filled up the bottom.  Zander is the one that looks like bound wheat. Again there are no steps for that one and I think I did a good job.  Florz is the net on the top. 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″). 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!

My Diva Truffle Entry Challenge

My Diva Truffle Challenge Entry

Truffle

Truffle Zentangle Challenge Entry, Pen, © Diane Clancy

Truffle: Truffle, Barberpole, Jetties, Crufflle, SP-Eye-Ryl

Truffle Challenge

Each week the Diva puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. This week is the Weekly Challenge #177: “Truffle by Caroline Broady, CZT”. So here is what the Diva’s blog says this week “Caroline here, from CZT 11. I am really excited for the opportunity to guest-write on the Diva’s blog. I figure this is a golden opportunity to finally publish my tangle, truffle. I actually developed this pattern at my CZT training seminar in June 2013, inspired by some wallpaper at the Hotel Providence.” So this is a ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using Truffle!!

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 some tangle (Chainlea I think (I looked it up – not Chainlea but similar)) and I got confused and took a new one, so I had this one put aside as a mistake. I figured since it worked last time to work with a “broken” card, I would try again. So above is my Truffle Zentangle Tangle ZIA. This – of course – went in a very different direction than expected!

Which Tangle is Which?

The flower or reeds with those gorgeous plumes are SP-Eye-Ryl in the upper right corner and top and right.  Truffle is dancing across from the lower left to the upper right.  Truffle is also the circle in the upper left.  Barberpole is the striped pole from middle bottom to upper right.  Underneath Barberpole is Jetties – marbles which are covering the false start I made before.  Under the Jetties are Cruffle in the bottom right. One is encouraged to tangle in the spokes of Truffle, but it just did not come out that way!  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 Negative Space Challenge Entry for Tangled Thursday

My Negative Space Challenge Entry for Tangled Thursday

Negative Space

Negative Space: Zentangle Challenge Entry, Pen, © Diane Clancy

Negative Space: Rixty, Barberpole, Jetties, Crufflle, Kurlllz, Bunzo

 

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!

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!
