Diva Challenge #6: Ixorus

This week's Diva challenge was double fun for me. I hadn't had a chance to try out Zentangle's new pattern, Ixorus. So not only did I have the thrill of the Monday morning challenge discovery, I was thrilled to learn a new tangle! I did the first two on Monday, and the last one happened this morning. Even though the third one doesn't have the little half moon elements, it was completely inspired by the basic structure of the new tangle. Great fun! Thanks, Laura and Maria!

  1. Carole, these are glorious! I've done two tiles with Ixorus and don't really like either of them. Back to the drawing board...

  5. Oooooh - just lovely!! Ixorus seems to have lots of movement, however it is incorporated into a tangled tile.

  6. You have a way of making Ixorus come alive! The first two are like crashing waves, or kelp forests, or something marine; the last one is fantastic with all its betweening.
