I love the Diva Challenges. Even if I don't get to do them on time to get on the peek list, I still welcome the weekly opportunity to get a great idea for a Zentangle® tile!
Today I'm posting 2 different Challenge weeks: 143 and 144.
First, Challenge 143: Cruze tangle. This was a little mind boggling for me. I found myself over-thinking it. I couldn't stop adding stuff to the ribbons.
Week 144: I chose our friend of the moment: the stinkbug. It's been a big year for these guys! I thought the stinkbug deserved a little beauty vibe, since he has many a human cussing him right now. I don't usually do representational images with Zentangle, as I tend to want to 'draw' realistically, and then I start to judge myself too much. I let myself go with the drawing part, since I haven't done that in a long time. It was really fun to mix the representational and the tangles. I had fun adding color (watercolor pencils)
So I guess you could say that our little stinkbug friend (and Laura Harms!) provided me with a breath of fresh air. Thank you both!
