Challenge 97 No Strings

This week Diva Laura's challenge is to design a tile using no string.  I started my tile at the bottom left hand cornor with Socc and from there I drew in Aura-Leah's.  Looking at the tile I thought, the Zingers would look great with the leafy-like Aura-Leah's and then I added a few fescu and I was finished.  I like the way the tile turned out and I do like working without a string most of the time.  The strings sometimes feels inhibiting, more freedom and flow without the string.

Shaded Zendala

I am reposting my recent Zendala.  Returning to my blog and looking at this Zendala I knew it did not look right, but what was wrong with it?  Huh, the Zendala had no shading on it.  Well, I shaded the tile and you can see the difference between the two.  The unshaded Zendala is below the shaded tile.  Take a look, see the difference shading can make on a design.

Challenge 96 Zinger

I love this tangle, it can be places in almost all tangle patterns and designs. I have used this tangle before because I could see Maria used it many times in her designs.  It is easy, delicate, fits in small spaces and has a flowering look to it.  If you notice I put Mooka on my tile to look like a heart with the Zingers coming out of the heart.  I really had fun making this tile.

Another Vegas Tangle

My Blog's New Look

Have you notice my blog has had a beautiful face lift? I met this remarkable girl, Monica.  She was in one of my Zentangle classes and I asked if she knew how to add, update blogs.  Monica is doing a great job, she is still tweeking here and there and we are having
fun with it.  Let me know what you think. 

Here is another tile I did in Las Vegas.

Las Vegas Tangles

I spent 3 days in Las Vegas with my Hubby, Son and Daughter-in-Law.  The Guys are in a tool show, the Gals get a few days in before the show starts.  I made some time to get some tangles made and here is the first one.

Challenge 94 Socc

The Diva Challenge this week is a tangle by Erin Olson called Socc.  I really liked this tangle, it is easy fun and a surprise as to how it looks when completed.

Thanks Erin.
