Outside the Box!

      I loved the Diva's challenge this past week of doing something you don't normally do!  If this had been next week, when I am on spring break, and had loads of time, I would have tangled a tile with my wood burner.  I already have that in my plans and have the wood ready and waiting.  But no time this week.  So I grabbed my Sakura souffle markers and tangled on a piece of black cardstock.  I had not used them on black before and oooo, I love the results.  I am going to try this more often.  I love the intensity of the colors.

Dare #49
      All through the week when I have had a spare second, I grabbed the template from the Bright Owl.  I really had fun with this one and love the results.  One little bobble early on almost caused me to trash it, but I decided to stick it out and it really isn't visible.

Twinchie?
     Totally by accident I found another challenge.  This one is only once a month though.  So I really should be able to do this.  And it is only 2 little inches of paper.  Okay, I hope I can do it.  But summer is fast approaching and I should have lots of spare time.  The theme for March's "twinchie" was "flower or flowers".  I used watercolor paper and pencils.  Then I added a gold bee from my pack of beads I won a while back.  Check out Show Us Your Twinchie to see some of the other entries and perhaps get involved yourself.

And the winner is . . .
     Me!!  I entered a giveaway from Michellle Beauchamp.  And I won!!  I love, love , love her art work and could stare at it for hours.  Now I have a wonderful piece all my own.  I was thrilled.  Zip over to the link and see this piece for yourself - totally awesome.   She also put a nice tangled card and a book mark in the package.  Great surprises.
     Guess it is time to wrap this post up.   I now need to go to work on the monotangle challenge.  And since I now am officially on spring break - I have the time to do just that!  Thanks for dropping by and leaving a smile!

  2. These are all beautiful. I especially love the zendala. It's so bold and precise, yet soft at the same time. I'll have to look up the "twinchies".

    Lucky you to have won one of Michelle's pieces. They are absolutely gorgeous.

  6. All pretty, but my fav. is the zendala - it's really, really pretty! I love the sepia and black/white, and your choice and placement of tangles is so very well balanced - dark and light, bold lines and fines lines, angles and curves.... Well done!

  9. Your designs are terrific, you must have a very steady hand. I do like the markers on black, but the circle design is beautifully detailed and interesting too. Thanks for the link to Twinchies.
