Days 96 - 101 (or how did ever get this far behind??)

       Each evening this week I have taken a few minutes to draw.  I needed the zen time.  However, I kept putting off coming over here and blogging.  I just couldn't work up the motivation.  And now look at this!  Six days!  Yikes! Writing the post isn't bad and putting on my art work is a breeze - so why not six days at a time?  Because I have to connect each one to some site or Facebook or somewhere!  Oh well, maybe I will be better organized this week (or not).
      For the Diva Challenge we had to use the tangle "fanz".  I am okay with this one.  I had a thought in mind then it sort of got lost and voila, here is Day 96 and I really don't like it.  Oh well, it is complete.

     The New to Me challenge was to use tangles that begin with the letter Q.  I decided on "quiltz".  I hadn't really played with this one much and so it was run to use it.  I decided on it for the background of my daffodil sketch.   Here is Day 97.

     Day 98 was to use the tangle "cat-kin" for Made by Joey's challenge.  I wasn't sure how to make this one work without doing a nature scene, which for some reason I really didn't want to do.  Finally I decided on this arrangement.  I am not satisfied with the betweed in the middle, but overall it works.

     Tickled to Tangle's challenge was to use the tangles, "loop" and "brella".  I had just seen loop on the internet and so I was anxious to give it a go.  Brella was completely new to me.  I can see both of these becoming a favorite.  There are so many variations to brella, it needs a lot more play time!  I really like Day 99.

      Day 100!!  Wow!  That is pretty exciting!  I haven't missed one day yet.  Okay, I haven't posted on time each day, but I have been creating each day as planned.  This challenge piece is a monotangle of "man-o-man" for Square One. Well, I said monotangle, but it really isn't if you count the way I filled the pieces.  A "sort-a-monotangle".

      I had to play with loop some more.  It was just too much fun to put away and forget.  So this afternoon for Day 101 I just played around with an organic composition featuring loop and phicops.  Lots of fun!

      I really planned on working on my journal page for Journal52, but just can't work up the steam to pull out my circut, which I want to use.  Maybe tomorrow, after I work on school work.  I am sorry this is so long - but thanks for sticking with it.  I love your comments.  Sometimes that little smile you send me just makes my day! I hope your day is filled with blessings and smiles!


  1. Wow I'm impressed I can barely keep up with my own challenge! I was particularly inspired by your last drawing, Never having done that type of layout I'm keen to give it a try. The tangles you have have used create also an explosion, really nice! I also like the Catkin outlined, must try that too!
    Thanks for linking up!

  2. You have certainly been busy. I'm doing good most weeks to just get the Diva's challenge finished. I like them all, but I must say that your last piece is fabulous. I haven't had very good luck with getting loop looking good yet. Now I know what I should aspire to. Beautiful work!

  3. A lot has been done by you! I LOVE (love, love and more) the last (organic) one. The elegance, the playfulness, I just LOVE it.

  4. I like the perspective you put into your Fanz. Your daffodil is pretty. You Day 101 is wonderful! Thanks for being part of the challenge this week!

  5. I agree with you about loop. Once I finally figured it out, I have to do some more with it. Yours is just great.


Thank you for leaving me some sunshine! Your comments make my day!
