Days 187 - 189, Challenge Fun!

     I am totally loving all this time to sit and draw or do other household projects.  I love teaching, but it is a full 24/7 job sometimes.   I needed this major unwind time.
     For day 187 I finished two projects.  The first one is the partner to my last post.  I had done the warm colors in a blind scribble.  This time I chose the cool colors and did the same thing.  I don't know which I like best, warm or cool?  Do you have a favorite?
     Then I worked on the New to Me challenge.  We had to use a tangle by Michele Beauchamp and a new tangle that begins with the letter H.  I chose blooming butter by Michele Beauchamp.  She is one of my absolute favorite tangle artists.  Her style is beautiful.  For the letter H, I chose hekzee.   I usually struggle with this one, but this time it worked out okay.
     Not a huge amount of time to create on day 188.  It was grocery day.  Yuck.  I hate the hassle of grocery shopping but since we do enjoy eating, it is a necessity.  I worked on my inchie, "yarn" and also a challenge for Tangle Me 3 - strircles. 
Every Inchie Monday - yarn
strircles
     Today, day 189, I finished up two more challenges.  I did Diva's challenge.  We had to use 2 or three colors.  Lots of times I will color tangles, but rarely work with color pens to draw.  I decided to draw in color this time.
     The last thing I worked on - so far - was the tile for Made by Joey.  We had to do a monotangle with entwine.  I love how this tangle looks.  However, I really cannot draw it without lots of pencil work and struggle.  It is a kicker!  My tile is pretty simple, but really it is all I could do with it. 
     Well, that is all for today!  Thank you for dropping by!  Have a wonderful day!

  2. So much great work here. I have to say I'm the most impressed by your Entwine. I struggle with it, give up, look at other's attempts at it, struggle some more and give up again. Well done!

  6. Some great results. I prefer your warm one, it's just ....warmer :-) Great Entwine and you have managed to put colour into it. The colours in the Diva challenge are great. I hate shopping too, which is what I have to do today

  9. Lovely work in this post! I really like your new-to-me tile with these wonderful blooming butter flowers :-)
    Your strircles tile is also very nice with great contrast in it. And the diva tile has so beautiful colour.

  10. Oh my word, your entwined is PERFECT! I have been struggling with it, but maybe doing it with three colors will break me away from whatever is stopping my success with it. TOUGH pattern! I also love your scribbly string pieces. Nice work.

  14. Your diva challenge this week is so pretty! Love the colors you've used and the other tiles are lovely as well. I know what you mean about needing to use a pencil sometimes to really get things right, but even though I am not supposed to use it for the zentangle work...I do anyway. I'd rather get it right and be satisfied than to not use the pencil because someone tells me I'm not supposed to.
