More Tiles and a Challenge

Hi all!  I have done another challenge for I am the Diva.  The challenge was to do a tile with a spiral going out.  I drew my string and started tangling.  I had no idea where I was going to go with it.  I thought I would just do a little Poke Leaf, one of my favorite fillers.  Then I just kept going around and around, spiraling out.  I ended up doing a mono tangle of just Poke Leaf!  I decided to shade the in-between spaces and all of a sudden, I had my tile!  I think it turned out really cool!
 Mono Tangle for Diva Challenge #160

I was at a ladies' church function last week.  I was showing some people how easy it was to draw a Zentangle.  I drew a string and just did a couple of quick tangles to show them.  I didn't pay a lot of attention to what I was doing and didn't particularly like the tile that I had started, but I decided to finish it later.  I still didn't particularly like it but continued on...I finally decided that the only way to salvage it was to make it a ZIA and add color to it.  I used some iridescent watercolor paints and kept going until I was satisfied with it.  I wish you were able to see the iridescence.  It is much prettier in real life.  My husband thinks it is fantastic!  I am pleased with the outcome.

 I did this Zentangle to try using a new tangle called Rixty.  It is in honor of Rick Roberts 60th birthday.  Get it?  Rick is sixty...Rixty!  

This is another one that I did with Rixty.  I also wanted to use this string and I had a blue tile handy so I did it on the blue.  Interesting...

That's all for today.  I am working on some more challenges that I will post at a later day.

Till next time...
