Challenge # 343

The new tangle "Dewd"of Zentangle HQ is the challenge this week.
I made an a-symetric Zendala with it.
drew it with a blue Micron and shaded with colored pencils in blue and purple and a little bit of orange.

This weekend the weather was real bad in The Netherlands, lots of rain and wind.
Very good to stay in the house and draw the Zendala below.

Go Big (or go home)
We should draw big this week with a thicker pen than we are used to.
I took a red folio elastomap and drew with an identipen.

Those tangles I drew also on a normal size tile with my Micron 01

Challenge # 339

Celebrating Haloween is just starting the last few years in The Netherlands.
I think the younger generation is celebrating it more, it's not my thing.
That's why I choose Autumn for this challenge.
I drew with Microns in autumn colors brown and orange.

Challenge # 336

Striping is this weeks tangle to use in a monotangle.
Not my favorite tangle but now I worked with it I have to change my mind about it.
I am very happy with the result.

With the challenge from last week I totally fell in love with Henrike's TINT
Made another tile with it and love it even more!

Challenge #335 2nd

I love the tangle TINT witch is the tangle for the challenge this week.
So I have been playing with it some more and this is the result.
There is so much possible with this tangle !!!
Did I already say I love it?

Challenge # 335

Tint is the tangle we should use this week.
It's the tangle of the UMT this month, designed by Henrike Bratz.
Thank you Henrike, I love this tangle and I think I will use it much more in the future,
I drew this tile and when it was finished it reminds me of a swarm of bees.

Challenge # 334

Crazy 'nZeppel
One of my favorite tangles, and especially Crazy 'nZeppel
Here's my contribution for this challenge.

woensdag 20 september 2017


In the newsletter of Zentangle HQ they showed us how to do  "Transzending"

          The video from Zentangle HQ

I tried to do this with a tile I drew last month.
I don't think it's an improvement, but it was fun to do.

Challenge # 333

Sorry, but I don't understand the challenge at all.
So I decided to do a tile with the tangles Marasu and Tripoli.

Challenge # 332

Two Squared

For this challenge I glued two Bijou tiles on a dark, and two on a purple tile and draw diagonal on the tiles.
To see it right your should turn the tiles diagonal.

this corner under.
      Elefantenhaut tile and 2 white Byou size tiles.

    This corner under.

    Purple tile and 2 white Byou size tiles drawn with purple and black Micron,
    Colored with Prismacolor pencils.

New tangles "Eggs and Flevo"

Two new tangles

Here two new tangles I designed.
The first one I give the name Eggs.
You can see why I choose this name.

The second one I gave the name Flevo.
(I always find it difficult to give my tangles a name)
Because I live in the province Flevoland in the Netherlands I thought this would be a good name.

I hope you like them, try them and make variations with them.

Challenge # 331

"Petoskey stones from Michigan"

The challenge is given this week by guest blogger Jane Reiter.
We should be inspired by the Petoskey stones.
I never heard of them, They are amazing!!!
I decided to draw Crazy Huggins as the basis and see how to fill it in for the challenge.
I think it was perfect to draw the Petoskey stones in it.
I am very happy with the result.

Playing with the new tangle and Challenge # 330

Challenge # 330
This week Zentangle plates.
A challenge from the guest Jeanette Clawson.
This was a lot of work and I enjoyed every minute of it.
I used a brown, sepia and orange Micron and colored with Albrecht Dührer watercolor pencils.

This week we received the newsletter from Zentangle HQ with the new tangle  SPOKEN
I have been playing with it for quite a long time with these tiles as a result.
I drew on lilac paper, drawn with a purple and blue Micron and colored (shaded) with colored pencils.
This was so much fun to do, I love SPOKEN, so many possibilities with it.

The background I meandered with a sharp blue pencil, I hope you  can see that.

The next one is SPOKEN, but only the first part of the tangle. (without the crossing over) 
It gives a complete different effect.

This was so much fun, it took me several hours to make the both tiles.
Also love the combination of purple and blue on lilac.

Here another one I drew sunday.
Again on lilac paper and drawn with only the purple Micron.
Spoken in the corners and filled in with Betweet and Tipple.

Nog een voor de challenge # 329

D1 is een leuke tangle om het schaduwen te oefenen.
Deze tile heb ik gemaakt om dat te proberen.

dinsdag 15 augustus 2017

Challenge # 329

Fragment D1
Is the Challenge from the Dutch guest tangler Marguerite Semema.
We should draw Fragment D1 from Fragments and Reticula.
On the first tile I used D1 and Q1.
For the second one I combined D1 with Mooka and Flux.
(I did not see the tile of Marguerite yet where she also combines those tangles.)
What a coincident!

Both are drawn with brown and sepia Micron and colored with colored pencils.

Leuke uitdaging Marguerite! ! !

Challenge # 327

Tangle "LISBON" by Henrike Bratz
What a great tangle to play with !
The first tile I did on Elefantenhaut with a brown, black and Sepia Micron and shaded with colored pencil.( Maybe you don't see Lisbon in it, but it really is the base of this tile.)
The second one (I forgot the Diva Dance) with blue and brown Micron and also shaded with colored pencils.

Challenge #326

Monotangle 'n-Zeppel
One of my favorite tangles because you can use it on almost every drawing to complete and balance the drawing.
First I drew a grid with a white Gelly-roll on beige paper.

After that I drew with a sanguine fine liner and left the white grit visible.
Than I colored shadows and highlights wit colored pencils.


Vorige week heb ik een workshop Gemstones gegeven.
Hier het resultaat van deze geslaagde middag..

Ook heb ik een restje kaartenpapier vol getangled.

Al met al een lekker creatieve week.

Challenge # 325 and Opus Tile

Another challenge by Jessica Davies as a guest for the Diva.
We should use the tangle Pea-nuckle
Not my favorite tangle but I gave it a try.

Drew it with a blue Micron and colored with Polichromos.

The Opus tile is finished.
I drew it with a black Micron and colored and shaded with Polichromos colored pencils.

The tile is too big for my scanner so I took a photo, but it looks like the colors are not as bright as they really are.
                                  (I drew six insects in it for you to find!)

Challenge # 324

Tangled Heart
The challenge this week comes from Jessica Davies.
She's the first tangler who does the challenge while Laura and her family are on vacation.
My contribution is a part of an OPUS tile I am working on.
This is just a part of the tile, and I hope that next week I can show it finished.

Still a lot of work to do!

Challenge # 322 , Gems and Pearls

Aquafleur is the tangle for the challenge this week.
A lovely tangle, I should use it more because its so decorative.

I drew it with a blue Micron and shaded with Deep Colbalt and Indigo Polichromos.

Also drew a Zia with Gems and Pearls.
Pearls are still very difficult, still have to practice and find step-outs how to draw them well.
