Weekly Challenge #142 Comfort/Danger Zone

Moving into my danger zone seems to bring me back to Zendalas. Moving forward I think I am going to try to do one once a week to get me over this "danger" feeling. I completed this one but, it took me over four days (yes, there is a new puppy in the house but, I think it would have taken me that long without the distraction) So, here is my "danger zone" Zendala.

Weekly Challenge #141: DuoTangle - Fengle/Quandry

Thank you Diva for giving us such a lovely challenge this week. I do find myself just waiting until Monday for her prompt to create a tile or ZIA. I am busy and distracted but, I feel I should get back to the Zen of the tangle and create more of what I love.

Anyway, I really liked the black and white look of Laura's Zendala so I took out my black drawing paper and white Gelly pen and here is the result. One oops in the middle where I touched down before it was dry but, as many of you already know, the Gelly pens have a smooth feel to them which makes using them a pleasure and the white on black is striking.

Margaret Bremner has introduced us to a new tangle which she has called Crezn't. I found some time to play with it this morning and discovered it to be very versatile.

Weekly Challenge #139: "8s Parte Dos" by Jane Eileen

It has been a while since I have had time to sit and tangle never mind post something new here.  This weeks challenge, to use Jane Eileen's tangle "8 Parte Dos," ended up as busy as my life seems right now. I could not do a tile without trying out Sandy Hunters new tangle "Merry Weather" too!

Weekly Challenge #138: "Fun with Borders"

Borders appear on many things in and around our home. Ever since I saw Maria Thomas's fascination with frame designs I have been gathering pictures for future tangling myself. This challenge has provided a perfect excuse to try one I recently found in a friends home.

This looked so rich and ornate to me, I immediately loved it.

The second tile I decided it needed a little more weight to it and I prefer that one to the first.
