Challenge #286 Dreamcatcher Tangle by Daniel Lamothe

This weeks challenge by the Diva is a "use my tangle" challenge. Dreamcatcher is a tangle that was introduced by Daniel Lamothe and his step outs can be found HERE.

I was so taken by this tangle I started on it right away only to realize that I did not start in the center of the tile. I was going to pitch it, but I hate wasting tiles and in the end, I like it, with all it's wonkiness!

Dreamcatcher filled with Yincut

Diva Challenge #285 Straight lines

Oh boy was this difficult. I don't do very many organic tangles but I am drawn to orbs and curvy lines. This exercise was frustrating.

Since I have never "got" Shattuck so I tried that, very slowly, on my first tile. I would have loved to add some orbs or just something else so I decided on some drama. Could not even go further.

Next tile I tried three curvy tangles and made them straight. Crescent Moon, Nipa, and Orlique. Well you can see for yourself.

I am now going to draw some orbs and squiggly lines!

Challenge #285 Relax

I must admit that I practice Zentangle purely to benefit my self. I have no pressure to make lesson plans or to do anything that would take my Zen away. I do take part in the Diva's Challenges and weekly Focus's but, this is to get more ideas for new ways for my practice to take me. I feel very fortunate to be able to draw when and what I want when the feeling moves me. This tile is from Lynn Meads Zentwining  (http://atanglersmind.com/zentwining/ ). I had been introduced to it a while ago but recently just "got it.

Diva Challenge #284 Tripoli

Love the Diva, love this tangle. Not always my favorite. I had a hard time "getting" it but, now I love Tripoli.
