Weekly Challenge #232 Guest Blogger Holly Atwater, CZT

This week the Guest Blogger is Holly Atwater. She proposes us two challenges. The first one is an audio challenge. It's not for me because i don't  know well English, the second with the tangle 'Betweed'.
So i chose the second and decided to use 'Betweed' as a string. But look for it ! I think  I made a mistake. It does not matter, BETWEED is still the source the tile.


Currently I am on vacation and I have fun with Photoshop. Here are two proposals of colorized versions.

Thank you very mush for your comments.

En français, langue que je maîtrise mieux bien sûr!  : Cette semaine, l'invitée du blog de la diva nous propose deux challenge. le premier est un challenge audio, mais ce n'est pas pour moi car je ne suis pas assez bonne en anglais, le second avec le tangle 'BETWEED'.
j'ai donc choisi le secon et j'ai décidé d'utiliser 'BETWEED' comme une ficelle (structure, cadre de mon dessin...). mais cherchez bien BETWEED, je crois que je me suis trompée. Cela ne fait rien, BETWEED est bien à l'origine de cette réalisation.
Actuellement, je suis en vacances, aussi j'en profite pour m'amuser avec Photoshop: Voici deux versions colorisées de mon dessin.

Weekly Challenge #231: "The Undulating Tangles in C and S minor"

This week the guest Blogger,Charla HICKS proposes us to use an old favorite undulating C or S curve tangle and work in a series OR find a new one and begin a new series.

I used 'Sharla Rella' and i liked to shade this tangle and to see shapes appear as and as I drew.

Weekly Challenge #230: "Let’s all be ZenDivaDala"

This week the guest Blogger  proposes us a zendala challenge. You can see template of zendala on the diva's websiteI wanted to be inspired by Chinese lanterns that so much fascinated me during my trip in Asia in July.






I made several tries from the same initial pattern having previously photocopied the drawing. I had fun with Photoshop to colorise the black and white tiles.


Thank you for your comments.

Weekly Challenge #229 Guest Blogger Sandy Hunter, CZT



This week The Diva is still on vacation. The guest Blogger Sandy Hunter launched this challenge: "Shift your focus to the negative space, so the white part of your tile is the focus of your tangle". 

Like Sandy Hunter, I tend to make my tangles really busy because I do not succeed to stop to tangle, i always try other pattern. many times i decided to leave a white area as the focus of my drawing and each time I found these designs more balanced : The following are two examples of these tests :

In my opinion, this tile seemed too busy.

I tried the same one with the central area left white :

I prefer this second version.  And you ?

Another drawing done in 4 parts. The central area is a tree ( highly stylized indeed with branches and roots) :


I'm going to tangle a new one this week. But often it's difficult for me  to finish by Friday evening.

Thank you for your comments.
