It’s a string thing #80

Another challenge!  Thank you Adele for It’s a string thing #80.  I’m enjoying trying out new tangles which I may not have tried before. Kozy is actually a lot more fun than it looks and it fits into lots of different shapes quite easily. The paper I’m using is an original Zentangle® tile which I love. I’m still getting used to the size 3.5″x 3.5″ is a small space to fit all these tangles into. I’m going to try to make the tangles larger. Also – no shading on this one – may come back to it.

Diva Challenge #210


This is my first ‘Diva Challenge‘. The requirement was a spiral string.

I’ve posted 3 progressive photos of the shading to compare. Sometimes I shade as I go and others times I shade at the end. Then there are times when I leave the shading for another session so that I can devote more energy to it. Shading can really make a huge difference to the finished piece of art.

It’s a string thing #84

Decided to start taking up the challenges and I thought this one looked easy! Well it was interesting to use pre chosen tangles – as naturally they are not usually the favourites. I found the whole process trickier that expected. However I’m definitely coming back for more! I used additional tangles to fill in extra spaces and that probably broke the rules… This challenge can be found at It’s a String Thing #84
