Diva Challenge 177 - Truffle!!

Wow, this is so my sort of tangle - even the name is delicious. Well done Caroline - the youngest ever CZT - she's come up with a great guest post and a lovely tangle for us to try whilst the Diva is taking a well-earned break.

I did two tiles this week, just because I was enjoying the flow.

One on a Renaissance tile with some of my new pens bought in a recent visit to the UK.

And one white on black - just as it came out of the pen, no shading, nothing, just a pleasure of line drawing.



Check out all the entries to this great challenge on Laura's blog 'I am the Diva' and enjoy the amazing takes on this lovely new tangle.

Thanks for popping by - feel free to leave me a comment! Axxx

  6. The Renaissance tile looks like embroidery - very pretty. I love white on black and your truffle pattern seems made for that medium.

  7. Both of these look great. I think i prefer the first one though. I like the white highlights on the brown background. Both look very delicate.

    1. I did the first one whilst on holiday in the UK, Donald and when I came home, I retouched and emphasised all the white highlights..I think it made a big difference and I'm so glad you commented on it. Thank you! Axxx

    1. Thank you Laura - there is quite a close link between Zentangle and embroidery, I think, but if you gave me a needle I would NEVER be able to sew what I can draw! Axxx
