Diva Challenge 211 - Flux

This week, the Diva has had to put Artoo and his health first and here's hoping he's feeling better very soon.

However, we were not left without a Challenge - she's good - and we were sent off to investigate the 'Fluxes' of Rick and Maria. Interestingly, I think they are two very different patterns, not even tanglations of the same thing but for some reason, they bear the same name.

I took the basic shape of each as my string and tangled the two different shapes inside their string counterpart. Personally, I much prefer Rick's version, and I think you can tell on my tangle but it's nice to have options!!

Take care Artoo and family. I know you look after each other so very well. Hugs from Spain.

Diva Challenge and String Thing 85

I'm getting way behind with doing Challenges. I don't seem to have enough time in the day to get things done at the moment, never mind leaving myself tangling time. I must try and re-organise!

I have managed to finish Diva Challenge 210 which I enjoyed very much. The challenge was to tangle on a spiral string - one of my favourites - and I decided to go for an unusual combination. A snail shell with a feather tangle and I'm pleased with the result - it took quite a lot of doing and more ink than I usually am prepared to lay down in one tile!

I haven't had an opportunity to look at everyone else's work this week either but I bet there's been some amazing entries - this is something I look forward to seeing when I have a moment!.

And today, I made time to do Adele Bruno's String Thing Challenge but if I don't hurry up, it won't get to her in time! So, in great haste, here is number 85 and it's another spiral!! Hurray! I failed totally at Mumsy, no matter how many times I tried it. I will have to give it another go in a bigger format, I think. But this was a new way to do Printemps for me - it is one of my very favourite tangles - which I did following Adele's suggestions. Very pleased I am with the results, so pleased with Printemps that I had hardly any room to include Kelp. Can you just see it ? Looking forward to seeing how Mumsy SHOULD be done when Adele publishes the tiles.

Thanks to both Laura and Adele.

Diva Challenge 207 - Use my Tangle 'Unbatz'

Minimal post this week.
Unbatz by Sandy Hunter, with my own tangle,  'Skwirl' and the Square One: Purely Zentangle pattern for this week,  'Sez'.
String 146 is by Lily Moon.
Thank you Laura.  I do hope you all have a better week.

(Is it just me, or do some of my 'Sez' look like rather worried pairs of eyes...? Now I am a bit disconcerted.)
