DC #329, a new blog with a new challenge, Happy 4th. Birthday IAST

This weeks guestpost by Marguerite Samana on Diva's blog. Marguerite challengend us to use Fragment D1. I tried to draw in three different ways. On of them with Reticula R-L2 which consist of a circle into a rectangle. Thank you Marguerite for this beautiful and for me relaxing challenge. Please have also a look to the entries of the other artists.

Joey started after her Time-out:

- with a new blog, which have a new format, new name, but the most will be the same as madebyjoey. Congratulation Joey, I like the new format.

- and a beautiful new and interesting challenge over the next 9 weeks. We need 9 tiles (circles, draw in a sketchbook, any size ... all is possible), lay 3 tiles across by 3 down, draw  first a border around the entire square of tiles and then create a large string inside the border crossing every tile. Every week Joey will be choose a tangle, which must be incorporated in the weekly tile.

More details, the new blog and the entries of the other artist you can find here.

I prepared the tiles and began to draw with the first, incorporated African Artist.
While drawing I noticed that I didn't took a picture of the prepared tiles, but it wasn't to late :)) - and here is it.

....and here comes the finished first tile...

Very Happy 4th. Birthday IAST (It's a string Thing). Thank you so much Adele for making a every week great and interesting challenges.

Adele challenged us to celebrate this  with a string of 4 candles and the tangles Knightsbridge, Trella, Copada and Wud.
This week I saw a new Zentangle technic called TransZending - that means, with my words, to draw and shadow your tile as normally. And now drawing with the micron on a part of the tile for example another tangle or a field. Shadow the outside with graphit and inside with white pastell pencil or Zenstone.
I thought this is wonderful and I'll give it a try - especially for this Birthday-Challenge.

  1. Oh I like them all Bine! I do particularly like how your Jaysix goes into holes in Joey's 9 part Challenge.

  2. Oh I haven´t had time for Joey´s... Must check it out! Looks so fun to do! Love your fragmentwork as well!

  3. Wow this is great, so many tangles and so much detail. I laughed when I read that I had a "time-out" as that is what we give children when they have been naughty in order to calm down!
