I have been experimenting with Diptychs, as suggested by Maria & Rick on the wonderful Kitchen Table Tangles Videos. At first I followed their instructions closely, although I changed the suggested Bales tangle to my own tangle Measles. Here is the result:-
Then I wanted something a bit bigger and I remembered some diptychs Maria had made out of a Zendala tile a while ago and decided to try that. To begin with I folded the Zendala tile in half, then I followed the bottom over to eventually make a stand. You can see my folds here:-
W2 doesn't get used so much these days since the advent of its Crazy cousin Huggins so I decided to use it on this Diptych. It would make a great hinge across the centre fold. I decided to make the lines on the W2 in a zig-zag fashion, just to make it a little different, it made it look as though it was shivering. Here is the finished result, I used Renaissance colours, using the normal Micron Brown pen for the Zenith, shading the V with a brown coloured pencil. You would never know it from the screen, it looks sort of Maroon/pink!

Waybop for the Diva

I am sure many of us have already been trying out Waybop, the new tangle from Maria and Rick. You can see my previous efforts in the other post here.

Not surprisingly The Diva has also been busy with this and has set it as the challenge this week. This is the one I drew for the challenge, Waybop in Orange and Black :-)

I don't want to speak too soon, but the winter here is very mild this year. The snowdrops have come and gone already, the daffodils are out and other bulbs sprouting. It is far too soon for them, I do hope we don't get any frost or snow to kill them off.
We have another new tangle from the Mother Ship itself - Waybop. I have had several attempts at it. I started out following the basic step-out on an original Zentangle® tile:-
Next I followed the Waybop video, with Maria showing us the way and Rick commenting. The video is available on the Zentangle® Mosaic app. I took one photo, then realised there was more that could be done. I have posted both here as I am unsure which one I prefer.

Second version:-
Finally I did a Waybop tile of my own design. The Mooka tangle which I drew in green reminded me of the snowdrops I spoke of earlier. Again two photo's as I added more to it and then slightly regretted it as I think I prefer the original.
