Okay, okay, I will calm down. The postman arrived just as I was reading this week's Diva Challenge. We have a guest blogger, Jen Crutchfield CZT. She is asking us to use two to three colours and said she had gone back to basic tangles in order not to focus too much on the difficulty of any pattern.
Back to basic tangles was like music to my ears. Just what my Starter Kit would be good for, I got out the icosahedron and the legend along with a proper deckle edged Zentangle tile, much nicer than my badly cut bits of basic sketching paper. As instructed, I decided to role the dice and use whatever tangle came up on the legend. The first number was 19 - Purk, hmm... not exactly what I would call a basic tangle but anyway go with the roll. After that came 15 - Flux with which I mixed a bit of Tipple, 18 - Bales and 17 - Zander. Excuse me, but what is the point of a twenty sided dice if all the numbers turned up are next door to each other lol!
For the colour I used Derwent Graphik Line Painter, colours Billy and Tickled. Can you guess which one is called Tickled ? Yes, that is right, the pink one lol. Quite what Maria and Rick would think I don't know, and I am not sure I like the result myself. :-)
BTW! If anyone can help me with a sense of scale when photographing tiles as discussed in my post here I would be grateful for any advice. For the moment I have put a back view of my new Zentangle tile and the dice into the picture, but I would rather present just the tangled tile:-
Beautiful tile! Love the colours and the composition.ReplyDelete
I'm happy that you got your Starter Kit!ReplyDelete
We all know we can draw on every paper with every pencil but with the real thing? It's more than amazing.
As is your tile!
It looks like a curtain who goes up for Flux and Tipple.
I like it!
Love your bales and the colours you've chosen :) lucky you getting a tangle kit :)ReplyDelete
How fun to get a kit from Zentangle.com. I treasure mine so much, that I've never used it LOL! I also have tons of other official tiles though to work on. I like your colors. If you look at Maria's work, she often uses color. She just calls it ZIA, Zentangle Inspired Art, at that point.ReplyDelete
That is good to know about Maria using colour. What a pity you haven't used your kit, but at least it is in mint condition lol. I was interested, watching the DVD, to note that Maria fills in the black areas in a much more sketchy way than I thought would be the case, it gives me hope.Delete
I like the tangles and the picture too :)ReplyDelete
Super Cool !ReplyDelete
The kits are nice. I got one as a gift when I first started tangling. I like your colors in this. I have used the string that you used in my Basic class for a long time.ReplyDelete
How great you got your starter kit!! Very cool. Thank you for sharing your process!! Wonderful tile that you created ... and in a reply on your other post, I shared what I do :) :)ReplyDelete

Wonderful! And how exciting about your Official Zentangle Kit. One of these day's I'll order one too. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
I enjoyed your blog-conversation! The result is very pretty and looks like a scene between two curtains.ReplyDelete
For some reason I am technically challenged today...hope this comes across.LOL! This is my third try ...if at first you don't succeed and all those quotes. Sounds like you had a lot of fun creating your tile today for the challenge. Your color choices are great and I like your tangles the dice chose for you...what a fun game.ReplyDelete
Oh, I have Started Kit envy - I've never had one and I do want one! Your tangles are great and I love the little easel you used to display your tile! AxxxReplyDelete
It's a great tile the way it is arranged and the color just falls into place wonderfully. The shades are blended nicely and feel relaxed. Nice job! Sarah.ReplyDelete
Your tile is so lovely :-) I like the composition of patterns and the colours you used!ReplyDelete
