Diva Challenge, ATC and crochet snowman

Hello together,

This week the diva had a very interesting challenge for us. "Ghosts of Tangles Past" is the theme. We should choose a tile that we tangled in the past and recreate it. The first time I heard about Zentangle and fell in love with it was in Summer 2013. The tile I choose is one of my first attempts in Zentangle.



For my diva tile I used the same patterns Knightsbridge, Tipple, Crescent Moon, Static and Fescu. I only changed Nekton into Keeko because it's similar but not so chaotic. The arrangement of the patterns and the string is also the same. Nevertheless the result is absolutely different. 


I also want to show you my new tangled ATC. I drawed this just for fun and made a "pure" and a coloured version of it.



And last another little crochet snowman from "Frozen Fever" for my daughters.


Thanks for stopping by. I look forward to your comments. 

Greetings 

TINA

  1. I burst into laughter when I saw your little snowman at the end. Nothing wrong with the little snowman, I just wasn't expecting to see him! I think you first tile looked very good, I wouldn't have known how to do Necton and the shading on the Knightsbridge looks better than basic. Nevertheless your tile from today does look improved

  2. Great work. My mom knitted me an Olaf for Christmas this past year.

    1. Thank you, Beth. Yes, Olaf is great, but he is much more difficult to knit or crochet. That's why I started with this little snowman.

  3. Your original tile is lovely. The second, you have become more relaxed and allowed the tangles to move more. Shading also is added in a more pleasing way. Love the negative space butterflies. And, I love that your adorable snowman sits on a Zentangle kit box!

    1. Thank you, Jean. Oh yes, you can see the Zentangle logo. I didn't recognized this yet. But it's a funny detail.

  10. Liebe Tina,
    Ich fand die Challenge diese Woche ausgesprochen interessant.
    Die "älteren" Tiles sind meistens schon richtig gut und trotzedem sieht man deutlich die Entwicklung.
    Auch bei dir... Die erste Zeichnung ist gut und sehr schön gezeichnet, die zweite dann mit ganz entspannten Details, dynamischer an den Strings, und besondersdie Schattierungen und Glanzlichter machen es noch lebendiger! Supi!

    1. Vielen Dank, Simone. Es ist wohl bei jedem ähnlich. Wir alle haben mit der Zeit gelernt, mit den Mustern zu spielen und uns nicht genau an die Anleitung zu halten.

  11. Es ist wirklich erstaunlich, was für ein Unterschied hier zu sehen ist. Ich stimme Simone voll ganz zu! Dein neues Tile hat viel mehr Tiefe und wirkt viel lebendiger.
    Liebe Tina, du hast ganz recht! auch ich habe 2013 mit "One Zentangle a Day! gearbeitet. Mir hat es als Einsteiger so geholfen!
    Liebe Grüße, Annette

    1. Vielen Dank, Annette. Ich find es echt witzig, dass ich durch deine Muster auf dieses Buch schließen konnte.

  12. I love your challenge tiles. Isn't it nice to go back and redo some of our old stuff and see for ourselves just how much we have changed and developed our "style". Your new one looks more relaxed and that is shown by the lighter touch in the pen work, Your shading is very well done. I love your butterfly ATC, I may have to try some more things with die cuts or stencils, since I have a multitude of both. I love your little snowman too, very nicely. Reminds me of the gifts that my mother used to make for all of us every Christmas. Nicely done!

    1. Thank you so much, Lezli. It was great fun to do all this and the butterflies I absolutely wanted to try. (They are all drawn not stenciled)
