Diva Challenge #306 + #307, IAST and more


Hello together,

this week is a UMT (Use My Tangle) week at the Diva Challenge #306 and Laura asked us to tangle "Amphora" by Lily Moon, a great Zentangle artist.
I started my tile with a "M" string in honor of my grandpa Manfred who died a few weeks ago and then tangled a monotangle of this beautyful pattern.


I also tangled a tile for my grandpa's funeral. I want to give this to my grandma because she couldn't be there because she was in hospital.



Last week Adele gave us a Pi string for IAST #186. I love this challenge because I love Pi. The chosen tangles Wacho, Pokeroot and W2 were the ingredients for a yummy pie tile.



Then I saw the latest Kitchen Table Tangle video today on the mosaic app. It was not a video  of Maria or Rick. This lesson was taught by Indy and Mazzy, Molly's daughters. It is so cute. You can see it here on the Zentangle blog. I found this so great, they both knew absolutely what they want to do and were talking so professionel. I wanted to try this, too. I worked through the lesson how they explained and tangled this: (also for the Diva Challenge #307)



In the post Molly talked about how she learned from her children and asked what we learned from children. I also learn a lot from my two daughters: their perspectives of the world but also new things about myself and I totally agreed with Molly that it is a great pleasure to have children and to work with them. I always enjoy these creative moments with my girls at home. Here you see their latest artworks.

Paintings by my daughter Kiara (6)
And they really painted this without help and absolutely knew what they want. My younger daughter for example insisted that this canvas stayed green although I asked her repeatedly if she doesn't want to add something else.
So in the end I was just the assistent who took the paint on a plate.

Last but not least I want to show you my latest sewing project: a violet heart pillow for my youngest daughter Yuna. So now there is one pillow for both of my girls.



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

Greetings

TINA

  4. Me too, like your work very much, very nice DIva tile, wonderful tribute to your Grandfather and a beautiful I.A.S.T. tile.(I find this challenge difficult and didn't join but I like your entry)
    Your children are still very young but it is very nice that they start already to paint and I always love work, made with love by children. Lovely pillows too.

  9. Hi, I really like your Amphora tile, it is so organized, very clean lines in there. Very nice. I also liked your Pi tile as well. You have given me some ideas on making a pi pie. I am so sorry to hear about your Grandpa passing; it is sad but also a necessary part of life. Very nice work in Zentangle.

    1. Vielen Dank, Simone. Meine Oma hat sich über die Karte auch wirklich gefreut und ja, Zingo ist echt klasse. Ich hab das Video von Indy und Mazzy dann mal meiner Tochter gezeigt und sie hat daraufhin auch gleich ihre Variante von Zingo zu Papier gebracht.
