7F5R Tea & Tangle Tuesday and Fortnightly challenges

Another 7F5R TTT challenge. This is from December 21 and sported the weird named tangle !ion!ioo. I never liked the single version of it, but when I saw the several layered one proposed as a variation, I warmed up to it. And because it is Christmas I added a bit of green to the red.

Square One

Square One Purely Zentangle December 4-10 featuring the tangle Miff. I have one Miff stripe and several "Miffed" and "Miffted" alterations.

Square One Purely Zentangle November 27 to December 3 with tangle Oasis. Everything on this tile is Oasis, from ground ribbon over trees up to stars including the star dots, which, unfortunately, are way too far away to be recognized.

Missing are day 1, 4, 8 and 12, Yeap, there is still work to be done in this Project Pack... Ah! this is stressful! And it feels like I am working on an outdated project.


Inspired by - Tangles...

Inspired by...Arabel. Every once in a while I just want to draw a grid tangle straight forward without altering or distort the original. The paper is awful to draw on, but I guess you can't argue its impact.

Inspired by...the grid tangle Arabel
Tangle Pattern: Arabel



Inspired by...the new tangle Akebia by Gloria Barocio with some awkward Fescu on the first tile and as a corner element on the second.

Inspired by - Akebia with Fescu
Tangle Patterns: Akebia and Fescu

Tangle Patterns: Akebia


...And Inspired by - Video Tutorials by Zentangle Artists

YouTube is the go-to video channel when looking for Zentangle video tutorials by Zentangle artists. Many are easy to follow tuts like the Eva Wu Zentangle ones, which I found while visiting the Time for Tangling website. Linda G. followed and posted a tile Eva Wu demonstrated in her video 1345. It looked easy so I gave it a try, too...twice actually. The first in color, drawn on a ♻️ recycled packaging cardboard. I didn't like it so I gave it another try just mono-colored on a water colored background tile and I am much happier with that version.

Tangle Patterns: Mooka, Flux and Spirals



Another video tutorial this time by Ria Matheussen - actually her first tutorial - called "Create your own winter greeting card". I combined it with the Dec 4-10th Square One's tangle prompt Miff. I added Miffed (or is it "Miffted"?), an unofficial, not introduced to the public alteration of Miff.

Shie Naritomi had another video tutorial I ached to follow. The tangle is called Star-Ing and the YouTube video is here

Another Eva Wu video tutorial - #1283. The leaves with the mooka pairs are drawn in a growing spiral.

My new Tangle...

..."Knobby Fesue I.Am" (please note: it is feSUE as in my name and not feSCU), here with Paradox in a 69 string I found on Pinterest. The inspiration to "Knobby Fesue I.Am" I found yet on another Pinterest page.

It is getting more and more difficult....so here the first set of my second puzzle quiz - 4 in all. "SANDBOX" is once again your clue and - as always - the results are at the bottom of this post in the smallest, tiniest font size just in case you accidentally scroll down and read what you didn't wanted to read just yet.


Puzzles 1-4. Good luck.

A private thought: if this is Global Warming I don't want to experience Global Cooling. Wow! it is ... ehh...pretty cold here and has been for the last 2 months and I live in the Chonburi area of the tropical country of Siam (Thailand). However, C.O. thoroughly enjoys it.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you
can make the best out of this crazy time

GratiTangles 2020; Square One; Refreshers 216, 217, 218; 7F5R Tue & Fortnightly Challenges....


I barely survived last month's INKtober marathon challenge when I was swept into GratiTangles 2020 in November. I am a little bit overwhelmed so I decided that a) I pick the tangle prompts randomly and b) will draw monotangles or mix some days onto one tile. 

GratiTangles 2020 day 3 - Fife....well, I changed it a bit hence it is Fake Fife...and I did it in a Phi grid, so I could call it Phi Fake Fife.

Tangle Patterns: Fife



GratiTangles 2020 day 4 and 7 with tangles Ixorus and Auraknot respectively. Over night creepy Ixorus is sliding  its way out from under Auraknot and will probably land on top of it.

GratiTangles 2020 day 9, 20 and 24 with tangles  Mooka, Opus and Twing respectively.

♻️ GratiTangles 2020 day 8, 12, and 30 with respective tangles Shattuck, Pokeleaf and Pokeroot, and Ing on a recycled packaging tile.

GratiTangles 2020 day 7 and 17 with tangles Auraknot and Squid.

Tangle Patterns: Auraknot and Squid



GratiTangles 2020 day 30 with tangle Ing. This is pure Ing with all lines curved, 4 strands of it. Once it was in this state I  put a transparent sheet over it to check how best I can add to it, make it more dramatic, but... Sometimes less is more.

GratiTangles 2020 day 30 with tangles Ing
Tangle Pattern: Ing



GratiTangles 2020 day 10 with Rain...camouflaged within leaves. Or maybe this is a new tangle? I could call it Rainfall? Like leaves are falling in the rain? 

GratiTangles 2020 day 10 with Rain...camouflaged within leaves
Tangle Pattern: Rain



GratiTangles 2020 day 26 with tangle Rumpus. Rumpus is not one of my favorites somehow. Maybe because it is a ball of messy stuff in it. So I tore mine apart. Now I call this "new" tangle "Rumpus Asunder". 

GratiTangles 2020 day 26 with tangle Rumpus.
Tangle Pattern: Rumpus Asunder



And this is day 11 in GratiTangles 2020 with tangle Betweed. I had no real idea what I was going to do with this tangle so I started drawing tubes. When I approached the finishing line I realized I made a huge mistake: I should have drawn this tangle on a blue tile! As it is, the tubes turned very much into sea sponges. Watch below 30 second video.

GratiTangles 2020 day 11 with tangle Betweed as sea Sponges - Update: Drunk Betweed
Tangle Pattern: Betweed UPDATE: Drunk Betweed


These sponges are considered oceans vacuum cleaners. If you have never personally seen them, let alone in action, watch this interesting demonstration on this YouTube video (30 seconds).




I posted this Betweed tile in the Facebook group Anything Goes - Tangled Art For Everyone when I had 2 surprise reactions. Ljerka Ledenko asked permission to try my tile, which I gladly granted. An instant later I found this wonderful tile by Ljerka in the comments. I thoroughly love it! ...

Drunk Betweed curtesy Ljerka Ledenko.

...and PeteR Grantham was sure, this new version of Betweed deserves an extra name. So Ljerka came up with Drunk Betweed. I liked it and thus it is now 'Drunk Betweed'. Thanks Ljerka for drawing this wonderful tile and the name and thanks to PeteR for suggesting a new name should be thought out.



GratiTangles 2020 day 29 with tangle Keeko.

GratiTangles 2020 day 28 with tangle Cyme - speak 'see-me'. I learnt that from Pat Mathes over at FB group ZIA Tips, Tricks, and Techniques that runs the GratiTangles 2020 inspirational challenge.

Tangle Pattern: Cyme



GratiTangles 2020 day 14 with tangle Goudgeous, and 7F5R Tusday challenges Nov 17 with Zinger and Nov 24 with SeZ squeezed in while kept simple. I only just started doing 7F5R challenges with the Staghorn tile below being my first one, or better, an apology tile because I placed GratiTangles tiles in their FB group and was asked to remove them, which I did. A few hours later I got another message now allowing GratiTangle tiles being published in their group. Oh, well, next year maybe. Meanwhile I check in with 7F5R every week for a new challenge prompt.

GratiTangles 2020 day 14 with yet another Gourdgeous tangle, day 29 with Keeko and a very altered Vega as a sub GratiTangle suggestion. Then in the FB Group Square One Purely Zentangle from Nov 13-19 we had the tangle Walkthrough.

My first tangle for 7F5R (7 Forests 5 Rivers) Tuesday's challenge. The November 3 challenge features a tangle called StagHorn - the white lines inside the black spaces. I point it out because when I uploaded it in the corresponding FB group Debbie E. New, the tangle's author, didn't recognize her own tangle at first.

Tangle Patterns:  Staghorn with Printemps



7F5R Fortnightly Theme Nov 16, 2020: the tangle Luminesque. I didn't like the Christmassy tile so much so I made an almost monotile with Luminesque, accompanied only by Javik.

Inspired by... the new tangle Flow Leaves by Miranda Gerber garnished with Mooka and Tipple. If you think it is a bit too colorful...this tile is dedicated to my friend Uschi in Switzerland who loves colored artwork. Uschi, I hope this cheers you up a bit....and if only for a minute or two. Thinkin of you and Meredith.

And here the new puzzles. Good luck.

Sometimes a rescue may take years and you may ask why bother. The answer: because in the end it is totally worth it. Here is the case of Nina, a blind scared pup, with the best gift to the rescuer Viktor Larkhill.



Thank you for visiting my page. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving with all your family members together. Maybe you even considered inviting that lonely neighbor next door... ???
