DIVA 364, Joey 217, IAST 244 and "Stonewalled"


"Stonewalled" - my favorite this week. Drawn on a 14 cm square paper and inspired by the leaves of a palm tree, a stonewall painting and actual occurrences.

In last week's Joey challenge #216 we used tangle 'Friendship'. While my 'official' and 'on time' tile depicted the mood at the time and caused 'Friendship divided', this week's Friendship is very 'reunited' again.

DIVA #364 - "Remake of a classic" - Rundle. I made my old tile April 24, 2016, exactly 2 yrs, 1 mth, 2 days ago, or 4 mths, 4 days after I started with Zentangle Dec 20, 2015.

This week's IAST Challenge #244 asks for Auraknot in a star string. I made mine in the style of my last week's "The Second Best Paradox Ever Seen".

Reading a book has become a complete new undertaking or a test for who gives up first.




And a splendid weekend to all!

DIVA 363, Joey 216, more...and the Ugly


Fun Tile with focus on Flip Leaves as per Helen Williams' Flips, Folds, Ribbon and String book. Now drawing petal or leaf flips is so much easier.

This kind of springtime tile has been drawn many times before by lots of tanglers. Now I have one, too.

The theme for DIVA Challenge #363 is AURAS, something I do not use often in my tiles. I chose Toodles and Auras only on one side.

'Friendship' divided (Joey's 216) or a rather off-centered IAST #243 zenbutton?

"The Best Paradox Ever Seen" was the title for a Paradox tangle tutorial video I saw by Sam on youTube. I couldn't resist, but decided to change it slightly and make it my version. Hence this is "The Second Best Paradox Ever Seen".

♻️ IAST #243 buttons up to go Zen. I made one on toilet roll paper. However, when it came to the shine my white charcoal pen nor the white color pencil worked on the colored pencils I used for the drawing. So I had to ask the help of Photoshop.

With Photoshop assistance...

Animal Happy Day

Afraid to adopt a blind dog? Mine is blind due to old age. Yes, he does bump into things and knocks them over occasionally. And yes, he stumbles over a rock while walking in slow motion on a road or misses a little pothole. But he never complains, whines, gets stressed out, or even feels pity for himself. He needs a bit more guidance, a helping lift occasionally, and human touch for reassurance, but other than that he is just like he was 15 years ago: my darling Shadow now with gray fur.

DIVA 361, Joey's 214, Helen's H and few other Loose Ends


DIVA Challenge #361 this week honors Earth Day and wants us to use a tile from recycled paper. I have been using recycled paper a few times before and I intend to keep using it occasionally. I made two tiles because one is actually not really 'drawn directly on recycled paper', but rather 'glued onto recycled paper', the cover of a Thai Mosquito coil box, which I have water-colored whitened to dampen the strong print. The other tile is drawn directly on... yes, have you ever given a toilet roll credit? I did!

Helen's A-Z journal - H for Hepmee. WOW! Well, if you haven't yet seen Helen Williams' fantastic version of the rather plain tangle Hepmee, by all means, click here and see for yourself. I promise, you will looooove Hepmee. She turned this tangle into a stand-out stand-alone beauty! Give me Hepmee any day.

I have been following Helen's journey through the alphabet ever since letter A and haven't missed a beat. My first reaction to seeing Hepmee was: big eyes, open mouth, chin down to the floor, and electrical wires raging havoc in my brain (if you know Hepmee that would have been your reaction, too!). What a clever double effect! I must say, very impressive! Then, once the initial surprise ebbed a bit it was my turn.

I started by drawing an uneven number of rays off the center circle, then adopted Helen's curved Hepmee lines, but instead of linking each ray, I connected every other ray and kept going until I reached the tip of the rays or had enough layers.

So this is my result.


Helen's A-Z Journal - H for Hepmee
Tangle Pattern: Hepmee



With #1140 I did my very first tile for Ela's daily challenges. The inspiration came from Margarete Gilge's tile she drew for Ela. Her Tupi at the bottom, despite the leafy look, reminded me of water spills. That explains my Tupi to be in blue.


Ela's Daily Challenge #1140 with Tangle Patterns: Tupi, Bladz, Jul, and Tipple
Tangle Patterns: Tupi, Bladz, Jul and a bit of added Tipple



I wasn't really satisfied with my Helen's Hepmee version. So I did some more... and now it looks like silly Jesters.


Helen's A-Z Journal - H for Hepmee
Tangle Pattern: Hepmee



Then on Artzyfartzy's youTube channel I found these 2 new tangles: Leafpod and Rosepod. Rosepod is probably not all that new or unique, but I do like her Leafpod.

My Helen's Hepmee lacked the flowery aspect. So another go at it was in order.

For this week Joey's challenge #214 has the tangle Spoken in the "Front and Center" theme we are following presently. Undoubtedly, my Spoken is in the Center...

...but I knew I had to do better with the 'F'-part of 'Front and Center'.

But this was my first tile - so totally un-me!

Ah! Finally I got my leaves for Helen's H for Hepmee and it was all just a shading matter. I confess, my Hepmee version is a version of Helen's Hepmee's version of Hepmee and thus very alien to the real Hepmee. But it was fun to draw.

Tangle Pattern: Hepmee



My last tile is a tangle I learned while drawing Ela's #1140 challenge: Jul. Although Jul has nothing to do with Tripoli, its triangle shape suits the Tripoli style perfectly.


Monotangle Pattern: Jul a la Tripoli style



Animal Very Happy Day

If you followed my post you noticed that I often place animal rescue videos published on youTube by Viktor Larkhill from Spain. He is the one who takes on animal abuse cases where others would throw the towel. Viktor never gives up on animals. What you may not know is that Spain has very loose-to-no animal laws. Viktor, now, has taken on the task to change that. What made me place this video is not so much the fact of the announcement, although that alone would be worth it, but how people reacted to it.




"That's it Folks!" Thanks for visiting and have a splendid week.

IAST 240, Joey's 213, and Refresher 177


Here we go, another Joey's challenge (#213) surprise! Looks like I am still 'Building Bridges', but this time I left HaKrall at home and built my bridges with Frames alone.

IAST #240 is very much geometrical with Flukes and Cubine, adding the half geometrical tangle Elirob.

Refresher #177 from the website Tanglepatterns brought 3 new tangles for me to 'experience' with. Everything went fine with Lollywimple and Ponio, but Winflo...


Refresher #177 with Tangle Patterns: Ellish, Andromeda, Lollywimple, Winflo, Ponio
Tangle Patterns: Ellish, Andromeda, Lollywimple, Winflo, Ponio



Sorry, Nadine Roller. It looks gorgeous when you draw it, but I have visibly 2 left hands when drawing Winflo. Even my several different attempts to draw it this way or that didn't bring the result I was hoping for. So here are Winflo Bouquet, Winflo Liana, Winflo stacked, and Winflo vine... and I still have 2 left hands.

DIVA 360, IAST 239, Joey 212 & HaKrall Friends


Remember this tile? That is HaKrall & Friends. It was months back, September 8, 2017 to be precise, when Lynn Mead from A Tangler’s Mind published her post HaKrall and Friends – Building Bridges. I was so impressed, I bookmarked the post’s link, set a reminder to pop up every week on Sunday, but time flew by with me doing nothing but snoozing every wake-up call back to sleep for another week. So I did something that didn’t come easy: In order to gain time for my Zentangle projects I disabled my comment section for my blog posts in order to not feel guilty when I step back a while from me giving comments to others. Please forgive, guys, but I have a “TIWTD List” (This-I-Want-To-Do List) and I am getting ahead now albeit in mini steps. So here I am with one of my list items, Lynn’s fantastic HaKrall and Friends B’twined and Stoic (or Twile).

I started by collecting grid patterns. It became quickly obvious that Lynn had chosen all the best tangles for her masterpiece. I finally decided to go for a flowery theme….

Hakrall and Friends: Tangle Patterns: Flair, CC, Petal Pusher
Tangle Patterns: Flair, CC, Petal Pusher


Before I had finished the tile, it became blatantly clear, I didn't get what 'Building Bridges' was all about. Indeed, the time I spent looking for patterns I had forgotten about the instructions. So I dropped everything and went back to Lynn's page. I drew what she drew (a la learn by doing) and then I outlined her "Bridges".


Tangle Patterns: Hakrall, B’twined and Stoic
as Lynn drew it



I had an AHA moment and voila, tile #2 was born.


Hakrall and Friends: Tangle Patterns: Up and Across, Wisket, Y-Ful Power
Tangle Patterns: Up and Across, Wisket, Y-Ful Power



Then Joey's email snowed in with her 212 challenge featuring Relly Telly One. WOW! Under my hand was a tile with Huggins in the middle and Huggins looked...exactly like Relly Telly One. Two flies with one stroke!

Hakrall and Friends and Joey's Challenge #212 with Tangle Patterns: Huggins-cum-Relly Telly One, Fragment K4-cum-Palrevo, Xav-cum-Xav
Tangle Patterns: Huggins-cum-Relly Telly One,
Fragment K4-cum-Palrevo, Xav-cum-Xav



The following two tiles are "Building Bridges" failures I am proud of. Lynn, it was so much fun to search for tangles I could combine in any way, anyhow, and come up with great little tiles. Sometimes I had Bridges, then Tunnels, and Highways or Crossroads, but with each tile finished I wanted to do another one. Thanks so much for this interesting challenge! If anybody wants to check out Lynn's Hakrall & Friends - Building Bridges and read up on the instructions, click here.

Since I am still in the HaKrall Friends layout mode and mood I kept on through this DIVA #360 challenge sporting Shattuck and Tripoli, but minus bridges. However, I had to add one more tile... more along my style, too.

IAST #239 this week had us draw Tupuk, Flec, and Fassett. I have a good standing with the first two, but the latter always gives me a headache. So I thought what if I will give Fassett a spin? I like insects, so I started this challenge by drawing a Fassett abstract dragon-fly....


Inspired by IAST #239 Fassetted Abstract Dragon-fly
Fassetted Abstract Dragon-fly


Nope! Not there yet. But I had added the flower.... Hmm, maybe! Just maybe! I started a new tile and drew 3 different Fassett-spinned flowers...


Inspired by IAST #239 Fassetted Flowers
Fassetted Flowers


Weeeelll... No, not really either. Fassett and I are still not friendly. But now it is time to draw my tile. I tried to somehow connect the 3 tangles, but it wasn't to be. However, I like the lifted black middle part in Fassett. So there is still hope. And I hope, I will remember that lifted black triangle when the next Fassett challenge hops along.

And last but not least the flavor of the week tangles: Ilac by Ria Matheussen and AmyBaby by YuRu Chen.
