IAST 288. 289, 290, 291; Square One; 100DayProject April 14 - May 11


Square One week 19-25 with Javik. I am not surprised Javik got to be featured at the same time by two (!) different challenges, IAST and Square One. It is a most stunning tangle. Here on a watercolored distressed tile.

IAST challenge #291 with Zig Zag Track which can, but does not have to, end up in 4Mom. I didn't send it in because...well, be honest, where is Zig Zag Track? I can't well call it "a very free freestyle Zig Zag Track", can I.

IAST challenge #290, an angular cross string with Sikito and Edie. Angular? Maybe more like freaky. Some of my Edie reminds me of the ghost mask in the Scream movies. BOOOOOooooooo!

Tangle Patterns: Sikito, Edie



IAST challenge #289 with Rain and one or two as per own choice. I took Mock I.Am and on one of the tiles a added a little bit of Ruutz.

This is the tile I drew first for Adele;s 289, but it just turned out a bit too dark for the theme and too dirty.

Tangle Patterns: Rain, Mock I.Am




In my last post I published a IAST #288 tile which I thought was a bit on the weird side and I committed myself to (re)draw a more common tile. So this is it and I like it a lot better.

Inspired by...April 29 of the 100DayProject: Chartz. I actually really thought I can sell the petals of a flower as a zig-zag pattern. However, I soon realized I went a bit too far in my Chartz re-creation and assigned this tile to my theme Inspired by....

My 100DayProject titled...

*** 1Day1Tangle1Tile 2019 ***


Yes, I am still going strong a month into the game. Actually, I really enjoy every single tile of it. Probably because they are all monotiles as per my slogan: 1Day1Tile1Tangle. True, at times I get stuck with a certain prompt, but if I think about it long enough - I mean loooooooooong enough - eventually a design idea pops up. If not, I just wait yet a little bit loooooooooooonger....

I decided to group my tiles into 4, sequenced in dates, so at the end of 100 days I will have... I will have...ehhh, I will !hopefully! have twenty-five groups - if all goes well and I don't get stuck. In my last post I published the first 12 days in 3 groups, so here are...

...group 4 with April 14 Ruutz as leaves; April 15 Featherfall; April 16: Apacore; and April 17: Lee-Bee, only my second tile/Lee-Bee on newspaper.


100DayProject 2019 with group 4 with April 14 Ruutz; April 15 Featherfall; April 16: Apacore; and April 17: Lee-Bee
Tangle Patterns: Ruutz, Featherfall, Apacore, Lee-Bee



Group 5 with April 18 Reticulated; April 19: Typzi; April 20: Nymbis; and April 21: Beeline. As for Beeline...there is one spoiler that jumps my beautiful lineup. It's hard to control all fish in a school.  Beeline are fish, aren't they?


100DayProject 2019 Group 5 with April 18 Reticulated; April 19: Typzi; April 20: Nymbis; April 21: Beeline
Tangle Patterns: Reticulated, Typzi, Nymbis, Beeline



Group 6 with April 22: Knot Rickz; April 23: Spoken; April 24: Nik; and April 25: Lichen. Lichen is one of the prompts I had to think a bit looooooonger about. Then recently I used my feather duster and suddenly it clicked.


100DayProject Group 6 with April 22: Knot Rickz; April 23: Spoken; April 24: Nik; and April 25: Lichen
Tangle Patterns: Knot Rickz, Spoken, Nik, Lichen



Group 7 with April 26: Batumber; April 27: Emoball; April 28: Stonestory; April 29: Chartz. I guess the IAST 290 self-inflicted ghost theme has infected Emoball. Stonestory: this tangle is underrated and I love it, BUT! don't draw it on a red tile! Chartz: I certainly made a better job with Chartz zig-zag line here than in the "inspired by..." tile above.

Tangle Patterns: Batumber, Emoball, Stonestory, Chartz



Group 8 with April 30: Barney,  May 1: Tamisolo, May 2: Pea-Nuckle, May 3: Hollyhock. Is there anyone out there who loves Pea Nuckle? My Pea-Nuckle barometer is rising on the likability scale and is now heading straight towards the 'Love It' level.

Tangle Patterns: Barney, Tamisolo, Pea-Nuckle, Hollihock



Group 9 with May 4: Fife, May 5: Well, May 6: Konk, May 7: Umble. No further comment to these.

Update on the cats I fostered. 

All five are doing wonderfully well. The 2 babies that left for Bangkok have stepped out of their coats to do some serious laundry assistance.

Bangkok babies assisting with laundry

Gem, here with her the new mum, is definitely a favorite. Can you spot that real white gold pendant she is so proudly showing off?
New mum with Gem

Gem showing off her white gold pendant

Yin and Yang, the look-a-like, recently graduated from our famous local cat military school with another sibling. They learn how to eat in line and very close to each other without intimidating and stealing from the other. Honestly, while these two were with Bon and me, the room couldn't have enough corners during feeding time. We had to guard them the whole time and jump in if one only as much as lifted its head to eye the other.

So peaceful in their feeding line up!!!


New Cat Project

Expecting mum with her 2 chocolate brown babes

This mum is pregnant again and we try to convince her that she better stay with us, but although tame, she prefers to roam the www, but visits every 2 or 3 days. The 2 chocolate colored babes have been a no show for a few weeks already. Maybe they have a home? If not and you happen to see them tell them that we have a home vacancy for one of them already.



Animal Sad Day

I hate it when I see animals killing animals, but the word that accurately describes my feeling for men killing, abusing, or torturing animals has yet to be defined.





But that is not how I want to end this post. Here it comes...purest joy to live is best demonstrated in this video...

Animal VERY Happy Day

Ahh...this is much better. Much MUCH better!!!





I much appreciate your visit and wish you
an absolute fantastic weekend.

IAST 286, 287, 288; Botani 2019; 100DayProject 2019; Square One; Refresher 197, 199 and some more...


Facebook's Zentangle group Today's Tangle: Keep It Classic recently had the tangle Tripoli as a string prompt. In this tile I used Tripoli as both, the string and the filler.

Tangle Pattern: Tripoli in Tripoli string



Square One, a Facebook weekly prompt sponsor, featured the tangle Sonnenband for the week of March 29 to April 4th.

IAST challenge #286 with tangles Tunnelvizion (reminds my of Hypnotic), Mr. E, and Scape. For whatever reason this challenge didn't suit me somehow. (When you have a lousy tile, blame it on the challenge or the prompt provided. (Yessss!))


Tangle Patterns: Tunnelvizion, Mr. E, Scape



IAST challenge #287 - Easter egg string with tangles Hemp, Queen B, Henna Drum. I hope I was able to hide  my Easter egg well...

And - of course - I am still working on the March Botani-Tangles 2019 tiles, listed here in no particular order. Well, as I draw them. There are days when you don't feel like drawing a spiky pattern, and the next you can hardly wait to get your chores done so you can draw spiky tangles. Anyway, no spikes on this - day 19-21 - tile. The tangles are Aura-Leah, Ying, Peace Out.


Botani 2019 day 19-21 with tangles Aura-Leah, Ying, Peace Out.
Tangle Patterns: Aura-Leah, Ying, Peace Out



Botani 2019 day 22-24 suggested to combine the tangles Pozer, Petals, and Oke and the result? A half friendly-looking, spout lipped Werewolf with blown cheeks!

BotaniTangles 2019 with day 31 and Mumsy. I combined Mumsy with the tangle suggestion by Tangle All Around April 6 Drip-Drop. Unfortunately, Drip Drop became the main actor, but it really is a dedicated to Mumsy scene.

5 down, one more to go...(that was 2 days ago)

Tangle Patterns: Trentwith, Ribbon rose, Jasmin



Inspired by...Palrevo. I like geometric patterns and Palrevo in particular. So when the Facebook prompt for 100DayProject on April 11 suggested Palrevo, I jumped for it and made this extra and bigger tile for my running theme "Inspired by...".

Refresher #197 with tangles Tagh, Frunky, Trella, 2V, Rainbow Bridge. Finally I had time to continue with this tile saga... Still 2 recently released refresher prompts on my desk.

My 100DayProject titled...

*** 1Day1Tangle1Tile 2019 ***


100 days is longer than 3 months and 3 months feels like Mount Everest in the tangle world for me. Impossible to finish. I am still working on 1-month Zenuari and only just now finished March's Botani. So why oh why did I start this 100DayProject? The good news: with this challenge we decide the project and all its details, e.g.: landscape paiting, rug hooking, or cooking (all interest groups way outside my talents), so I stick to tangling, named my project "1Day1Tangle1Tile" with the tile measuring 6.4 cm square, and switched to "Positive Attitude".

So here we go...

April 2-5 with Garlic Cloves, Delys, Kitl, Chemystery

I like Photoshop and thus every once in a while I check out 'Art' done in PS. Sometimes the works are breathtakingly beautiful and at other times outright silly and all I can do is LOL. Click here to see some of these amazingly funny before and after masterpieces!

And I am ending my post with this picture. While you are chasing Easter eggs, she chases fish on her very own cat laptop. Happy Easter, everybody!

IAST 284; DIVA 387; Botani19; Zenuari2019, Square One; and Inspired by...


"Botani-Tangles 2019" is a challenge for the month of March and the prompts given are flower or flowery/leafy tangles to honor Springtime. Created by Lucy Farran, The Lucky Tangler, I was introduced to this challenge by Ragged Ray's recent post (Thanks, Jem).

So for day 1-3 we got Hollyhock, Loblolly, Sanibelle

Inspied by... Hollyhock. Yet another vine, another bookmark tile, but it is either that or throw the cut-offs away and waste good paper.

Botani-tangles 2019 prompts for day 13-15 - Podz, Nymph, Girlande. I picked this day sequence early on because I thought that was an easy tangle combination. Wow! Was I wrong! It was like having two left hands and I am right-handed. I spare you the first tile so here the 2nd ...


Botani Tangles 2019 with tangle patterns 13-15 - Podz, Nymph, Girlande

...and the 3rd. Maybe the tangle Girlande makes the tile more acceptable.

Inspired by...Repeat Pattern Stacks. It is NOT a Botani Tangle, but I had a reminder out that I should try to dirty a tile with a wet tea bag. So I did and it got rather dark. Plus I am still working on getting rid of my left-over paper cuts...

Weekly DIVA Challenge #387: "UMT - HaWy". One look at Hawy and I "turned the page". Hawy? Nowy! Then I read Margarete Gilge's post. Yes, even a trained perspective and geometric lines artist needed a few practice minutes under full concentration to get 'it'. And what an excellent free-hand Hawy she drew! So I dared....

...but decided that mine would be a free-spirited Hawy spiked with Hawy flowers. Me thinking that if I make a mistake, I can hide it!!!! Hence the flowers.


DIVA Challenge #387 with Tangle Patterns: Hawy, Nymph flowers
Tangle Patterns: Hawy, sort of Nymph



After I had done my 'free-spirited' Hawy I felt very much in the swing of Hawy and dared to do another one. Hence my Hawy zendala (again with flowers!).

Tangle Patterns: Hawy  (and flowers) zendala



Zenuari 2019 with day 24: Reticula and Fragments. Sunday morning while I was listening to the TV (I am often too busy watching it) I went through some of my sketches and came across a fragment I found on the net and had altered from square to triangle. I remembered Zenuari had a Fragment day, so I welcomed the sketch and started drawing. Once I had finished the tile I went to my Zenuari notes to check the day. "24" it said and it also said "RETICULA".

Oh!

I was so happy to be able to hook off another Zenauri day, but now I am back at the drawing board for day 24. That explains the 2 tiles here.

I am sorry I renamed the square fragment that already existed, but I can't find the original on the net anymore. If anyone has the link, please let me know in the comment section and I shall alter the name and text. 

Here the 'no reticula' tile with the triangle fragment ST2 and tangles Petal Puddle, Backsplash Duo, and Indy-Rella.


Zenuari19 Day 24 with tangles Fragment ST2, Backsplash Duo, Petal Puddle, Indy-Rella
Tangle Patterns: Fragment ST2, Backsplash Duo, Petal Puddle, Indy-Rella



The mini tile definitely has a grid (C2) and the fragment C14 is definitely fragmented, too.

I clicked the repeat button twice!....

I have to add this video as it was in our local news... Thank you, Thai Rangers!
