Diva Challenge #321
Non Dominant - Aura Challenge
Tangles tried:
Afterglow by Carole Ohl
Rain by Suzanne McNeill
Printemps, Crescent Moon, Keeko, Msst, IX, Sez - Zentangle originals

I've done this yesterday evening and my shoulder and arm muscles were very tight and sore afterwards. I did the shading with my right hand because this morning my muscles was too sore to try and shade it with my left hand. If I ever do this again, I will do a tangle, rest and do a tangle, rest, etc. What I found out was that it was easier for me doing circles with my left hand (non dominant) than straight lines and when I drew Keeko, I've done it from left to right in the first line and then tried from right to left in the subsequent lines which was much easier. So all my empathy to the left handed people in a right handed world when it comes to writing - I think it would have been much easier for left handed people writing from right to left than the other way round. 😄

String by Adele
Tangles:
Strutz - Sarah Fowler
Tessell - Judy Okawa
Printemps - Zentangle original

The ring was supposed to be tangled using Tessell, but it ended up with a combination of Tessell and Printemps because I had to take the opportunity to learn from my "mistake" where Tessell did not go the way it was suppose to be. Sorry Judy, I will use your Tessell again!

Diva Challenge #308
"MacNCheese" - use your favourite tangles
Tangles used:
Bales (filled with Yincut), Crescent Moon, Printemps, Hollibaugh, Msst, Flux, Chillon, Hibred, Knightbridge, Meer, Tipple, Diva Dance, Shattuck  - all Zentangle originals

I've started with a string and filled it with Bales, Crescent Moon, Printemps and Hollibaugh. (I like the "new" version of Crescent Moon by Rick). I did not like the shape of the Bales part and added more Hollibaugh and filled this with various tangles. The tangles were not well executed, but I like the end result.

The bottom line is that I have no MacNCheese tangles, but Zentangle as a whole is my MacNCheese.

Part of "finish my tile, alphabet challenge"
String "L" by Joey and started with LeeLee by Sharon Robinson.
Othr tangles used:
Lamar - Margaret Bremner

I've practised Lamar, but it does not look as good as what Margaret did. 😢. Leelee is a delightful tangle with a lot of wonderful variations. The variation that I choose on the right side, reminds me of windmills as well as butterflies.

String "g" by Joey
Tangle to be used: Gnarly - Barbara Finwall
Other tangles used:
Gneiss - Zentangle original
Gotcha - Karin Gordyns
Geisel - Debra Castaldi

Sorry to say, Barbara, but I am not a fan of Gnarly. I think it is because I really do not know what to do with it so that it can come to its own right. I've used the "hefty hack" technique for the background and used watercolour pencils for the shading and some colouring in.
