I Am the Diva Challenge-Skye

I tried this to tangle this to the point of tears two weeks ago. But after having a break and just drawing it in pencil we've come to meet in the middle, this tangle and I. I'm exhausted. Skye burns my brains out.

It's a String Thing #146 'C'

Let them eat Cayke. 
That's about all I've got folks!

I am the Diva Challenge- 'Ellish '.

Thank goodness this is not a Celtic knot kind of tangle. After trying out Skye it's going to be awhile before I get into those knotted things!  
This is a nice tangle and I'm sure I'll use it sometime again. 
With stepouts.

Joey's Weekly Challenge-14 XIV

I used all tangles except for cheesecloth. 
Good choices for tangles. I've been working on a book that has a lesson each day in it and it's really helped with my focus. I think we all know what one it is. But I had a great time and colored with ink and colored pencils.

IAST-#145 Skye

I had given up and beat myself up over my 'failure' on the first tile. But a new day came and I knew I had to try to make a go of this tangle if not for me, but Ms. Bruno who leads us along each week on an adventure of strings and mix of creativity. 
So here is a tile finished with pride,-- for you Ms. Bruno. 

Diane and Carolien's Challenge-'#, F, O'

Here is 4 Mom, Opus, and Fassett. In spring happy colors. 
Later ladies!

Diane and Carolien's Challenge- 'G J L'

I used La Bel and Jax and one I didn't write down. Onto the next!

Two by Tuesday: Echo

I tangled Opus, which reminds me of a musical score to a symphonic piece or just in its form as a tangle how it undulates and repeats. 
Thanks Ms. Cheryl for your kind words, birthday card and wishes, and gently including me in your challenge again. 
A true artist and friend!

Joey's Weekly Challenge-13 XIII

Eh. It's ok. I did the string though. But it's still a bit blah. 
Oh well 

I Am The Diva Challenge- 'a bit of black'

I tried. But it was interesting trying to vary tones. Darned Wink of Stella pen got a bit wild on me but in someways it saved my but by creating contrast. Love the Wink brushes, just not the flow...

Diane and Carolien's Challenge-VEY

Vigne, Ennies, and Yful-Power is what I chose. Please ignore the grid drawn in pen by my idiot self on the yful. Oops. 

It's a String Thing 'Mom'

Here is my entry for the week. Kind of ended up in a duotangle thing. Hollyhock will take some time to perfect, and my lines on 4Mom aren't great as usual but I like the contrast. I shall leave it without color!  Thanks

Joey's Weekly Challenge-Twelve 'XII'

This tile proved to be more therapeutic than a stunning work of art, but I needed this today. I'm just worn out from everything going on around me and this was a good break. Thanks for another great string idea!

Joey's Weekly challenge-eleven XI

This week had another challenging string but it worked out ok. I used a bit of Shon and the tangles Vache and Susa. Love the Neil Burley tangles!  Great picks!

I Am The Diva-UMT -Crux

Today's tangle to put it simply was a flashback to geometry class in sophomore year of high school. I tried to understand the idea but felt like I couldn't get much farther beyond the shape being just what it was. A great tangle now that I know it, but putting it into practice with something else is too much of a jump in the deep end. I tried hard not to belly flop this week...
Two tiles tonal and color
