Thanks Jen , for the fun weekly challenge #225 - You challenged us to use color and maybe use fewer rather than more.  I got away with four Pigma Micron colors if you don't count the black pattern colors and the brown chop.  I used Helen William's  freeform version of Aquafleur and added a little Helen Williamsesque heart just because I wanted to.  My favorite pattern in the world is Diva Dance (as I understand from the Diva herself) and having drawn from the outside in, I guess this one is Roll and Rock - or some such.  And oh - I most always use my Zentangle Kit box as the background for my pictures - seems like the right thing to do.

too much fun


Thank you, thank you for the fun challenge and for the opportunity to play, muse, meditate, get lost in the adventure and have fun.

I was going through my huge stack of Zentangle tiles today (which I highly recommend for the morale boost it is) and discovered several (OK - Many) tiles I've done over the last year, since tangling came into my life that I thought fit nicely into this challenge.  I think this one, from this last February is particularly suited to this challenge, especially since I generally don't feel my Auraknot tangles look very good.  So with no explanation as to colors, pens or method, I hope you enjoy this submission.

  1. Perfect pattern choice on the outer section to compliment the inner area. It seems to "dance" (pun intended) together.

  3. This is terrific. I think you picked great color combinations and they just happen to also complement the Zentangle kit box you use as a "frame" when you photograph your Zentangle Inspired Art. Not only your Diva Dance is dancing, your Aquafleur also looks like it wants to get up and join the party. PS: I consider you an honorary Boomer. I'm never doctrinaire. Well, almost never. ;-)

    1. Thanks Suzanne. Picking Micron colors is easy since there are only about six or so. I'll wear the honorarium with as much dignity as a really old guy can muster.

    1. Thanks Helen. Your art and lessons influence all my tangles. Having pulled a few calves at two AM in freezing weather in my ranching years, I appreciate the other side of your story too.

  9. This is absolutely beautiful! Love the colors you have chosen....they go so well with the tangles too. I love the diva dance tangle too and yet seem to struggle with it...sometimes I just need to practice and do a monotangle until I get a tangle "down". Lovely lovely works.

  10. Both are really beautiful and beautifully done! Great choices of colours, and using the top of your kit as a background is a great idea!

  11. I love your Diva! Perfect and clear with fine shading.
    The "Fengle" are nice as well. I myself have tried it once but without success.. This is an inspiration to try it again.
