Quandary and zendala # 43

 Posting again. 

A new tangle has been relased. And it is called QUANDARY. See for the step outs: I am the Diva
What a fascinating new tangle Quandary is. I love this tangle. I had so much fun. To be honest I had to practice a little before I could draw this ZIA. I drew it freehand, no grid.

"What make's someone an artist? Is it when you get paid for your work? Is it when you finally have a gallery show? Is it when someone else calls your work art? "

Wise words from Erin for us to think over. You want to read more about what she says about feeling/being like an artist?  Click here.

 Erin from The Bright Owl asked us to use your favorite tangles that will make you mostly feel like an artist. Well there are so many favorite tangles, but not every tangle is suitable.
And here is, very late, my zendala dare # 43. I finished it already a while ago, but forgot to post it.
Two versions. A black and white, and a colored one.

Zendala dare # 42 and Diva challenge # 104

Again two postings in one.

This is my contribution of this week's zendala dare The Bright Owl. I loved the template immediately when I saw it. It was so much fun to work on. Thanks Erin.

Diva challenge # 104 from Iam the Diva.
Well, the first one you see is the string 003. The second one is the final result. For this challenge I thought it would be a good idea to use a coloured leftover piece of paper from some other project. All my black micron pens, in all sizes, were empty so I had to be creative. But it turned out to be a real struggle this one. Usually I enlarge the template or string, to have more space to work with. This time I didn't. This piece of paper is 9x9 cm, which is about the  size of the original tiles of 3,5x3,5 I guess. And also working on this coloured piece of paper wasn't satisfying. Don't know why, but it was. O well I did my best, better next time. Have fun tangling you all.
