The Diva's Weekly Challenge #210: Spiralstring - that's the thing!
I like spirals very much, but I don't often use them - don't know why. So this challenge was a good occasion to turn around! 

Thank you for your nice comments and have a good week.

Later, on 25.03.

I tried a Zia with spirals. The paper is a light grey sketching paper. Pens: Sakura Micron, Tombow Brush Pen, white charcoal and black pencil.

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #209: Saint Patty's
The Diva asked us to use something green in honour of St. Patrick's Day.
I took String #16 because P is the 16th letter in the alphabet and tangled tangles with P as Purk, Podz, Por Fin and Puffle. And then I used my new Tombow Dual Brush Pens. They are absolutely great. This is what I created. 

At the weekend I tried my new Tombow Dual Brush Pens and tangled this tile. You can see a very nice wash on it. I poored accidentally my nice cup of Verbena tea over it after I finished the coulouring. First I wanted to curse but then I looked at my tile and had to laugh. It looks so great. I'm sure if I wished this effect I hadn't achieved it. The accidents in life are not always bad.

May all your accidents turn out so well - God bless you and have a nice week.

The Diva's Challenge #208: Duotangle Cubine vs Pokeroot

I like tangles with 3D-appaerances and I like organic patterns like Pokeroot.
So this challenge was a special fun. Thank you Laura!

And here is another one. I couldn't resist...... to tangle this Lady's shirt and give her a tattoo. Could it be that the first hints of spring give me some funny ideas? Yeah, yeah spring is coming! I hope that everybody here in the northern hemisphere can feel the coming of spring and that the snow is melting away together with greyness and dirt. 

 Have a wonderful day and thank you for visiting.

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #207: UMT Unbatz by Sandy Hunter, CZT

So, what shall I say about this tile, it's definitely not my favourite one. It's obvious for me because of the sphere in the middle. I'm not anymore sure, what I intended, but it's not how it should look. But you know what, it was relaxing to tangle away and not thinking about the outcome. That's Zentangle!
For the first time I filled the string with a light wash of colours before I started tangling. I think I will do this again, it looks quite nice.

By the way for Unbatz I drew first the little orbs and than the bows around them. For me this way it was easier to get a regular row.

Recently I finished this one. 
Somehow a pretty Lady found her way on to my paper. ;-)

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #206

The Challenge this week was to try to use materials and tools we usually don't use. Laura cut her thumb and therefore couldn't tangle with her pen she's always using. So she got this funny idea. I have some really nice pens in different metallic colours. They have a rather thick stroke. It was very different from tangling with the Sakura Micron because you can't draw fine lines with them. But I enjoyed it very much, because I hadn't to draw with my glasses on as I normally have to. Thank you, Laura!

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #204 is to tangle a Valentangle. This is my contribution.  

This ZIA was a nice weekend-job. I cut a piece of kraft paper and glued it on a white drawing paper. I like to draw on tanned paper, but can't find it here anywhere.

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #203 was an UMT (Use My Tangle) and we had to use the tangle Athitzi by Eleanor Holt. 

It was so grey and cold outside that I wanted some colours and flowers. It's a fun tangle and it was Zen to tangle away. 
I had a nice afternoon with a new class of 5th and 6th graders (11 to 12 years old). They are so wonderful and curious it will be a pleasure to teach Religion. We had some kind of a philosophical lesson today. We talked about the big questions of life. It's a good possibility to get familiar with each other. After such lessons I know again why I love to teach Religion. It's not always this easy because a lot of kids don't know a thing about Christianity and are not willing to learn something about it.
