Challenge #133 : Tipple & Ciceron

The Diva´s Weekly Challenge # 133: “Tipple – love it or hate it?” Part 2
Today I tried the new tangle Ciceron. It was designed by Mariët Lustenhouwer (see here). Thank you Mariët for this beautiful tangle. I love it so much. During I practiced Ciceron I had a thought of combination with Tipple. And here is the result:

The challenge is to try Tipple, a little or a lot, whatever we are comfortable with.

Summer And Sun


I just managed it! This is my first entry to Piarom´s Mix It Monthly (see here).
This picture was inspired by the shapes and textures in Piarom's necklace.

Ich habe es doch noch geschafft! Hier ist mein erster Beitrag zu Piarom´s Mix It Monthly (siehe hier).
Die wunderschöne Kette hat mich sofort an Sonne und Sommer denken lassen. Also legte ich los. Nach einer Vorgrundierung mit Aquarellfarben zeichnete ich drauf los. Und zeichnete… und zeichnete…und das Blatt war dann doch ganz schön voll! Dann noch die Farbe. Fertig!
Ich bin etwas skeptisch mit dem Ergebnis – denn weniger ist manchmal mehr!

Celtic Challenge # 31 - The Second

Judy West had posted her Celtic Challenge #31 on her blog Creative Doodling with Judy . This is my second contribution to this nice challenge. My first painting see here.
First I colored the background with watercolors. After drying and tangling I colored and shaded the patterns.

Challenge #130 - Wallflowers

The Diva´s Weekly Challenge # 130: UTM v. XIX Henna Drum
Every first Monday of the month is a UTM challenge (UTM = Use My Tangle)
This time Laura selected the tangle “Henna Drum” created by Jane MacKugler (CZT®).
Henna Drum is a very delicate pattern. Also I wanted to use the tangle Cubin this time because of the nice 3D-effect. I took much pleasure by drawing.
My tile is named “Wallflowers”



Thanks to:
Rick and Maria from Zentangle® for Cubine, Emingle, Flux and Jonqual
Jane MacKugler (CZT®) for Henna Drum
Laura Harms (CZT®) for selecting Henna Drum for this UTM Challenge

Moreover I practiced different ways of coloring. Last week I made a copy of “Rank Growth” (Challenge #129, see here) before shading. Here are two versions:

Rank Growth #2 (Challenge #129, coloured version)


Rank Growth #3 (Challenge #129, coloured version)


Now I´m looking forward to our vacation trip! So take care and have a good time!
