My Danger Zone ?!- Challenge #142

The Diva´s Weekly Challenge # 142: Comfort/Danger Zone
This week Laura´s challenge is to find our comfort zone and to move beyond it into the DANGER ZONE!
So first I thought about my comfort zone when I was creating a Zentangle or ZIA. I wrote down point by point in my sketchbook (see below!). And these are the points for my danger zone:
- no shading
- use a string (No. 76 on TanglePatterns.com)
- drawing with several colors
- use never or rare used tangles (Enyshou, Isochor, MI2, ´Nzeppel, Verdigogh, Yincut and Zander )

Here is my tile…

… but I am not quite satisfied with that.
Using a string and these tangles is OK. I like drawing with several colors because some tangles get a nice look. But this tile has hardly any contrast and no depth! In the end I am not happy with it. I miss the shading very much!  
However I like this challenge. Only by doing unusual things I come to new conclusions and get new ideas.  
 


Thanks to:

Zendala Dare # 78 - No Spider Web!

After a break of some weeks I have a new zendala here.
Every Saturday you can find a new zendala template on Erin Koetz Olson´s (CZT®) Blog The Bright Owl. In this time we have got a lovely template from Erin Koetz Olson, CZT®. Immediately it reminded me about a spider web. But my zendala shouldn´t be a spider web.
Here is the result.



Erin, thank you for this lovely template!

Fengle & Quandry - Challenge #141



The Diva´s Weekly Challenge # 141: Duotangle – Fengle / Quandry
This week's challenge is to use ONLY the tangles Fengle and Quandry  (Follow the links for the step-outs).  I never used these tangles before. So at first I had to familiarize myself with these tangles and many ideas came to my mind. I love both tangles very much!

Golden Eye

This month the theme of Art-Journal-Journey Art-Journal-Journey is “She-Art” or “FEMININ”. A few days ago I posted my Moo “Golden Eye” (see here) to Moo-Mania. Now I integrated the Moo into this card.

Golden Eye - Moo


This is my first Moo for Moo-Mania Challenge.
A Moo is a little card sized 2.8 x 7 cm (1.1 x 2.8 inches). Really a little card!
This time is the theme EYES on the Moo-projects. Sometimes I try different things on little pieces of paper. Today I have drawn different eyes which I ´ll need for a bigger sized project. On this occasion I created this Moo.
The second picture is a montage of this Moo.
