Diva Dare #111 Monotangle Mooka


Surprisingly this is my second monotangle for Mooka this week. I did one here over the weekend in response to Ray's Monotangle Adventure and the template he provided. Then Monday morning Laura presented this challenge. Funny/weird.

Zendala Dare 50: Growing Pains for Wendy



Erin at the Bright Owl Blogspot offered up Template 50 this weekend.
I started with the center and moved out from there.

No Recipe, just go by feel. Taste test often. Adjust as needed.

Outside which box? Diva Dare

Laura over at I am the Diva issued the 110th challenge this week - think outside the box. I still boxed this one but left the white tile in the holder and went for the black, then I picked up my sparkly Gellys and did some basics. Shading is interesting... it would not rub out as much as the grey pencils. Otherwise it was fun.

Mooka Monotangle

Ray over at Mindful Creations had a template this week as his Monotangle Adventure #3.
I drew it out and Mooka seemed to want to flow in.

Diva Dare #109 My Response

This as yet un-named tangle presented a challenge for me beyond Laura's Dare. I think I need to work on perspective (on the tangle as well as in life ;-)

I had some fun with a square string divided into squares, then playing with Tripoli, a tangle I have yet to master ;-)

Variations on Tesali

Variations 1-5

Tesali was designed by Elena Hadzijaneva. (or look here)

I am intrigued by Tesali and the various permutations of it, not to mention the tangalation possibilities. I spent the last week playing.
