Weekly Challenge #215 - Labyrinth

This week's Diva Challenge was to use a labyrinth as a string... not a maze... a labyrinth. Hmmmm... the samples looked liked brains. I looked on the web, they looked like brains... or intestines... or I don't know what. Surely there was a labyrinth out there that would resonate. All I needed was one long boring meeting and the mystery was solved. What would we do without boring meetings?!!!

Pattern used: Copada

Weekly Challenge #214 - Earth Day

This week's Diva Challenge is to represent Earth Day. All my attempts to do something "globular" were epic fails, so I figured I needed to dial in the focus a bit closer. Being in a rainy climate, this represents the earth I'm familiar with.

Weekly Challenge #213 - Templates

This week's Diva Challenge was to use templates or household items to make your string. Not feeling particularly motivated, I just grabbed the first thing that smelled like a template and used my circles.
Patterns used: Auraknot and CO2

Weekly Challenge #212 - Fanz

The Diva Challenge this week was to use the tangle Fanz. I don't tend to like repetitive grid patterns, but it does some wonderful things when you put it in a circle!
Don't look at where I messed up. I'm trying to pretend it was intentional. Sigh.

Weekly Challenge #211 - Flux, and Zendala Dare #100

I combined the Diva challenge with The Bright Owl Zendala Challenge this week. Two birds with one stone, right? It came out looking a might Christmas-ish-y, but I like it. Beats doing homework. ;-)

Weekly Challenge 210 - Spiral

It's a busy week here with kids home for Spring Break, so I'm lucky to be able to pull from an old archive a spiral "opus" that I did a couple of years ago. Cheating, maybe, but it fits the Diva Challenge so perfectly, I couldn't resist... and leaves more time to make pie with the kids. ;)
Patterns used: Too many to list...

Weekly Challenge #209 - Touch of Green and Zendala Dare #99


This week's Diva Challenge was to use a touch of green. I had been working on some rocks to scatter about the workplace on Tuesday...
 

...so I just used the same pattern and tangled it. The gold is really so beautiful in person, but like others have mentioned, it just doesn't scan. Oh well.

I just love the celtic knots, but they're not easy to replicate freehand!

And Antonine convinced me to try the Zendala Dare at Brightowl, She's right. That's a big time commitment, but it's a different way to tangle!
