Diva's Weekly Challenge #241: Guest post "Stones and Ceremony"

This week on Diva's blog, CZT Paula Bramante wanted us to tangle our vision of Stones and ceremony.
The first thing I remember when I see a pile of stones is Lagori. I and the kids in my neighborhood used to play this game a lot as kids. Back then, there were no PCs at home. They were only to be used once a week during the computer class!!

Here is my tile. I used Florz, Keeko and Knightsbridge

Let's keep tangling!

PS: I feel it looks like a 7 tier wedding cake.. :)

"It's a String Thing" #116

In this week's "It's a String Thing" #116, Adele has shared that  October 30 is National Candy Corn Day in the US.
Now I had never heard of 'Candy Corn' before. I googled it out, and learnt that it is a very popular and some nice looking candy!! I must remember to ask my cousin to get some from US when she visits us. :) 

Zentangle has brought people from across the globe sharing not just their tangle experiences but also their culture. And this I think is a fantastic thing.

Anyway, getting back to this week's challenge, the selected String is 
String#095 by Sandra Hart 
and the tangles ~
Chartz by Maria Thomas, Zentangle® co-founder
Cadent by Maria Thomas, Zentangle® co-founder
Cracked by Lori Howe
Confettus by Angie Shade 

I took the liberty of erasing some of the String lines, so it looks like my Candy corn are stacked atop each other. 
I am still learning how to shade my tiles. I feel I have done more shading than tangling on this one :)

Here's my tile

Diva's Weekly Challenge #240

This week, Diva challenged us to get inspired from the Fall/Autumn season.

I had already tangled on a leaf last weekend and I dint want to do it again(the leaf tearing, when I am in midst of tangling, does not make me happy and I lose all my zen trying to be careful!!)

I decided to use watercolors on my tiles.
Here are my tiles and also my tangled leaf.. :)

Let's keep tangling!

Diva's weekly challenge#237-Guest Post by Charlotte Carpentier, CZT

This week on Diva's challenge , we had a challenge from CZT® Charlotte Carpentier. She wanted us to "Find something to use for a stencil, gather your dye and spray, sponge, Q-Tip, etc. and make yourself a string. Revel in the discovery that different natural dyes, like wine or hibiscus tea, will look different on different papers. Then tangle them. You can even stay inside the lines if you like or go completely outside!"

I decided to make my own stencil. Here's a picture of it.

I used a syrup made from dried Kokum(its used a lot in Konkani cuisine to add some tangy flavor). I used a toothbrush to spray the Kokum syrup onto my tile. The color was bright pink when wet and then sort of took on a brownish hue as it dried. I took a photo when I had just finished spraying.

I used CZT® Carole Ohl’s Featherfall and Suzanne McNeill’s Feathers.

Keep tangling!
