Diva Challenge- 187 Blind String

IamTheDiva has challenged us to create a Tangle using a Blind String. That means, we draw a string on a tile with our eyes shut.

This was a fun challenge. We could use any patterns we wished. Here are Mine:

3-Fohbraid-Sandra Strait
4-Star Map-Suzanne McNeil

Tile Size: 3.5 x 3.5 inches.

This is the first time I have used patterns numbered 1,3, and 4. They are great patterns. Star Map is a wonderful background fill. It doesn't clutter up the Tile, yet it is a very interesting pattern. I'll be working with these in the future.

 This is my Blind String with which to base my challenge Tile.

This is my finished Tile.

A special thanks to everyone leaving Comments on my Leaf String challenge, last week. I very much appreciate the helpful input.

Challenge #186- Leaf String

What a fun challenge this was. I choose an Ash leaf to base my string on for this challenge.
It is a real free form design on a standard 3.5 x 3.5 inch Tile. Other than auras I'm unaware of a single pattern in this Tile. (Are the pearls considered an embellishment, a fill element, or a pattern?)

Thanks a bushel and a peck for all the wonderful Comments on last weeks Challenge.

Challenge #185-Duo Tangle

This weeks "IamTheDiva" Challenge is to create a Duo Tangle using only two patterns.

1-Diva Dance by Zentangle and
2-Phi-Cops by B-Rad.

This challenge was a challenge for me. This one took more time than privious challenges. It was a fun challenge and I finally finished it, by which I mean I stopped before I started making it worse.

My Tile size: 3.5 x 3.5 inches.

Thanks to everyone who so graciously left comments on last weeks Challenge.

Challenge #184- ING

This weeks Challenge is to use a new Pattern from ZenTangle, by Molly Hollibaugh. It is called, "ING." A lot can be done with this pattern and it is a lot of fun to draw. It is easy to use, and the results can look very complex.

My Patterns for this Challenge that I can name are:

1- ING, Zentangle.
2-Xplode, Margaret McKerhan.

Tile Size: 3.5 x 4 inches.

I was going to make another Black and White Tile this week, but when I got to that decision point, the ING pattern looked just like the visual disturbance that I see in my eyes just before a Migraine Headache. It's a pre-warning for me and I head for the meds. It has saved me many times. What I see though, is not in black and white, but rather in color, and it shimmers and grows. So I colored it with the colors I see in my pre-warning. This part of my tile looks just like what I see in my eyes. I'd be interested to know if any of you who have been plagued with Migraines have seen anything like this.
