Diva Challenge #139: UMT v XXI "8s Parte Dos" by Jane Eileen

This was quite the challenge. I remember when I first saw this tangle. It looked interesting and had plans to do it but never quite got around to it. Sorry that I did not. I like the tangle but it will take a lot more practice before I can do it and feel the "Zen". This was work to do this tangle. I got lost a couple of times but decided to push ahead. I do not like to throw out a tile and as in Zentangle® fashion, there are no mistakes, only unplanned opportunities. This was actually a fun one to put in variations and shade. If you follow my posts very often you know that I do not say that often. Here is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy it.





Tangles used: Featherfall, Scroll feather, the flower is one from the "S-ploration" exercise I posted about earlier and of course 8s Parte Dos.

Now I plan to spend some time looking at all the great pieces that others have submitted. I only looked at a few before. Will have more time to view slowly and take them in. If you have not all ready, go to I Am the Diva to look at all the pieces submitted.

Thanks for visiting. As always comments are welcomed, encouraged and appreciated.

Go Tangle !!

  9. Well done for persevering, Donald, and the lovely outcome. Something I didn't do and regret! Especially all my 'ruined' tiles. I will make sure I use them for something else!
