Diva Challenge #191: "Monotangle : Betweed"

Have not really had much time to post much of anything. I actually completed most of this earlier in the week but was out of town most of the week and would not have had a means to post it. So I procrastinated on doing the shading until tonight. Also trying to get things done for our local Art Association gift shop. That will be an on-going process during the month. Glad that I was able to finish. I also get an extra hour to post as this is the weekend that turn the clocks back on hour as we stop Daylight Savings time. This weeks challenge is a monotangle using Betweed. I have used this tangle a lot and had mixed results with it.  For this challenge I decided to just play a little. I played with different pens and color. Here is what I came up with. I hope that you enjoy it.

I used pink, purple, brown, and black microns. I also used green and blue Sakura Gel Starburst pens. They do show up better on the Renaissance tiles than the black tiles. The shading is done with colored pencils. 

This was a little hard to photograph. Not sure if it would have shown up better as a scan. The green colored pencil did not come through as strong on the photograph. Over all I am pleased with the results. As I stated in the beginning I was playing and really did not have a expectations. I wanted to use Betweed in different size and shape spaces. 

I know this is late, but if you have not, go to I am the Diva and look at all the other great pieces. I hope I have time to look at some of them. I usually try to comment on most of them. Has been harder lately as I do not like to look at what others have done until I have finished mine. 

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

Go Tangle !!


  1. I like your Betweed variations, Donald. I also like the colors.

  2. What a nice playfull challenge! Bravo!

  3. A playful Betweed Party. Well done, Donald. Love the colors. The ribbon turned out very well, and Betweed filled all your spaces nicely. I'm glad that you got your challenge posted. I was watching for it all week.

  4. Fun tile, Donald. I like that narrow section that divides the whole tile. I never thought of using Betweed as a string. Great idea and well done tile. I don't know why we all fill our lives with so many things to do. You'd think Zentangle would help us to slow down HAHA!

  5. Really like the colors on this and fun to do betweed in different sizes and sections.

  6. I love the green and the way the pencil shading shifted the colour. Really interesting over all. Bold and gorgeous

  7. Very nice tile. Great variations of Betweed and fun colors:)
