Diva Challenge #324: "Tangled Heart"

I was not sure about this challenge. I am not a heart type of person. I decided to do something because I really needed to tangle. This week's challenge is a guest post by Jessica Davies. During the summer, the Diva will have some guest posts to give her a little break and allow her some time with her family. Jessica chose this prompt due to some recent health problems and she used tangling as a way to help deal with the stress associated with it. There is a lot of anecdotal information of how tangling has helped a variety of people with a myriad of challenges.

I did decide that I would participate. I am not sure about what I came up with but the process was definitely relaxing. It is not that I do not like this tile, it is that it does not have the flow that I sometimes imagine in my head.  Usually the more I look at it, the more comfortable I become.  Here is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy it.




Tangles used: Tipple, Mooka, Zinger, Ahh, Zenith
Shading done with HB pencil

I chose a Zendala tile as I had not done one in a while and it is also a little bigger. I have not done a zendala for quite some time. May have to revisit that again soon. 

If you have not visited I am the Diva to look at the other pieces submitted, I would strongly encourage you to do so. You can use the above link to go there directly.  I usually do not look at what others have posted until I get mine done. Will try to look at as many as I can in the next few days.

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

Go Tangle !!

  1. Lovely! I think your choice of the zendala tile for this was spot on. The mooka behind the heart really give it movement.
    Thanks for participating in this week's challenge even though you weren't "feeling it" from the beginning. That's often where we find our breakthrough moments. :-)

    1. Thanks, I try to participate as much as I can but like all of us life gets in the way at times. I did enjoy doing this. The heart is not as prominent as some probably will be.

  4. The more I looked at your Zendala, the more intrigued I became. At first, I didn't even notice the heart and thought maybe you had decided to completely do your own thing. Then I saw it and realized you very much did your own thing AND still responded to the challenge. I know this is an old fashioned thing to say, but COOL.

    1. Thanks. Was not thinking of it intentionally but after you mentioned it, the heart does get a little lost in all the organic tangles. Can think of a couple of metaphors but will let them go for now.

  5. When I looked at it, I thought you had twisted the Mooka to make a heart, but then I did see the nice heart you created. Wonderful tile, Donald!
