Diva Challenge #256, Made by Joey #101 & Narwals for Square One.

Duotangle: Artoo & Boo-Kee

I love these two patterns. These were both created by The Diva herself, Laura Harms, named after her two boys.

Roman Numeral string series #1
patterns: 'dillo, Cle & Fleavy
on a "Renaissance" painted ATC

Joey is beginning a new string series of challenges using roman numerals and providing patterns. 'Dillo is making another appearance...I'm trying to resist the fishy influence of my last attempt at it with last week's String Challenge. Both Fleavy and Cle were new patterns for me. I like them both a lot.

Square One: Purely Zentangle
featured pattern: Narwal

I could not not participate in this weeks Square One challenge as one of my favorite patterns was the star of the show. I'm also doing my best to provide before/after shading pics so I can participate in Eni Oken's Shading Zentangle FB group. I always forget to take before shots/scans because my  cell phone cam is so crappy and much of this happens in the evening when lighting is problematic and I don't have a scanner at home and thus must coordinate with library hours.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Your thoughtful and generous comments inspire and delight me.


  1. I loved your "fishy" Dillo on IAST, but this one is great, too! I'll come back later to check out the Diva's challenge, since I haven't done it yet!

  2. The Diva tile is beautiful; I also love the paper you used for it.

  3. "... could not not". Hahaha. Threw me off a bit there. ^-^

    I really love how your Artoo blends so well with Boo-Kee. Your watercolour ATCs are always a joy to look at.

  4. All are beautiful! Especially I like the first one with your creative variation of Boo*Kee. It´s always a pleasure for me to see your wonderful work!

  5. Really love your Diva and Joey approach: so different and beautifully done!

  6. Your duotangle composition is wonderful--Artoo and Boo*Kee are playing so well together!

  7. Fantastic tiles, dear Michele!
    Your challenges for the DIVA and Joey are so beautiful- I love espacially the touch of blue in the DIVA tile.
    And the Narwal studies are stnning!

  8. I like the spiral you added to the Boo*Kee, and the color is stunning. I stopped adding to Eni's Facebook page because I found that I would always forget to take the "before" photo. I love the look of your Narway.

  9. Love your Diva and Joey tiles and like your take on all 3 Joey tangles. Regards

  10. Great tiles once again. I love your Roman numeral tile, you stuck to the string really well

  11. Gorgeous! All three tiles! I love the composition of the colored background and the tangles. It is so unique!

  12. I love what you did with the Boo*Kee spikes. They really enhance the tile's movement!
