Duotangle: Paradox and Diva Dance
Zentangle HQ just released a video demonstrating a super cool mash-up of Paradox and Diva Dance, or a duotangle, if you will. I started this last night and just finished the shading now. I had so much fun with this and now I'm inspired to explore this more in my journal. The beauty of the tile though is the ease and flow of turning the tile is far less cumbersome than my landscape format sketchbook.

This one took a long time to take off. I seem to resist challenges where I'm to use grid patterns in small curvy spaces, but that's why they call them challenges.
I've been working a lot in my new sketchbook, prompted by a Facebook group challenge following along the lessons in HQ's Zentangle Primer. My self challenge is to keep it simple at first (if that's my inclination) and then get out of my comfort zone. I could have gone farther with this.
Travelling Tangles Project

I created this set of starter ATC's to accompany the set of tiles I created for a new swap. I spent a lovely morning last week making several new watercolor/tissue paper pages to cut down into tiles and ATC's.
Check out my last post for my new watercolor tutorial, I would love to hear feedback from you if anyone tries this or if there's any confusion or missing information when reading through it.
I also did some art tissue paper backgrounds too. Here's the link to Sue Olsen's tutorial on this super fun technique (here's a link to the Amazon page if you are able to purchase this tissue online). Inspired by a comment by Pat Mathes at Gramtangles, I'm going to try out a mash-up of the two techniques. Stay tuned;-)
This one's begging for an organic series
This was the first page using the art tissue
these colors were inspired by the same rooster I used in my tutorial
This was my next attempt, re-using the same strips of tissue.
I love this muted effect!
Finally, exploring some new patterns
Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Your thoughtful and generous comments delight and inspire me!
