Straight to it!?

'Straight to it' is the challenge for this week. I had to read Laura's post before I understood what she meant by that title. A tile only filled with straight lines it is.
A challenge I like, especially because I normally use curved and straight lines and doing just straight is a bit hard.
I do like the result though.


Last week I did not comment many entries (I always try to comment all), because we went to the south of the Netherlands for a few days. We went to a small town called Thorn, the white town it is called. A lovely town! Just to give you an impression:

'Relax, Bro'!!!!

'Relax, Bro' is Laura's advice (and challenge) this week.

I sat down with my headphone on, listening to shaman drums. Then started with four dots in the corners of my blank tile, connected them with a line and then a string. I realized that it was quite a while ago that I did a string (sorry, on the photo it is a bit hard to see).


And then I started with Paradox, just because that corner was asking for it. I tried to concentrate on each line and not thinking of the next tangle I would use. When a part was finished, I just looked at it and then decided what tangle came into my mind. Not the very difficult, but just my comfort ones.

I like the result of this 'basic' tile.

From hate to love!?

A monotangle: I like that, but ...... ohhhhhh it's Tripoli the tangle I never use because I can't do it.
"Skip the challenge this week", was my first thought when I read it.
But, I knew right away that I couldn't do that, that I had to try once more.
And so I started and ..... no idea why, but I was (am) able to draw Tripoli. YES, I did it!!!

I'm sure I will use it more now and I'm soooo grateful to Laura for making me step out of my comfort zone.
This tile is nothing very special, but for me: A great start of the week!!!!!

Black, very black

The first week of the month, so it's UMT week This time the tangle is Centre Square by Aleesha Sattva.

A very easy and very bold tangle. I'm not very fond of what I did, because I think ther is too much black. But, as always, I put my first attempt here, so it is what it is.
What do you think of it (is you are totally honest)? I don't know why, but the scan is quite vague.

Spilling some juice

'Spill it!'
And that's what I did for Challenge 282.

Luckily on Sunday Kees made some juice, by putting blackberries, raspberries, a pear and a banana in a blender. So I used some of it to spill on a tile and there was this nice reddish stain:


When it was dry I had a real zen time tangling it. This time I made photo's and the color is much more 'real' then by scanning.
Thanks Laura, I liked this challenge a lot.

A Banking House being a tangle

After a lot of rain and chilly days it's finally warmer in the Netherlands. Well, from 18 on Sunday to over 30 today (34 expected on Friday) it will be quite hot for our country. So, I'll do my shopping early this morning and only sit outside in the evening. The quality of the air is not too good at the moment so my lungs (and not only my lungs to be honest) will like it better inside the house :-)

ING: in the Netherlands a banking House, but this week's tangle for the Challenge.
ING, also a tangle I love using, but not always think of. So, you see that coming ..... I love this week's challenge!

Almost 'of course' I took a tile I colored before (I have quite a stack now) and started with a big diagonal ING. Some aura's around it and then it was screaming for Paradox with Zinger.
Then there appeared some shapes that have now name and that is where I did the black lines that I had better not. Pokeroot made it a bit better, but still, the black lines are too much.

Still, I like most of the tile, so I'm OK with it.


For Square one I created this tile with Viaduct:

Rio 2016

Challenge 280 and (idea came from Margareth Bremner) The Olympic Games have to be our inspiration.

Not very easy for me, because I hardly watch sport at all. But I wanted to join this challenge, so here I go.

I took a yellow tile because of the sun in Rio and tangles three medals on it. The centers are gold, silver and bronze (hard to see in this scan, but believe me, they are).
Then some Queen's Crown for winning, Golven for water games and Printemps for wheels.
I'm not really happy with it, but .... this has to do.
