A new medium


'A happy new medium' is the subject of Challenge 381.
To be honest, I have quite some pens I have not (or hardly) used yet so a great opportunity to do so.
I took fine Sharpies and nice, but hard to draw on even with a Sakura pen, paper and started. Right from the start I knew this was not the best decision ever, but as always I go on what I started.
The good thing is, that I tried and know now that I better use these pens for something else.

The result is below, nothing much, but I did meet the challenge :-)

2019: a lot of .........


2019 and Laura's 'Diva challenge' blog is there for 8 years now! Congratulations, Laura!

2019 a new year with new opportunities. For some of us this will become a great year, for others not so great, we don't know what the future brings. What we do know, is that we're all tanglers and always try to be there for each other if needed. I'm still proud to be part of this community and thankful to Laura for starting it!!!

2019 did not start very well for Kees and me. I became ill with the flu on December 30th, did feel horrible but stayed up al night for Kees. Don't know if that was really nice for him, because most of the evening I was sleeping in my chair.
Next morning Kees was ill too, so we were just hanging in bed or in our chairs for days. Sleeping a lot.
Last Friday I went to the doctor and he found out I had (light) pneumonia, not a real good thing with my COPD. After the weekend I did not feel much better and went to the doctor again. There was a need for antibiotics and that's what I'm taking now for seven days.
Still ill, but feeling a bit better since yesterday evening.

Also 2019 being a new year with Diva Challenges and this week the first one: circles as your string. As I don't have a paint spinner, I just traced some glasses and tangled in the circles. Loved doing this, especially because it is my first tangling after becoming ill.
To be honest, I do like the result.

Better late ....


The last challenge of this year, because (as always) Laura will take a few weeks off. Well deserved is you ask me :-)

Create a Holiday tile, is what she asks us to do. It took me quite some days to find out what I would do with this challenge, but this afternoon I knew. OK, a bit late, but better late then never isn't it!?

I took a black zendala tile and first traced a star in the centre. Then tangled around it with Sakura Metallic Gelly Roll pens and after that I decided to put some little star stickers on it. As well as the 'Prettige Kerstdagen' in the middle of the star.


'Prettige Kerstdagen' is Dutch for 'Happy Christmas Days.
And, that is what I wish for all of you, maybe with family or friends, maybe alone, whatever you do, have a good time!
And for 2019 I wish you all love, warmth, light and good health.

A bit of blue


A new month, so the challenge is an UMT as always. 123 O'Leary by Antonine it is.

I never saw this tangle before (I think), so time to try.
It is quite easy to draw and after two lines filled with it I thought Ixorus would be nice in between; some Diva Dance for a finish.
I liked the tile then, wanted to give it some color and ..... should not have done that :-(

A duotangle


A duotangle with Pokeroot and Fengle is what we have to do for challenge 377.

Like a lot of other tanglers I'm not a Fengle fan, but Pokeroot is a different story. However I use Pokeleaf much more often.

Last night I started this challenge on a tile had I colored with a Gelli Plate and used a black pen. But first I started drawing Fengle a few times on a piece of paper to get the hang of it.
I loved doing this tile, had a real relaxing time.

Then, this morning, my scanner didn't work, so I made a photo of my tile:

Only one String Theory


After a week without the 'Linky machine', in Challenge 376 it's there again. What I really like was the creativity last week, most of us did put the link to our tile in Laura's comments and so we still could see what other tanglers did.

This week is a 'string theory' one and while we only have to make one tile, we could also make four and have a mosaic. I would have liked to make four, but I just don't have the time in the coming days, so only one tile from me.

I took a grey tile and loved working on it. This paper is so very smooth and soft for the pens. I also liked the string to tangle in. The end result is quite pretty, at least that's how I feel: I like it! Hope you do too :-)

To Linky or not to Linky :-)


Already Thursday and we do have this challenge, but yet no Linky Machine to put our work in. So, for now I'll just put a link to my blog in the comments on The Diva's blog.

To be honest, I did not really like this tangle, but after drawing it twice, I went on and started liking my tile. At the end a big A appeared and since it's the first letter of my name, I think that's funny.

Hope Laura will still put the Linky Machine on, so everyone can use that ans show their work.
