Again: Reticula and Fragments

As I said last week, I bought the book (in Dutch) and I have to say, I like it! 
When I looked at it at first, I thought that it was really only for beginners, but I was wrong. Even not being a beginner (my zentangle adventure started in 2011) it's is a great book to refresh and learn new things.

As expected, this week more Reticula and Fragments :-)

I took a beige tile and tangled with a black and a white pen and later I shaded with a white pencil.

Blessed Be!!!

Swab november, een duo-tangle

Een duo-tangle, gemaakt door twee personen; dat is de opdracht die Magda ons gaf voor november.

Ik kreeg mijn halve van Iris Drissen en liet deze even liggen, keek er af en toe naar en vond het best lastig. Maar toen ik gister eenmaal begon, ging het leuk.


Dank je wel Iris, ik hoop dat je leuk vindt wat ik er verder van maakte. Helaas heb ik geen foto van voor ik verder ging.


Warme groet,

Some frustration

The new challenge was quite frustrating for me at first. My English is not too bad I think, but I didn't really understand what we had to do.
I had some contact with a friend here in the Netherlands, asked my husband (who lived in UK for more then 20 years) for help, but it was not enough to know what to do.

Then there was Ria Matteussen that helped me out, by telling that the book is in Dutch too and I ordered it right away (of course). I looked at some entries (something I normally don't) and the one of Diana Scheur, with her explanation in Dutch, helped me a lot. Thanks Ria and Diana!!!!

So I started my tile last night and OMG, I like this!!!!
Today my new book will arrive and I look forward to it.

Having a good time

I was sooooo pleased to see what Laura has planned for us this week after the, for me, impossible tangle of last week.
Keeko is a tangle I use from time to time and one that hardly takes any concentration, just counting one, two, three, four, one, two, and so on. Do you count all the time too?

During the day I had been thinking about a string that I should use and I decided to do something rectangular. I took a pre colored tile from my stock ans started with Keeko on two sides. The rest just followed.

I enjoyed making this one, thanks Laura!!!



This is what I made for Square One last week using Rainking:

Impossible

After an intense and tiresome day last Monday (a training, very worth while, about values and norms as subject), I came home and was really looking forward to do the challenge. I looked at it and liked the new tangle Eaxy. Liked it a lot.
So I started and .... I just couldn't do it. Tried several times, got irritated and started my tile. I just couldn't do it!!!
I may try again, but not soon.

I decided to skip this week's challenge, but today decided different. Not being childish, just show you what I did in my frustration. The result speaks for itself!

Happy Halloween

Halloween, not very much about that in the Netherlands, but a bit more every year I think.
Just some stuff in the shops, but not children going from house to house to ask for candy.

I liked the idea of using a black zendala tile, like Laura did and remembered that I had some that I won some time ago by giving a comment on Rick and Maria's blog.
It has been a long time ago that I tangled on black and I liked doing that ... a lot.

A new friend?

Quite a while ago, making a duo-tangle and that's what Laura brings us in Challenge 290 this week.
NZeppel vs Flux it is!

Nzeppel has never been a friend of mine, but at least I can draw it now without to many mistakes (OK, I hear what you say about mistakes in Zentangle).
I think my Nzeppel is a bit too small as background for Flux and makes the tile too full, but it is what it is. Not too bad I think :-)


Last week I did a tile for a challenge of Arja de Lange, a Dutch CZT. This is the result:
