Striping and a busy weekend

Last week I did not comment much because we went away for a long weekend. I'll try to do better this week :-)

We went to Leiden, a town in the west of The Netherlands. There was a small event trying to make people with and without physical disabilities meet and talk about what they have in common and not what the difference between them is.
There was also a possibility to walk with a black pair of spectacles and a cane, experiencing what is is to be blind or riding in a wheelchair a.s.o.

We stayed there in a nice hotel and also visited some musea. On Sunday, before we went home, we went to the shore and, after a lot of rain on Saturday, it was lovely, warm, sunny weather! We even had a cup of coffee on a terrace! 

In the hotel I tangled this (on my lap) on 'stijfselmarmer' paper: also ordered a few weeks ago. This beautiful paper is a bit thin for tangling, but very doable.

And now what you came here for: the Diva challenge.
Laura told us on her blog that the first snow has fallen there, so that's a sign winter is really coming. I hope it will stay away for a long time here.

The challenge this week is creating a monotangle with Striping. A tangle that is not used by many tanglers and I'm one of them. I did enjoy doing this though. I tangled on 'elefanthout' paper again.

Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you leave me a comment; I do appreciate that a lot. Work created by fellow tanglers can be seen at 'I am the diva'.

Blessed be!

  1. Prachtig effect het wit op dat blauwe papier. (Ik geloof dat ik daar ook nog ergens wat van moet hebben)
    De grijze monotangle is mooi gevonden met de cirkels.
    Misschien nog wat witte highlights en potlood schaduw maakt hem nog ronder. (ik hoop dat je dit als tip ziet en niet als kritiek) Het papier is geweldig om op te werken hé!

  2. Your tiles are very beautiful. I especially like the interpretation of Striping.

  3. Sounds like an interesting event. I like the blue tangle even better, but the challenge one is good, too. :)

  4. You are allowed to take a break from commenting when you are out having a life, especially when you are learning valuable information. ;-)

    I really like the "stijfselmarmer' paper and the composition you did on it. (Yes, I copied and pasted "stijfselmarmer'. You made your Striping tile visually interesting even though we had to do a monotangle.

  5. Thank you so much for sharing your experience;-) Your artwork is lovely as usual and I'm especially impressed and inspired by the Striping composition;-)

  6. Beautiful tiles! Terrific Striping!💜

  7. The blue tile you tangled in the hotel is soooo beautiful - I like it very much!
    Your striping balls are a good idea :-)

  8. Dank je wel Annemarie voor deze mooie informatieve blogpost met 2 originele tiles!

  9. What an interesting weekend - thank you for sharing. I love your blue 'stijfselmarmer' paper - I googled it: paste paper. Very nice. Your striping is wonderful - so creative.

  10. I love all your circles, Annemarie - you've got some fascinating effects from them.

  11. Mooi, beide tiles, de blauwe had ik al op FB gezien de andere niet. Altijd mooi met de high lights!

  12. The blue and white piece is stunning. I think Striping is used more as a filler, so interesting to use it in a monotangle. Think how it is shaded makes a big difference in how it looks.

  13. Nice striping tile . . . lots to see!
