Diva Challenge #265: "Stripes"

This week's Diva Challenge is to draw stripes. I decided to do some wavy stripes.  My creation consists of (from the top down) Sunz, Andu, Modern Nipa, Riverstones, and Aim with Tipple scattered throughout the tile.  I used medium and fine point Sharpie black pens.

As always, comments and criticisms are welcome.

Diva Challenge #264 - "String Theory: String into Spring"

For my "String into Spring," I used a black tile with a white Gelly Roll 08 pen.  I drew Paradox, Cadent, Tipple, and a little bit of auras around the Tipple.

Comments and criticisms are always welcome.

The Diva Challenge #263: "Globular Grid"

The Diva announced the Weekly Challenge #263 as follows:

"This week's challenge a grid based challenge, with a bit of a twist.  
The challenge is create your grid on a circle and make it globular. Here's how to do it!

I drew a light string onto a blank renaissance zendala tile, then i made two parenthesis type lines ( ) down the centre of the tile. 

From there, i just added more parenthesis lines, meeting at the tops and bottoms.  

then i turned my tile 90 degrees and did the same.

Once your grid is complete, tangle away!!"

I used a round tile (actually a coaster) from some I had purchased a couple of months ago. The surface is not as smooth as I would like and they do suck up the ink like crazy, but otherwise, they work well.  Well, I got a little carried away with drawing the grid and made the squares too small, so it took forever to fill them in with the pattern.  I decided to use Hypnotic which, because I had to use it so many times, and in so small of spaces, was rough on my eyes.  By the time I was finished, I felt as though I could hardly focus them.  It was fun though and it did go rather quickly.

Here is the final result:

That is it for now.
