Diva Challenge #273 - "Tangle Remix"

The Diva's Challenge this week is "to go back into your stash and find a tile that you could spruce up or remix and give it a shiny fresh coat of Pigma Micron!"

I looked back into my stash and came up with a bookmark (hence the hole in the upper left where I had a ribbon) I originally made on July 6, 2015.  I used a fine point Sharpie to draw Tipple in the four corners and Tizzy in the middle.    Here is what it looked like:

After I added some larger Tipple and enhanced the Tizzy with a medium point Sharpie, I added Florz with a fine point Sharpie and a Micron 01 to the background. Here is the final product:

No shading involved.  I really must start doing that -- no excuse, except I am chicken!!

As always, comments and criticisms are welcome.

Diva's Challenge - #272 - "What's Black and White and Read All Over?"

This week's challenge was to create a Zentangle tile with the standard black and white and add some red to it.

This past week I ran across a favorite quote (also known as "Indra's Net").  It reads as follows:

"There is an endless net of threads throughout the universe. The horizontal threads are in space. The vertical threads are in time. At every crossing of the threads, there is an individual, and every individual is a crystal bead. And every crystal bead reflects not only the light from every other crystal in the net, but also every other reflection throughout the entire universe."

                                              --Rig Veda

Throughout the week, this quote has been on my mind - how the actions of each person affects the other and how what one person sets in motion affects everything.  I decided to create a Zentangle tile version of it using Florz.  Here is what it looks like:

As always, comments and criticisms are much appreciated.  Hope you have had a happy week.

Send some goodness out in the universe this coming week!!
