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I looked back into my stash and came up with a bookmark (hence the hole in the upper left where I had a ribbon) I originally made on July 6, 2015.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.

  2. Nice 'new' tile, even without shading ;-)

  3. The remix makes it a very different proposition. For me, it actually raises the two main motifs by giving them a background. Very nice work.

  4. Very nice additions to your first tile. If you have a scanner, scan a finished tile that has no shading. Copy/paste it to a word document 6 times and print it. Then, you can play with shading 6 different ways before you do it on the actual tile. Work just a tiny bit first. It's always easy to add more and hard to remove. Have fun with it. Remember, like Zentangle, there is NO wrong way!

    1. I have actually done that on another tile when I could not get a part of it to work out correctly. It worked out well. I have to remind myself that all Zentangle is one line at a time!! Thank you for your comments. I appreciate them.

  7. Adding the background and the Tipple really showed off your original two focal points. Nice finish on this bookmark!

  8. I love the addition of the background on this piece. It really made the whole bookmark pop! The way you have finished this really calls for a bit of shading ... perhaps you could try with just a little around the central tangles and go from there. Just remember, it is meant to be relaxing and when it no longer is, then stop.
