Diva's Weekly Challenge

This morning while exploring the world of tangles I ran into I Am the Diva blog and it's Weekly Challenge. The idea behind the challenge is to create something using a given tangle. This was perfect for me as I've been doing exactly what the challenge is made for - exploring and learning to draw various tangles.

The inspiration tangle this time is golven. I incorporated it into a postcard sized abstract. There is no special theme to it. The whole point was for me to try out different patterns and learn. Here it is:

See where it is? Up, the first horizontal thread. I like golven. It's easy to do and relaxing. I'll definitely use it again.

Overall I am happy with this card. I messed up some of the patterns, but managed to transform most of the mistakes into different patterns. The Celtic knot went wrong towards the right side. I didn't find a way to fix it, but I don't mind, it's not that noticeable, and even if it is, meh, I wasn't going for perfect anyway.


  1. Exploring and learning, wel it was nice to read your staps, not going for perfection but joy!
    Well done!

  2. Very nice! I think it is neat that you are trying different patterns.

  3. Hey nice tangle, glad you are joining the blog world.

  4. The ribbons weaving in and out of your challenge piece are wonderful. It is fun to see so many patterns...and the golven works in perfectly!

  5. Beautiful job! You are on your way!

  6. Don't you just love it that one of the main points of Zentangles is that "there are no mistakes"? Of course it never stops me from obsessing over mine...but in a nice way! You're off to a great start.
    This is wonderful.

  7. Hi Bilja, thanks so much for your lovely comment on my blog. :) Your artwork does show talent just as your friend Danny told you! I love the pattern here, looks like a lot of fun creating the tangles, I think I might have a go. :)
