Thanks for comments last week. I do see the value of challenges and I do enjoy the connection with Tanglers around the world. Yet sometimes the desire just isn't there. This week's Diva, however, was a timely reminder of why I Tangles and what I like most about it.
Diva #308 - MacNCheese
This week's challenge was all about those go-to Tangles we use without having to think. The Tangles that appear on the tile even when we are focusing on other Tangles. I realised that most of my go-to Tangles are Offical ones. My work wouldn't feel like mine if there wasn't some Flux, Printemps, Mooka, Shattuck, Tripoli or Bunzo, somewhere. Rixty, Hollibaugh, Fengle, Purk, Squill, Florz.
Today's tiles are both variations of the same string. One was a false start which I went back to and continued after nearly tossing in the bin.

This week the letter was L and the feature Tangle was Lee Lee. I added Land Girlz, Lollywimple variation, and Lenche. I've been doing this challenge in a journal which is made with hand made paper. Boy am I getting sick of this paper. It tears, doesn't blend, needs a very light touch, bleeds even with Micron pens and gets wet too quickly when I add colour. I will persist. It would drive me crazy to change now and leave the series in the book incomplete.
I'm continuing to experiment with coloured shapes and a background of detailed Tangles. Tangles used were Tropicana, Shattuck, Odee, Bunzo and Pixioze. These ZIAs take me hours to complete over about a week. It's all about the process, the Zen of getting lost in each line.
Thanks for dropping by.
