DC#306 , a large ZIA and the latest calendar pages


The first DIVA Challenge of the month is called "UMT Challenge" - Use My Tangle-
Everybody  can post his tangles on DIVAS UMT-page and apply for this challenge.

This week the DIVA chose "Amphora" by ZenLilyMoon.
I have been following the work of Lily already for a long time and I adore their work.  
Amphora is new to me and I like it much. This is my interpretation of this beautiful tangle:



During the last few weeks I drew this picture below. Because of it's size I can not call it a tile anymore. It is a page of the same Fabriano paper like the original Zentangle tiles are. The size of the page is 28x38 cm. 
It was not my first large scale project but my most "intensive" one. I tried to connect the tangles and to blend them, if possible. So I realized that I needed some planning and some creative breakes sometimes. I had a lot of fun with it and collected some experiences, by the way.



And last but not least these are the latest two pages from my calendar.
I love all the tangles I used during these days, I could not say what my favourite is... love them all.

When I found PICO by Staubkorn I realized that many variations are possible, so I tried some of them. My favourite of them is the last one with Betweed inside.

  4. Your Amphora looks like a pair of exquisite dangle earrings! Your larger piece reminds me of some of the ones I have seen Maria Thomas do. Yours is so complex and beautifully done.

  11. Your work is quite stunning. On the Diva's challenge for the week, I like you very nicely done clean lines and simple drawing of Amphora. Then on the large project you did, I think this work is quite stunning. Yes, it looks complicated and I can see why it took several weeks to complete. You have inspired me to want to do something of the kind. Thank you for your artwork.

  12. Very nice, very beautiful, very symmetrical Amphora tile. I love your larger piece as well. It all works so well together with all the weaving of the tangles.

  13. Hallo Simone,
    Deine "Tiles" sind eines schöner als das andere - wie immer :-)
    Bis jetzt habe ich viel auf Bristol Board gezeichnet und wüßte gerne welchen Zeichenkarton von Fabriano Du genau für das wunderschöne große Bild genommen hast.
    Weiterhin frohes "Tangeln" wünscht Dir
    Gudrun S.

  15. All of your work is so gorgeous! I love the balance and composition of your Amphora, especially that highlight on the black S curve. Your ZIA is amazing! I'm especially inspired by the Mooka meandering through the border. I must try that;-) Your calendar continues on to be a masterpiece. I've been noodling around with Pico a lot lately. I love all of your variations. Thank you so much for being such a generous inspiration dear Simone.

  16. Beautiful Amphora tile. The large work is stunning! I haven't attempted even an Opus tile. The ones I purchased are still sitting in the envelope they came in, so I am impressed! Always fun to see what you are doing in your calendar!
