DIVA Challenge #348 - Moebius Syndrome Awareness Day

This is the third time for me to take part to DIVAs Challenge at the Moebius Syndrome Awareness Day, which is dated January, 24th.

Of course I would not miss this chance to contribute to this challenge and to support Laura with it a little bit.
Here are the links to my posts in 2017 and 2016

This year I drew directly in my Tangle Calendar, at January, 24th:

This is the next completed T*A*D calendar page:
26th and 27th I used for a challenge in a German ZIA facebook group , which is called "Tanglespielerei". The challenge was to create a mixture between Knightsbridge and another grid based tangle. I choose Cubine.

Zentangle weekend in Berlin and DIVA Challenge #347 (News from the T*A*D calendar)

My Zentangle Weekend in Berlin

Last weekend I  spent in Berlin, together with my CZT  friends Sabrina and Anya.
Sabrina invited us to her New Year`s Zentangle Event at friday evening.
Look at Sabrinas post what a cool 3Z Mosaic the18Ladies created and how much fun we had!
This 3Z mosaic we three completed the next day:

We had a lot of quality time together with tangling, walking, eating, joking... It was such a relaxing weekend - thnk you, Ladies!

I asked Anya and Sabrina to draw something in my T*A*D calendar and this is the 3CZT-page- how lovely is that! Anya showed me the beauty of "IBEX" - a official tangle which I have not noticed before.

At the next page I practiced three tangles by Tomas Padros - what a creative Spanish Zentangle-Man!!
When I started to draw his "Chorus" I was a bit distracted and did many mistakes... NO-NO-NO mistakes! Variations!

DIVA Challenge #347

I admit, that I rarely use strings for my Zentangle tiles. Mostly I start drawing and then the tile develops in any unintended direction.
So this week the DIVA Challenge was a real string challenge for me...and a very welcome exercise.
The Diva proposed to use some random objects as stencils for a string.
I decided to draw this challenge into my T*A*D- calendar and to create a whole page of three days.
What a great exercise- I had three days of fun!

the string things!

DIVA Challenge #346 and time for a new tangle calendar

Hello again to all my blog readers!

My best wishes for the New Year to you all!
My special greetings and my results of the amazing 12days of Zentangle project I have published in my last post .

So... let´s start with a new tangling year - I am looking forward to all the creative adventures with you all, during the challenges, with our new calendars and with our CZT classes...

I have been looking forward to the first DIVA Challenge.
We start the year with a Duotangle with Phicops ans Huggins, both original Zentangle tangles.
I haven´t been a big friend of Phicops yet - but I changed my opinion tonight ;-)

The "Tangle A Day" (T*A*D) calendar by Carol Ohl is VERY popular this year , and even though I have been stuck in July in 2017 I decided to give it a new try, and I can proudly say today, at the 9th of January " I am up to date" ;-))

Here are my first three pages:

During my holidays I drew some more tiles, in preparation of my next begginner classes where I tried some variations of the very first tile.

And last but not least a duotangle of the new tangle Toodles with "kissing Mookas"
I drew them with a glass dipping pen and black-blue ink.
