this week I took up the Diva’s Challenge once more. The challenge was to do a duotangle with cubine and Pokeroot. Cubine is a great 3-D pattern that I’ve used quite a lot – but always in the same way. Luckily, Laura Harms also gave us the link to a fabulous Cubine tutorial by one of my favorite tanglers, Margaret Bremner. So this time, I’ve tried some of her ideas and I really love them! Thank you, Margaret, for the great tutorial and Laura for the challenge!!!
I’ve been sick all week. Not so nice. But then again, being in bed finally gave me the time to tangle a bit – and to participate in the Weekly Diva Challenge – just in time before the new challenge comes out tomorrow! 😉
I’ve been wanting to try Arukas for weeks now, but since I’ve been working on the English translation of my book, I’ve been spending more time on the computer than tangling.
Arukas is the latest “officilal” Zentangle pattern and it’s wonderfully versatile. Guaranteed hours of playing! 😀 Here’s how to draw it.
Well, fall is finally here! 😉 The kids and I have been collecting beautiful red autumn leaves for the last 2 weeks -they’re all over our house!
