DC #329, a new blog with a new challenge, Happy 4th. Birthday IAST

This weeks guestpost by Marguerite Samana on Diva's blog. Marguerite challengend us to use Fragment D1. I tried to draw in three different ways. On of them with Reticula R-L2 which consist of a circle into a rectangle. Thank you Marguerite for this beautiful and for me relaxing challenge. Please have also a look to the entries of the other artists.

Joey started after her Time-out:

- with a new blog, which have a new format, new name, but the most will be the same as madebyjoey. Congratulation Joey, I like the new format.

- and a beautiful new and interesting challenge over the next 9 weeks. We need 9 tiles (circles, draw in a sketchbook, any size ... all is possible), lay 3 tiles across by 3 down, draw  first a border around the entire square of tiles and then create a large string inside the border crossing every tile. Every week Joey will be choose a tangle, which must be incorporated in the weekly tile.

More details, the new blog and the entries of the other artist you can find here.

I prepared the tiles and began to draw with the first, incorporated African Artist.
While drawing I noticed that I didn't took a picture of the prepared tiles, but it wasn't to late :)) - and here is it.

....and here comes the finished first tile...

Very Happy 4th. Birthday IAST (It's a string Thing). Thank you so much Adele for making a every week great and interesting challenges.

Adele challenged us to celebrate this  with a string of 4 candles and the tangles Knightsbridge, Trella, Copada and Wud.
This week I saw a new Zentangle technic called TransZending - that means, with my words, to draw and shadow your tile as normally. And now drawing with the micron on a part of the tile for example another tangle or a field. Shadow the outside with graphit and inside with white pastell pencil or Zenstone.
I thought this is wonderful and I'll give it a try - especially for this Birthday-Challenge.

Guest posts and a Wedding Theme

Ein weiterer Gastpost von Jessica Davies für die Diva challenge.  Erst dachte ich, ohhhh neeein, Pea-Nuckle! Wie man es zeichnet, habe ich schon gesehen, es gefällt mir auch sehr gut, aber noch nie ausprobiert, weil ich dachte, ist viel zu kompliziert. Einen Tag später sagte ich mir, o.k. ich probiere es und war erstaunt, dass dieses Muster mir keine Schwierigkeiten machte. Vielen Dank, liebe Jessica.

Another guestpost by Jessica Davies for the Diva challenge. First I thought, ohhh nooo, Pea-Nuckle! I often see how to draw it and find it beautiful, but never have drawn, because I thought it's too much complicated. One day later I said to me, o.k. I try it and amazingly I had no trouble with it. Thank you so much, dear Jessica. 

DC #325 - Pea-Nuckle

Die nächste Herausforderung für mich war die Challenge auf Joeys Blog mit Susie als Gastbloggerin, obwohl ich erst dachte, dass es nicht so schwer sein wird. Vielen, vielen Dank, Susie, du hast mich aus meiner Komfortzone gebracht:)))

Susie is the guest blogger this week at Joey's blog. To combine  Asian Fans with the string was a greater challenge for me, as I thought first. Thank you so much, Susie, you take me out of my comfortzone :)))

Joey's #174

Adele hat für IAST  #203 und 204 das Thema "Hochzeit" ausgewählt.  Nach altem Brauch für die Braut, sollte sie etwas Neues, etwas Altes, etwas Geborgtes und etwas Blaues am Hochzeitstag haben. Ich musste an unsere Hochzeit denken und fragte mich, wo die 30 Jahre geblieben sind. Vielen Dank, Adele, für diese schöne Challenge.

For IAST #203 und 204 Adele has chosen the theme "Wedding". According to custom for the bride to have something new, something old, something borrowed and something blue on her wedding day. I thought at our wedding day and asked me, where the 30 years are gone. Thank you so much, Adele, for this beautiful challenge.
