K.I.S.S. – Diva Challenge #198

This week’s Diva Challenge was to Keep It Simple, Silly. For me, keeping simple has more to do with not over-thinking, than with the line work.



Hope Mac Dee – Diva Challenge #180 and String Thing #53

I was able to “Catch two birds with one stone” again this week, combining Diva’s challenge to use Mac Dee on the same tile for the String Thing challenge.

This is the first time I have been moved to use color. The Scottish blood in me just had to see a “wee bit-o-plaid”.


Diva Challenge #178 – By the Letter

This weeks challenge was a duotangle using patterns that start with your initials, in my case, K and Z.

I chose  Zuan Shi, and substituted half the diamonds in Zuan Shi with Knot Rickz

Technically it is a ZIA, as I used a straight edge. Using tools in a repetitive fashion like that still evokes the zen mindfulness for me.



Diva Challenge #169 – ZIA Flowers

I have been wanting to play with ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) flowers, and this week’s Diva challenge to use circle strings was just the chance.

Diva Challenge #164 – Earth Day



Diva Challenge #164 – Earth Day

This is a ZIA – Zentangle Inspired Art, as it is representational. True zentangles are not representative of anything. (Except, of course, a zentangle – so I guess zentangles are recursive.)
