This week's DIVA challenge is to use reticula and fragments on your tile. If you are not familiar with reticula and fragments, I would suggest reading the challenge on Laura's blog (click on the link) because she has a great explanation and links to fully understand this method that was introduced by Rick and Maria (co-founders of the Zentangle art method).
If you have the Zentangle Primer Vol 1 book you can look up the reticula (grid) I used R-B1 on page 123 and the fragment was X7 on page 115. I rotated the fragment every other way in each column of the reticula. So much fun!
I hope you all had a peaceful and blessed Thanksgiving day!

The DIVA has us doing a UMT (use my tangle) challenge this week. The tangle is Eaxy by CZT, Nadine Roller from Germany. This is a tangle made with X's and Nadine said it was easy so she named it Eaxy. Her example tiles are beautiful! I had a bit of a learning curve with this one, and I practiced over and over until I got it. It was very hard for me to keep my X's consistent and to figure out where I was when I turned my tile. So, because of that, I decided to confine it to a small space and use some comfort tangles with it. I did give it my best try!

This week the DIVA challenge is to create a Halloween themed tile. I made kind of a crazy Arukas spider in a Fracus web and then added a border. I did this on a tan tile with black and brown pens and a white charcoal pencil. I used a gray marker for the shading.
Halloween was extra special this year because my granddaughter is 20 months and I got to go with her and her parents to trick or treat. Their family has a Bassett hound named Nate (my 1st grand dog), and my daughter being clever had Bailey dress up as a Fox so they could go as Fox and Hound.
