Diva’s Challenge #113 (and 16-25)

Well this weeks challenge was lots of fun. Maybe I should not have done it while half blinded with pain and heavily drugged, but it still turned out well. The only problem I see is some lines are not straight but that’s fine.

Here is Challenge #113
Tangles: Cubine, Rick's Paradox
Below here are some of the catch-up challenges I have been doing, specifically #16-25. Most were done on my binder cover, which is done. The last image will be the cover.

Challenge #16 "Mooka" (April 4, 2011): I am becoming more and more a fan of Mooka.
Tangles: Mooks, Cubine, FooLites
Challenge #17 "15 Minutes of Fame" (April 11, 2011): This was more difficult than I thought it would be, I blame the ‘Nzepple.
Tangles: Hollibaugh, 'Nzepple, Crescent moon, and Static

Challenge #18 "EGGZZZZellent" (April 18, 2011): I had lots of fun with this, and how strange that I made it a monotangles.

Tangle: Moving Day (Tangleation)

Challenge #19 "More Morris" (April 25, 2011): This was fun, I need t do more work on black tiles.

Tangles: Static, 'Nzepple, Rick's paradox, Foolites, and Cubine

Challenge #20 "Royal Wedding" (May 2, 2011): I choose the cake and for some reason the song  McArthur Park was running through my head while making this, and as a result the cake is in the rain.

Challenge #21 "Oof" (May 9, 2011): This one was lots of fun, I kind of wish I had done it a whole tile.

Tangles: Oof, IX, Bales, Verve

Challenge #22 "A Little Help From My Friends" (May 16, 2011): I had a co-worker, who has taken Zentangle® classes with and from me, do the string for me. She thought it would be cute to do just 2 areas, and it was fun. I also played with schway.

Tangles: schway & W2

Challenge #23 "String Theory" (May 23, 2011): This was a really fun string!

Challenge #24 "String Theory V.II - Stripes" (May 30, 2011): This was fun, as I used very dark tangles, I decided to avoid shading.

Challenge #25 "Zendala Magic: Guest blogger Genevieve Crabe" (June 6, 2011): Let me just say YAY! Zendalas.

And here is the final Binder cover!
