Diva Challenge #142 – Danger Zone

So managed to do a Diva Challenge two weeks in a row. That’s a first for awhile.  I had a bit of extra time doodling this week because I got to take a day out while minding a good friend’s munchkins while she labored with another.  The resulting munchkin is a beautiful girl who I am really looking forward to seeing growing. 

This week’s Diva Challenge is to move outside your comfort zone into dangerous areas.  I decided to meet the challenge head on by trying to do some Mooka.  Not really happy with how wobbly my lines go on this particular tangle.  I just can’t seem to hold I nice steady hand.  Or perhaps its just I’m trying too hard.  Anyway – I had a nice practice and moved on.

In my new mini-moleskine I decided to pick tangles I had never drawn before. This is the result.  I was pretty happy with it.   I didn’t use a single one of my comfort tangles. But I did use Chaining which is one of those tangles I just can’t do.  (Still can’t – as you can see).   Think the “BB” was my favourite new tangle.

      Thanks Cecile. Actually this is a spread in a pocket-sized moleskine. The pages are about as wide as a tile though.

    I never tried Chaining again after trying a long time ago. You had the courage to try again, bravo.
    I like your tile with beautiful tangles.

  5. Thinking picking tangles that have not used before is a great way to address this challenge. A lot of folks will practice a tangle in a journal numerous times before they are comfortable using it on a tile. Sounds like maybe you found some that may become favorites.

  6. I also have difficulty with Chaining, so I feel your “pain”! Nice tile!
