The zentangle challenge at I am the diva for this week was the new tangle Ixorus. I already saw it in the zentangle newsletter, but had no time to give it a try. First I tried it a few times in my sketchbook and then it was time to jump in. The tangle reminded me of a hexagon, so I drew Ixorus inside a hexagon. The border just happened and I like it. For the background I used molecule, which I found in Totally Tangled. A few days ago I already wrote about the zentangle I made to catch up on the challenge for week 2. Now I also made the zentangle for week 1, simplicity. To simplify my zentangle I divide it in two parts with a twisted line. I wanted to use 2 patterns with the same start. At one side I used cadent and at the other side W2, I only shaded W2. My husband told me it reminded him of Escher's birds.
Last week I had no time to visit other blogs and leave comments, but I watched the slide show and I liked it.
