challenges: the diva #142 and joey #60

Diva #142:  Dex and Bunzo (happy 35th diva!) with watercolour pencils

I have completed two challenges this week!
I've gone from 0 to 2 (and on the first day no less!) thanks to the cloudy weather.  Not that I want the clouds to stick around, but I do tend to be more productive when it's yucky out.

Diva without new Photobucket editing

I also discovered a new "frame" in Photobucket's editing software that is pretty cool.  I suppose I could achieve the same effect with a white gelly roll pen.

It's funny, I have always disliked Bunzo, but today it flowed easily and now I can't wait to use it again.  My Dex is wonky, I still don't like that one. ;o)

And here is my "Quandary" challenge #60:

I purposely kept this one simple after having to "think" about drawing Quandary.  I found it a bit difficult to keep the triangles . . . triangular but it eventually formed a roundish shape so I went with that. 

 I hope you are having a great week,
keep tangling!

    1. You are so kind Heidi Sue. Those colours seemed to call out to me today and it's fun to grab the watercolours when you want to muck around with colour.

    1. Thanks Diane,
      I'm often timid with new editing software but that one seemed to go.

  6. The colors are so Springlike and fresh - greeen grass and grapes on a vine. I prefer the one without the photobucket border, but then I'm old and computer challenged :-). Lovely tiles, all of them.

  8. I agree about yucky weather...much easier to get cozy with a cuppa and the art materials when it's cloudy. Making things bright with the art materials is much more satisfying than braving the elements. Your colored tile is smashing!

  10. I can't believe your dexterity getting all those cheese cloth lines in your quandary. Amazing.

    1. Oddly, cheesecloth really is calming and I enjoy that my lines don't have to be perfectly straight or spaced. I wouldn't attempt it without a 005 Micron though! ;o)

  11. Like the color in your Diva Challenge tile. It enhances your Bunzo Frame. Have a special fondness for Quandary. That was the tangle introduced at my CZT seminar.
