The Zentangle Diva’s Weekly Challenge #183— “UMT – X-Did” by Annette Carlo

by Suzanne Fluhr on September 2, 2014 · 10 comments

The Diva posted the weekly challenge on Tuesday this week because of the holiday (Labor Day) yesterday. I think  quite a few of the regulars might miss it. However, I kept looking to see if she posted something because the Diva’s Weekly Challenge is now a sub-addiction to my general Zentangle and Zentangle Inspired Art (ZIA) addiction.

Apparently, there’s a tradition that for the first week of the month, the Diva posts a challenge called “UMT”—Use My Tangle. So, other tanglers have submitted their tangles to her to consider. This week, she is using the “X-Did” by Zentangler, Annette Carlo.  I don’t think I did a great job with that particular tangle, but I was able to add it to a WIP (work in progress) and I kind of like the result (if I might be so bold given my relative newbieness to this form of expression).  So, without further ado…………..



If I manage next week’s challenge, it will be from Germany. We leave on Saturday. Mr. Excitement has a conference in Munich (the European Respiratory Society) and then we’re tacking on visits to Vienna and Budapest.

Tangle on!

I think your is very well done. No need for rulers here. I tried to add mine to a tile that was already in progress and did the half triangles upside down. So, I had to invent another new tangle 🙂

I keep looking at the tile, trying to see what it is about it that makes it work so well. I’ll keep looking because I haven’t got it yet but, whatever it is, I like it.

When you figure it out, let me know 😉

Wow. I love this Tile. It literally pops off the page. Beautiful use of black. Excellent shading, and plenty of negative space. Your design breathes with life. Love it.

Wonderful combination of tangles, love that they all play so well together. Great contrast and shading. Enjoy your trip!

Suzanne, I love the movement in your tile! And you did a wonderful job with ‘X-DID’! It is one of those tangles that is pretty forgiving! Thank you so much for giving it a try! :0) Annette Share humanity

Great tile with great shading.

Nice way to fit this one it. I like the boldness in most of your tangles. Your beads around the outside is a nice embellishment and way to separate the different sections.
