Zentangle Diva’s Challenge #208 – Bon Voyage Edition

by Suzanne Fluhr on March 9, 2015 · 18 comments

Zentangle Diva's Weekly Challenge ##208

(Start here if you don’t have a clue what Zentangle is.)

Snowmageddon, Boston winter snow piles

The street where our dog will be living. If this is the remnants of the Boston area Snowmageddon, I can’t imagine what life was like before there was some melting.

In two days we leave for our 3 week trip to Turkey and Israel. I hope I’m actually closer to being ready to leave than I feel. I spent the weekend delivering our dog, Dino, to my sisters-in-law in Cambridge, Massachusetts (part of the Boston metro area). They have graciously agreed to keep him again until mid-June because this is the first of four trips that will have me away from hearth and home. (Actually, we live in a rental apartment with no hearth, but you get the idea). I’m actually glad I had the opportunity to see the remnants of the infamous Snowmaggedon that buried the Boston area this winter. It was pretty impressive.

I told myself I wasn’t going to look at the Zentangle Diva’s challenge for this week, because I don’t really have time to work on it. But then I saw that Laura’s challenge was to use two of my favorite tangles (Pokeberry and Cubine) in a Duotangle and my best intentions evaporated. So, I may forget to suspend our newspaper delivery, but here’s my duotangle. (It is done on a Zentangle 3.5 inche by 3.5 inch tile, but because of the color, it would properly be considered a ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art):

Zentangle Diva’s Challenge # 208 – Duotangle using Pokeberry and Cubine

If, as it is for me, travel is one of your other passions, you may want to check out my blog post about our recent Caribbean cruise. It contains a bonus for tanglers.

Do you even find yourself working on a Zentangle when you should be doing something else?

The use of colour really makes this stand out, Suzanne, I do like it. And ave you noticed, those jobs do always get done, even if it’s by the skin of your teeth! Have a good trip and tell us all about it when you get back.

The three-dimensional colored squares are cool but I like the inverted “bulbs” (?) the best! You sure have gotten good at this, Suzanne! 🙂

Love your tile with the inclusion of the color and the way it draws your eye up. I also like the two different treatments of Pokeroot. The mannequin in your other blog post was also great. The first picture also looks like it might have an interesting tangle deconstruction in there.

I like your colorful tile a lot. Have a great trip, Suzanne and … take care!


Ilse March 10, 2015 at 9:08 am

I like that you added some happy colours. Gives it a different ‘look and feel’ straight away!


Suzanne Durville March 10, 2015 at 9:34 am

I really like your use of color in this one, it gives it such a happy feeling. Enjoy your trip!


Lily March 10, 2015 at 11:08 am

Very nice tile 🙂


Jean Chaney March 10, 2015 at 11:13 am

Sometimes you just have to stop with the craziness and do a little tangling. It sure puts things into perspective and is refreshing. I love the colors you added to this festive piece. Enjoy your trip!


Emily March 10, 2015 at 8:07 pm

Tangle when I should be doing something else??? Surely, you jest!!! (#guiltyascharged!) It’s such a lovely happy tile.


Beewatch March 11, 2015 at 12:03 pm

The colors in your tile are stunning. I wish you a good trip (I feel only a little bit jealous)


Lynell March 11, 2015 at 2:54 pm

Oh…wow…four weeks? You have some serious travel blogging to do! Looking forward to reading all about it. LOVE your creation…sometimes hard to resist the color, ( i am the same way). I think cubine is very effective in tangleations and love how yours undulates. Travel safe!

Suzanne, love the color! Great job!
Safe travels; I suspect just negotiating Boston was a thrill-a-minute!
Have a brilliant day! c


HeidiSue March 11, 2015 at 4:20 pm

Love all the color! it’s eye popping, and then the contrast/negative effect you created with your two versions of pokeroot. Kewl!


ChristineC March 11, 2015 at 4:54 pm

The use of colors in Cubin is original. i like it


Susan March 12, 2015 at 7:05 am

Like the use of colour


Donald W March 12, 2015 at 10:05 pm

Is fun to throw in color every once in a while. It does add to this tile. Have fun on you travels and also have fun at your CZT seminar.


Holly {ha! designs} March 13, 2015 at 6:10 pm

Wow… You sure have some busy FUN times ahead of you! I’m glad you were able to squeak out a little time for the challenge! Your Poke Root and Cubine are so wonderfully drawn. I like your addition of color as well. It looks like spring!


LezliB March 15, 2015 at 5:21 pm

I love the color in your tile…it makes it pop! Sometimes you just need a bit of color in it and this definitely wanted it. Great work on this one. Have a wonderful safe time on your travels. Look forward to reading about your adventures. Stay safe!
