“Ghosts of Tangles Past”…

This week’s Diva challenge is to take a tile that was done awhile ago and create a newer version of that tile using the same tangles.

The Diva, Laura Harms, explained that her tile was created before she was the Zentangle Diva and before she became a CZT.  Like Laura, this tile was created when I was relatively new to Zentangle and definitely before I became a CZT.  I see that I fell into the same trap as many beginning tanglers, which is that I worked very small.  Now I strive to work bigger.

My original tile was created about four years ago (I learned my lesson and now I date my tiles. 🙂 :

Original tile for Challenge

Tangles used: Antidot, Quipple, Pillows, Tripoli and Zewm

 

My “new” tile looks like this:

Years ago I took a class on writing children’s books. One of the exercises that we did was to think about a young relative – I chose my niece who was 7 at the time – and write about what your life was like when you were the child’s age.  Talk about a trip down memory lane and raising one’s awareness to the changes in our lives.  It was great a great trip through the past – you may want to try it!  It was amazing to realize how much had changed that I just took for granted.

Now that my blog has been posted I am going to see what others created in response to the challenge.  I hope you will take time to view the tiles at the Diva Challenge blog and that you find these tiles as inspiring and educational as I do.

There are times when I would like to leave a comment about someone’s tile but find that I am not able to do so because the only option that I am able use is the name/URL option.  I do not fit into the other categories.  Sorry!  I hope you know that I appreciate your tiles too!

As always, I am so grateful to all who leave me comments, which are a great source of encouragement and support.  To those who left comments last time, a huge THANK YOU!

Until next time,
Sending smiles,
Maureen
