Diva Weekly Challenge #120 ~ Tangleation Nation ~ Bales

This week's challenge is to use the tangle, Bales.
Although it is considered to be one of the staples of Zentangle,
I find I hardly ever use it!

So thank you Laura for this week's challenge!
Definitely need to play with this.

 (Tangle used ~ bales)

I have eight Tiffany lamps ~ after I finished with this tile
I realized that it would have been great colored!
I plan on doing another one of these so I can
use my Koi Water Colors by Sakura.  FUN!!!

Just a note ~ I have been experiencing a "problem" with my
zentangle tiles and micron ink. The ink seems to be bleeding a bit and
the tiles seem to have more of a "rag" to them.
I have a light hand and it has been a bit more damp where I live.
Anyone have an idea?


  1. Thank you for liking my post. I like yours too. Simple yet catchy.

  3. I really like what you did with your tile. I would be nice to see it colored as you suggested.

    1. Thanks Kelly ~ I'm hoping to get the time to color one!

  4. What an outstanding effect you have achieved with your tangleations and depth in contrasts!

  5. Love the use of Bales shading behind the Bales - very clever :)

  6. Light, drama and cool effects.....great.

  7. Really like the contrast and the Bales behind the Bales. Would be interesting with color but think it is striking in black and white.

  8. This was difficalt to draw!! Two different level, wow!
    Great and beautiful artwork :-)

  9. I'm sure color would be very nice, but it's quite striking this way too. Love the "bales behind bales" idea.

  10. I love the way you layed the tile really nice

  11. I was thinking the same as UUna; must have been quite difficult. It turned out lovely.
