A Change of Direction.

I can't believe that I've been writing this blog, on and off, since January of 2009! When I first began, I was mostly concentrating on my fiber work, and then added some of my glass work. Eventually, I also returned to metalwork after years of not doing any. But as I added more forms of Art and/or Craft, I had less and less time to work on the blog. Now that I've added Zentangles to the mix, I find that I have even less time. 

But I hope to change that. There is a weekly Zentangle challenge, posted by CZT (Certified Zentangle Teacher) Laura Harms. I have been doing tiles and ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) in answer to the challenge for a while now, but have not posted them on the challenge site. Or anywhere else for that matter. But that is going to change. Even if I have nothing else to write about, each week I will post my attempts at the challenge here on my blog. And when I think my challenge pieces are worthwhile, I'll post them on the challenge site: iamthediva

Even when I don't post my work at the challenge site, please go there and see the fabulous art being created by all the talented Tanglers who do meet the challenge weekly.

This was my first  attempt at this week's challenge, which is a Duo Tangle; 
using 2 tangles: Cirquital and Opus

 My next try was a little more elaborate
 Where it lists the filler tangles, on the right, the first one should read Onamato.

Here's the next one 

and one last one, very simple

I have to work on my photography, which is usually OK. For some reason, this time the photos all came out sort of yellowish, and I can't seem to whiten them up no matter what I try.

But this is just a preview. I intend to show my challenge responses each week. I hope you'll be back to see them, and please comment on them, as well. 

In between, I'll still post a bit about glass, fiber, and metalwork. 
Till next week.....................


  1. Nice to 'meet' you here Audri!
    Your tiles are very well done, I like them.
    And, post whatever you like, every one will be worthwhile!

  2. Welcome here! I like your tiles! The second is my favorite because it has so very nice variations of "Cirquital". Nicely done!

    1. Thank you so much. Glad you like my tiles.


Thanks for visiting; please leave a comment, favorable or not. I'd love to hear your thoughts. That's how we learn and grow; and how we know someone out there is paying attention.

Have a wonderful day; see you all next time.
