I only managed to complete 2 challenges this week; 
It's a String Thing #59, 
and Square One: Purely Zentangle; Betweed

For the latest  "It's a String Thing" 
Adele has designed a string inspired by
CZT Michelle Beauchamp's tangle, Oke
upon which we are to use that tangle: Oke, 
along with Meringue by CZT Kelley Kelly.

I've never cared much for Oke, but I love Meringue; it has a sort of Aquafleur feel to it. When I set Meringue on Adele's string, Oke fell right into place around it. Or would it be more correct to say behind it? At any rate, they were meant for each other.
I started to add some vein lines on Oke, 
but it just seemed like overkill; 
I like it just the way it is. I hope you do, too. 

Be sure to check out all the other entries @ Tickled to Tangle, on Monday, when Adele Bruno posts them. The vast differences that can be achieved using the same tangles on the same string are truly incredible. And, if you've a mind to try a String Thing yourself, check back on Tuesday, when she offers the new ones.

Betweed is the tangle of the week 
at Square One: Purely Zentangle. 

The premise at this site is to go back to the basics:  
Artwork created with nothing more than a 3.5" x 3.5" paper tile, pen and pencil...
no color, no eraser, no distraction. 
Betweed has always been, and remains, one of my favorite tangles. I have used it here with one of my favorite strings, #043, by Beth Snoderly

You can see all the other Square One entries, 
including previous tangles, here.


  1. I am just the reverse of you and really like Oke but don't care much for Meringue. I do agree that these two tangles seem to be made for each other. I like the way your tile came out. Your Betweed tile is lovely, I haven't tackled that one yet.

    1. I'm glad you like the way my Oke/Meringue tile came out. I'm pretty pleased with it myself. Get your Betweed tile going, if you haven't already. You'll find it will fit in anywhere you try it.


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.
