Paradox for Square One, It's a String Thing #120

Paradox is one of my all-time top favorite tangles. 
Last week it was the focus on Square One.
Here's my latest version. Somehow it never got posted: 
Check out the Square One/Purely Zentangle group on Facebook, and see all the other entries. 
Square One has you going back to the basics;
Try it, you may like it.

Over at Adele Bruno's site, Tickled to Tangle, 
this is the string for It's a String Thing #120 

Gourdeous by Maria Thomas, Zentangle® co-founder. 
and Lichen by Jennifer Hohensteiner 

Here's my tile for It's a String Thing #120:
Be sure to check out all the entries @ Tickled to Tangle, on Monday afternoon, 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 afternoon, when she offers the new ones.

Diva's Challenge #243; Just a Little Taste

The challenge this week is to intentionally 
leave the majority of your tile empty;
giving the tile just a tiny taste of tangle.

So this is a tiny taste of the tangle Biscus: 
 Perhaps it's not quite tiny
but it does leave more white space than usual.

Be sure to visit the Diva's site to see the other 
wonderful entries. It's amazing how different 
all the responses are. Maybe you'll be inspired 
to try out one of the Challenges yourself.

Joey's Weekly Challenge #85, Diva's Challenge #242

Joey's challenge at this week is to do a Verdigogh monotangle. 
I've always liked Verdigogh; but somehow this challenge proved a bit challenging, shall we say. Using it as a monotangle was what threw me off. I kept wanting to use color, but it just never seemed quite right. I tried white on black, but even that didn't do it. So I finally settled on the traditional black on white. Then it seemed unfinished somehow. I knew it needed shading; but I wasn't sure how. This is my best effort. 
At least it doesn't seem so flat.
  Take a look at Joey’s site to see the other entries, and maybe try one yourself.
The Diva's Challenge is to use the new 
Official Tangle, Gourdgeous. I still haven't mastered it 
to my liking; but here is what I came up with:
I'm not completely happy with it; but I really wanted to submit something for this challenge. Especially since I've been a little behind posting my work. So, it is what it is.
