This week’s I am the Diva CZT’s challenge #179 is to use the official small tile size “Bijou”.  Bijou, the snail mascot for the 2″x2″ tiles, is just the most darling thing!  I don’t even like snails (aka slugs with armour).  This li’l guy is very cute.  You can watch the Zentangle video here.  I created four 2″x2″ pieces.  I’m quite familiar with this size.  The dimensions are close to the squares I draw in my tangle patterns reference sketchbook.  I call this group of tiles “Les études de bijou”.  I decided to only use official Zentangle patterns and stick to the basics.  These didn’t take me long at all.  Enjoy!

This week’s I am the Diva CZT challenge #175 is to use the tangle “Crux” by Henrike Bratz.  This was the first time for me to use this tangle.  I like it.  I shall definitely use this tangle pattern again.  My piece for this week is entitled “Ceramics” because it reminds me of floor tiles.  It’s hot, sunny and humid in Vancouver these days so I am very grateful that we have cool to the touch floor tiles in our condo.  I started with the TanglePattern String 099.  The tangles used are:  Crux, Onomato, Hibred, and Florz. Enjoy!
