Diva Challenge #262: UMT: Fassett by Lynn Mead and upcoming Zentangle weekend

In the last few months I haven’t really posted anything about my plans for completing 1 year of Diva challenges – so it’s more than about time I post this tile! Which is already 5 months old (you can tell from the straight edges of the tile ;-D) and which I never got around to post here… But I still love it very, very much, especially the contrast between the curvy and rather straight lines.

Tangles used: Fassett, Printemps

Challenge #262 was to use Lynn Mead’s beautiful tangle Fassett. I thought it would be nice to keep the number of tangles small this time and to leave some space empty for a change – and the frame really works well in my opinion.

This challenge REALLY got me hooked on Fassett and I’ve been using it a lot ever since I completed this challenge. Just like Paradox, Trelina, Ginili and – the most revent addition to the team – Pepper it has become one of my favourite tangles and is probably my foremost “go-to-tangle” at the moment. All thanks to you, Lynn and Laura! 🙂

If everything goes as planned, there’ll be a HUGE change on the blog in the months to come. I don’t think I can reveal anything yet but it’s something that I’ve been looking forward to do very much for a very long time. Although you won’t be seeing anything new in the next months to come rest assured that there’s an east wind coming… (yes, I do love BBC Sherlock a lot ;-D )

Next weekend will be a very special one: Via Facebook a Zentangle weekend has been organized for a few lucky souls who were at the right place at the right time to register – places filled very quickly and I myself only got in by the skin of my teeth. Since I’m having a very busy time at work, I’m really looking forward to tangling a whole weekend and meeting new, kind people! I’m especially looking forward to meeting Arva from W wie Windspiel who is also an active member of the German ATC website kakao-karten.de. As far as I know, no CZTs are coming, so it’ll just be tangling, talking, eating and of course more tangling. Maybe I can catch up on more Diva challenges that weekend. Or have the time to work on another project… who knows. I don’t really want to make any plans – although I do guess that our host will keep us very busy (I hope not too busy! 😉 ). Since I’ll be arriving the day before, I hope to get in some urban sketching as well. On Friday I bought a very nice book abouth sketching architecture by Liz Steel called “5-Minute Sketching Architecture” and I’m looking forward very much to trying out some of her useful tipps. I’ll try to post a few pictures next weekend as we’re tangling along and of course I’ll be writing a blogpost with lots of pictures and the artwork we created afterwards.

Have a great week!
