Diva's Weekly Challenge #250



Recently, some friends asked me to share some tangling tips with them. It makes me think about if I become a CZT –and I hope to in June—how should I prepare my class? So I looked back at some patterns that I already learned, and practiced them over and over again. I am so happy to see this weekly challenge is back old school.

Here are 2 of my tiles for challenge: because I made some mistakes and blackened the background, after finishing the first one I found this is not old school anymore, so I drew second with Linda's string 188.


Patterns: Mooka, Ahh and Nymph

Patterns: Drupe, IX, Cubine,Fassett, Poke Root, Onamato

Thank you for coming and any feedback is welcomed!!

*About Tomorrow’s Election

Tomorrow there is a big election in Taiwan! It will be very important for Taiwan, not only because this is an election of the president and members of congress but also because this will be a choice between two different kinds of national definitions: would Taiwanese like to be closer to China in the future or not? I don’t want to, and I guess most of Taiwanese don’t want to. So tomorrow will be a big days for us. We will very likely have a female president, who will be less close with China than our current president.


Since the first of January, I also started my “tangle a day”. I find that is not easy for me. Not because I can tangle every day, but because I want to spend more time on a real tile rather than a diary. I hope I can keep going. 



最近為了實踐「勤能補拙」之真諦,開始回過頭用黑筆白磚練習了一些基礎圖樣,盡我「毫無想像力之大腦」的最大能力去做點變化,希望將來有朝一日成為老師時,能夠在學生面前看起來也可以出神入化。

所以看到本週挑戰是回歸初衷時,我真是鬆了一口氣,總之就是拿起紙磚畫就是了!不過第一枚紙磚莫名發展成這個樣子,所以我又隨意去翻找TanglePatterns上的某暗線,以此為底來添加圖樣,非常老派,非常單純,第二張大概只花了20分鐘就完成了,完美契合Zentangle的初衷。

禪繞之餘,明天大家都要去投票喔!

  1. Two lovely tiles, and it looks like you are doing well with your tangle a day calendar. I have done a couple of years and to be honest didn't keep up real well. I finally used it to learn new tangles in, and experiment, and then just added the date that I really added it to the book, next to the tangle. Finally filled them and they are fun to look back at.
