The Diva’s Weekly Challenge

The website I Am the Diva puts out a weekly Zentangle challenge. My name is Sharlie and these are my entries.

Zentangle: Somnee

There are so many things to experiment with. So, for this tile, I thought, why not color? And, I allowed myself to go over the top. The tile uses a simple design, accentuated by the use of bright neon colors.

Zentangle: Sun Bonnet Sue

This post features two tiles. I am not a quilter, but I love quilt designs. The first tile features classic Sun Bonnet Sue, who was pulled directly from the world of quilting. The second tile, is not mine and I doubt it will be anybodies favorite, but I like it well enough that I felt it has a right to exist in this world.

Zentangle: Dotillism/Pointillism

If you have visited this site before, you know that I usually create my tiles using Inkscape and Photoshop software.

I am the Diva Challenge #356 In this challenge, I was to tangle around my name. It is embedded in there somewhere.  I usually draw in Inkscape, but not this time. This time, I returned to my sketch book. I used a Micron pen and pencil.  I then photographed the drawing and was not at

Zentangle: Several More Zentangles

I have the results of several challenges to share with you, but, before we get started, I want to explain a few things. First, all of these drawings were drawn in Inkscape, and all of the effects such as colors, shadows, bevels, and overlays were added using a very old version (version 3) of Photoshop.

Several Zentangles

As a beginner artist, I am still learning and experimenting with different ideas. There are several tiles presented in this post and each of them represents the accomplishment of a different milestone in my development. I love drawings with a somewhat realistic bent, so the keys are my favorite, but giving the phicops the ability to spin was, also, a major accomplishment.

Zentangle: Christmas Star

This is for the I am the Diva weekly challenge #344: use the tangle Afterglo, by Carole Ohl.  I created the image using a software package called Inkscape, placed it on a black background, and applied the filter Combined Lighting to each of the objects in the image to create a metallic effect.

Zentangle: Paradox and Bunzo

This is for the I am the Diva Challenge #342 — “use the two tangles Paradox and Bunzo.” I played around with a lot of ideas. This one, which is nothing more than a geometric design, is the one I liked the best.

Zentangle on Black

This is in response to the I am the Diva challenge #338. I was really happy about this challenge because I could do anything I wanted as long as I did it on a black background. I had doodled what you see below on a piece of scrap paper while watching an extremely boring television
