## Zentangle: Striping

I Am the Diva Challenge #382 The Challenge: Use a striping as your string. Striping is usually done with curved lines, but I could not see any reason why I could not use straight lines. So, that is what I did. I like the result. As I have mentioned several times, I create my tangles

## Zentangle: Circular

## Zentangle: Dewd

I Am the Diva Challenge #372 The Challenge:  Give Dewd a whirl. I had no idea what to do with Dewd, but I do like what I finally came up with. The background is one of my favorites, but I have not had an opportunity to use it lately. I created the tile in Inkscape

## Zentangle: Basic

The Diva’s Weekly Challenge #365 The Challenge: Create a basic tile using simple tangles. I recently fell in love with the found poetry done by Jo in NZ.
