Diva challenge

This week has been the typical busy. I am hoping the temperature will cool off and we can finally have some relief from the Vegas heat. I finished this tile a couple of days ago but didn't have the time to post. I have been working on finding new inspiration. I feel like all my work is the same and I need to learn new things. I did this leaf challenge with the letters of my name (hoping to force some new ideas. Not sure I did that but I like the tile, it's basic and simple but stil kinda fun. 

I used Kathy's Dilema, Arc Flower, Tinker, Hypnotic and Yincut

Phicops vs DivaDance

Busy week and not much time but I did get my tile made. I feel like I am in a creative slump and need some new ideas. Off to search the net :)

The only other fun I have done this week. I cut a large piece of scrap booking paper and pulled out some gelly roll pens to see what would happen.

Diva challenge

I really like this new tangle. Like all others it is so simple yet there is so much you can do with it. My first tile in did all in Ing just to get a feel for the pattern. It's not my favorite bit it was fun to experiment a little. 

My second tile was a lot of fun. I loved using Ing in a circle but I think my shading should of been a little different. I will use this pattern in a circle on my next ZIA and see how shading it different changes it. Any shading ideas ??

New Challenge Tile

Loved the challenge this week. Rows are one of my favorite things to do on my ZIA so I really had fun with this challenge. 

Update: I googled what was going on with my iphone and google solved the problem again...I must of made one of the color filters my default setting. I didn't even know that was possible but with technology I am gifted that way :). Here is a photo of my tile without the filter - big big big difference. 

I am also adding my larger ZIA I just finished.  A few weeks ago I went to Hobby Lobby and bought some colored scrapbook pages. They are a heavy stock, great colors and were inexpensive. Some of the pages have a texture on them that is kinda fun too. I always enjoy stripes and it tends to be one of my favorite patterns to play with:

This is a large 12x12 page and the paper really is this pretty shade of green what do next???

Diva challenge

Had a lot if fun playing with colors this week on the water inspired challenge. I used water color pencils and a colored pencil blender pen.  I also used gelly roll pens on the top of the tile. As I was making the tile I didn't think I would like it but it has grown in me ;). This tile was very quickly done and only took a few minutes.
