Weekly Challenge #374

Hey all, welcome to this week's challenge - i have been out of commission all week with Bronchitis... and i've been trying to get everything organized for Artoo's birthday party this weekend.  I am exhausted, but it went off pretty great.  Artoo had a great time and all the kids had fun and i just might sleep for three hundred years.  Let's get to it.

Weekly Challenge #374: Splotch-Tastic
For this week's challenge we very lightly dabble into mixed media - take two tiles (or two papers or two pages in a journal, etc.) and splotch a blob of paint or paint type substance between them!  You can use paint, or gesso, or coffee, or tea, or wine... after they dry, tangle away!

for my splotch i used black gesso

I really enjoy black gesso - it has a nice tooth and a good surface for the white gelly roll.

You don't have to tangle them both - but you totally can!  

Have a great week everyone.

And if you're on the Zentangle Mosaic App or Instagram - i'm @iamthediva - come on by and follow me, and i'm going to be using hashtags on the app for each of my weekly challenges. So if you're game - use the hashtag #DC374 (Diva Challenge #374) for your tile this week! You can also search in the app for people's contributions to the challenge by clicking on the hashtag from inside the app, or using the search function. 
If you have a blog or host your images on line (like on Flickr or Picassa or Pinterest), add the site-specific URL where your tile is posted to the linkey machine below! Don't forget to link back here so that others can join in the fun! (if you don't know how to find this, you can see my half assed tutorial here) Also, please feel free to come back often and visit the links of those people on the linkey machine - don't forget to leave a comment or feedback, everyone loves feedback. ;) 
If you love the challenge as much as i do, please consider leaving a tip (tip jar in the side bar). I write this blog for free and have no plans to make it a paid for service in the future. Buy me a cup of coffee, or a new Micron pen!! Click the tip jar on the side for a monthly tip, but if you just wanna throw a few bucks my way THIS LINK will give you a one time option. A very big thank you to those who have kept me in hot cups of joe. ;)


  1. Being ill and also organising a birthday party; quite a bit in a few days!! Hope you feel better by now.
    I just finished the challenge and liked it more then I thougt Inwould. Thanks Laura! Your tiles are lovely.

  2. What a fun challenge. :) I had a blueberry smoothie in my hand at the time of reading and so I went with it. A bit messy, but it worked.

  3. I always like white on black. Nice tiles. I on the other hand wasn't paying attention very good when I read and started the challenge. ;) I ended up just spritzing my tiles with ink. Oh well, I enjoyed it. :)

    Hope you're feeling better and thanks for the challenge.

  4. Hi Laura! Although I had a busy week, I couldn't resist your challenge. Your tiles are stunning, I really admire the way you used both of the tangles!

  5. Wonderful challenge, Laura, and wonderful tiles, all.

  6. I did the tea splotch from the tea bag I had on the table at Tangle On. Recognize it Laura?

  7. Thank you for the challenge.
