Weekly Challenge #382

Hey hey!

Sorry today's challenge is late - last night got away from us because B-rad and i had a date night to celebrate his birthday.  We went to an Evening with Kevin Smith, and it was amazing and hilarious and oddly inspiring.  I had intended to set up the blog post when we got home, but it was almost 12:30 by the time we got home.  so

without further ado

this week's challenge is

Weekly Challenge #382: Stripes o plenty

This week's challenge is to use a string of stripes.  Stripes are a fun and easy string to get you started. Often times, for me, the string is where i get hiccuped - so it's nice to have this one in your back pocket.

Here's my before (I forgot to take a FULL ON Before picture, so you get a bit of tangling in this pic)

 Striped strings are also a great way to catalogue or practice 'border' tangles too.

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 #DC382 (Diva Challenge #382) 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. Great minds! I recently finished this meditation for Audrey Overcomer! Stripes galore!

  2. I like that tile of yours and I like this stripe challenge. Thanks!!!

  3. Thank you Laura for this pleasant challenge. Your tile is so nice and concentrated.

  4. Thanks for the challenge! I've been enjoying Ratoon but took a break from it to do some stripes. :) I'm still too new to tangling Ratoon that I didn't trust myself to try to add some stripes behind it. In hindsight, I guess I could have and maybe even should have tried using it in a stripe.

    Glad you had a fun evening out with B-rad.

  5. Nice one, Laura! I really enjoyed it!

  6. I love to fill stripes, another pleasant challenge, thank you Laura!

  7. Stripes are so much fun. In my case it are stripes of paper to make the string.


tangle me some zen, baby!!
