Playing Catch-up: Diva Challenges 218, 219 and 220

The Diva Challenge this week is to use the tangle All Boxed Up.  I loved all the variations that the tangle creator, Alice Hendon, demonstrated on her blog, so I tried a bunch of them.  I really love the different patterns that simple lines can create.  This was a really fun tangle to draw.  Very meditative.
Last week's challenge was all about straight lines.  This was very challenging for me.  At times, I hated this art piece.  I do like the end product.  I used Bilt, Cabana, Jambalee, Mary Hill, and Phroz.
The week before that the challenge was to tangle white on black.  I got creative and tried a crayon scratching.  White crayon covered with black acrylic paint.  Then I scratched out some AHH and Zinger.
I really enjoy the Diva's weekly challenge and I am going to try to keep up with it every week.  I love the meditative feeling I get when I draw tangles.

#1: Good on you for catching up with the challenges and sharing all your tiles.

#2: I like all of them, but my favorite is the tile you did for #219---the straight line tile challenge. I really like the overlapping look your achieved which is difficult when all the tangles are straight line ones.

#3: The white on black one is interesting. Thank you for explaining the technique you used.

I love your boxed up tile and the variety you have created, both in terms of style and colour. Very imaginative.

Nice tiles, all of them! I love that you showed the varieties in All Boxed Up, especially using the curvy overlay. Your straight line entry is terrific, especially using colour, and again, an overlap.

Wonderful job on all 3 tiles. Congratulations on catching up, I know that some weeks it's hard to get things done. Anyway, your UMT tile is very stunning with the colors you have used and the linework is wonderful. Love the straight line challenge...it was a bit difficult for me as well. And the white on black is so fun. I never thought of trying something like that, but it worked for you very well. Nice work on them all :)
