BeeLine

The new focustangle in Square One is BeeLine. One of those official zentangles I learned from Beckah Krahula´s book "One Zentangle a day". I haven´t used it since. It is a beautiful tangle and I have seen it done so well. At that time I didn´t appreciate my outcome. That´s the reason why I haven´t returned to it.



Now I took the chance. As I felt brave today and assertive (that I learned from Caesar Milan I have to be with our dog) I went on with string 153 and let BeeLine take it´s place. I am glad I did. Not that it is perfect but i enjoyed doing it so much that I belive I´ll get back to this pattern again! Bambooz (Julie Evans) is following the string. I wasn´t thinking of framing this, but the thing is there were some splashes from my spilling on tiles earlier left on my desk and some of that came on my new fresh tile. Wud (Joni Feddersen) saved the whole situation for me.

About the spilling and Diva´s challenge. I made one more inspired by Anya Ipsen. She used Aroniaberries and I have a lot of them outside my house so I tried that too.


I had some trouble with this. The color from the Aronia is just beautiful but my pens didn´t like to work on that. Maybe I should have tried to soak up some of the juice before drying... I´ll try to work on that since I loved the color I got from it! The patterns are: Tizzy (Hanny Waldburger), Ruutz and Trelina (both by Eni Oken). Now when I look at this I think of Ghostbusters:)!

I love that your spills travelled onto other tiles, mine too :) Trelina is my nemesis at the moment..it has a life of it's own! The result is a lovely tile Anita. Beeline is a very bold design isn't it? You have it balanced beautifully with the other patterns and the frame finishes the whole perfectly.

Thank's Hillary for reflecting comment!😄

I can't see that your pens didn't work, on the contrary I like this "spilled" tile very much. I love the colors and the tangles you have chosen. It is pleasant to see black/white and colored tiles, I like both results. That Wud is such a nice tangle for a border. It was a good choice to use this pattern with the others.

Thank's Ria! I guess it was the sugar in the berries juice that was the trouble, but I think I know what to do about it further on!😄

I like the depth in you Beeline tile!!! The other tile is gorgeous and the tangles just right next to it.

Your Beeline tile is fantastic. I just love the depth you achieved with the "Wud" framing. The stain tile is great too. It's been an inspiring challenge because now I look at so many possibilities beyond coffee to stain some tiles. I saw that someone just made a series of Traveling Tangles with different stains as starters;-)

I really like how you placed your Beeline. It has such depth to it. Your spill is so lovely. That purple is very vibrant and I like the added yellow. Nice choice of tangles too.

I have trouble with my pens not wanting to work properly when I've I've done something to the tile too. I 've tried spraying some with fixative first, must go see if that has made a difference.
I tend to shy away from tangles like beeline, but this looks great. Also love your spill tile.

I'll try to wash the stain out a little to get rid of the sugar in the juice next time.
