N tangle, Tipple and Umble Challenge

Here is my entry for this weeks challenge  at SuzyMosh's  blog. For this weeks challenge we have to use any tangle that starts with the letter "N" and we must also use the artist in focus - Neil Burley's tangles on the tile. He is a mixed media artist, designer,tutor based in UK.

I used all new tangles for this week's challenge. I used Susan McNeill's  " Nine Patch" tangle, Beth Snoderly’s  " Neuron" tangle and two of Neil Burley's   tangles  " Leggo" and " Mile Straight" for my tile for this week's challenge. 

Title: Nine Patch,Neuron,Leggo,Mile Straight
Medium: Sakura MIcron Pens and a Pencil

The artist in focus will be raffling one of his books to one lucky winner. So if you want to participate in this week's challenge do visit  her blog at

This week's challenge for I am the Diva is to use Tipple as a Monotangle. Here is my entry for this week's challenge

Title: Tipple
Medium:  Sakura Micron Pens and a Sharpie

Do check out her blog if you want to participate and for some creative inspiration from other artist's. 

This is my entry for last week's  diva challenge. We had to use Umble tangle in our art piece. 

Title: Origami Zen Swan
Medium: Micron Pens by Sakura
Note: I used an expired coupon paper and created an origami swan. After that I tangled on it with my Sakura Micron Pens. 

Title: Zen Birdies

The Zen Birds (see picture above) is inspired from Susan Mcneill's you tube channel and blog. 

I used an wood bird which I found at Michael's. Used watercolor paper and color pencils, sakura micron pens and drew tangles. Then cut it to fit the shape and used Mod Podge to glue them on. I used 2 coats of Mod Podge.

 I am yet to take a picture of the other side of the bird. Will post once  I am done.

 Thank you all for your time and response in advance. Wishing you all a Creative week ahead.

Happy Tangling !
