Diva's Weekly Challenge #205

Happy Lunar New Year! For this week, the Diva has challenged us to incorporate some aspect of this year's Zodiac animal - the goat. Actually, the Chinese character that stands for this year can represent multiple animals within this subgroup, according to this article depending on what other character it is paired with. So goat...sheep...take your pick!

Since I'm in the middle of a 30 Day Bijou challenge, my goat is residing on one of those two-inch tiles. Perhaps I should've added Bijou himself...

May your year be prosperous, healthy, and peaceful!

The Diva's 200th Challenge

Laura Harms, the Zentangle Diva, posts a weekly challenge on her blog every Monday. I love reading the challenges and always hope that I can find time during the week to try them out. This week, she's celebrating something special, her Bi-zen-tennial! I had to do my part in getting 200 tiles shared on her page. The challenge included using your "mac-n-cheese" tangle (a familiar term for that tangle you love and always go back to) as a mono-tangle: the only tangle on the tile. She encouraged us to take it to the limit and work without a border, and of course, to include the number 200 somewhere. I continue to try to take risks and be innovative with familiar tangles. I've found, the more you work with them, the more magic just appears on the tile. I really like the one on the top right.

Congratulations and thanks to the Diva for gracing us with 200 weeks of Zentangle challenges!
