A little SOMETHING DIFFERENT

Oh What FUN.... Love all these different Challenges... they are always making me think, create something different... and use my BRAIN....

Well today I didn't' really feel like doing any of that... I have a barometric headache... and can't shake it... as the storm is south of us... working it's way up to us..  I had a cup of coffee...  drank 32 ounces of water... did my morning meditation... and then thought what can I do next...  oh yeah... TANGLE....

So I thought for a minute about what I was going to do... as Laura had also given us a little bit different of a challenge today.. and I love it...  I love change... I feel it is ALWAYS good and love to create in a new or different way... keeps me on my toes... LOL... 

I grabbed a piece of paper that I had from another challenge a few weeks ago...  I knew that I would use all these extra pieces of paper that I had experimented on... and this was one of them.... I took my pen and started to tangle...

Here is what Laura at I am the DIVA asked of us this week...


 

My challenge to you this week is:

    Redux, Remix, Revisit a familiar favorite tangle, one you may call a comfort or go-to tangle.

    I challenge you to pick one you have not visited in a while as this revisit opens new channels of mindful creative thinking.

  • Optional: Choose a secondary comfort tangle(s) to highlight, blend and intertwine with your first choice.
  • Go about your exploration using a mindful, one stroke at time approach.
  • Do not rush the process—slow down—breath—take deliberate strokes—appreciate and find joy in the process—know you are enriched by your participation in the challenge.
 
So with this all in mind...
 

 
 
 
 
#1..  I used a piece of paper... 5.5 X 11 inches... never used that size prior to today... so that was different...
 
#2..  I used a piece of paper that I had stenciled on...  that is really weird... 
 
#3..  I used a tangle that I love... Girlande... and started to do my deep breathing... like I always do... to get my lines the way I want them... and also to get rid of this HEADACHE...  it is not fun... wish this storm would hurry up and get over with...
 
 
 
 
#4... I used my same pen... but did use a piece of charcoal to shade with...
 
#5... Used intense water color pencils to create my shading and also to intensify my colors from the stenciling...  (I used Tim Holtz's Distress inks and also a stencil to create my background...) 
 
#6..  I also used Girlande many different sizes on this TIA...  and loved it... 
 
#7.. Also used a word... which I love to do... but usually don't...
 
 
 
#8...  I added a butterfly from a challenge that I did yesterday using a watercolor technique... of Tim Holtz's...  so that is entirely different... a little like Mixed Media... LOL..
 
 
 
 
#9... there has to be a number 9 thru 12...  I like doing things in dozens... oh well.. you get the idea...
I did go out of  the box in a lot of areas... and LOVE it all..    Thanks Laura for the GREAT challenge...   
I think I will have another go at it...
 
My headache..??? Well I still have  it... but it will go away soon... hopefully anyway... and the breathing and relaxing always does ones Body, Mind and Spirit GOOD... so breathe deep and go do another tangle...  think I will... 
 
thanks for stopping by for a visit... and thanks for all the comments  you leave.. I am having a security problem with Flicker... so please know that I look at a lot of the tangles on there... but my security will not let me leave a comment...  so very sorry... 
 
Have a super great day... and enjoy your time tangling...
Love, Light and Peace...Bonnie

    1. No matter what tangle you LOVE to do... it becomes very flowing and it is part of your knowingness... I love a lot of them... and tend to use them over and over... but that is okay as the mood sends me to the relaxed zone... and that is what is so wonderful... thanks for your comment and love... Love, Light and Peace...Bonnie
