Something New

Good Day, everyone.

The virtual book club mail didn’t fill the inbox yesterday, so I have time to do a Diva challenge. Yay. 

I really love the new tangle in today’s challenge. It took me a few days to get it right, but I think it shall become a favorite. 



When I first started tangling, I used to sit on the couch and work while my family watched TV.  After becoming a CZT, I stopped. Strange as it may seem, I think I like my art better when I am not quite so focused on it. It could be just a coincidence, but I will be investigating further.  

So, do any of you notice a difference, good or bad, in your work depending on whether there are distractions?

  1. Two beautiful tiles with lots of movement and dimension. Great work. As to your question, I live alone and always have the TV on either on an old movie on TMC, or the classical music station. I prefer the background noise. It doesn't interfere with my creativity. The hours just seems to fly by and I know it's time to take a break when one movie ends and another starts – lol.


  2. I find that I actually like my practice runs in the sketch book MORE then I do my finished tiles…i think I "over think" my tiles….need to just do the tiles with a more relaxed mind.


  3. I can do it either way, with or without distractions. I haven't really paid attention to whether or not one way yielded better results. I guess I will have to investigate that.


  4. That is what my daughter thinks I do also. She said, "I've seen you tangle in front of the TV. You do get meditative. You just don't think so much."


  5. I like your strings on these and how you incorporated the challenge. Very cool. I'm not sure if distractions have any affect on me. Lately I have been enjoying the silence.


  6. So much to see in these ZIA's! Great job! As for me, I guess I can deal with distractions, but I do need a kind of inner rest to concentrate when I start tangling. Only then I experience what I call the "ZENsation"!


  7. Very nice, Cris. I like to work downstairs in the lounge in winter (there's a wood heater). Lots of distractions, but I feel more in touch with the family. I probably draw more, too. Don't notice a difference in the end resuls, though.


  8. Love all the twists and turns and the organic feeling both of your tiles give. I really enjoy tangling propped up on the sofa with lots of pillows on my lapdesk with music in the background, but i pretty much tangle anywhere, even in a line up using the zendala tin, I keep in my bag as my table. LOL
