Diva Challenge #199 – Hitched

I tried this new tangle, hitched, in my tangle a day calendar. I’m not very pleased with my attempts but at least I practiced before starting on the tile, so I didn’t make the mistakes on my zentangle. :)

I decided to use hitched as a border and put something in the middle. I haven’t used gneiss in a long time and I usually like how it turns out, so I opted to use it. Then I added more shading and made the outermost lines thicker and I actually think I like the results, although I still need more practice with hitched to think it looks good on its own merits when drawn by me.

DC199 UMT Hitched ~LifeOfJoy.meHere you can see my first attempts with hitched and my first attempt at quib, which I did not practice when it was first introduced. Actually, I didn’t like it much because I thought it looked like tentacles and then it brought a Doctor Who character to mind, the Ood.

First attempts at Quip and Hittched ~ LifeofJoy.me

As you can see, the second time I tried hitched, I goofed up and connected dot to dot and then realized my mistake. My first attempt at hitched was too small to draw the diamonds very easily. Also, I cut off the 4th because I have yet to draw anything in it. I’m not real good at tangling in my calendar on a daily basis yet. :\

In case your interested, here is the ones I did on the 3rd. I only filled in the 2 and 3 so far (but I did them both on the 3rd). ;)

Calendar Squill and Squid ~ LifeOfJoy.me

 

Squid also reminded me of the Ood, so I wouldn’t try it before but I actually kind of like it now. It kind of resembles a spider mum that has lost some petals. ;) As with most tangles, the shading really makes it. I don’t think I did enough shading on squill, now that I see it here but I don’t really know how to shade this one all that well. Oh well, there’s always next time.

I enjoy doing the challenges, even though I procrastinate doing them . I hope to begin doing other challenges this year too.

Until next time, God bless,

  1. Thank you for sharing your journey with Hitch and the accompanying tangles. I enjoy seeing other peoples’ processes. Hmmm. Does this make me a Zentangle voyeur? Best wishes for the New Year.

    1. Thanks for posting again Suzanne. I like to glean from others’ experiences as well. I especially like it when someone can tell me how to avoid any pitfalls they may have encountered. ;) Unless you are going about spreading gossip about people’s processes, I don’t think I’d call you a Zentangle voyeur . . . at least, I hope you’re not. :D

      Have a great weekend!
