I felt so happy, when I saw all the beautiful contributions to the challenge - I realized that SIRI might be a bit complex to understand for the very first time, but, nevertheless, every tile with SIRI is a great honour for me.
I would like to say a big THANK YOU ALL!! You made me very happy!
And I found a lot of inspiration for my tangle - how cool is that?
This week the DIVA challenged os to draw a tile with the tangle "Verve" by JJ LaBarbera.
Verve is one of my favourite tangles, so I started immediately on the first tile I had on my desk...
It was a tile which I dyed with an Ecoline Watercolor edge in green - doesn`t it look like a first touch of Spring? The perfs are coloured with Prismacolor pencils.
My first Zentangle day workshop last Saturday
... was a new and great experience for me.
I spent a lot of time with preparation , choosing the tiles, techniques, tangles... It should be interesting and amazing for the class, I wanted to teach a little string theory, organiic tangles and drama tangles, grid based tangles and "crazy" ones, the Renaissance techniques, a bit of color and a lot of tangelation.
I was rather happy with my programme and the students were also.
Look at the beautiful results.
I am impressed, that every tile is so beautiful abd so different.
Wow - I LOVE to be a CZT (even if it is only one day a month...)

|Organic tangles (Flux, Poke Leaf, Poke root) with drama Striping|
every student created their own string
|tangelations of BALES on Renaissance tiles|
|Crazy Huggins with Shattuck or so... on Renaissance tiles. Printemps as background|
|Bijou tile with HURRY and some coloured tangelation|
|Coloured tiles (Ecoline watercolor) with a tangelation of Arukas|
Indeed, we needed the 6 hours to create these tiles (with some little sketches between).
All participants were happy that afternoon ;-) and me too!
I am sure - I will do it again.
On Sunday we walked in the Saxon Swizerland near Dresden. The temperatures felt like spring, about 13°Celsius. But we could see the residues of the winter days - beautiful frozen waterfalls and icicles on the rocks- just beautiful nature:
