Diva Challenge 202: Chebucto vs Copada

This weeks Diva Challenge was a duo tangle. Laura gave us two tangle patterns: Chebucto vs. Copada, both by one of my favorite CZT's, Margaret Bremner. If you click on the pattern names it will take you to her website where she does the step-outs. I vaguely remember trying Chebucto before but not Copada so it was fun to do two patterns that I was unfamiliar with.  The tile turned out a little busy but I had fun with it anyway.

I've had good  news lately. On Monday I won first prize at the Promega Art Show with 'Ghost In The Barn:

It came with a cash prize and then I sold the drawing the same day! Cool! 

I also attended the Wisconsin Zentangle Artist Coalition meeting last Saturday. We had a great meeting; lots of tips, tricks and beautiful work to see. It's great to network with other like-minded artists. It also makes you realize how far you have to go when you see some of the beautiful work that others are putting out there. I know that Zentangle itself is about the process and not the end result but...DANG... there was some amazing talent in that room!  I am looking forward to WiZAC growing and evolving. There are lots of neat plans in the works, the Expo, retreats, future meetings, etc. So all in all it has been a week full of tangley goodness! Tangle on!
