Weekly Challenge #195: "Turning Old into New" 
If you picked a grid-based pattern, pull it out of the grid and make it a freeform one. 
If it’s a freeform pattern, make it a grid-based pattern. That could mean several rows or a single row, drawn as a border.

i choosed "YUMA"

and all of a sudden i came to "RICK'S PARADOX" both of this patterns you can finde on tanglepattern.com
that's how it use to be with patterns and especially zentangle®, you are creating, but what comes out is a surprise.

i wish you a happy week.......peace starts within.

Weekly Challenge 194: “Embracing the Yuck”(=igittigitt)
your challenge is to tangle with your non-dominant hand (including shading and blending).

this challenge is an exercise i wanted to trie since long time, and i'm shure it's something healthy for people who like to be in a balance. i mean to do 90% of everything with my right hand....lifelong....that must have an unbalanced effect.
my experience, to tangle for the first time a zentangle® with my left hand, was great. because of the challenge i had a reason to go through....it was a volonteer-struggle.
as patterns i choosed "crescent moon" (zentangle), which i drew so many times with my right hand already.
and the second pattern: "purlbox" (sandy steen bartholomew), my fist time to draw this pattern.

mmy signature came out mirror-inverted. an other interesting thing.

Weekly Challenge #192: "UMT - Seton by Cris Letourneau"

Your challenge this week is to use Seton or a tangleation of it in your art this week OR deconstruct a pattern you see around you and use that in your art. Enjoy observing the patterns all around you.

o.k., the challenge fit, with what i really wanted to do this week: DECONSTRUCT A PATTERN.
i showed "ALABASTRO" last week. to desconstruct it, is far diffrent than to desconstruct "LEAFLET" by helen williams.....which is a very beautyful pattern too,  to see the step-out for "LEAFLET",go to see helen's blog: alittlelime.blogspot.com


i made also a tile with "SETON" by cris letourneau, CZT
SETON and ALABASTRO on a renaissance-tile, black and brown micron pigma, pencil, white charcoal pencil, caran d'ache colour pencil: green, yellow, red, blue, that's it.
if you leave a comment, i appreciate it. have a happy time.
