Diva Challenge #343 – Dewd

After a couple of months of little to no posting, I’m back hoping to renew a routine of sharing my tiles and other projects. During my absence I was busy working on rebranding the blog (there’s some more to do). In addition I was laying the groundwork to start a home business.

This week’s Diva challenge is to explore the latest official tangle, Dewd. This brand new tangle was introduced in a recent Zentangle.com newsletter, which also featured a video of Maria demonstrating how to draw this new pattern.

Diva Challenge #243 Entry
Dewd and Paradox

For my tile I chose to combine Dewd with Paradox, and I also added a touch of Tipple. Dewd reminds me a lot of Fescu and adds a cool variation on the aura.  I had a little trouble with the spacing between the fescu-like elements, but overall I enjoyed working with the new pattern.

Square One on Facebook recently also had Dewd as a focus tangle. I posted a different tile to that group which I think has a real botanical look to it:

As long as you are here, I’d like to bring your attention to a previous post I made concerning a possible new tangleation. Would you mind taking a look and letting me know what you think?

As always, thank you for visiting!

  1. Welcome back! I had been wondering where you were as I always like to see what you have done with the challenges of the Diva. I have been absent for quite a while as well, and need to get myself back in the challenges. I like your takes on Dewd. I found it a fun tangle to play with and love the unique aura that Maria showed in the video. Both of your pieces are very well done. Good to see you back again!

    1. Thank you so much for the welcome back, and for the kind words Lezli! I really appreciate it, and it’s good to be back. I’m glad that you have returned too, and look forward to seeing your lovely work for upcoming Diva challenges. 🙂

  2. It’s great to see you back and I love the new look;-) Your Dewd pieces are both lovely! I was also challenged by the spacing between the stalks of the fescu’s and prefer the more botanical approach. I do love your composition with Paradox though because they really compliment each other nicely.

    1. Michele, thanks very much – it’s good to be back! And I’m so glad that you like the new look! 🙂 I’m not quite sure what made me decide to pair Dewd with Paradox, but I’m happy with how it worked out. Thanks again!
