Challenge 46 - Halloween

The weekly challenge from Laura at I am the Diva is to create a tile with a Halloween theme.  I often have difficulty with Halloween themed challenges, because Halloween is just not one of my favorite holidays, so I generally stick to more of a fall theme.  I decided to tangle on some pumpkins for my entry into the challenge.

Originally, I wanted to draw my pumpkin on a black tile and tangle with a white pen.  This tile is about 4x4 inches.

After I finished it, I decided I like the black on white better.  Which do you think looks the best?


The pumpkins for both tangles were sketched by hand...maybe if I'd used a pattern they'd be a little more even...but hey! Pumpkins are rarely even!

Since I'm already posting some Zentangle Inspired art...I thought I'd share a few more of my recent drawings.






I really like all of these.  Some of them look really intricate, but they're really not.  I spent about 2.5 to 3 hours on each of them.  They're all fairly large...about 6 x 6 inches.

I'm thinking I might get a few of my pieces framed. Not sure what to do with them then, but I do believe they'd look pretty good in a frame.

Thanks a bunch for stopping by!  I appreciate all your fabulous comments.  Until next time....

♥ Hugs! ♥

Thanks for your comment on my blog! I love your tangles! On the tote bag I just used sharpie pen. When I was finished with it, I ironed it well to heat set it. That way you can turn it inside out and hand wash it.

Wow these are all awesome!

You should DEFINITELY frame your art. These are breath-taking! Wow! I love the first "bauble" and I love your "bouquet". Actually, I love them all!

As for the pumpkins. I like them both. They are different and I like them for different reasons. There is something about the style of the white on black that appeals to me.

I think both pumpkins are just fab - busy I love the smiley faced one! And the other tangles are just fantastic - you are a true artist!

Love both pumpkins. The white on black is cute, but I also like all the intricate tangles on the black on white.

Eden said...

Your zen tangles are amazing Susan! Such wonderful pieces of art!

Terrie said...

Holy moly - now I know what to strive for - these all are just amazing! They look so detailed and intricate and dramatic. Thanks so much for sharing.

Your punkins are cute and full of personality - I think I prefer the one on white - it seems a little sharper (though that could be the photo/scan).

Beautiful work! I was truly mesmerized

The first pumpkin is elegant with the white curved "mesh" while the second is so happy and friendly-looking. I love your take on Halloween, and I just couldn't choose which one I like better.

Definitely get some of your zen tangles framed!! They are wonderful art.

Hi Susan. Your tangles are gorgeous, and yuo should definitely frame them. I think they wuld liook great in groupings like four squares or six toogether with a n inch or so between them.. Both pumpkins are wonderful. I love to see these!
