Diva Dance


Laura Harms, CZT, who hosts the popular IamtheDivaCZT blog invited us to guest host for her 100th Challenge blog post.

In honor of this event, we created a new tangle, diva dance. Later on we'll post step-outs for the archives on our newsletter, but for now you'll need to visit her blog to see lots of images and also the step-out instructions.

Here are a couple images of diva dance that we're contributing to this challenge:

By Maria, black and brown Sakura® Pigma® micron pens with white chalk pencil on lokta paper.


By Rick, black Sakura Pigma micron and white GellyRoll® pens with pencil shading and white chalk highlights on prestrung Zendala.


Please drop by Laura's 100th Challenge to enjoy some beautiful images and to add yours to them.

What a great way to celebrate Laura's 100th week! Her weekly challenges have been so wonderful in bringing all of us together in such a creative and caring way. I really enjoyed the Diva painting you did, Maria! Thank you so much for another wonderful tangle...I will be dancing with this one for quite awhile! I also love that when you release a new tangle, you always show us so many beautiful examples of the tiles both of you do! Have a very Merry Christmas!
