Mi2 Tree

This week's Diva challenge was to explore the tangle Mi2 by Mimi Lempart, CZT. Ha! I get it now, her name is MiMi...Mi2! Okay, I might be a little slow on the uptake, but I finally got it. Phew. Cute, Mimi. I like this tangle, it seems to have a mind of its own. I wasn't sure where I wanted to go with it so I let it just show me. So, here is my knotty Mi2 Tree.

I've been busy this week with some Bleedthrumanade tangling. It's for a swap I'm doing in the Yahoo Zentangle Inspired Art group. Bleed - thru- manade = making best of paper that has bled through to the other side when you put color down (akin to making lemonade from lemons that are dealt to you). I was given 3 ATC size cards with color spots and I was to tangle within those spots. Do you want to see what I created? Well, here they are:

Lots of little spaces of color. 

A little bit easier. I like this one.

I like this too. After tangling these I realized that I really could've gone beyond the "strings", or color. 
Here's the original instructions for Bleedthrumanade: 

This is what the other side looks like. We are to leave them untangled so the new recipient can tangle away.

So phew! What a tangly week for me. It was fun though, and I can't wait to see what I get in return.

I also want to thank those who voted for me or attempted to vote for me. I know that it was very hard to get through the process and one had to sign up for Google +.  Ah well, I didn't do too badly considering.
