Diva Challenge #212 ~ UMT - Fanz

First of all, thank you for your kind comments on my challenge last week. They mean a lot to me and I appreciate them all.

And yet again, I am posting at a late date in the week ... it has been an off week here at home. Rather hectic with kids mostly. Just a case of taking far too long to get necessary things done and an upset son that was afraid that something had happened to us. Sometimes his autism makes him afraid of things going on and he had somewhat of a meltdown. Things are almost back to normal, so hopefully I can get my challenge posted earlier next week and also get some of my other other ZIAs posted. But I talk too much, so let's get on to the good stuff.....ZENTANGLE!

Our challenge this week was a UMT and our tangle to use was Fanz by Susan Goetter. It's a rather fun tangle, but I must admit that it took me a few nights to get the rhythm of the auras right, but I was rather pleased with it. I showed my tile to both hubby and son and they both had different ideas about which was was up, so I am presenting you here with both of them and you can decide for yourself.

This one is shown the way hubby likes it...says it reminds him of a tree of sorts. I guess I can see it, but he wasn't sure what the Narwal were

This one is shown the way my son likes it...says it reminds him of Willy Wonka's chocolate waterfall and the chocolate river with candies all around.

I just think it's fun and I didn't have any idea of where the pen would take me.  What is your favorite?

The tangles I used are Fanz, Narwal, Nipa, and Printemps with a bit of tipple here and there as well. Anyway, it was a fun one for me and I think I'm going to have to play with Fanz a bit more. It looks like loads of fun.

There are more interpretations of the challenge over at the Diva's website (click here), so go take a look and maybe you will join in the fun! Thank you for visiting my blog and comments are always welcomed and appreciated.


  1. Lezli...I like them both. I think what your family said is true...I guess beauty IS in the eye of the beholder, we all interpret things differently, that is why it is so fascintating for me to look at artwork. Art museums have always been a favorite pastime for me. Your narwal is gorgeous BTW!

  2. I love when that happens, when you just get into it and let the pen do what it will. That is creativity FLOWING! I love your son's Willy Wonka's river of chocolate. I think that is what it reminds me of, too.
    Love your highlights on the edges of the Fanz. Groovy Nipa too. Love it!

  3. Both tangles are so beautiful - they are absolutely great. Sorry, I can`t write it in english about my thoughts when I see your fanz. I think they have an amazing 3D-Effect....

    Hugs from Germany,

  4. My favorite is the second one, that way it 'feels' better. Fanz is great next to Narwal, you really master that one. I'm still trying :-)
