Alpha Beta Soupa


I really enjoyed the Diva's (Laura Harms') challenge this week.  A shout of thanks to Christina Vandervlist for being such a lovely guest hostess!  The overlapping first and last initial strings resulted in a variety of gorgeous and inventive Zentangles and ZIAs. 

I tried one tile with a denser, more complex design:
Diva Challenge #30 using Scroll, Rok Pool, Fern (Monk), Lightbulbs, Beadlines, Zanholli, and Pipkins.

  and one with a lighter, lacy effect:

Diva Challenge #30 using Pekinitch, Quip, Picot, Torchon Lace, Abacus (var), Florz, Rokpool, Corsace, Linked and Tiny Pearls.
Keep on Truckin' Creatin'!

Wow, these are great! I'm new at this and I see some tangles in there I haven't seen before.
