Mush! - It's a String Thing Challenge #203 and Diva Challenge #325

This was my submission for It's A String Thing # 203.


They wanted something old and something new so I went with Marasu - a tangle that I had recently learnt from CZT Mabel , and Hamail - which I had never tackled before (I confess to having "cheated" 😔- I went to TanglePatterns.com to search for radial tangles to fit the feel that I wanted to achieve and I found Hamail which was perfect for what I wanted). I tried to go for a yin yang Zen feeling - did I get it down?😅 

Starting with the String Thing Challenge, it appears that the last few days were meant for new things and new adventures 😀! 

I tried my hand at auraknot - a tangle that has intimated me and taunted me from afar! I was too chicken 🐔to take up the challenge, but I finally did🍗! 


Whilst on the "new adventure" train, I wanted to try something different with one of my rainbow tiles🌈.


So I set to work and then promptly got stumped at how to complete it 😓 But the cosmos 🌌 has its way of making things work out and TADAH 🎉 this week's Diva Challenge was the answer! 

But wait! Peanuckle? Another one of those scary monster tangles? Wasn't one this week more than enough! Oh man oh man oh man... but I NEEDED to finish this tile💪!

So I did.  


I tried my best on Peanuckle.  Think it came out a bit too straight and unpeanutty(?)  but I do think it completed my roofing quite nicely. All in all I'm pretty stoked with how this tile turned out👻.  Nine tangles were used to create this little mush-house (as opposed to a mush-room geddit geddit😁). 

Peanuckle was perfect in that it gave the contrast that I was looking for without completely obscuring the colours of the rainbow tile 🌈 - Guest Diva Jessica must have used her super secret "zentangle-senses" to detect my problems, discretely giving me the "answer" in the form of her Guest Diva Challenge so as not to expose her secret zentangle superhero identity! Oops 😳 did I just give it all away? 

😀Thanks for the rescue now-not-so-secret zentangle superhero Guest Diva Jessica (oh wow that's a mouthful)!

    Your "mush-house" is adorable! Good job on the peanuckle there. It's a great compliment to the other tangles. For it being one of your "scary monsters" you did a fantastic job! And thanks for taking part in #DC325!

  2. This is an adorable little mush-house. However, I wonder how many mush-rooms and muth-rooms does it have?

  4. Nice how you made use of the top of a mushroom for Peanuckle. I think it fits the bill quite nicely.

  6. I got it! Mush-house indeed. I was as excited about using Peanuckle as you were, but I must say, you found a much more inspired way to use it than I did. It's quite perfect for a mush-house roof, of course. Now why didn't I think of that? ;-)
