This has been a very busy week for me and I could only find time to draw one tile. I found it really hard to choose which challenge to do, both are so inviting!
In one hand in "I am the Diva Challenge #342" we were asked to use Zentangle Headquarters's new tangle "Dewd" which I was dying to try!. On the other hand, "Adele Bruno's It's a String Challenge#221" had a beautiful Christmas String with three tree cone shapes and after looking at Adele's Zentangled Gingerbread House I loved the idea of drawing something more festive and I felt her string calling me ;-) ....so, I decided to joined both challenges in one, that way I would not miss any of the fun! ... here is my happy result:
3.5" by 3.5" tile with patterns: Dewd, Cayke, Cake, Cuffle, Flux and Printemps
Half way thru, I realized that in the IAST challenge we had to use patterns: Flux, Cruffle and Cake
This week at Adele Bruno's "It's a String Thing Challenge #220" we had a string with curves from the letter "G" for Gratitude and we had to use the patterns "Z-trick", "Gra-vee" and "Printemps.
Here is my tile:
3.5" by 3.5" tile with patterns Z-trick, Gra-vee and Printemps.
In this particular tile I wanted to try all the tips Adele mentioned on her post to make Printemps
This week at "I am the Diva Challenge #342" we were asked to create a Duo-tangle Tile using for tangles the patterns "Bunzo" and "Paradox". I started by creating two areas with Bunzo, although I have to admit after I did them on of them end up looking more like Stipping than Bunzo, but well....there are no mistakes in Zentangle, right? so instead of starting another tile I continued adding the little Perfs and then Paradox behind.
Here is the end result:
3.5" by 3.5" tile with patterns Bunzo, Stripping and Paradox
Hello everyone! First of all I have some exciting news, or at least they are for me! I finally took the time to add a "subscribe" button to my blog. I wanted to do this for some time but it involved getting a bit techie (which I am not!) and learn a new process. So if you would like to receive my blog posts directly to your email you can find the subscribe button on the blog's right side bar and get all set up. If you happen to encounter any problems please let me know with a comment. By the way I would love for you to join Me! ;-)
Now to the tiles. First is my tile for I am the Diva Challenge #340 where we were asked to use the pattern "Wibble". This was a fun challenge. I created this tile in a Renaissance tile using a blue Steadler marker, a fine point Prismacolor 005 sepia marker, a brown and black Micron markers, white gel pen, white Chalk and a bit of Prismacolor color pencils inside Wibble. Here is the end result:
3.5' by 3.5' Renaissance tile with patterns: Wibble, Marasu, Diva Dance and Coil
My second tile is a traditional Black and White tile I did just for fun this past weekend. I used only a black Micron pen and graphite for shading.
