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
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.
Hello everyone! after two very busy weeks I finally had some time for myself and relax a little bit and draw and I have two tiles to share with you.
Let's start with Adele Bruno's It's a String Challenge #338. In this challenge we had a string with four candy corns touching each other, and for patterns to use we had "N'Zeppel" by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas, "Craked" by Lori Howe and "Tira" by Ragged Ray. I had all the intention of using all three patterns but after drawing Tira and N'Zeppel I thought it would be too busy to add another one ;-)
This tile was done with black Micron pen, superfine 005 Prismacolor sienna pen and Crayola colored pencils, and here it is, I hope you like it.
3.5' by 3.5' tile, patterns: Tira and N'Zeppel
A few days after writing this post I looked at the Candy Corns in my tile and thought they might use a little bit of more shading. And here is the end result after adding more shading with graphite and color pencils.
Starting this post with my tile for Adele Bruno's "Its a String Thing Challenge #214". This challenge invited us to join in the 100th Netherlands's celebration of the "de Stijl" (the Style) Dutch movement, and Piet Mondrian's famous primary colored blocks and white fields with perpendicular lines. With this in mind Adele gave us a string with several stripes and the tangles to use were "Paradox", "Hallibaugh" and "Beeline". As much as I wanted to include all three tangles my tile got full with just Paradox and Hallibaugh!
This tile was done with black 005 Prismacolor Fineliner, blue and red Gelly Pens and graphite for shading. Here is the end result:
3.5 by 3.5 in. tile. Patterns: Hallibaugh, Paradox and Black Pearls (in this case in red)
The next tile is not part of any challenge and was done just for fun. This Monday October 9 we celebrate Thanksgiving here in Canada and this tile was inspired by all the delicious Pumpkin, Apple, and Rhubarb pies. Happy Thanksgiving Canada!
This tile was done with black and brown Micron pens and several brown and beige colored pencils, graphite for shading and white gel pen for highlights. Here is the end result:
3.5 by 3.5 in. tile, patterns: Huggins, Bales and Marito
That's it for now...I hope you like them and come and visit often!
Thanks in advance to all of those of you leaving kind comments.
May your life be full of joy and wonder....Stay Inspired!
