Hello there!, this week at Adele Bruno's "It's a String Thing Challenge #230" we had a string with 4 curved lines, 3 horinzontals and one vertical, and for patterns we had "Skelter", "Funsin"|and "Knightsbridge". I have to say that normally I don't love heart patterns but to my surprise I really enjoyed and actually loved both Skelter and Funsin!
Here is my take on them:
3.5" by 3.5" tile with patterns: Skelter, Funsin, Knightsbridge and a few Pearls
Hello everyone, this week at "I am the Diva Challenge #351" we had a string with hearts and for theme the Olympics. The challenge's title is "Heart of a Champion" very suitable to this moment when we are all watching the amazing Olympians do their best!...while cheering for our countries... Go Canada! ;-)
Here is my tile:
3.5" by 3.5" tile with patterns Printemps, Prestwood, Reeds, Purk, Zander and Msst.
Hello everyone! I am so glad to be back! I haven't participated in any challenges since Christmas time! I have been so busy, first with all the normal Christmas things and then as a New Year's Resolution I made the executive decision to add my other blog (which is about everything really, from decor tips, to recipes, to ideas I found, party decorations and so on) into this same website. Having both of them in the same place is just so much easier and convenient. Now you can see this blog as "CraftyGirl's Zentangle's Blog" and my other blog is just "CraftyGirl" (you can see both of them on the menu above), maybe you would like to visit it one day ;-). I also made a few decorative changes all around the website, I hope you like them!
Finally all that is done, and hopefully I will have more time on my hands for drawing... at least I hope so!
Now let's get to the Challenges. Starting with I am the Diva Challenge, where we had the beautiful tangle "Rimana" to work with and a heart string. I loved "Rimana" and it goes so well with "Melinda Barlow's Rixty variation"! they both are so flowy and organic I had to pair them with flux. I was so happy with my drawing on the corners and intended to do everything with no color, but once I added Bales, the poor corners kind of disappeared!...keeping with Zentangles idea of don't panic and just keep going I calmed myself and added color... hopefully you will be able to see them!
3.5" by 3.5" patterns: Flux, Rimana, Bales and Melinda Barlow's Rixty variation
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
