I had two very busy weeks....a Grand Opening of our relocated museum and the fun of having 3 of my grandchildren at home when I did get to spend some time there. Grandchildren or zentangle? The grandchildren won! However, I did enjoy a bit of tangling each day just not enough to get into the challenge. So.......I thought I might just skip my first challenge since I began this journey.....but last night I just couldn't stand it and had to play with Truffle. I know it looks a lot different than Caroline first intended but I did work with the step out and I hope you can see it in there. It was relaxing and fun and I thank you Caroline for your lovely pattern! Thanks to Laura for finding guest challenges.
I tried orange juice and peppermint tea but all they did was yellow the paper a bit so I ended up making a cup of hot chocolate and using a spoon let the liquid run across the tile. Thanks to Amy I found a fun exercise in stained string. Thanks for the fun! Have a wonderful time with your family Laura!
Do you see it on his belly? I just decided to incorporate the pattern in the hummingbird. I really love the pattern Henrike. Laura, I am so glad you had a wonderful time in zentangle heaven!
Thanks to Aimee and to Laura for the challenge. I worked on this for quit a while and though it isn't my favorite it does meet the challenge requirements. It was always fun!
Punzel......I love playing with this pattern. I used marker, my least favorite medium for color but I am trying to learn. I also tried running another line down the middle of the punzel. I had an enjoyable afternoon playing wit]h pen and marker. Sharla R Hicks is the guest challenger for the week. Thanks Laura, for always making sure there is a challenge! I am happy that you get another go at CZT seminars!
I am in such a slump in zentangle right now.....usually it is easy, right now it is so hard. How does that happen? I am still using, the same patterns and trying the same techniques but for me it just isn't fun to see the finished product, though the process is still relaxing. Humm... I guess this is just the way it is. Anyway my auraknot is funky and my mooka has taken a mind of it's own. Really in the end, that is okay because it still was a lovely morning! Thanks Laura for your challenge!
It has been a busy week and I almost decided to pass by the challenge....I haven't done that once since I started the challenges......and I am sure it will happen some time but Artoo is dear to my heart and I love the Beads of Courage idea and all the wonderful photos that Laura shares with us and so I sat down this morning and played with the challenge. I wish I had time to give it another go, but for this week I am grateful to people who rise above the challenges of life with courage. Have a wonderful weekend!
Thanks to Joyce Evans and to Laura for the challenge.....it has been an interesting one for me. I have Bugles on the brain. I even dream about them. I still have a long way to go to master them. Now that I have posted I will go and see what everyone else is doing.....then the better ideas will come! Happy tangling!
Circles string theory......hummmm Laura's was gorgeous. I began several times and then I just decided one circle at a time and adding as I went, this is how it ended up. Thanks to Laura and her ability to pull me out of a slump......I do love the challenges!
