What a rich fun challenge, thank you so much to Maria and Laura for the inspiration! I am going to be going places with this opportunity that I do not even know yet, So much to explore!
My son talked me into only shading half of each zendala dare......crazy but it works.
I finally came up with something I was willing to share for the challenge. I am having one of those block moments in tangling. Kuke is a great pattern, I am just stalled in my creativity! Maybe it is the result of several busy weeks. It was fun to just play with kuke and I look forward to many fun tiles using this pattern.
This week we have a guest stencil from Genevieve Crabe! The template is really beautiful, my first thought was that it could stand alone without any zentangle. It was really fun to work with. I had such a busy weekend that I will just quickly post what I came up with.
The challenge this week was to work with the new official zentangle pattern "Shway" Totally geometric and fun, I wonder if I can eventually turn it into organic....humm....I'll be working on that. Big week, my daughter will be marrying on Sat. and thus the web page design has been changed to anticipate the day! I need to add one more exciting piece of news....my sweet little grandson arrived this morning and he is so fabulous! The 6 hour drive was worth it just to hold him for an hour. How I love you little A.W!
The first of the month dare always has a twist. This month we are only to use pencil for the template. It was fun...but hard to define. I finally decided to use an art pencil to get better shading.
It took a while this week, however, I couldn't not do the dare. I think I made it a bit too busy, but it was fun. I will go look at yours now. The decor for the site is in celebration of my daughter's wedding on May 11th.
So many things have been happening in my life that I apologize to those of you that I was not able to visit last week. This week will be better. I have three children who graduated from college on Friday. It was a mad rush to try and make sure each felt our love. We had to divide to attend all three graduations. They did not all attend the same college. Then on Saturday we had a wedding open house for another daughter. It was a fabulous week for family and everything went beautifully.
I love that we are now able to revisit the blind string, it does force ones thoughts into a different direction. It was so much fun and relaxing. Thank you Laura!
Chewie has named "Earth Day", "Amanda Day". I love the idea of a name for this great and beautiful world we live on. In celebration of the earth and the need to preserve her beauty we give her a day in the year to reflect on how much we appreciate the miracle of her presence in the universe. I find that the colors of nature draw me in like no other beauty can. I use to say my favorite colors were green and blue because in nature the shades of those two colors is so diverse and rich. I have come to love all colors because I now know that they are all presented in all their glory on this planet we call earth. She does have a spirit and I hope we do not make her groan in sorrow by the way we live. I hope you all enjoy the challenge this week!
Zendala Dare #54 had a totally different shape and I found it intriguing to work with. The top is the way it really looks... the bottom one I played with my editing program!
