Laura is a sweetheart! She gave us the challenge this week to go without a string. If you know me at all, you will know that I love stringless zentangle. I began in the top left. There was no plan, however, after the first stroke I began playing with an idea that was inspired by Helen over at A Little Lime. I love how she comes up with smooth flowing lines. It was so much fun to just tangle! So let go of your control and join in the fun. Happy tangling!
I didn't have my pencils so I used tint on my Picasc 3 program to get a bit of color on this dare. I have been listening to Christmas music all afternoon and so I am sure it has influenced my choice of what to do. I love the dares that Erin provides for us each Sat. Thank you Erin. I hope you are all having a good end of November!
I have always loved the zinger.....it has a style that is hard to change or alter but it adds to organics a beautiful twistl. This tile is pretty straight forward. I will see what else I will be able to come up with this week.
I was working on my zendala today and realized that I did not like it.....I almost tossed it but then I decided to try shading. I just thought I would share the process. I will post the finished product in a little while! You will find the dare here.
Courtney issued a guest challenge this week via the diva and so away I went to the video she suggested and this is what I came up with. I could not resist shading...I know Disney did not at the beginning but the piece needed something....so shading it was. The tugboat was the inspiration. Okay I must admit that my daughter once asked me to tangle up some Disney for a logo on a shirt she wanted to put on a shirt. I went ahead but many of my tangling friends warned me about copyright infringements. She didn't use the tangle afterall.
This morning I woke up to a new dare....something I love about Saturdays. Regardless of my day....every other week I work on Saturdays, I love working on the dare. Erin is a fantastic person and I so appreciate her beautiful templates. For this week this is the one she shared with us. I had a lot of fun with this one!
Now this was a fun dare. Thanksgiving....pie....yumm! The Pie goes for more than the pie theme. We were asked to use tangle patterns starting with the letter P I E. Now that was a challenge. Erin really wanted us to use patterns we had not used before. That is a hard task, because I have been tangling for over two years so I at least went with ones that I have only used once or not at all. ( That is all except one which I use all the time). The patterns were: Pais, Paizel, Prestwood, Itsy Twisty, Efilys , and Emingle.
Monday morning and a perfect start with the UMT challenge! Now I must say that I have enjoyed the beginnings of my time with socc. Thank you to Laura for providing the challenge and to Erin for the pattern. These two ladies are both a big part of my zentangling world and I appreciate them so much! I hope that you all have as much fun with this challenge as I have. I do love the UMT challenges!
I am a wife, mother, grandmother, clerk, and appreciator of art. Sometimes I try to produce some art myself. Mainly I love the art of others. Doodling has been a big part of my life. Notes were never left unadorned. Now that I have found zentangle....doodling has become more exciting and fun! I hope you enjoy.
