Hope your christmas has been blessed! Here is my entry with Eddiper. There is no Flux in it but Tipple showed up and Fescu joined at the end! This time I used my Lamy Fountainpen (which I like very much, mostly for writing though). Thank you for a relaxing challenge!
With the best regards
Hope you had a great Christmas!!
I liked Eddyper. I used one of the variation which looks like little White Calla lilies..Thanks for another fun challenge!!
My tile for this week’s challenge is just a small Bijou...
Best wishes and wonderful last days in 2016
PS.: The weather in Northern Germany is MUCH to warm for the season – 12 degrees celsius!!!! stormy, rainy .... nothing like “White Christmas” at all!
thank you for this Special Christmas-challenge. For me the circle was like a Zendala. It´s amazing how many variations the pattern Eddyper offers. I really like it.
I hope you enjoyed the Christmas Holidays and received many presents in the form of wonderful tiles
Wow Adèle....this was so much fun. I LOVE this tangle!
Thank you so much.
Oh dear, I found Eddyper so difficult but found some quiet time this
Boxing Day holiday to tackle it and added some Scrolled Feather - here
is my completed tangle.
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and wishing you a happy, healthy and
peaceful New Year.
Challenge: Eddyper plus showgirl added
I scanned my tile before coloring, but the shading does not show up like it does for real. Because of time involved I just colored the eddyper design. That is the first time I have used color. I am not so sure I like it as much. Still learning. Thanks for the challenge. Happy New Year!
I just learned how to make gems. I had to draw one on a tile. They are so fun to make! Hope everyone had a merry Christmas.
God Sunday morning and I hope you are enjoying this holiday season!
When I first saw Eddyper, I just fell in love with it and couldn't wait to try it. I guess the feeling wasn't mutual since I never quite mastered it. My first several attempts were all over the place and that was before I tried a circular version. I'm eager to see what the others have managed with this because I really think it's a great pattern.
Thanks so much for your hard work doing this, and I wish you the happiest new year.
In the attachment my ST # 124. It was so nice to do this tile.
Have a blessed and happy end of this year, and all the Love and Creativity for 2016 to you ALL.
Hope you had a merry Christmas and fun times with your family and friends.
I love the tangle you introduced (to me) this week, Eddyper. So pretty and delicate.
Happy new year!
So great to be back!! This turned into a real celebration with Eddyperl starting the action,zensplosion popping up and others joining the chorus! I'm very grateful to be a part of this community of exceptional people. A quote for all .."Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come," Tennyson.
what an elegant tangle pattern 'eddyper' is! it never ceases to amaze me just how these tangle patterns have been carefully broken down into approachable, mindful strokes. for now, i left enough space...in case, if i ever revisit this tile, i might like to tangle some more.
This is my very first Zentangle entry I started learning to tangle only about 6 weeks ago and am very excited to see where I can take it in the future. I love your blog and want to thank you for all the info, advice and connections you share.
Here is my entry for ST 124. My finished tile reminded me of a sheet music wreath I bought in a little shop in town, so I'm enclosing a photo of it for you to see. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
|"It's a String Thing" #124 String by Adele Bruno, CZT
Thought I better get an early start on this weekly tangle. I love the way Katie demonstrates Daviso, but boy was it harder than I thought. I struggled to get the diagonal lines in the right spot. I'll have to give it another shot because I really like the possibilities of this tangle.
Here's the link to my blog
These were two new tangles for me. Thanks for the challenge.
I have had only eight zentangle lessons. I love this and got my artist daughter started on it too. She is thoroughly enjoying it because she has a very busy travel schedule, and is able to do zentangle to help her relax and use her natural abilities. Other art forms take set up time, a lot of "equipment", and clean up time. Zentangle is always ready and waiting for your pen to paper.
Hello from Hungrycorgistudio!
Daviso has always eluded me. I almost got it. But today it got me I think! I loved using the tangles in this quandary of a string to someone like me. :)
It's good for my brain and makes me think. Can't beat that and then it is fun as well. Happy Holidays!
This is my tenth Contribut[ion].Thank you for giving me this opportunity to challenge myself.Have a nice day!!
I like the first of my tangles but thought that, although the 'holiday
baubles' looked quite dramatic they weren't really festive baubles so I
tried again. Now I don't know which I prefer so - I've sent both!
Thanks for another fun String. I loved this week's choice of tangles. 'Holiday ornaments' is one of my favourites. I had never done 'Daviso' before.
I used Linda Farmer's tip of using a diamond grid to draw Daviso. Very helpful I must say!
I did 3 attempts this week. I love them all!!
Here is my contribution..... I found it very difficult. But I'm happy I could "finish" my tile.
I wish you a very happy christmas with your lovely family!
Here comes my entry and I wish you all a Merry Christmas!
With warm regards
The moment i see the string.. i keep staring at it the whole day.. i start wen i actually make the whole visual tile in my thoughts....
This string has an "S"...starts with my name too... i never thought holiday ornaments are sooo lovely to work with... The daviso... it tuk some time for me to actually get it.... daviso has got dat "DISCO luk "... its soo much fun to take out time for this lovely art- ZEN..(though i never make my patients wait)...loved it!
Thanx adele...i love the string thing...
Finally! I have had the worst "writer's block" recently where Zentangle is concerned. I just couldn't get started for fear of messing up. I have a lot of half started tiles that left me cold. But I swore I was going to do this one.
I didn't love it when I started it, but in typical Zentangle fashion, it really grew on me, and now I quite like it. What an interesting phenomenon! I even had some nice Zen moments while working on it.
Thanks for keeping it simple this week!
Hope you and yours have a wonderful Christmas!
this is my entry to no. 123.
As I didn´t use 63y in my last tile I tried it this time… think I have to practise much more!
I wish you a merry Christmas with your loving Family around you. Have a good time!
Greetings from Germany!
This the first time I tried to use a tangle as a background. I thoroughly enjoyed making this tile. Thank you.
Last week I wasn't able to make a tile. So for this week's challenge I combined a pattern from last week(Verdigogh) and this week(Christmas Ornaments) and some Ahh.
Have fun in this busy, busy Christmas time.
Hi Adele, here is my tile for this week's challenge. I have really been enjoying the holiday-themed challenges this month! Thank you and Merry Christmas to you and your family!
Just found your blog this week. Thanks, it looks so fun and inspiring to see everyone's creativity! I Just discovered zentangle a couple of months ago so I'm still figuring some things out (like not tearing the paper when I'm blending my shading :) )
Happy Holidays everyone!
Here is mine! Also on my blog
Merry Christmas to you and all my fellow tanglers!
what i really look forward to is setting aside a moment to create a tile for each weekly challenge. i enjoy being acquainted with new tangles (eg. 'daviso', 'holiday ornaments) and being part of this fun zentangle community. as i started tangling 'holiday ornaments', it serendipitously morphed into a venetian, glass necklace my grandmother once cherished. seems, i get wrapped up in a reminiscent trance when in zentangle mode.
It has been busy for me (and everyone else) these past few days...
Careful planning and lots of lists are coming together to get things ready for our imminent festive season - and have even allowed a little time to tangle! A Christmas present in itself!
My Holiday Ornaments turned into beads, and Daviso chose to be a bit curvy. Two things came to me during the drawing of this week's tile. One - the only way to draw a spiral is slowly! And two - I always think of something I wish I'd done moments after finishing the tile. But there's the joy, as there is always another tile, another tangle to try it on.
