catch up: challenge #130

Playing catch up today.
Just finished challenge #130 and noticed that this,
and other pieces that I have done recently,
have shifted (perhaps with the season?)
to more of a Zentangle Inspired Art (ZIA) feel.


Always interesting to see what comes out of the end of my pen! ;o)

Happy Autumn!

It's time for another challenge!
I am continuing with the
 finish my tile
challenges.

I think everyone has
been enjoying them
and if you are like me
and too timid to
jump into a traveling tile swap,
this challenge offers a taste of the fun!


This week I have started with the tangle


which I'm sure most of you use regularly.


We have a wobbly stretch down the middle of our tile,
what you do with the rest of the space is up to you!

Have a great week everyone!

Welcome to another weekly challenge! 

I have another "finish my tile" challenge for you!
This time I have started with the tangle


I absolutely love this sweet little tangle!

In case you are wondering why I just give a basic sketch of my beginning tangle
the reason is that I want to leave the 'shaping and shading' of the tangle to you 
so that it blends with the tangles that you choose and finish with.

If you would rather I add more detail to my starting tangle, please leave me a comment. 
  
Have a great day!

Welcome back for another tangle challenge!

This week I am continuing with the
"Finish my tile" theme
and this one starts off with the simplest of simplest tangles
 

A touch of Tipple in the corners leaves you lots of room to
add more tangles of your choice.

Have fun with it!

back to challenge #127

 
OK, well this came out as an explosion of colour!?
 
Sometimes when I look at my sketchbook I think, 
"Huh?!?"
I was obviously overeager to break out the Prismacolors!
I think for now
 I should go back to just using 2 or 3 colours.
Not my favourite! :o(

catching up

Well it has been a busy but very good week for all of us . . .
should I knock on wood after saying that?!?

The kids are back in school.  Two new schools this year - my youngest has just moved up to middle school and my oldest started high school!  Yikes!
But we're gradually working into new routines.

I think I might be more concerned about the number of colds and bugs we're being bombarded with at the moment.  Between the 4 different schools that the four of us attend or work at, the number is mind boggling.  Crossing our fingers for a healthy autumn/winter!

Let's get back on to the topic of challenges shall we?!

Last night I had a go at two challenges - #128 and #129. (#127 still to come!)

Here is #128 with the tangle Villers #2.
I kept this one simple as a monotangle as I was really enjoying drawing it!


 And here is #129 started with the tangle Sprigs.
I have added 2 or 3 tangles and all of their names have eluded me at the moment.  The top left might be Puf or ??  The bottom left isn't Bunzo, I'm pretty sure there is another one similar?  The little star bursts might be another tangle, not sure.


Call it  "back to school brain" that makes me a bit scrambled this time of year, however, I love the fresh start of a new school year and with Autumn approaching it makes it such a vibrant, colourful time!
I can see some colour likely making it's way into my future challenges!

Wishing you a wonderful week,
~ joey ~
