Weekly Challenge #137

This week’s challenge from i am the diva, was a duotangle using Knightsbrige and Tipple. I don’t use Knightsbrige that much in my work, but do teach it in my classes, so it was an opportunity for me to play around with it a bit more. Tipple creeps in to my work here and there, so that was not as much of a challenge. I really enjoyed playing around with the shading, and hope that the values will show up well in the photo.

“Well” I couldn’t seem to stop with the color challenge and also playing around with well some more, so here is another of those tiles for you to see.

Thanks for stopping by to see my work, and for those who leave me a comment, you truly make my day! Have a wonderful weekend!

Weekly Challenge #136

Another week is flying by, and the challenge this week, from i am the diva, is one of my favorites. Now don’t get me wrong, I love the look of black and white on my tiles, but I also love me some color! 

I did double duty this week, as I had some swap cards that needed to get done for a Zentangle pumpkin swap over at ATC’s for All. It’s a fun place and a great community of swappers, for anyone who may be interested. I used black pen and watercolor for the four artists trading cards.

Everyone have a great week, and thanks for your wonderful comments from last weeks challenge. It means a great deal to me!

Weekly Challenge #135

Well, it was back to school I went, and now two weeks in, and things have finally started to settle down, I think anyway. That is why I have been absent for a while.

Well, you know how you have certain tools that you grow to love? Well, as I was starting to work on well, I had some students asking me about it. Well, one of my favorite pencils….. (It has been with me a little over a year now, as it was the createacolor graphite pencil that I received at my CZT training, so small at this time,) disappeared from my desktop. No one would say that they had taken it…. Sigh. Of course, since I am the one that does all the ordering, I started looking through the catalogs after school. I could not find them. Then it was on to the web. Well, I finally found them and I am happy to report that I have a box on the way. I know it’s a weird thing; some of the other brands are probably just as good. Trust me, I have lots in the room and the kids, also have lots of different brands, that I ask to try out, when I see something new. I just liked this one.  Well, that was my day, and I have had a fun time trying this one out, and as in the past, I was behind with the calendar again, and well, had to catch up! Thanks Laura, for another great challenge! (Check it out here, and see what other folks did too!) As always thank you for the comments, I do really love to see what everyone thinks of my work. Keep on tangling and have a great week.

Well, here is my playing around with Well!
