It's a Sting Thing #41

I started out my day today with 16, 6th, 7th , and 8th graders working on the courtyard gardens in our school. We had a great time together on our service day, weeding out the gardens, replacing a couple of trees, moving another to a new spot and planting some annuals to fill in the empty spaces around the perennials in the butterfly garden, that we started a number of years ago. However, now I’m ready for a nap!

This weeks It’s a Sting Thing, started with Margaret Bremner’s string 026. 
In honor of the r’s in her name we were to use these tangles.
River by Suzanne McNeill, CZT
River Stones by Lori Howe
Rixty, an official Zentangle® pattern
and to add a grid based pattern to the mix,  Ripples by Helen Williams

I decided to use one of the round tiles for this challenge. I first washed it in some watercolor, and then tangled using two different blue microns, and finished with a little shading in color pencil. Enjoy.

 I appreciate all your wonderful comments, so thanks!
Everyone have a great Memorial Day Weekend!

  1. It's so beautiful! I love the way you incorporated Rixty. I couldn't find a way to make it fit on my tile. Your tile definitely makes me think of water.
