So, since there is no new diva challenge this week, I thought I’d give last week’s a redo, since it was not festive at all, unless maybe your idea of a festive holiday is to go on a cruise or be on the ocean, then last week’s was right on target.
This week I went with the second Christmas string on Pattern-collections.com, which is in the shape of a Christmas tree. I decided to use Toodles, the new official Zentangle tangle and Square One: Purely Zentangle’s focus tangle: Onamata.
Here is my tile before shading.
If you look closely you can see the Christmas tree string that I drew free hand. The one on Pattern-Collections looks like a cookie cutter was used to create it but since Zentangle is supposed to be freehand, I did it that way.
My Toodles still need some work but it is a pretty cool tangle. I didn’t do much with onamato but I think it went nicely on this tile to make it festive.
Here it is shaded.
I like the effect of the smudged border, kind of looks like you’re looking through a window. But I still think it is missing something around the border. However it is a busy week and I have lots of things to wrap and some errands to run, so I’ll leave it the way it is.
I hope you have a wonderful Christmas holiday! I know I will!
Until next time, God bless,
