This week I’m doing the twelfth week of the Zen-Untangled project in the Tangle All Around facebook group with Alice Hendon. Last Saturday she started week 13 after taking a week for catch up the week before and I did nothing artistic at all. I’ve been reading.
So here I was without anything to show for myself once again and almost shared the lettering I’ve been doing this year but decided that I really want to continue with the project and not get behind (any more behind). So I got out to ATCs and did the two step-outs that I needed to do for the week: Drawings and Noom.
I must have been in just the right head space because I was able to do them both without much frustration at all. I tried to make friends with Drawings some time ago for a Diva Challenge and it turned out pretty nicely but I haven’t played with it at all since then.
Here are the two step-out atc I did.
So this week I remembered to take a picture (but not a scan) of the string before filling in the sections. But then I completely forgot to take a scan of the lineart before shading. My my my . . .
I actually had no intention of using Drawings in this week’s tile. But that line in the string just screamed Drawings to me, so I did. I also had no intention of using Rock ‘n Roll in this week’s tile, even though it seemed perfect for that circular section, because again, that is not one of my comfort tangles. But I did it anyway.
Here is the picture in overcast natural light of the tile before shading.
Here is the scan of the tile after shading.
We watched a video on youtube the other day of a gal harvesting lotus seeds. Michael said that the Diva Dance here looks like that and I agree, it does resemble it. I like Drawings best without all the detail lines in it.
Here is the finished tile in overcast natural light. It interests me how shooting the picture from a different angle changes how it looks to some degree.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope that sharing my artistic endeavors encourages you to pick up a pen and put it to paper. It really is easy, just follow the steps. (Go to youtube and type in the tangle you want to learn with the word tangle and you should get a decent tutorial. )
Until next time, God bless,
