Fragment D-1, Jester, Abukas

This week’s diva challenge is brought to us by CZT Marguerite Samama. She challenged us to use fragment D-1. I had one idea of how it would turn out but then I made a new pattern instead (a.k.a. a mistake).

The Square One: Purely Zentangle focus tangle is Abukas by Charlotte Carpentier. I really liked this tangle. I don’t do Arukas very well but I like how this one turned out even though my black pearls didn’t turn out very good and look more like dots.

Over on Pattern-Collections the tangle of the day today is Jester by Dorothy Allison. It reminds me of a twist on Cadent and I *love* cadent. :) Unfortunately when I drew this tangle, I wasn’t quite sure how to overlap them. Then I added a very small one and that just cluttered everything. I wish I had stopped before doing that.

I chose to use the string of the week over on Pattern-collections, which is number 46. In true Zentangle fashion, this didn’t really turn out anything like I thought it might but that is okay. I was in the zone because, once again, I began shading right away, if only to cover up mistakes the new fragment variations I inadvertently created. Then I realized I hadn’t taken my pre-shading scan.  So here it is, almost before shading. :D

Preshaded DC#329 ~ Lifeofjoy.meYeah, I’m not too good at the whole fragment thing. ;) But that’s okay. I think it is only the second time I’ve tried it.

Here is the finished tile.

DC#329 ~ Lifeofjoy.meIt kind of reminds me of Fireworks. I think I’d like it better if I white out that tiny jester at the top of abukas. Hmmm, maybe it looks better a bit smaller.

DC#329 ~ Lifeofjoy.meYeah,that covers up some of the wiggly lines a bit better. ;) No, I’m not being hard on myself. :D I enjoyed making the tile and that is what counts, or so I’m told. :D

Thank you for stopping by and a BIG THANK YOU for those that take the time to leave a comment . . . I sure love to read the encouragement. (I don’t reply to them because I figure nobody checks back for a reply, but know I appreciate every one of them.)

Until next time, God bless,
