Repeat Pattern Stacks B - Challenge With Judy West

It's been a long time since I've participated in one of Judy's challenges.  I loved all the fabulous stacks I've seen on Friends of Zentangle (Facebook) and was inspired to do a couple of my own.  I'm not sure if I've done it correctly but it was quick and fun.
Thank you for stopping by :)

Weekly Challenge #133: "Tipple - love it or hate it?"

Tipple is one of my go to patterns. I use it as a border, a fill, as an aura but especially like to use it as I have done here - only fill it in sections to create some interest.
Thanks for visiting :)

This is what I worked on today - I love creating ZIAs like this. I think I may make it into a card. I hope you like it.

thanks for looking :)

mums cross stitch circa early 1970s

This is a tablecloth mum made in the early 70's. It's on a lemony coloured binca material - the pattern is European. Back in the day mum used to do a fair bit of cross stitching - we are from Macedonia and I would say the pattern is very much Slavic. I also started making a tablecloth, like this one with a matching table runner and 4 napkins - mine is on white binca and I used red and black. Hers is variated red thread and brown. Mine is still not finished - I should find it and revisit it....38 years later lol :) I guess I get bored easily - from memory I didn't have much more to go - the smaller pieces were finished except the dredged edges lol

thanks for your visit :)

What a tough Challenge this was!! Doing a monotangle is quite difficult made even more daunting using your non dominant hand - in my case my left - it's not very interesting to me, lacks substance but it did make me Zen out even more so than usual - thanks for looking :)

Postcard Swap - Facebook Group Zentangle Artist Trading Card Swap

Been really busy the last couple of days so haven't had time to post these. I have finished all my postcards for the swap (15 plus 1 extra for good luck) - we were to use no more than 3 tangles. I loved doing these and the size is just right.
I hope you like them :)
thank you for your visit - your comments are most welcome and very much appreciated :)

New Pattern - Glace

I was working on the postcard swap and was playing with different patterns and that's how this came to fruition.  I love it when that happens.  I hope you like it and may even give it a try.  I would love to see your version.

Thank you for your interest - have a lovely weekend :)

Weekly Challenge #130 UMT v. XIX: Henna Drum

This month's tangle is brought to us by Jane MacKugler, CZT


Even though I do love Henna Drum, I found it difficult to come up with anything other than a vine - I will have to play with it some more :) thanks for looking

Weekly Challenge #129: String Theory v. XXV: TanglelPatterns String#004

I have been so busy this week and I finally managed to get some tangling done - so here is my entry to this week's Diva Challenge.  Not quite what I imagined it to look like and I am happy with it - I used 'Pais' for the string and ended up putting a border of 'Nvelope'.  Also came across a pattern by Traci Frogly called Thumbprintz - its fab!! I love it!!  Thanks for stopping by :)



and here is my original Tangle Pattern String # 4

I love it!!


Next I was playing and come up with this pattern I named 'S' pots.  I haven't seen one like it posted and in any case it's my version.  I quite like it and for me it is so versatile - has lots of potential - I hope you like it too :)


This is what started the ball rolling with the 'S' pots pattern and went on from there.


another not finished as I will most likely add some colour


Stumbled across this great pattern by Traci Frogly called 'Thumbprintz'  I love it!! thanks Traci - seen here Thumbprintz

and last but not least a piece I've been working on in my lunchbreak using a yummy pinkish bingo marker :)

Thanks for your visit.
