Weekly Challenge #2 Double Pencil

Certified Zentangle Teacher [CZT], Laura Harms of I Am the Diva blog, has begun a weekly zentangle challenge to inspire weekly tangling. This weeks challenge involves a special 2-pencil technique created by another CZT, it is described in detail here.

I have been doodling all of my life but recently learned the zen of doodling known as Zentangle--more about that later. While not a "certified" Zentangle teacher, I do consider myself a Zentangle artist. I hope you enjoy my tangle for Weekly challenge #2.

Thank you for looking!

Blog News

I have made a decision regarding my creative blog this past month while doing some searching in my life. I need more creative time in my life. I am going to pubicly challenge myself to create weekly and post.
As part of this commitment, I am placing myself into a weekly bloghop to make myself accountable. The first bloghop is just a short 4 weeks away and celebrates my new cyber-friend Jess's birthday: KinderStampO's 34 Birthday Balloons and Counting Bloghop! I'm very excited to be part of this fun bloghop and hope it will start me on my way to a successful creative new 2011!!
Happy New Year everyone!!

Super S Tangle

I have a vision of individually tangled letters spelling my children's names on their walls. I want them to be in small frames individually. While shopping before Christmas, I came across a steal of a deal with varying sizes frames 10 frames ranging in size 4×4 inches to 8×10 inches. Perfect for spelling W I L L and S A M. There would be a few left over. I liked the idea that the frames will have varying sizes.
I proceded to play with letters, how I would make a base....would I print off an outline of a letter on some cardstock and then tangle away around it? or would I free draw each letter? In this practice S, I have free-drawn the s and the tangled on. I like the outcome.
To check with my kids to see if they would think this was as cool as I, I first showed the S to my daughter--it's the first letter of her name and technically could be her S. She proclaimed that it was a "Super S."
My son also really liked the S and also tried to stake claim since our last name begins with S. My idea, being met with approval shall move forward. I will share the final results as they are made. For now, enjoy my "Super S."
