Weekly Challenge #206
MY choice of tool, was wax and an egg!! Last year I used markers on real eggs to create Zent'Egg'les, for Easter. Well, years ago I use to do the real Pysanky eggs. It has been way to long since I have done this, and when I pulled out my tools, I realized, just how much I miss working with eggs and Pysanky! Anyway, the process is slower than that of a marker, but it is very zen and relaxing!
Once I had finished that project, I then I thought I would try another tool that I have been wanting to play with to create Zentangle. Paper strips!!! I have been working on a project where I will be combing Tangling with Microns and Tangling with paper! Tangled,....Quilling!!! Here is my first go at it. (Really so much of quilling is using tangles, but in a different sense.) With Zentangle there are no mistakes. But with quilling, it is a little more difficult to allow for mistakes.
|My tools that I used are in this pic.|
|I used as many scrap pieces of quilling paper as I could that would look ok.|
|I did shading with the gray marker.|
This was so much fun too!!! I truly love quilling, but it takes so much time and patience to complete a project. That's probably why I fell in love with Zentangle. I can see results and finished project within 30 min. to an hour. This project just got me so excited to finish the big one that I have been working on for my niece.
Thanks Laura for the challenge! It's always nice to stretch our comfort zone!!!
go put some
With trying to stay to my challenge, in doing all of my Inchies the Zentangle way, I just had to use Bijou for this one. Then I had to do a little bit of 'play on words'. So my Inchie is with Bijou and 'Snail' mail!!!
|I tried to use as many different tangles as I could, but I have to be honest, this is going to be hard to do all year!!|
I hope to see you all next week
as we Inchie our way there!!
Have a blessed week!!
