Diva’s Challenge #126 „Stencil Fun“

This weeks challenge was to play with stencils or any kind of subject you could possibly use as a stencil. Sadly I have none so I thought about what I could use. Today I walked by the shot glasses in our living room shelf and spontaneously gave it a try. ^^ And then I got curious if there’s a shop nearby where I could buy stencils. I tried every shop I could think of in our city centre but sadly there were zero stencils. I guess it’s not that popular at the moment. ;o)

Challenge 126 Shot Glasses

A few weeks back a colleague asked me if I would do him a favour and create a greeting card for a wedding for him. I was quite surprised and honoured. No one ever asked me something like this before. I said I would think about it and sat down at home to collect some ideas. I wanted it to be something special of course and during my collecting time I thought about the meaning of this one special day – the wedding day. I searched for symbols which represent my point of view and found some flowers I really liked. Lilac for the bond of two hearts, chrysanthemum for stability, freesia for tenderness and sunflower for happiness and warmth. This is my result:

Diva’s Challenge #125 – Birdie Feet

Oh dear…this one was a real challenge. I didn’t know what to do with this pattern and was absoluetely clueless how to incorperate it with other patterns. But while I had a few quiet minutes at work this past week I had an idea after seeing String 57 by Bambi Lint at http://www.tanglepatterns.com and drew a small draft. Sadly I didn’t manage to try it out until today but here it is. I listened to Sarah McLachlan’s „Angel“ repeatedly and sang along and I guess I was in a real zentangle mood then. ^^ It was absolutely calming and I can’t remember that I heard or sensed anything else while I was drawing.

I’m satisfied with the result.
