This weeks challenge was fun! I had to try a little to put the two pencils together but I totally like the outcome. I used blue and silver colored paper for my ZIA and even though I think I should have used only two different patterns for the „ribbon“ I’m quite satisfied.
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)
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:
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.
