Well!! I was on vacation the day Linda Farmer at TanglePatterns.com posted my tangle, Por Fin. What a wonderful surprise! Needless to say, I was thrilled. However, now there is a “tag” for my name, meaning I should come up with more tangles – the pressure, oh, the pressure! ———- Just kidding, I am of the “whatever happens, happens” frame of mind and I may come up with another tangle and maybe I won’t, but I will continue to enjoy creating with the Zentangle method. A BIG thank you to all who have commented so kindly about Por Fin and a BIG welcome to those of you who are now following my blog! I can only hope my ramblings are worthy of your attention. 🙂
Although I haven’t posted lately – life got in the way – you know how it is – that doesn’t mean I haven’t been tangling. I wanted to do this past week’s Diva Challenge with a stencil, but I don’t have stencils. Maybe I should say, I didn’t have a stencil, ‘cause now I do. However, on the Monday the challenge was posted, I did not, and I had to wait in a medical type waiting room for a while that day, so, the time was there, the pen and tile at hand, but no stencil – so I kind of made one up – not a very good one, but nonetheless, a tile I can post here, if not for the actual challenge.
In my browsing the web and visiting other blogs I discovered that Sandy Bartholomew has posted a contest at BeezintheBelfry. It is Tangle Card Challenge #1 – go to her blog and read about it and enter if you so desire. You could possibly win a set of her Tangle Cards which will be available for purchase in September, but she is giving them away in some contests each week. I made two tiles using her YAF tangle. I’m not sure which tile I will enter – I actually have to figure out how to enter it, though – it’s a Facebook thing. (that’s the link to her studio Facebook page)
Here’s the first one –
This is the second one I did – I think I like the second one better – the first one was really a warm-up tile, since I hadn’t done YAF in quite a long time. The next step is to figure out how to upload it to BeeziInkStudio Facebook page. —- I think I’ve uploaded pictures before on my own page though —- hmmm, I’ll figure it out.
Have you found any challenges or contests out there? What have you challenged yourself to do lately? Post a comment and let me know, till then, tangle on, my friends.
