Can you believe we are already in week twelve?! As we sit here socially distanced from the world I am trying to work ahead a bit and get ahead of my group. Hahaha! Tangle All Around is working hard on this project! Each week I give them seven of the 170 patterns from Zentangle® to work on. We have a good batch for week twelve.
My work space has gotten a little out of control while I work the project. My desktop is 6′ long and I use every bit of the space. Color, paints, scor tape, brushes, Tylenol, my water jar and boom box sit at one end.
Papers, tiles, ephemera, a few brand new markers from Zebra Pen, stamps, and random stuff fill the other end.
And I sit or stand in the middle and work. I’ve been using my Copic markers quite a bit for this project. I don’t like using them for art that hangs on the wall because of the way they fade in light. They don’t do that so much in a book. So Copics are the pen of the day. I love this Cheshire Cat! I have been wanting to do Alice in Wonderland in my Zen-untangled book and this week was the week! Yayayay!!!
Love how this gelli print turned out. I like it so much that I included it in More Tangle Starts! You get a whole page. Here I cut the original in half and adhered it to my book using scor tape. Sometimes I use tape runner but these pages would have a good bit attached to them, so I needed a little stronger base and scor tape offers that.
The patterns this week are really fun! I think these two particularly work well on this background and with the whole Alice vibe. I just realize I stuck that Noom block on sideways. Lovely. We are going to pretend I did that on purpose.
There’s my Cheshire. And I love the Queen of Hearts! Hahahaha! Off with their heads!
A couple years ago, Maria designed this trio of patterns to celebrate the 100th weekly Diva Dare. Each week Laura Harms gave a challenge to tanglers and we posted all our week in a link list on Laura’s post. For the 100th weekly challenge they released Diva Dance. There are three patterns in the set: foxtrot, waltz and rock n’ roll. The ‘diva’ part is a salute to Laura who entitled her website I Am the Diva. Love it! A lot of people don’t realize there are three patterns in this set. Rock n’ roll is my favorite! The tile was given to me by Jules – she colored it and I used it for the weekly string.
It is not too late to join the project. There are 25 weeks of work with a few break weeks thrown in here and there. All the project information is available on Facebook. Join us by clicking here. Hope to see you there!
