I have surely missed Adele Bruno’s It’s a String Thing challenges every week while my 100 Days of Zentangle project was ongoing! This week, although chronically late, I’ve actually finished a tile! I’m so lost on weekends, now I’m not posting on Saturday and Sunday, I’m glad I have it!
This week’s challenge introduces Zentangle’s newest pattern, Doodah, and pairs it perfectly with KITL by The Ragged Ray’s, CZT, Jem Miller. I’ve had a few tries with KITL now and Jen’s advice really helped me get it right this time! Thanks Jem! She advises to start your stroke at the center cross to help give you a more even looking result! I like the way it turned out! Doodah is a very simple ribbon tangle that doesn’t even need a step out, but here it is anyway!
Thanks for another perfect challenge Adele! If you’d like to join the It’s a String Thing challenge, you can start at Adele’s blog TickledtoTangle.
Next I want to announce a few changes in my upload schedule for YouTube. I have a long-standing Monday appointment and I need to change the live-stream time to 8:00 am CST (GMT -5). I am still doing a trial of my Zentangle Meditation Mondays. If you haven’t tried it out, I invite you to try one out! So far, the feedback has been great and I am thrilled to be able to help you guys relax! Here’s a link to the first week’s live-stream. I’d love to hear your feedback!
Tuesday mornings I will walk you through some new tangles to add to your tangling repertoire. Last week, we did 3 patterns from Brian’s book, and this week, I’m planning 5. They are quite simple and perfect for beginners. Here’s the link for the video.
Finally, join me for our new Zentangle Dingbatz series based on the amazing new book by CZT, Brian Crimmins! This book is a wonderland of ideas and projects for tanglers, experienced and beginners alike! This week we will focus on the very cool “Zine” project in the book, making a Dingbatz sampler for inspiration! We start the project on Wednesday, July 24, 2019 at 9:00 am CST (GMT -5).
Thanks for your support! I’m excited about what the future has in store!
