String Challenge #166
patterns: Iza, Knightsbridge, 'Nzeppel and Antidots
Adele prefaced this weeks challenge by calling this a ZIA because the string was representational. Left to my own devices, I prefer the abstract and I maybe I'm a bit of a curmudgeon, but I really don't care for holiday inspired art. I enjoy it when others do it but it's just not how I roll.
Oddly enough, this was the first tile I completed this week, even before the Diva and Joey tiles. I wanted to see how well I could mask the Halloween theme;-P
I had so much fun with the Travelling Tangles this week. This first group is a collaboration with recently minted CZT Annette Plaga-Lodde, the mastermind behind the blog CreA(R)Tives. I can't remember who reached out to who first, but this collaboration happened outside the Travelling Tangles Project.
Annette's style and artistry takes Zentangle abstraction to a whole new and wonderful level. I'm always fascinated by her work. She also hosts a Mosaic Project on her blog that is super cool. If you're not familiar with it you need to check this out because it'll blow your mind. I haven't participated yet, but hope to someday soon.
It's raining cats and dogs this morning and I'm feeling very fortunate to have the day off and the opportunity to catch up on a few Travellers and enjoy my coffee.
...to Annette's start
That gap in Kollide was really a stumper. I can't tell you how long I stared at this to figure out how to begin. I had no intention of including gems either, yet there they are;-P
Here's what I sent to Annette
Annette's amazing finish. Isn't this cool1?!
...and the other. This makes me so happy
This set of ATC's were sent out to a handful of swappers
Susanna Redaelli of Milan, Italy finished off her two delightfully;-)
...and this one.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I would love to hear your comments and questions. I'm always curious how you all find these posts that aren't linked to the Diva or Joey challenge.
