How are we halfway into January 2015? Well I am still kinda in a post Christmas haze…! There’s much to do and tangle and I certainly hope I get out of my sloth mode really soon xD
Do join us if a daily challenge is your thing. Here is the link to Anoeska’s Zenuari blog entry 🙂
Here is my compilation of my second week at Zenuari ^^ [clicking on the images will take you to Flickr]
Day 8 – Background Wash
I struggled with this one, for quite a long time. I don’t really paint anything except my own nails, so I did play with the idea of using nail polish for my background wash. I actually attempted to do so on a few tiles but I ruined them once my Microns hit the painted surface xD Eventually I used a colour pen, which was supposedly yellow 😛 It came out bright orange, oh well.
Anyway here it is.. I cheated – I tweaked it down a notch using my photo editor xD I tangled up Cockles & Mussels into my ING and embellished with Mooka & Kelp. Pretty ordinary, save for the garish hues.
Day 9 – Winter
The last time I’d experienced a proper Winter with ice and snow was in South Korea, in 2011. As much as I love Winter, the cold, and snowflakes, I live in the tropics and it was kinda difficult to think about Winter for this challenge because the days are bright and blustery here.
I ended up drawing a mini-dala using Fife as the beginning of my snowflake. This was probably not the best choice, because my snowflake looks too much like a flower xD
Day 10 – Blind String
I love blind string challenges and this one was no exception ^^
Flux and Sand Swirl literally flowed out of my pen as I did this one. However, I spent a LONG time trying to think of how to fill up the oval space, and almost wanted to use Meringue to do so 😛 But I left it in the end because I thought it looked quite cute just like that, with the empty, airy, centre 🙂
Day 11 – Zendala Sunday
Whilst catching up with my aunt and cousin sometime last week, we chanced upon a craft shop clearance corner. I found a few pieces of very pretty scrapbooking paper which I thought would make great tangle surfaces.
Although not as tempting as the Shikishi board I played with last week, this piece certainly had its own charm. I tangled a large ‘dala with a Cross in the centre, using a teal coloured pen.
The colours weren’t exactly what I had in my mind, so I again, tweaked the colours with editing software. And voila ^^ I am very pleased!
Day 12 – Biggify
Since I usually draw my Sand Swirls tiny, I picked this to use, large.
Day 13 – Use tangles that start with your initials
I picked Dust Bunnies & Lily Padz for this one – and my, they make a cute couple! Don’t they?
Tangled on old book paper, mounted on a postcard blank.
Day 14 – Circles
This is actually tomorrow’s challenge 😛 I figured I’d not be able to get to it in time anyway, so I decided to do the challenge and upload it together with this post ^^
What better than to marry Printemps and Cruffle? I couldn’t leave out Tipple, so I tangled some in as well ^^
It’s the 200th challenge over at the Diva’s! Wow 🙂 I cannot help but feel a sense of awe at some tanglers who have completed ALL 200 challenges! It is quite an acheivement to celebrate, indeed!
For this challenge we were to pick our “mac-&cheese” tangle, in other words, our ‘go-to’ or most-often-used tangle, and feature it in a monotangle. Somewhere on the tile, the number 200 must be visible.
I picked Trentwith – it was a toss up between Trentwith, Mooka and Sanibelle 😛 I added a few spots of colour, just for fun.
And with this, I shall sign off to visit other entries ^^
Till next week!
