My first tile represents my own beads of courage. Regular visitors to this blog know that I'm a breast cancer survivor. I used the Breast Cancer ribbon for my string and Tangles starting with the letter B for my beads.
My tile is therefore a 'Beads for Boobs with B tangles' tile. Tangles I used include Barney, Bateek, Bunzo, Bales, Bask-it, Baton, Balo, Beelight, Borbz and Buttercup.
A special shout out to the amazing Linda Farmer and her Tanglepatterns.com website. I referred to her site during the making of tile as most of the Tangles I used were new to me and I couldn't deconstruct them on my own.
My next tile was just me playing around with colour. I used Buttercup again. I was never able to draw it before but now it's working for me.
I've been doing lots of other Zentangle drawing lately. Today I'm only going to share one. It's a work-in-progress ZIA on A3 card stock. The idea came from a recent IAST challenge set by Adele Bruno which asked us to use Fengle as a string.
You can see that I've done that, and added Ellish and Skye, which have been featured in a few Zentangle challenges and blogs of late.
The finished piece will have colour. Not sure where, just that I want to add bright pops of colour to enhance and not detract from the Tangles.
Here it is.
No more excuses
This mantra seems to be working for me. I've been to the gym for four days in a row and will be going again for the next couple of days.
I can now do full push ups on my toes and I have muscles in my arms that I can see AND feel.
My thoughts, heart and prayers go to those people affected by the shooting in Florida.
Have a good week.
