with some chimes

I hope that you enjoyed the "Spring" challenges,
now I'm challenging you to try something totally different.

I enjoy photographing nature partly because
I like to look for the hidden patterns and shapes
that nature has a way of creating.

This gave me the idea for a new kind of challenge -

use this nature photo as a string

Draw the string that you see in the photo
and then fill with tangles of your choice.
I look forward to seeing your design!

inside my sketchbook

Some of my cut and paste sketch book pages that I tried last night . . .
Paisley design (I think mine needs colour)

A daisylike flower that is repetitive very much like a tangle pattern.  This could be altered slightly to create lots of different styles of flowers.

The lovely Spring (almost Summerlike) weather is still here
so I'm heading out to the garden to tidy up.
I will hopefully discover a "new" outdoor space to spread some creativity.

Enjoy the weekend!

joey #56 and diva #213

After a week of producing nothing creative, I forced myself this morning to do some challenges.
The result:  not good, and then I remembered why I should never try and force creativity . . .
it just doesn't work.

For the Diva challenge we had to trace a household item so I began by tracing a playing card.  (highly imaginative right?!)
Looking at it I thought it looked like a basket so then I decided to combine it with my challenge of tangling a flower box or baskit of bluebonnets.
Uh huh . . . this is what I ended up with.


The only cool thing about this was discovering that Charteuse and Light Aqua Prismacolor pencils look really nice together.
I will use them together from now on when I'm going for a fresh spring look.
Better luck next time,

Well this is embarrassing . . . ;o)
I just took a peek in my sketch books and found nothing new for this week! 
The weather has been nice so I've been doing other things.
I haven't even managed to do my own challenge this week.  tsk tsk!
This isn't good, I need my creative time!
I'll do my best to catch up on the challenge today
and over the weekend I'll post something new.
I hope you are having a more productive week!

Welcome to another Spring tangle challenge!
For the past few weeks my challenges have related to
things you may see during the Spring season.

Once again the challenge relates to the garden.
Today I'd like us to

tangle a flower box or
a baskit 
of bluebonnets

Sometimes I feel like I'm talking in code.  I know that some of you know exactly what I'm describing but if you are like me and haven't memorized all of the tangle names yet,  I have included links to the tangles so you will know what to draw!

I look forward to seeing your work this week and hope that you are all now done with snow and cold temperatures and are enjoying the warmth of Spring!
