This week’s challenge is a guest post by Paula Bramante , CZT. She suggested we use ceremonial stones as inspiration for our tiles. I thought about the stacked ceremonial stones I saw in Ireland that have been standing for thousands of years, each stone carefully balanced. Balance is important in life too! On the stones in my tile I’ve noted some of the things that help to keep my life in balance.
This week’s challenge by CZT Sharla Hicks is to use undulating tangles. My tile is last minute, but better late than never. I chose to use one of my favorite tangles, Fengle in my first tile, along with Tipple, Flux, and a Scallop variation. I love Fengle’s S curves, and I kept repeating them until they filled up the space. The second tile used the lazy curve of a C in Tina Hunziker’s tangle Niuroda in the lower right, along with Chris Titus’ CanT, and a variation of Cari Camara’s Neat. The Zentangle Afterglo is in the top left.
This week’s blogger filling in for Laura is CZT Sandy Hunter. Sandy challenged us to leave negative space in our tile rather than filling in the whole space. I used Flux with some tiny black pearls. I have to admit, it was hard to keep my Flux in check. I wanted to keep adding to it. As it’s often said, less is more!
