Diva's Challenge 206
This week's challenge was really, really challenging! It was to do the challenge using a tool we would normally not use with Zentangles. So, I used a script liner brush, and a waterbrush (has water in the handle) for the solid parts. The shading was truly a challenge with the liner brush!!! The control is just NOT there... lol. Anyway, here it is:
For some reason, it is now expected that I make a card on family's birthdays. Last weekend was one of my son's birthday party (late because of all the snow we've been having). I find it really hard to make cards for men, so I try to think of things they like and go with that. Last year was a moose (that also ended up on a mug for Christmas :)), this year was his cat that is more like a puppy dog - follows him around like one :).
His name (the cat) is Vincent and I carved this stamp of his eyes a few years ago.
A New Stencil I Designed and Cut
My Dad posted a picture of an iron gate that I found really beautiful. After seeing that, I drew a repeat pattern on a piece of Tyvek (inspired by the gate, but not the same), cut it out and tried it out. I loved it, so then I cut a stencil from a transparency and tried it out on a painted journal page. I think I will have a lot more fun with it (once I find a little time :)).
