Laura, at I am the Diva, gave us a beautifully elegant example of this week's challenge - on a theme of 'The New Year' or '2014'. I had already done a welcome banner for 2014 which was almost literally full of New Year 'spirit' - I drew it after drinking plenty champagne! And my husband kept on topping up my glass as I tried (and failed) to draw 'Bales' behind the word 'Year'!! However, as it's Zentangle and any deviation from the expected is an opportunity, I just carried on regardless. It's cheerful and makes me smile when I open my blog.
My entry to the challenge this week puts the 'Footlite' on 2014 as the 'Crescent Moon' curtain rises and the tangled curtain pattern (whose name I couldn't locate... ) pulls back to reveal a 'quietly confident' year. ( I hope!) Not quite Zentangle but I couldn't put the idea away once I'd had it. On my copy, the Footlites are shining silvery which is caught up in accents on the numbers but my scanner doesn't pick that up. And whilst I don't usually 'do' colour, I decided the new year was a good time to give it a go. Promise I'll practice for future posts!
Happy New Year - hope it's tangling well for you so far.
