Let's Try This Again

Yes, the world's lousiest blogger is going to try again. There's been a lot of startitis recently and some finishes (mostly Sinkmates dishcloths because I am head over heels in love with knitting them).

And of course, there's been some of this ;)

Doodling Again

I'm back to my doodling and zentangles again. I came up with a doodle I really like. I won't dare to say it is original because ther are so many doodle patterns out there- it's hard not to be at least derivative. This is my first attempt at blogging using BlogPress do I'm hoping these pics will post properly.

Doing the 3.5 X 3.5 inch tiles is killing my eyesight so I got out my 8.5 x 11 card stock to use for tangling and Oh, what a relief! Now I can enjoy tangling for longer periods of time-I was going cross-eyed on those little tiles.  Here's this week's challenge from

I took a few liberties with this week's challenge. The duo-tangle challenge was to use Molly's Munchkin and Cinquital only.  I gave Cinquital a bit more symmetry because, well, because I like symmetry. Inside the circles I drew polygons (pentagons and hexagons to be exact) and then oriented the curved spikey thingies around them. I love the pen I used for these. I made a trip to the Hobby Lobby and bought a disgraceful number of pens to try out and spent an equally disgraceful amount of money. This particular pen was cheap though ($1.99) and it makes the finest line I've ever seen. It's manufactured by Kuretake and is called a ZIG Memory Systems Millenium MS-01. It's great for drawing the lines but I had to get out a broader pen for the solid black. I'd be coloring in the black til next year if I tried it with the Kuretake pen.

Weekly Challenge #59 Mardi Gras

I tried to include as many Mardi Gras elements as I could think of...there's the mask, a jester hat, a crown, piano keys and music, beads and a very poor representation of a fleur-de-lis...but I am generally pleased with this effort. The orignal string was a stylized "N" and "O" for New Orleans. This was so much fun!
