Zinger Challenge

This weeks diva challenge - Zinger. Cute name! Love that it's all curly and organic and so cute!!!

This is a pattern I used a few times in some of my earlier drawings as a filler - they're in the gallery if you're interested. I had kind of forgotten about it, so it was exciting to revisit and try to make it more of a focal point.

Some of the stuff I came up with:

Zinger Daisy: this is my favourite. The Zinger lines are curved in the wrong direction, but I love how it works as a centre for the daisy.


Zinger Gumflower: I haven't drawn a gumflower for a while, and I do love drawing super-sized ones! Unfortunately I sketched this right near the spine on my journal - so the top edge didn't scan correctly, it's cropped and a little dark at the top, but I like the drama of it, anyway. Zingers make perfect little pollen "dots".


Mooka & Daisies: Used in the daisy centres, again, but these ones are going in the right direction. Cute in either direction!



A few fun ones...........supersized - all zinger, all the time.


Some shapes zinger reminded me of:


I definitely have Christmas on my mind, I've been harassing my kids for their Christmas wish lists!! I really want my shopping over and done by December 1 this year.

  12. As usual, impressed with your style and creativity. Each is and great and so unique that cannot really pick one that I like the best. Am amazed with what your mind comes up with. BTW, used Twirl on a ceramic tile that am using as a coaster. Looks really great. Isn't posted but may do it later.

  17. Wow, I would be hard-pressed to pick a favorite, although I learn toward the large single zinger. Every tile is executed so beautifully. All of your tiles are lovely. Beautiful, creative.
