yeah, you can take the girl out of stupid........but you can't take stupid out of the girl

So, my last 2 days posts...........please note that the new Zentangle pattern is called "WELL" not Wall as I have been naming and labelling it. LOL. Thank you Margaret Bremner for enlightening me.

I wish I could blame the fact that I was working late last night on the instructions for randomising the pattern, but then I checked back and I've been using the wrong name since I posted my challenge responses. Oh, the shame. I hang my head!

So, please, if you pinned my image with the randomising/dot grid instructions - could you replace it with the new one with the correct name? pretty, pretty please? I know it's like trying to hold water in a hessian bag, but, some are better than none :)

You're stars!

  2. YOUR ART IS SO BEAUTIFUL YOU'RE DEFINITELY ALLOWED TO DEVIATE FROM A MERE NAME! JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF YOUR ABUNDANT CREATIVITY. IT'S HEARTENING TO KNOW THAT OTHERS ALSO MAKE MISTAKES. MAYBE IT WILL HELP ME TO BE MORE ACCEPTING OF SOME OF MINE. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR EFFORTS, YOUR EXCEPTIONAL DRAWINGS, AND YOUR COURAGE TO SHARE YOURSELF AND YOUR WORK.

  3. I should think it was just the ring finger & the index finger on the left hand getting themselves somewhat confused - what's a vowel between friends?

PATTERN - Faux Weave

I am getting ever closer to the finish line of my course. I have one more round of assessments to go and should be done in around 6 weeks - I cannot wait! I have enjoyed it, but am more than ready for it to be over. Thanks for hanging in there with my erratic posting over the past year or so :)

My desk, which has a myriad of buried treasure amongst the clutter  (my organisation "system" tends towards scribbling things down on scraps of paper when I get an idea then throwing them on my desk). Anyway, I had a bit of a clean up last night and it offered up this pattern ready to scan and share.

I love, love, LOVE easy patterns and how, often, from a simple construct the illusion of a more complex design can be created.

I think that "faux weave" is one such example. What could be easier than spiralling around a single line? Stack these spirals together using a square grid, alternate the direction, add some basic fill and shading and all of a sudden you have a woven effe…

String Rose PATTERN

Well, d-day has almost arrived. Tomorrow I head back to school. Where did the summer go? At least the class schedule is looking pretty light and I'll only be at school for 2- 2 1/2 days a week.

Today I want to share a really simple technique/pattern I've called "String Rose". This idea first made an appearance on the blog during the old into new challenge back in 2014. I named one of the experimentation tiles as Trentwith and though this pattern was the initial source of inspiration, my version takes a different approach. I had always meant to share the technique as it's so simple, and fun, but I just didn't get around to it. Until now! 2 1/2 years later.....haha.

O.k., here goes........

The String Rose Pattern - this shows the base technique.


As it's all done in one continuous line, I thought a little insta-video might help out:

Puffy 8's PATTERN

O.k., wow. Another year done and dusted! Can you believe it's 2017? Me? I'm still reeling.

So, where did 2016 go? I had so much that I wanted to get done here on the website, but, life takes some interesting turns and my return to full-time study in 2016 though not planned, was so interesting - I loved it!

Since term ended for our long summer break, I've been periodically working on tidying up my files and found some unpublished patterns that I hadn't got around to posting. I'll put them up over the next few weeks.

Today I'm sharing a pattern called Puffy 8's - it's another spin off of 2/8's (love that base pattern!)

You could stop at step 5 above, or keep going to fill all the spaces.
And, what's life without a bit of freeforming?
Wishing everyone a happy, productive 2017!
