Weekly Challenge #294: Reticula/Fragment Beginning

"Reticula and Fragments" is the theme of this new challenge. Rick and Maria introduced these two terms in their new book Zentangle Primer Volume 1.

Laura in her blog explains it like that :
"Reticula is the term for a grid, but not just the square grid like the checkerboard, but an encompassing term for all the zentangle grids. ... So with Reticula being the term for grids, fragments, then, are the pattern drawn inside each square or facet of the grid. "

I have not yet read this book but it made me want to buy it. I'm waiting for it.

Here is a quite complicated grid that I discovered on a ceramic :

the fragment i used:

and the final work:

Thank you very much for your comment. Have a good week!

Weekly Challenge #293: "Keeko, you know!"

This week, Challenge is to use the tangle "Keeko". Laura on her blog drew a monotangle but It was not compulsory. I preferred to integrate this motif in a more diversified design. I'm not very dexterous for this tangle even if it seems simple.

I wanted to draw curves! 
J'avais envie de faire des courbes !

Have a good week !

Weekly Challenge #292: "UMT - EAXY by Nadine Roller, CZT

The first Monday of every month is a Use My Tangle Challenge, where the challenge of the week is to use a tangle created by one of us! This week's Tangle is courtesy of Nadine Roller, a CZT from Germany.
It's EAXY tangle that You can find the step outs here.

It was for me  difficult to draw because it was so very geometric! There are two tests with colors in the first tile and with double border in the second. 
Fill with colors completely changed the appearence of this tangle.

On the second tile I used it a lot with a single row, it was much easier!

Have a great weekend !

Weekly Challenge #291: "Happy Halloween!"

This week's challenge is to create a Halloween themed tile. "If that's not something we take part in or we're into, we can also do a white on black tile" specify Laura on her Diva's Blog.

I chose to draw on a black background, but I have difficulty with white gel pens. Gel does not apply easily and pens dry up very quickly. For shading I used a white color pencil.

J'ai choisi de dessiner sur un fond noir, mais j'ai des difficultés avec les crayons de gel blanc. Ce gel ne s'applique pas facilement et les crayons s’assèchent très rapidement. Pour faire les ombres j'ai utilisé un crayon de couleur blanc.

This pumpkin is ready for Cinderella's carriage !
Cette citrouille est prête pour le carrosse de Cendrillon !

Have a great week!

Bonne année 2018
