This week's challenge on laura's blog is to BEad INSPIRED by Beads of Courage!
Beads of Courage is an arts in medicine program that helps kids with chronic or life threatening illness tell the story of their medical journey. Each bead represents something different. A different procedure or appointment, or special circumstance. For example, when seeing a doctor or getting a poke instead of getting a sticker when they leave, they are given a glassbead for each thing. (blue for doctor, black for poke... some other beads are yellow=night in the hospital, pink=respiratory support, magenta=trip to emergent care, teal=tube insertion or removal, rainbow=therapy; physical, speech, occupational, respiratory) and every child's string is different and unique to their story.
All these beads are for Artoo and all children with this disease !
This week's challenge is a Duotangle!! If you're new here, a Duotangle is the term Laura coined on her blog to refer to a tile or piece using only two specific tangles. The two tangles proposed this week are:
Molygon and Marusa.
Marusa is an offocial tangle. You can see the step outs here.
This week we have to use an official new tangle "Waybop". You can see the step outs HERE.
I trained for a while with this tangle that is not very easy. But then when I began my tile i made a mistake. Since there is no mistake in Zentangle, I accepted this 'tangleation' and I completed my drawing with "Ruutz" a tangle created by Eni Oken .
Thank you very much for your visit and your comments.
At first it was not easy for me to use Hamadox. Finally i used Hamadox starting from a triangle. I added a touch of aquafleur, shadows and highlights. I am currently interested by shading and 3D effects.
Once the drawing is finished, it becomes difficult to find the starting Hamadox tangle.
Thank you for your comments. have a nice week end !
Three Hundred weeks ago Laura began her Zentangle Challenge after the birth of Artoo his second child with Moebius Syndrome. This week is Moebius Syndrome Awareness Day. Laura proposes us to use the Moebius Syndrome Foundation's logo as our string.
Copying this logo was difficult for me. I drew a ribbon with the tangle "Lolly Wimple" and many beads of courage for Artoo.
Happy new year ! I hope this period of festivities was very pleasant for you. I took advantage of my holidays to tangle a lot and train in the shade.
This week as the first monday of every month it's a UMT challenge that means we have to use a tangle created by one of us. This time it's Orbs-la-Dee, a tangle proposed by Anneke Van DAM. you can see the step outs here.
It's a very beautiful tangle and I had a lot of fun discovering it.
The top left Tangle is a first attempt where I was wrong. But since there is no mistake in Zentangle art it became a new pattern!
