That's pretty much par for the course for Christmas, don't you think?
Well, it's Monday morning, so that means it's time for the second Weekly Challenge! If you're just joining us, you can see the list of previous challenges here! The slideshow for the challenge can be seen here. If you entered your name on the linkey list but don't see your tile - it's because the URL did not direct me to your tile, or i couldn't find your entry. (sorry!!)
I was so excited to check the blog every day to see who was joining us, and i have to say that it was a fabulous turn out! It was great for me to discover other wonderful blogs!
As some of you know, i have a wonderful CZT partner in crime here in Saskatoon named Margaret Bremner. Her art is so beautiful! Anyway, last week she posted on her blog the idea of using two attached pencils to create the string!
How many of us saw that post and went: "Ah HA!!"??
so, of course, this week's challenge is to create a Zentangle® tile or inspired piece using the two-pencil-string technique! (thanks to those who emailed me saying "let's do that next!" i couldn't have agreed more!)
So here's how i started mine, with a two pencil string:

It was definitely fun and i'll be doing that more in my future tiles!
I used the tangle "Puf" in the bottom right corner, created by Carole Ohl and in the bottom left corner i used "Gingham" created by Margaret Bremner, and striped bit of the 'ribbon' is called "Zedbra" - it was created by Margaret, but named by me... it's a little inside joke. Margaret and I are both Canadian and in Canada "Z"s are pronounced zed not zee... So, we aren't CZeeT's, we're CZedT's. ;) (Margaret hasn't posted instructions to Zedbra yet!)
Hey, does anyone know if there is a name to the tangle in the top right corner of my tile? if it's not named, i'm going to give it one. ;) i saw it on the floor of the castle in the last Shrek Movie and i HAD to draw it!
If you have a blog, add the site-specific URL where your tile is posted to the linkey machine below! Don't forget to link back here so that others can join in the fun!
If you don't have a blog but still want to participate, you can email your tile to me and i will post it here. (See the contact tab above for my email address)
So sally forth good tanglers and double string thy tiles! if you need some inspiration, be sure to check out Margaret's Post to see her gorgeousness!
