- and i want to say a very extra special big heart felt thank you to everyone who donated funds last week. I continue to be amazed by the generosity of spirit of this wonderful community. HUGS!
I can't believe that it's already the tenth challenge! Where did the time go? It's been a pretty awesome ride so far, i have to say. What i had started out expecting to be only a handful of participants each week - has grown to such a wonderful community of tanglers... many who i count lucky to call my friends, after 10 weeks of reading your blogs and enjoying your pieces. So, thank you! :D
I'm also looking forward to some of you joining the ranks of CZTs after this week! I'm so jealous, you're going to have such an amazing time in Whitinsville! :)
So, this week i thought i'd make the challenge something that i have trouble with in my own work. There's a line from the Beatles song Within You Without You (click here for youtube) that goes: "We were talking about the space between us all" and all week while i was thinking about the next challenge, this line kept going over and over in my head.
when i do a Zentangle®, my tendency is to fill up every space. Then, each week as i'm rounding up each entry for the slideshow - i'm always drawn to those aspects that i wish to emulate. In this case, it's the 'space between' that i have been drawn to.
I did this one back when Artoo was in the hospital after he was born, but it took a lot for me NOT to fill up the 'loops' - as you can see, i DID actually end up putting something in the loops....
So, Challenge #10 "The Space Between" create a tile or Zentangle inspired piece being aware of the space between the tangles, leaving some white space.
This is clearly not a challenge for some - but it certainly was/is for me. I will continue to play with this one well after this week is over.
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 know how to find this, you can see my half assed tutorial here) Also, please feel free to come back often and visit the links of those people on the linkey machine - don't forget to leave a comment or feedback, everyone loves feedback. ;)
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)
The deadline for each weekly challenge is Saturday night so that i can round everyone up by Sunday. What this means is that i will stop adding tiles to the slideshow on Sunday. You're still more than welcome to do the challenges and add your name to the linkey machine.
I will be more diligent with the linkey machine - by editing out the ones that don't work, the doubles, the links that lead to nowhere, the links that go just to blog home pages (this is why we need those site specific urls), and the spam. And there is some spam. :(
