|HOT DOGS!! a birthday party staple|
|Opening gifts! there was a Ukelele inside this one!|
Also this week, Chewie decided on his Halloween Costume! He's finally decided to be Harry Potter! But, this may have had something to do with the fact that we finished reading the third book, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, this weekend.
I've been really impressed at how much he was into this book. He (mostly) paid attention and even remembered things later on, and was trying to deduce the ending as we read it together. I'm so glad he loves this series, because it's so so good. :D
Weekly Challenge #141: DuoTangle - Fengle/Quandry
Oh man, i loves me some DuoTangles. If you're brand new and have never heard of this fancy shmancy term - a DuoTangle is a term i came up with waaaaaay back when that describes a Zentangle piece done ENTIRELY with two tangles (and their tangleations).
This week's challenge is to use ONLY the tangles Fengle, and Quandry. (Follow the links for the step-outs)
I LOVE the look of both of these tangles.
I've done mine as a zendala, using a white sakura gelly roll pen and a soapstone pencil for shading, as well as a bit of white charcoal pencil and a Fabrico marker in cool grey for shading. Also, i have to say that the new zentangle soap stone pencils blend beautifully!! like But-tah. ;)
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). I just ask that you put in the subject line: Challenge # ________
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. PLEASE do not put your *home* page in the linkey machine... please? for me??
