It was a crazy whirlwind trip to Vancouver for Artoo's appointments. It was a good trip, and Artoo is (thankfully) a great flier.
|Happy as a clam, as long as he had chocolate milk and his dada.|
When we got back from Vancouver, we were met with THIS.... snow. Winter is finally here in The Skatch. Chewie is happy to finally be able to play Hoth Base outside.
But one of the best things about winter is....
MMmmmm Hot Chocolate. Or as we call it in our house: Hoth Chocolate.
Like my mug? it's a Quandry!
Weekly Challenge #144: A Bug's Life
Last week i got a really interesting email from the Marketing Assistant of Sakura America. (Sakura is the brand of choice for Certified Zentangle Teachers). Samantha Taylor, CZT, has been working with Sakura on a really adorable video being released today! SO!
Together, with Samantha Taylor, and Sakura America, we are debuting the video here on my blog! HUZZAH!!
Wasn't that just adorable?
Today's challenge is to take inspiration from the video!
Use colour to bring a Zentangle tile to life!
Camouflage a bug somewhere in the tile. (i.e. a drawing of a bug, a bug-shaped tangle pattern, etc.) Create a tile inspired by nature!
Shade your tile using some colour!
here's mine! (I used one of Tam Laporte's Whimsey stencils, Butterfly Wings!)
Oh! and for more fun, Sakura is giving away two fun packages!
1. Gelly Roll® Metallic™ 10 pack set
2. Gelly Roll Stardust® 6 pack set
3. Gelly Roll Stardust® clear 2pk
3. Gelly Roll Stardust® clear 2pk
Unfortunately, these prize packs are only available for US or Canadian residents.
to enter please create a tile inspired by the video and tell me which number you are in the linkey list!
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??
