Where does the time go? Days have been vaporizing and I don't see how. The days are longer, sunnier. Hmm, that may be it right there--I'm spending more time outside enjoying the very fine weather, gardening. I planted some grapes yesterday in hopes of some fruit three years from now. I have to tend to the fruit trees I have now so I have citrus next year...
Which brings me to this: I started a new blog, a challenge to myself, and if you wish to participate, please join in the fun. I hope it's fun. I felt compelled to have a Twinchie challenge as I really like the parameters. Thus, Two by Two by Tuesday has been born. Please check it out!
Meanwhile, I've been trying to keep up with all those other things I dabble in. Here goes!
For this week's Inchie, I was all over the place. First I wanted to do a test paper with a giant A+ on it. Then, I was thinking of a fancy manicure but my nails are happily grimy from digging in the yard. THAT wasn't going to be very pretty.
And while I'm not a huge fan, it's March Madness, 24/7 college basketball, so this fits the bill for "Nail."
"Egyptian." I peeked at everyone else's responses and they were all very cool. Serendipitously, there was a news release on a new tomb unearthed at Luxor last week. I thought the images were beautiful and this flower is representative of one of the art walls. Broke out the Spectrum markers on Canson paper for this one.
I have some more Zinchies, including some new patterns I'm working on (if you know of their existence already, please advise, so I can correct them).
I found On Target by Banar on her Flickr feed. Her Zentangle art has a lot of pizazz and contrast. I created what I think is a new one that I've tentatively called "About It," as in it has an aura...about it. The last one, I don't know... There must be somebody in the Weird Wide Web that surely has something just like it already? It's hard to know, there are so many people making this kind of art!
From here I'm working on my first post for my self-proclaimed challenge. The mot du jour is: Trees. Abres. Bomen. Baume. Please check it out!
