Weekly Challenge #115: "Amanda Day - or Earth Day"

I went to the Doctor's today for a test.  Little did I know I was to be there for 2 hours.  I usually take my bag with me, this time I only took my keys and wallet - the receptionist kindly gave me a piece of paper and a pen.  I decided on another ZIA for 'Amanda Day - or Earth Day ( http://iamthedivaczt.blogspot.com.au/) Here is the result - the first is the original version, I scanned and printed it and coloured the other with markers.  Thanks for your visit :)

ANZAC Day 25 April - 'Lest We Forget'

Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders "who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations" and "the contribution and suffering of all those who have served".


They shall not grow old, as we who are left grow old,
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn,
At the going down of the sun and in the morning, 
We shall remember them,
Lest We Forget

A ZIA I did back on remembrance day November 2012 revisited for ANZAC Day

Weekly Challenge #115 Earth Day

Here is my entry to this week's Challenge 'Amanda Day or Earth Day'

I had a couple of ideas and settled for this one. I used the sphere template by Margaret Bremner  (enthusiasticartist.blogspot.ca/2013/04/others-spheres.html) as all I could think of was the world globe. I wasn't sure what tangle to use for the background as I didn't want to lose the piece in the background, so did a simple aura.

To see what others' have done go here iamthedivaczt.blogspot.com.au/

Somehow when the Diva called for 'stars' I thought of 2 - 'starstruck lovers'

This one was tangled and then digitally enhanced with beams and 'space'

Adventures in Monotangles #7 - Onomato


Adventures in Monotangles #7 - Onomato

mindful-creations.blogspot.com.au/ with Roy - thanks for coming up with these weekly challenges - it surely makes me think how to make an interesting piece using only 1 tangle :)

This weeks Monotangle challenge is to use 'Onomato'. I thought Monotangles would be easy lol, no way Jose! I find them challenging as you are more confined, as you are only to use the ONE tangle. So, in order to add some further interest I digitally enhanced this one. I don't think it's cheating, is it? it is hand drawn with some colour and special effects added - anyhow I got caught up with trying various looks. I really like it and hope you do too :)

thanks for looking :)

I quite like this template - I couldn't get away from making it look floral - not many tangles used here and I actually find it a challenge to use any tangles in the Zendala Dares - thank uou for looking :)

Adventures in Monotangles with Roy over at mindful-creations.blogspot.com.au/p/monotangle-adventures...

This week was to use the pattern 'Indy-Rella'.

Well, I actually thought I was too late to post this one - it's just about the end of Thursday - I can see the link is still open :) cool!

hmmm.... not too keen on this pattern. I wanted to do something besides a flower with this tangle - it turned out to be a bit of a mosh posh - here it is.

To add some interest I added some texture via photo editor.

thanks for looking :)
