Weekly Challenge #197: "New Official Tangle - Arukas"

Hi Everyone! It's great to see Laura back and that Artoo is recovering slowly.

I'm going to make this a quick post as it's after midnight and I'm getting tired (so hard to wake up these days - life is busy busy and I find myself juggling with too many pots on the boil.

This week, the challenge is to use Arukas, the latest pattern by Molly Hollibough - I saw it about a week ago and its one I wanted to try out.  Well, tonight was the night.

I went ahead and did 2 tiles - oh and I tangled a small star during my lunch break today.

The first piece is very angular and rigid - the second tile is more freeform.

This week I was asked if I wouldn't mind if my newest pattern 'Violeta' could be the focus of this week's challenge with the Wacky Zentangle Weekly Challenges Facebook Group - I'm excited (Of course I said yes :) )

New Pattern - Violeta

 Hello - it's been quite a while since I've posted on my Blog - I've been so busy with the lead up to our Family Reunion and have not quite got myself organised and back to my before reunion days hehe.

Yay! it's Friday and I actually have some spare time before heading off to work, so I'm taking the liberty to share with you my latest pattern called 'Violeta' - named after my daughter-in-law (we call her Vicki).  I was making a birthday card for her and was going to use the pattern 'Blooming Butter', however something else happened after placing the first few dots!

I love it! it's fairly easy and anything goes with it.  It doesn't have to be precise and the lines can be as random as you like - add fill and embellishments as you see fit.

I've also drawn a variation where the lines meet - they look like a bunch of flowers.  The pattern may also be drawn on a grid - it looks quite funky like that - I will post a ZIA showing 'Violeta' on a grid later on. 

I do hope you find some time in your busy lives to try it out.

Thank you all for visiting me.

Here is the card which started it all.  'Violeta' is the pattern on the top of the card.

2 tiles and a ZIA - there is much to explore!

'Violeta Pears' as an add on - this tile for this week's 'Violeta' challenge with the Wacky Zentangle Weekly Challenges Facebook Group :)
