I thought I'd give it another go. It finally made sense to me in this tile! (I haven't tried it again since. Don't want to test my luck!!!) S L O W I N G down for the auras worked wonders in getting a feel for the texture of Dansk.
In other news, I made a 3.5 x 3.5 inch Zentangle journal this week. (Our muggy heat wave has me staying inside.) I used some water color paper for the cover, which I "washed" with bubble wrap. Inside I used 10 sheets of multimedia paper. This was my first handmade journal, inspired, once again, by Michele Wynne's June 7 post. I really love the size. It tucks perfectly into my "Go-Tangle" wallet from zentangle.com.
Have you read the latest Zentangle blog by Julie Willand? She reminded us of our "humble beginnings". Rick, Maria and Molly followed up on the Mosaic app by posting their first tiles and inviting us to do the same. A wonderful exercise!
2/8/14, my humble beginning
And lastly, this morning I picked up my blue pen, after admiring Marguerite Samama's Delft Delights on Mosaic. As I tangled, I thought about my family. (I often do when I'm tangling.) I finished the tile, and then remembered a picture of my brother in 1948, when my family lived in Holland for two years. That picture was the finishing touch on the tile.
Thanks for stopping by, and staying until the end of my lengthy post! Have a lovely week!
