Gorgeous artwork that will make your creative fingers itch to make more.

I have a recommendation for you. If you have access to Netflix and you’d like to see a different Santa movie, watch Klaus.

A dozen neat things to enjoy this weekend.

Intober Day 22

Standard

I am participating in two challenges this month, OctPoWriMo and Inktober. To make it easier on myself, I’m trying to write a new poem on odd-numbered days and make a drawing on even-numbered days.

I’m following the Inktober prompts that my Facebook Zentangle group, Tangle All Around, is using, but I didn’t care for today’s, so I’m using yesterday’s. Perlz was designed by Maria V. Copetas:

To me, each two-pearl unit looks like a smiling mother and child.

I found this pattern surprisingly challenging, and I’m not satisfied with how it turned out. My lower pearls are tear-shaped instead of round, and I could not figure out how to improve that. I guess you just have to put in the practice–draw 10,000 of them, and they begin to look good.

I really appreciate these challenges. They motivate me to try something new.

Inktober Day 19

I am participating in two challenges this month, OctPoWriMo and Inktober. To make it easier on myself, I’m trying to write a new poem on odd-numbered days and make a drawing on even-numbered days.

My poetry brain is not working today, so I opted to work on Zentangle instead. I’m following the Inktober prompts that my Facebook Zentangle group, Tangle All Around, is using. This is Singapore Sling:

Zentangle, Singapore Sling

This is my first time making this pattern. The hardest part of the design is drawing the flower outline. I couldn’t make it symmetrical. I love the way the center of this design turns out. (But don’t look too closely, ’cause I made a mistake.)

Inktober Day 18

I am participating in two challenges this month, OctPoWriMo and Inktober. To make it easier on myself, I’m trying to write a new poem on odd-numbered days and make a drawing on even-numbered days.

Since I miss doing Zentangle,  I decided to follow the Inktober prompts that my Facebook Zentangle group, Tangle All Around, is using. Today’s design is called box spiral; it was created by Margaret Bremner:
