Ornation Creation #36 – Ornate Cross

I’ve been working on this all week! It seems to have taken an awfully long time! :o)

Choosing tangles to fit the spaces was quite a challenge. I managed to resist my urge to fill in every space and left some sections white.

I particularly like the keeko near the middle :o)

Ornation Creation #35 – Zebra

Posted on by 0 comment

There’s a Facebook group called Ornation Creation where a wonderful guy named Ben Kwok shares a template each Monday.  These templates are beautiful even before people fill them! :o)  I’ve only just found this group, hence starting on 35, but I suspect I will be going back through the previous templates as they’re awesome! :o)

Here’s my zebra using this weeks template :o)

It was quite a challenge working on something so large, and choosing patterns which I thought would work. In the end I went for a zig-zaggy zebra :o)

As perhaps expected the Tackle it Tuesday challenge this week is to use tangles which begin with B :o)

I always love an excuse to draw blooming butter and betweed which I’ve combined with beadlines and barber pole :o)

Zendala Dare #93

The diva challenge this week led me to Erin Olson’s blog to find out how to draw Charlie which led me to discover the Zendala Dare weekly challenge! :o)

Erin provides a template to doodle in a Zendala (round) style :o) This is my first attempt at a Zendala! :o)

It was quite a challenge deciding on the patterns. I particularly like the Knot Rickz and the Betweed center :o)

Diva Challenge #157

As it’s the first Monday of the month the diva challenge this week is a UMT with Charlie by Erin Olson.

I decided to go a bit Charlie extreme and created a very spiky design! :o)

Tackle it Tuesday #1

Cheryl over on Artful Creations posted a challenge yesterday, one I hope will become regular :o) This week the Tackle it Tuesday challenge was to create a picture using only tangles which start with ‘a’ :o)

I’ve used Asian Fans, Archer, Arundel, Arrowcheck, Amoeba and Arckles :o)

All but the last are already in the app and I think I’ll need to add Arckles as it’s very pretty :o)

Diva Challenge #156

This week the Diva Challenge is “Curvy Gridlock” – drawing grid based patterns on curved grids! :o)

My grids are often a bit wonky so I tried to be even more curvy than usual :o)

I think I’ll be drawing nzeppel with extra curvy grids more often – I really like the effect :o)

Diva Challenge #155

This week the challenge was a real challenge for me… “A little white space

20140218-151150.jpg

I’ll be honest, it feels like I haven’t finished yet… But I’m not sure what else to do without losing the white space completely! It’s a bit weird :o)

Maybe I’ll have to try some more to get the hang of this “white space” thing! :o)

Diva Challenge #154

This week the diva’s challenge was to create a Valentangle – what a lovely word :o)

20140212-000328.jpg

I really like how this one came out :o) I started by drawing the ever growing hearts and then filled in each section with a different pattern :o)

I realised I have some other heart related doodles I’ve not posted before so here’s two more! :o)

That last one was my first large drawing outside of the book I started learning from! :o)
