On the Border

laurasartaward2.2013

Here I am in front of my two ZIAS (over my head in black frames) at The Small Works Show in Greenville, SC. I won the Merit Award for my work, $75.00!  I am going to work harder and a bit larger for next year, as placing artwork got $200, $400 & $600 prizes!  The pieces that won were “Fish Out of Water” that I actually did as a Diva Challenge 123, and the other I called “The Beach”. (You will need to scroll down after clicking to see them).

It has been quite a while since I participated in the Diva’s  weekly challenge (IamtheDivaCZT.blogspot.com)… seems it has been since my wonderful cat, Sam, died.  I also got involved in textile pattern and surface design online classes ( SkillShare.com), and had to learn how to work with Illustrator and other digital art software. I was finally able to create patterns that I could upload to SpoonFlower.com, a great place to upload and buy/sell your own fabric designs. I do love patterns!

Also, I am going to the June 22 CZT training session in Providence, RI next year! I am soooo excited! Yay oh Yay! If any of you are going to be there too, let me know! To learn more about this, please visit Zentangle.com.

Here is my Zentangle based on a border that I found in my surroundings. I have these really cool beaded coasters, and I used the border of those coasters in my tile. The coasters have little jingle bells attached to the outer edge, and I noticed they kinda look like “Poke Root.” I love Jane MacKugler’s “Henna Drum” tangle, and have incorporated that into my tile. I also used “Sparkool” by Lara Williams to fit inside the curved border.  As usual, I added my own embellishments on the edges, and I added auras here and there.

    Your frame just grew and grew with all the fun things you added. Very nice.
