First off, I am alive. I know I’ve said repeatedly that I have 6 classes (I am attending) this semester, and subsequently, being that I will graduate in May, they have gotten increasingly difficult on the homework scale.
I have been trying to fit in some tangle time (mostly in class) and trying to keep up with at least a few challenges (mostly Diva and Square One on Facebook.)
So this week’s Diva Challenge was with guest CZT Cris Letourneau, with a Use My Tangle (UMT) for her tangle, Seton. If you haven’t checked out her book (with Sonya Yencer, CZT) called Pattern Play, I highly recommend it.
Seton is a grid pattern, that rather reminds me of a quilt, so I had a little fun with it.
And this week, on Square One, the focus was on Punzel. I have never done this one before, but I think I really like it.
One of my classes this semester is on Stress Management (I am majoring in Kinesiology) and we had to split into groups and do a review of literature and demonstrations of different techniques being used in Stress Management. My group was lucky enough to grab Art Therapy for our topic, and I was able to do a Zentangle demo with the class (interactive, of course.) I pre-string tiles for larger groups, to cut out some time (we only had 20 minutes) and found after this trial of the demo, I need to re-do one of my strings…it looks too much like boobs…but he did a really nice job on it…(sorry if this offends anyone….Tyler is an established artist already, and this was his first tile…so I was rather impressed.)
Anyway…back to homework!
