What a wonderful way to look at life - you start with the basics, but the outcome can completely change just by your choice of how you arrange the pieces. I see it every day where I live in my community of "peers of a certain age"... Some people live to the fullest, and are bursting with joy and a sense of fun. Others, no matter what opportunities, diversions, beautiful surroundings and the fact that they are likely financially privileged, always greet each day with grumbles, frowns, sad tales, and a love of their own misery. What a life!
In my case, I had been working on Rain for Square One, and I think my boxes got rained on...but I'll take the result and know the outcome is warped fun!
For That's New To Me, I am, as usual, a week behind - uh-oh! For Week #21, the theme was "R" and Helen Williams. I used the tangles Rosewood, a simplified version of Rhipidate and Helen Williams' Steps. Those steps remind me of the staircase in "The Name of the Rose". Great movie!
For Week #22, the focus was letter "A" and artist Margaret Bremner. I must say, Suzy, you do know how to pick the best of the best! Helen and Margaret are two of my Zentangle Idols. Hey, we need a new acronym -"ZI"! Do I get extra credit for making that up? Haha.
At any rate, I used tangles ABC, Abakus, and Margaret's Zedbra. I attempted (with mixed success) to use Margaret's technique of swapping light and dark at the string line. Well...it kinda works!
