Happy Victoria Day!
In Canada, today is a statutory holiday to celebrate Queen Victoria's Birthday.
Thanks to modern day technology I have pre-scheduled your challenge today.
 
We are up to the Roman Numeral XIV
which creates this cool (but busy) string.


Due to the number of spaces in this string I have selected basic tangles so when combined they're not too overwhelming to the eye.

Remember too that strings can disappear when tangles overlap or intertwine with each other.

This week I have chosen the following tangles:
Papyrus
Cheesecloth

The Papyrus and Cheesecloth tangles are found in the Zen Mandalas book so I could not find an internet site to link to, so I have drawn samples below if you are unfamiliar with them.
Cheesecloth is one of my favourite tangles!

Have a fantastic week!

Welcome back to the Roman Numeral String challenge!

I have drawn a string for XIII that is a little different.
We had a high five, I guess this is a low 13?!?

So this creates a big blank space on the top
for you to fill with some of the tangles I have chosen.  
Use as many or few as you like.


It may create some strange unique and creative
effects using all of the tangles that I have chosen together.
Have fun experimenting!

tangle challenges: joey #112, diva #276

Challenges for the week:

joey's weekly tangle challenge #112
I just realized that one row of Knightsbridge is Barber Pole!  Oops!
It was too narrow for a second row of squares!

Diva challenge #276

I started this challenge with the intention of drawing as little Poke root as possible because it's not a tangle that I really enjoy drawing, but it ended up "blossoming" into little bouquets.  I do like the pop of colour though!

Hope you are having an awesome week!

 Another week, another tangle challenge!

This week's XII String has a bit of a curve
that creates 8 spaces for tangles.


But this challenge is a Monotangle!
(gasp!) 

So, if I may suggest, you might like to take a quick trip over to
because she has several variations for the tangle
that I have chosen for this challenge:


I hope this stretches your imagination,
I can't wait to see your finished challenges!

challenge catch up #110 and #111

I find this time of year is always busy with extra curricular activities, school events and gardening, which I enjoy, but unfortunately dips into my drawing time.
This year I am also working part time so I'm afraid that I'm a little more behind than usual.
So once again I apologize for not commenting on each of your challenges.
I look forward to the moments when I can sneak a peak
 at the beautiful artwork that you have submitted.
I love how individual you all are and I enjoy reading your blog posts describing how you felt about the challenge.  I also love how you all support one another with encouraging comments!

Today I am submitting my challenges #110 and #111:

 There is an X in there somewhere!
I was feeling in a mandala mood so I thought I would use a round border.

And this string somehow lost it's wavy edge.  I didn't plan for it to take on this shape, but I just went with it.
  
It's funny because since I did this challenge, I have noticed the pattern Vache1 on so many things (in real life) lately!  The latest was on a giraffe. (not a real one!)

You may have noticed that my sketchbook is sitting on this Ikea polka dot lap desk, which I recently scored at a thrift store.  When it's not buried under my son's comic book drawings, I have found it to be pretty handy for drawing on the couch!

And finally
Happy Mother's Day to all of the Mom's out there!
Wishing you a wonderful weekend and may your kids spoil you with new drawing supplies! ;o)
See you Monday with the XII challenge!
