Beyond

Hey Tanglers

O my Goodness were are the weeks going.. It's the end of March already... I hope I find you all well and Tangling like crazy...



When I started this blog I wasn't sure if it was going to work but I've had some great response so I'll keep going...  this week I've been tangling heaps...

I'm not the traditional Zentangler anymore but I do use some zentangle patterns.
I'm just doing what I like which is circles and more Mandala style at the moment...
I'm working my way up to do and exhibition of my own... I have lots of work to do but am excited about it...



So today I'll share one of my favourite pieces I have called it "BEYOND"... as usual I share step by step photos.. this is a repeat but I have done this piece again Larger so I can frame it...




As you can see with this photo... The original piece is a lot small than the one I was working on
the new is 60cm x 90cm about poster size
It didn't take a lot of hours about 10 all up because of the larger scale




 
the section with the lines in it ...
I use about four different pen sizes so that you get a variety of
thickness...



 
Dotting work is quiet easy in small areas but when your working in a
larger scale you need to walk away and look at the shading from a distance
and then you can see what's needed... the circle in the centre
was quiet difficult... even now it think it needs a bit more work before I frame it..
never rush you dot work..



 
Time for the grid work for your pattern... this grid I did in a no.1 pen
keep it fine..



 
This is one of the simplest patterns you can do as a background
I use this pattern because it reminds me of stars




 
Not quiet finished but its looking great

 


 
Centre circle finally done but I still feel that I need to do a little bit more work
this circle has about 2.5hrs in it.... see take your time
you have to love the back ground as much as I do...



 
Yeah!!!! All done.
This is defiantly one of my favourite designs










So I hope you like what I have done and that it inspires you to try something...
 
Please if you decide to do the same piece of art please acknowledge me and I will share
 the photo of your work on my blog
 
 
Well happy Tangling and I'll be back soon with the next piece

First Prize

Hi Tanglers...


I hope this finds you all doing well and doing heaps of tangling....


I wan to share today with you my exciting new I won first prize in our local art competition..
at the South East Art Society Open Arts Awards..... the category I entered in is Works on Paper..
I wasn't originally going to enter but my house cleaner who is apart of the art society herself was at me for so long that I thought why not enter...
In the end I was very exciting entering into this competition because I had never done that before I knew the were prizes but that I wasn't interested in that, I just wanted the locals to see my work... but any way  as you know I won first prize in the category I entered and I won $100 cash... that will pay for a few new pens and paper...

I have a few photos to share..

finely finished the last one and it framed and ready for display




My work all wrapped up and ready to go to the competition




A close-up of the three that I had entered
