Challenge 210

This weeks challenge was:

Weekly Challenge #210: "Spiralstring - that's the thing!"

This week's challenge is to use a spiral as your string... I like to come back to a simple spiral string because frankly i find them to be challenging because they don't really close off anywhere.  PLUS they always look so cool.

So I played around a bit with making it look like a weave. Messed that one up and I keep coming back to the pattern "Coil". I hadn't tried drawing it yet so I decided to give it a try and was very happy with the result. I have had a hard time leaving it this way. I think it needs something in the background but at the same time I like the simplicity of it too. :)

One question for you how do you keep your pencil shading from smearing after you are finished. I heard one time to spray with hairspray but was just wondering what you do to set your drawing.

Calendar Update :)

So I missed posting the last two weeks calendar drawings. Oops. :)

The first one I messed up on so I played with some shading. Not even a tangle was just playing. ;)

Challenge #208

Well here is my weekly challenge entry. I cant seem to get the right effect  want but I will stop before I mess it up :).

Weekly Challenge #208: "Duotangle - Cubine vs Pokeroot"

I just love me some duotangle.

A duotangle is a term that originated here on my blog - and it means to use ONLY TWO tangles and their tanglations throughout your tile. 

For this week's challenge please use only Cubine and Pokeroot and their variations. (follow the links for the step outs)

I wanted it to kinda look like a planter or discarded tube with weeds growing out of it. :) I wish before i put black on end i would have drawn some coming out end. Of well. may redo it :)

Thanks for looking,

Playing around and Calendars

So I decided to start playing with my calendar every day and tangling it. :) So everyday I tangle that day on the week and the month part of my calendar. I thought this would give me some practice plus a quick reference book when im done. ;) So here is week one for each one. On the weekly one if i use a tangle from someone I place the name of it next to it so i can remember what it is. :)

This tile I did while watching NASCAR on Sunday. :)

Thanks for looking. Have a great week.

Weekly Challenge #207: "UMT - Unbatz by Sandy Hunter, CZT"

You can see the step outs for Unbatz on Sandy's blog here

So here is my entry:

It has been so weird with our weather here the last week. We had freezing fog and no wind which made this phenom available to happen. It was so cool looking.
