Since we’re havingÂ a lotÂ of people coming over for Christmas, with some people meeting for the first time, I thought it would be easier on everyone if I made name tags, so I made a background for the name tags.
IÂ poppedÂ a new sketchbook yesterday, so I only had time to make Laura Harms’ weekly challenge today. It’s a Deko Sketchbook with 140g/mÂ² paper from HahnemÃ¼hle Fineart in natural white. It’s heavier and stiffer than my last sketchbook, so the feel is definitely different. It takes ink well, though it’s really supposed to be for pencil and charcoal.
madebyjoeyÂ has a weekly Zentangle challenge up too, so I decided to try it. This week’s challengeÂ is to highlight the “string” used in the Zentangle.
I developed a tangle using theÂ Arabic symbol for six. Some of the Zentangle community that takes part of the Weekly Diva Challenge kept calling it a “raincoat”.
I enjoy the feedback I’m getting and decided to share the instructions for making Raincoat 6.
