Tangled Thursday - Sun

Tangled Thursday is a new occasional post on this blog. Heather at Books and Quilts is hosting these challenges in which we share our latest Zentangle inspired creations.

This week Heather challenged us to create works using a Sun.

Here's mine:
This is my second creation.  My first one was very similar, but about half way through, I made a major mistake and I couldn't figure out how to recover from it.  I actually tried to work with the mistake and was somewhat successful, however, 10 minutes later I botched it up even more.  *sigh*  So, I started again.  This isn't exactly what I had in mind when I started, but it's okay.   

This is such an appropriate challenge as we are once again being hit with a blast of winter. While yesterday was +3C, it didn't feel like that because of the wind and snow. Overnight, it was supposed to be gusting to 110km/hr. Hold on, Dorothy! With the 5cm of snow we got yesterday, today have major highways closed (TransCanada across most of the province, and parts of two major highways into the US) and wind chills around -30C. Enough with winter already! Bring on spring and sunshine.

Be sure to check out the other "Sun" creations on Books and Quilts.   If you'd like to join us, please do so by linking your post to the Mr. Linky on Heather's post.

  1. Beautiful! I love the idea of using the color behind the sun rather then coloring the actual sun. Very creative. Some of my attempts were so colorful they were almost blinding. This is much better.


Thanks so much for your comment. I really appreciate it. Unfortunately, I've been getting lots of spam comments, so I'm turning on word verification to help keep spammers away. I know it's a pain; I don't like it either. Hopefully, in time I'll be able to turn it off again. Thank you!
