Wow! I guess it's been awhile since I've posted anything Zentangle related. That's because I really haven't had the time for drawing. I'd really like to get back into it, though, so when Heather suggested we try out the new Zentangle pattern, Arukas, for this week's challenge, I hopped onboard. This week I managed two creations. The first one using one circle:
The second one using multiple blacked-out circles.
I continued with the "arcs" (as opposed to spokes) further than I should have, but I sort of like the effect. I wasn't sure what to do with the shading, so I'm looking forward to seeing what others did. I was thinking of doing one more with other patterns, but maybe I'll save that for another week.
It's my turn to come up with the next challenge. How about using the word "Winter" for inspiration? We here in southern Manitoba are currently experiencing what we call a "bonspiel thaw" (warm weather in January/February when many curling bonspiels are taking place), but it's going to turn colder soon, so "winter" is appropriate, I think. The date? Next week, Jan 29, 2015, so get drawing.
Be sure to check out the other "Arukas" 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.
