Bi-zen-tennial

It is The Diva's 200th Challenge! Way to go, Laura, and thank you for gathering so many creative people together. You da bomb!

This week, we are challenged to create a tile, with no borders, using only our favorite pattern (mine is Flux) and put the number 200 in there, somewhere. I have always loved the pattern flux. It was the subject of one of my first Diva challenges, in the summer last year, and I include it in nearly all of my zentangle art.

So, here is my tile for the Bi-zen-tennial of the Diva Weekly Challenge:

 Flux makes everything nice.
I made the string wind all over the tile, then fluxed along it, on both sides. Shading in the center, and I made my 200 red, with some tipple here and there in red.

If only my picture quality were better. Some time this year, I'll be getting a new laptop, and it will have software for editing photos.

  2. I love your flux. It's such a flowing pattern and you've continued the flow of the pattern in your string. The red highlights make it pop. Nice job!

  12. I really love this tile. BTW, if you want an image editor now you can get either Gimp or Paint.net for free (both are open source).

    1. thank you! I was thinking of the google photo album source but can't remember what it's called. Right now, I"m using my boyfriend's laptop, a real dinosaur, so we don't download anything,. HOWEVER....getting a new device (possibly a tablet, maybe a kindle? or another laptop possibly) is very close to the top of my priority list this year.
