TriBee by Beate Winkler is SO much fun to play with! It has a very leafy look that can be a border or a swag, or fill up a space.
I played with it a bit, and my random doodle play time turned into my entry for the challenge.
Dicso, which looks just like poinsettia when you bundle it, so because TriBee was looking like Christmas, I tucked in several posies of Dicso.
Behind everything, I drew a highly simplified flord to ground things. I will be using TriBee and Dicso for Christmas cards this year. Fun!
Now, I also wanted to show off a piece I like a lot. Recently I colored a bunch of tiles with my Derwent water color pencils, and some of them look so flowery, I did them up with varieties of petals and centers
|This is my favorite.|
This is another colored tile I made when hamail was on my mind:
A cool color palette, blue and green. Hamail at the center, and my own concert radiating out. I really like this one, and have it on the wall of my cubicle at work.
And last but not least, some play time after I got Helen Williams' e-book "Three Simple Rules"...talk about relaxing!
THE VALUE OF ZENTANGLE
Something I thought of today, when I saw on FB a friend who was announcing NaNoWriMo
(National Novel Writing Month)
NaNoWriMo is the idea that you can rattle off a 50,000 word novella in one month (November). I gave it a go several years ago, but got stumped by my inner critic, and didn't finish.
However, with zentangle every day, I've given up the old perfectionism, and have seen my creativity increase dramatically. I'm much more accepting of my own work, and not nearly as worried about making a mistake as I have always been.
I wonder how that will bear, if I go for NaNoWriMo again this year. Will I be able to forge past the inner critic and keep writing even if it isn't perfect? It would be fun to find out, I think.
