In mid-July I taught a session at CanTangle - a learning event for Certified Zentangle Teachers in Regina SK. We began a small artwork (5"x11") based on the rows of houses I often do. Some people were given cool-toned materials to work with, others had warm tones.
Such great beginnings! I asked people to share their finished work with me so I could share it with my blog readers. Prepare for a lot of wonderfulness!
Cris Letourneau used a blue wash to finish the sky. I like how the house looks as if there's bunting draped around it for some sort of celebration, and the shading under the bottom edge.
Aleesha Sattva mentioned that her moon had turned into a sun. She arrived home to discover that her paper had torn during travel. She worked with the rip and titled her art "TiMe WaRp". Enter through the door. :D
Laura Harms - of DivaCZT Weekly Zentangle Challenge fame - used her 'honor tangle' Diva Dance in the sky. And such lovely shading on the middle house, provided by the original gray wash.
Cris Titus' houses found themselves on an island. What fun! Note how she used gray pen to do Printemps in the sky. And I like her use of Leaflet for a tree -.
Debra Castaldi used Verve in one tree (gotta remember that one), with a lovely country pond behind it. Note how the crescent moon in the sky echoes the 'moons' on the lefthand rooftop.
Lynn Mead commented, "I was surprised when the sun became a tree and a walkway became a stone wall, but what really surprised me was when bubbles popped out the chimney... this was really fun." I like the border of long, thin stripes, and that's Lynn's tangle Fassettoo in the sky.
Susan Cirigliano's creation is just chock-a-block full of interesting patterns. Her Indyrella at the top left is wonderful; I have trouble with that one. What an interesting droplet-shaped window!
