Tag H and final catch up Tag D!!!!


Hi fellow taggers.  I hope you have all had a fun week.  I am looking forward to seeing all your lovely tags again this week.  It is a lovely way to spend a coffee break don't you think!?

I can't believe it is Tuesday again already!  How time flies.  I think it is an age thing. ;-)  Here are my tags for this week and finally I am all caught up!  

My D 'catch up' tag is all bejewelled and one side of the tag as black pen on white card and on the other side has white pen on black.  This was quite fun to try and makes you think a bit more about what you can do with your Zentangle patterns.  The patterns for this tag are from the top - Demi, Daggerly, DL Sunray and Drip Drop.




My H tag was entirely worked on Black and it looks very striking on the red background.  The patterns are on the left - Hypnotic, the ribbon is Half Onions and on the right of the tag is Hibred.  Some of the pattern names are fab - Who knew Half Onions wouldn't make you cry!!!


As I promised last week this is the back of all my tags so far.  I am making a lovely Distress Ink Rainbow as you can see and I have recorded all the pattern names I have tried so far so that I can use them again one day.  I have a plan to display my tags but I am keeping that under wraps for the final week of this fun Tag Alphabet.  

Carolyn asked last week how long my tags take and I couldn't work out how to reply on this blog (it doesn't seem to allow it here like it does on my blog - unless I am missing something - which wouldn't surprise me at all!!!) My tags are taking me between 1 and 2 hours depending on how easily I master the patterns I am using , how many mistakes I make and how fiddly the finishing touches are.  

Oooo mustn't forget this link - If you like Zentangling or want to try it then this is the place to start - a great reference of patterns with full tutorials.

Thank you for all your lovely comments.  They always put a smile on my face ;-)

See you next week
