The Letter E and A!


Hi everyone!  This is my first Tag Tuesday post this year.  As more and more of my time is spent on my new business I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to take part this year.  I didn't want to give up but I knew I couldn't spend the time I did last year having fun with all the 3D tags I made.  Then thanks to some inspiration provided by fellow tag team mate Arnold (sounds like we wrestle!!) when I visited his blog and saw a lovely zentangle card he had made I knew what I wanted to do for the Alphabet theme.  I am late out of the starting blocks I know but here is my E tag and my catch up A tag!

Zentangle Pattern Alphabet Tags
I am going to work on a Zentangle Pattern Alphabet!  I am fairly new to Zentangling and I do enjoy the relaxation of it.  I need more practice and I need to know more patterns and so each of my tags will feature patterns beginning with the letter of the week and I will catalogue them on the back so I can find them again if I want to use them on a project.  I am also going to use my Distress Inks to create a rainbow effect when all my tags are gathered together.

I am not sure how I am going to display them yet but I was thinking a carousel or hanging rack so I can leaf through them easily.

I was going to have a coffee and go and see what you have all been up to this week but I have to go mop up a plumbing leak first!!!!  As I was typing this there was a strange banging noise and water is coming through the ceiling in the Downstairs loo.  A radiator has rusted through in the bathroom upstairs and has sprung a leak everywhere :-(  Can you believe it???? It would happen just as the weather has turned icy again????  Deep breath - good job I did all that zentangling and I am calm, I am calm, I am calmish........I am fed up that my coffee is going to get cold and me too if we don't get the heating back on soon!!!!!  I'll be back as soon as everything is ship shape!

  11. I am thrilled that your were inspired to participate, Helen, because your Zentangle tags are AMAZING! They will also be a marvelous way for you to learn new patterns and keep a record of them. I would suggest you use a binder ring, which you can find in office supply stores, so that you can flip through your tags easily. That's what I'm doing with my Anel series. Blessings!

  12. Hope your water leak has been fixed
    now. We have a blocked downstairs toilet due to the mains pipe out in the main road being completely blocked up. The council were supposed to be coming out yesterday to clear the pipe work but still waiting. Good job we have two loos.
    Love your Zentangle tags. The orange one is my favourite so far.
    Hugs Mrs A.
