Letter M


I can't believe it is the letter M already.  Half way through the alphabet and 13 weeks into the year - time flies when you are having crafting fun.


The Zentangle patterns I tried my hand at this week were on the strips MEER and on the flowers MUMSY.  As I ended up with a lot of white space on my tag I decided to add a bit more of the lovely Scattered Straw Distress Ink and used my water brush to fade it out into the centres of the shapes and also added a touch of colour on the petals of the white flowers.  I coloured my ribbon to match my tag as I did not have a ribbon in this lovely creamy shade of yellow.

Just to let you know I didn't make it through the first round of auditions for Graphic 45 but I wanted to thank you all for your good wishes.  I had a lovely time putting my audition together so whilst disappointed am not disheartened!  I still have lots of lovely papers to play with ;-)  

See you next week :-X

  1. Your tag is gorgeous, as always. Sorry you didn't get further with Graphics 45, they made a mistake not taking you! Try again, perhaps with another firm! Hugs, Valerie

  2. Wow-- very pretty tag! Too bad about Graphic 45. I'm sure a lot more goes into their decisions than we think. The best man doesn't always win!

  4. Stunning - love the colour combo, it sets the Zentangle off really well - looks fab. As I've said on your blog, I'm really surprised you didn't go though to the next round at G45 this time - but you'll get there! :o)
