Letter Q


Hi everyone.  I did think I might have trouble with the letter Q and this weeks alphabet tag.  There are not as many words that begin with Q so I thought I might have the same problems with Zentangle Patterns ........but no there were 3 Q Patterns and I have used them all on my tag this week.  QUANDARY is on the top bow, QUILTZ on the bottom and my favourite this wee (coz it was easy peasy!) was QUEEN'S CROWN which I made a frame around my tag with.

My other inspiration was of course origami paper bows!  I have made tons since I learnt how to make them last weekend!!!  I think I am just about bowed out for a while but they made a cute embellishment on my tag this week.



On the subject of tags.  I was blog hopping and found some gorgeous tags inspired by Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2013 and thanks to Theresa  I am hooked again.  If you want to pop along and see what I mean follow this link.   I am working on my catch up tags and am looking forward to playing along again on the 1st of May.  I think its official I am a tagaholic because I am also creating some online classes for some of the tags I made last year!  Gotta love a tag!  

Thank you all for your lovely comments they mean a lot to me.  Have a great week.  Looking forward to seeing all the Q tags.  Off to put the kettle on - coffee, biscuits and tags - perfect!

  10. I love this tag, Helen - and all your others! I think the idea of choosing zentangle patterns beginning with each letter of the alphabet is so cool and clever, and gives lots of scope for designing something really unusual. Keep up the good work!

  11. Carolyn - re word verification. I had awful trouble for a while with loads of anonymous spam comments but dealt with them through comment moderation and sending them all to my spam folder. No problems since! A small amount of effort that saved everyone the tedium of word verification!
