Letter Z - Phew managed to post just before the new Themes kick in!!!!!

Hello from a sunny and warm Derbyshire!  Yippeeeeee the Summer is here at last.  There is one down side to this and that is I am soooooooo late with my final tag of the Alphabet Series.  Whether I get this up before tomorrow is all down to You Tube upload times now.

I can't believe we started making our Alphabet tags in frosty temperatures and are finishing them in lovely long Summer days.  How the time flies when you are having fun and I have definitely been having that and I know you all have too

Here is my final tag and I just had to celebrate with a great big dollop of blingy sparkle as you can see!

Photos just don't do sparkle any justice at all!!!  I have really loved this challenge and I'd like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to Carolyn for the fab alphabet challenge it has really inspired some wonderful tags and tag collections.

Here is a fast forward video of how I made my tag which features the tag patterns ZEDBRA on the tag and ZIG ZAG border on the paper bow.  A big thank you also goes to for being a great library of Zentangle patterns and tutorials.

One more video of all my tags in review and if you watch it you will see a sneak peek of the next online workshop and pattern I will be putting up for sale here on my Blog and over at my ETSY shop.  I am really pleased with this great little Tag Storage Project as I now have the perfect place to keep my Zentangle Alphabet collection of tags.  They are easy to look at when I need inspiration and I can display my favourites too.  Keep your eye out for a post in the next couple of days when it goes on sale if you want to make yourself one.  I am being as quick as I can with the final edits whilst still sitting in the sun occasionally whilst it is here!!

I hope that you are enjoying great weather wherever you may be in the world.  I highly recommend a glass of Pimms filled with fruit as you put your feet up and sit in the sun - lovely!

I am looking forward to checking out everyone's tag alphabet in review and thank you so much for all your lovely comments last week.  It is great to see all the new faces and I know you are going to have lots of tag fun over the next 26 weeks!


  1. You made it! Cor, I was wondering where you were Helen and also wondering what delight you would come up with. I had a feeling you would make a paper bow - they're awesome! The shade of blue you've chosen is gorgeous, and I CAN see a little bling, but you're right, photo's don't do it justice.
    Off to watch your videos now. Have a great week - stay safe in the sun won't you. It's scorching here too - Yippee it's Summer :D Mo x

  2. Well done on sneaking in under the wire! Great tag, too! It's really hot here, three days in a row are definitely a record for this summer! Valerie

  3. You can see some sparkle-- cool! Love the big blue bow too!

  4. Well thank goodness, I thought you were on holiday and was worried we wouldn't see the last one! Great series, great finale! X

  5. Terrific tag and love the black and white theme you used

  6. Helen, I am a Zentanglist, too. I completed the entire alphabet in April but never thought about posting it. You are very, very good!

  7. I LOVE the tag storage system and can't wait to make one. Please let me know when the tutorial is up for sale.
