My personal Waybop

Because on Monday it was 'family day' in Canada (and '-not my- president day' in USA), the challenge is a day later then it normally is.
Still very special and appriciated, because Laura had both children ill this weekend! Hope they will be totally better soon.

As we probably all expected, this week's theme is the new tangle from HQ: Waybop. I had been trying this tangle a few days earlier and found it hard to draw. I'm not very good at the beginning, the distance between the 'rice' shapes. So, the total tangle is a bit out of proportion, but I think that's OK, that's just me.

I took a colored tile (I think it's the third week in a row that I use that color, so next week I'll take something else) and started my personal formed Waybop. Framed it and I think the result is not too bad :-)

Februari swap

Voor de eerste keer een swap van Aly; leuk dat ze Magda is gaan helpen!
Aly vraagt ons om terug te gaan naar de eerste tangle die je leerde.
Ik weet dat niet precies meer, maar wel dat ik in 2011 de zentangle kit kocht en begon, gewoon maar begon. Dit is een foto van de allereerste foto uit mijn plakboek:

Ik maakte voor deze swap een tile met een aantal van de tangles die ik in die eerste tiles ook gebruikte en dit werd het:  

Heb de tile gister naar Aly gestuurd en ik hoop dat je hem leuk vindt!

Een warme groet,
Annemarie

Valentine and bookmarks

Valentines Day; that's the theme for Challenge 303.
Yesterday evening I made (a very simple) card for Kees to go with a box of chocolates (bonbons as we call them).
So, this is my entry for this challenge (the difference in color is because the card was in the sunshine when I took the photo):


For all of you, happy Valentine!

Last week I made several bookmarks and I like to show them to you here:

Hamadox, a Dutch tangle :-)

A new month, so UMT it is!
This time a tangle by Diana Schreur (always fun when it is a Dutch tangler and CZT) and it is: Hamadox.

I never saw this tangle before, but I like it. As always, I post my first try and Hamadox is far from perfect, but still nice enough. The purple tile works very well with this challenge I think, so I'm quite happy with the result.

HQ .... kitchentable talks

This week Laura sends us the video from HQ (I like that term) with Rick creating a duotangle with Diva Dance and Paradox.
Great to watch, but not as easy as it seemed.

I took a colored 3Z tile and started the way Rick did. As I just said, not so very easy but .... not as difficult as I expected it to be.
I left some open space, but am not sure that was the best thing to do. What do you think?

A purple week again and ... 300!!!!

300!!!! That's the number of challenges Laura has prepared for us over the years.
300 weeks!
THANK you Laura and congratulations!!!

Also Moebius Syndrome (want to know more about that disorder? Go to 'I amthe diva') Awareness Day and as every year, we are asked to make a tile with that theme for Artoo.

I started coloring some purple tiles and after they dried, I chose the most beautiful one. In the right upper corner I started with the symbol and worked from there. After finishing I looked at the tile and saw that it became a sort of landscape with a beautiful sun. Quite appropriate for Artoo I think, because that's what he is in the lives of his family.
So Artoo, this is for you!

Drawings, new to me

Wow, I thought is was cold here in The Netherlands (about - 5C), but then I read what Laura wrote about the temperature in Saskatoon: - 35C. Brrrrr.
To be honest, I don't mind the cold, but HATE when it's slippery because I am not courageous (or stupid) enough to use my bicycle and I don't have a drivers license (yes, I'm one of a dying breed).

On to this week's challenge that brings us to a new official tangle: Drawings. I had seen it, but not tried it before, so yesterday evening I started doing that. I found it not very easy, but after some practicing I started my tile for the challenge.
I took a tile I colored some time ago (I have quite a stack of them now) and after finishing and turning it in all directions, I decided that it had to be in the way I show you here:
