A Dare, Bookmarkers, and Maisma

Geneviève Crabe contributed one of her Zendala templates today to Erin's dare from The Bright Owl. This template had LOTS of lines and I started spinning until I remembered that you do not have to include every single line into your tangle. Well, even with those barriers removed, I still managed to add more of my own even after I had removed a lot of the originals:
I also have a trade of vined and flowered bookmarkers that need to be mailed out:


I sprayed the 2" x 6" cardstock before I added the tangles with colored pens. I used Henna Drum, Zinger, Jax, Limpitz, CatKin, Rose and Barberpole. Then, I added some Copic markers for highlighting and shadows.

The TOW for this week was to use Maisma by Linda Dawson. Take a look at Linda Farmer's Tangled Patterns Site. I felt "boxed in" by it, so I went outside the box:

















I so appreciate your looking at my blog and appreciate getting your comments. I will, hopefully, be getting my CZT certification soon and am trying very hard to get my work to be worthy of the title. I don't feel that my work is as neat as I would like so I try to make up for it in originality. I'm not sure that is a fair exchange though LOL! How I so admire all the real talent out there. I love how everyone shares so willingly in this tangled community!
