A Dare, A Challenge a TOW, and Journaling Play

Another fun filled week of dares, challenges, contests, and play. I finally jumped in on the Diva Challenge. They always look like so much fun, but time wasn't on my side. Hopefully, it is from this point forward.




The two pencil challenge took me back to my art teacher days when I would have my students draw this way sometimes just for fun. It was fun to do it again:




Challenge From: I Am the Diva















And, every week I have been doing the Dare from Erin at The Bright Owl. I added Annee to this one in its "normal" usage:















I have been "trying" to win some of the new Tangle card packs from Sandy Steen Bartholomew. I have entered this one, based on her tangle "Annee" on her Facebook page. If you want to see a lot of great ones, take a peek.













I worked VERY hard trying how to do this in the round. It was difficult for my little brain, but I finally got it. I did this one too but added Fife so I could add it to my Yahoo Group TOW (tangle of the week).





For the "play" part, there is one last one, but you will have to look on my Art Journal Alleyway on the top tabs on this blog to see it.

Thanks for stopping by :)

    1. I really would love those cards so I thought I should try to do something really different with Sandy's tangle. Boy, did I have a time trying to bend the straight Annee. The tangle does it easily, my mind didn't HAHA! Thanks for the good luck!

    1. Thank you, Lonett. I think it is one of my favorites. I tend to overstuff my zendalas and I think I left this one a little less cluttered.

    1. Thanks, Jane. I MUST remember the KISS principle. I ALWAYS seem to overdo and, for once, I didn't :)
