Zentangle Diva Challenge 237

The challenge this week is from guest poster CharKat a local fellow CZT.  She has a great studio/store in Temcula, CA where she offers a variety of classes - check it out.

The challenge is to use a stencil as a string and use spray inks, dyes to create it on the tile, then go tangle it.  Most of what I needed to complete this challenge is out at my studio so I had to improvise a little - like using the juice from my breakfast blueberries as the coloring agent.  After painting, spritzing, and flicking juice mostly on several tiles plus the surrounding area I did eventually find a stencil. Used a small paint brush to mark the stencil on the tile.  There is some light shading but the scan didn't pick up much of that.

Have also had the wood burning pens fired up quite a bit lately - creating items for craft fairs and getting a head start for holiday gifts.  Below are some of the wall hooks.  All are done on basswood most are 4" with a few 5" ones.
