The challenge this week was to use two pencils connected with a rubber band, and draw a string with them. I choose a simple string, two swipes down the tile with my double pencils, and then I played with patterns that I could see 'grow'. Shading this tile was fun. Shading is always my favorite part.
This book, Made in the Shade, by Cris Letourneau CZT, is one of my new favorites. I got a few copies from her and they quickly sold out. Thank goodness I kept one for myself. At first I didn't think I would learn too much as shading is something I love to do, but was I wrong! Cris had lots more ideas to share with me in this book. On page 38 she shows 6 ways to shade a circle. - OK, pop quiz time. Can you come up with 6 ways to shade a circle?
And even more exciting, Cris is going to be with me in Ohio in two weeks! We are going to have a booth with Betsy Queen CZT at the Heart of Ohio painting convention. Cris will be there to sign her books and impart her pearls of wisdom. The 3 of us will have zentangle books and supplies, plus a few surprises.
We will be in booth 317 - right in the middle of it all! If you print out a copy of this post - or show it to me on your smart phone, I'll have a surprise for you!
It's all at the Greater Columbus Convention Center at 400 N High Street in Columbus. The trade show will be open to the public on Thursday 10-7, Friday 10-5 and Saturday 10-2
