Week 16 of 365 Days of Art Challenge

This week has just flown by. Week 16 of the 364 Days of Art Challenge! Wow! Where has the time gone?!

Create Mixed-Media announced the winners today of the Zen Doodle: Oodles of Doodles challenge. I am
Zen Doodles Oodles of Doodles challenge
one of the winners!!! Whoo-hoo!!

I posted last week when I received the email about being one of the winners and which Zentangles were accepted. (See post from Fri, April  I've been busy drawing my step-outs for each Zentangle that was accepted. However, I can't show these just yet.  You'll just have to wait for the book to be published to see my sketches for Week 16! F&W Media is planning a Dec 2014 publish date. Thank you for your understanding and support! (especially my husband - he's been having to cook this week! Lol!)
The editor also asked me to send a few more photos of my Zentangles. I like Traci Bautista's glamour girls and had to try a couple. This is one I sent. The others have been posted already.

I also quilted some this week. I've been working on a charm square challenge issued by the President's of the Prickly Piecer's quilt guild chapter I belong to. I found a modern quilt pattern that I really like called Shine Through by Zen Chic's Brigitte Heitland. I chose Kaffe Fassett fabrics for the charm pack and a solid red background with a solid purple backing fabric. I plan to also use the purple fabric to add a piping to the binding.  I'm ready to start quilting, but not sure how I want to quilt it yet.

  1. The girl is lovely, and the quilt just amazing! That is something I can't even think of trying to do, such small pieces of fabric and complicated design...Well, maybe one day. lol! I love the colors you chose, so vibrant and happy looking.

    1. Thank you! The girl was a challenge, so I'm happy with the way she turned out. I don't usually do modern quilts, but fell in love with this pattern. Was much harder to do than I expected! Getting the grid correct took me 3 whole days - something I thought would take a couple hours! Lol!! Still thinking about quilting designs. Any suggestions?
