Weekly Challenge #316: String Theory – Stripes!
this weeks challenge #316 – we were asked to create our string using stripes with varying widths, without having to be uniform or even! anything is possible as long as it’s stripes. I decided to tangle on a zendala which I colored with watercolors before I draw my strings. I had a great time tangeling those stripes and as you can see, there are lots of stripes, even stripes in stripes, I couldn’t stopp doing those lines:)
2 Zentangle Basic Classes at L-Beach Festival
Last weekend I was invited to give two Zentangle Basic Classes at a huge Festival at the Baltic Sea! It was a wonderful experience and there were so many ladies who wanted to take this classes. We had to get more and more tables in that room until there where no more space!
I had a great time and I guess everybody else had, too! The ladies were so creative, they tangled with me the basic patterns and couldn’t stopp enhancing them, with some ideas I gave them and lots of their own ideas. Actually the class was supposed to take 90 minutes, but because they had so many own ideas on their tangles we spend almost 3 hours tangling. That ist why I have not all tiles in my first mosaic, some ladies had to go pretty fast to dinner:)
The next day some ladies came back and took the class again:) That is why I made two different Basic classes. Friday Zentangle Basics “geometric”, whith static, rain, hollibaugh and cubine and on Staturday Basics “organic” with crescent moon, mysteria, bales and pokeroot. One funny thing that happend to me, on Friday’s geometric tangle class I planned so draw the “Z” string and for the organic class some rounded “e” string. Well, I was talking about string at my geometric class and -tada – I drew the “e” string I had planned for the organic class. So, when I told my students, that any string would work, I had to smile and somehow to sweat a little bit more. It is one thing to be unplanned at the kitchen table, than in a prepared class with 30 people. But I love those “oops” they really help to get more and more confindence in teaching!:) And the end of my class I certainly told the ladies about my unplanned string, I think that is always a great chance to really show the attendees that it works! So thanks to all the creative ladies for that great time.

Well, isn’t it a lot more drama to have a geometric string with organic tangles and an organic string with geometric tangles! It is magic:)
Thanks for visiting my blog! And have a sunny sunday!
