Blueprint & Femineus

This morning I made my zentangle for zentangle challenge #15 at I am the diva. I used the same idea from my studio journal as an ATC I made for the March swap at Stitchin Fingers. My swap partner sent me a message it arrived, so I can show you both. I'm also working on a small applique with the same idea, so I called my ATC Blueprint. It's stitched in perle 5, 8 and 12 in Portuguese stem stitch, closed herringbone, knotted loop stitch and straight stitches. At the edge I couched a cotton/linen knitting yarn. There's a bigger photo at my Flickr-page. I tried to translate this same idea in a zentangle. The feminine shapes where perfect for this week's challenge to use only curved lines. I made this zentangle in my A5 sketchbook, so it's bigger than the ATC.

  3. I love the sexy curves of your tangles, lovely patterning. Your embroidery is great also. I've recently been looking at embroidery it seems like the perfect accompaniment to Zentangles and you've proved it!

  5. What a nifty idea to follow the same curves in embroidery and a ZT!! Love 'em both ;-0 Had never tried Floatfest before, either, it's fun to draw, but I had to pay attention so I didn't get lost!
