Zentangle & Moo

Over at Moo Mania (& More) it's Metal. Here is mine, created with hammer and anvil.

Looks like Damascus steel here

Homework on the Diva challenge is the monotangle Betweed.

And this is just a drawing. I love Judaica in all its expressions.

A Vegie Post

Hi, this week's keyword on Every Inchie Monday, Vegetable. Cabbage is good and yummy too.

The twinchie word is Pumpkins. I know this is supposed to be for Halloween, but we don't do Halloween here. Marketing people try to sell stuff for it at this time of year, but it just isn't happening. Pumpkins have other uses, for example, transport that's limited to certain hours before midnight.

Shadow and Shade

Every Inchie Monday has Umbra this week. U-M-M-B-R-A, what a phonetically beautiful word. I remember the total eclipse that was full right here in Melbourne on 23 October 1976. Spring, hot, ABBA playing in people's houses, and all the neighbours out in the street, barbecuing and waiting for this eclipse. Most of us ignored the "don't look at it directly" bit, and it was well worth it. I don't have many, but this is one of the very few happy childhood memories I have. And it's a beauty!

And the twinchie keyword is Leaves. In my world grow these trees.

Colourful Moo and Black & White Tile

The Moo's theme is Bright & Cheerful. I have a quilled Moo with typical Christmasiana, but in the fluorescent version of the usual colours.

3mm & 1.5 mm (1/8" & 1/16") paper strips

The Diva challenge this week is use the tangle Yuma. I mixed it up with a few other recent ones:

Ungual and Quotes

Ungual?!?!? That was one dictionary trip. Alright, see if you can work this one out. I promise I will let on what this is if no one guessed after a few goes. I wonder what everyone on EIM will come up with for this one.

The twinchie word is Quotes. Here are mine:

Herbstfärbung and Celtic Challenge

Haven't tangled for ages. Was finally inspired by Judy West's Celtic Challenge 34.

Slightly larger than A4

But I haven't Moo-ed for even longer. If you'd like to discover what a Moo is, have a look at Moo-Mania, their current challenge is Autumn Colours. We've got spring down here anyway, so the only autumn association is this one:

Asteraceae and Yummo - all quilled

Every Inchie Monday this week has Thistle, which is very amenable to quilling.

The twinchie is quilled too. It's Cake!!! Every town has one and Melbourne is no exception. We've got Acland Street (which happens to be in the suburb I grew up and live in). It's like an exhibition of cake shops that were started by European immigrants some time after the war. Europe does cake well.

And just once more, here is my winning piece. I picked it up with all the awards and certificates.

And there were also prizes. They gave me $350 worth of paper stuff, stamps, washi tapes, etc. Not something I would rush out to buy. But for free..... that a different story, I will find use for this. For example, there are plenty of candidates to tangle on.
