Here's the challenge:
Create a Zentangle using your name
or nickname as the string, and only
traditional tangle patterns to fill it in.
You may interpret the challenge however you like,
but stick to black, white and red, and shading,
for your color palette. Any size.
As always, you folks jump at a challenge and make such beautiful art work!
I had planned to do the voting on Facebook, but I had a few emails from non-Facebook users - so I have moved all the entries here to the blog.
If you would like to vote on the winner for the People's Choice category, please do so in the comments below. You just need to leave a comment with the artist's name, but feel free to say what you loved about the piece as well. :-)
Yes - you may vote for yourself.
I will post the winners on Wednesday (August 20th).
Good Luck everyone!
I divided the tile roughly into quadrants, with "A" on the left, "D" top middle, "A" bottom right, and "M" top right. I used Poke Leaf, Zander, Aquafleur, Twing, and Striping. What a fun challenge!
As a string for my tile I used my initials AG. I selected the patterns based on my firstname:

D LAUREN PRINCE
I'm really new to tangling but thought I'd play. I used my initial signature, "dLP" as a string.
With the e as string and filled with echoism, nipa, nzeppel, eye-wa and eke.
All related to my name Ellen.
You can see the string on my blog: http://tanglestreet.blogspot.com/2014/08/zentangle-with-bijou-link-to-alpha.html
I used the tangles pais, huggins, jalousie, bales, laced and mak-rah-mee. It can also be found on my blog at http://kiasstuff.blogspot.ca/2014/08/alpha-tangle-for-beez-in-belfry-contest.html
KRYS RUNSON LATTES
LAURA BANISTER CREWS

Tangles used: printemps, meer, purk, nzeppel, twing pepper, kathy's dilemma and echoism.
Asja and kia get my vote! Beautiful work by everyone!ReplyDelete
Bravo to all of you. I couldn't possibly pick a favourite. You are all to be commended for stepping up, finishing the project and posting it. All of those things take time and effort.ReplyDelete
I think everyone is a winner too. Awesome work.ReplyDelete
I vote for Tish.ReplyDelete
I like Asja's!ReplyDelete
Yes, I agree - it's so hard to choose. I forget that. There must be a better way to have a contest without the "contesting"? Hmmmm.... (thinking cap on).... ;-)ReplyDelete
D. Lauren Prince is my #1 vote;ReplyDelete
Ellen Wolters #2 and
Laura Bannister Crews #3
Of course, you could put all the entries in a "hat" and blindly choose one as the winner! Perhaps after winnowing down to four or six.
Great entries so far!
All of them are great!! But...I vote for "Ellen," with "Laura" as 2nd. I can only dream of even attempting what you all created!! Kudos!!ReplyDelete
OMG these are amazing!ReplyDelete
#1 Ellen Wolters
#2 Asja Goven
#3 Adam Roades
I will cast my vote for Adam Roades, but everyone did a wonderful job!ReplyDelete
1 - Cheryl Stocks "Tish"ReplyDelete
2 - Ellen Wolters
3 - D Lauren - wish I was that good as a beginner.
Adam Roades is my choice.ReplyDelete
I vote for d Lauren prince. I like the choice of lower case d and p giving it balance along with stronger color drawing you to the capital L. Nicely done.ReplyDelete
Great job to all!
If S Lauren Prince is new, can't wait to see her stuff in a year! My vote is for her.ReplyDelete
I vote for Asja.ReplyDelete
Wow. How do you pick? I can only get it down to three (and that took a fair bit of pondering and scrolling up n down!) in the end I likeReplyDelete
3. "Tish" because it is so clean and clear.
2. Kia's because I love the "stitch" holding it all together in red.
1. And firstly I think I just love Ellen Wolters unique use of dimension (it's sitting on a "shelf")
But they are all so truly wonderful!
