Long Weekend!

      Yahoo!  It is Memorial Day weekend here in the states and I have a wonderful long weekend.  I don't really have any school work to take one of my days.  That is not to say I don't have school work - I do, tons of it.  It is just moving and packing and cleaning.  Which means none of it could be brought home.  Ah, poor me.  Not.
      I loved the template for Bright Owl this week.  I always print all three sizes, but seem to only have time for one or two.  This week, I got to do all three.  The first one reminds me of a dream catcher for some reason.

     Then I did the next one with my browns and sepia pens.  I love those colors and use them a lot.  Actually brown tones are among my favorite colors.  I also experimented using different sizes of pens rather than just grabbing the 01.
     The last one, I am not too sure about.  It is okay.  Again I played with different pen sizes.  I am just not sure the results were what I wanted, but hey, two out of three is not bad.
      I also got to work on the inchie for Every Inchie Monday.   The word of the week was melody.  I started to take a picture of one of my sweeties in my classroom - her name is Melody.  Then I decided that might not work. So I layered some scrapbook paper onto my inch.  There is a really pretty piece of vellum that has musical notes all over it, but it doesn't seem really visible.  Then I took the black gel pen and drew a single note.  Not real fancy, but it does fit the word.  If you want to see some gorgeous works of art within a one inch frame - check out the side bar.  They are always stunning.
    The weather is gorgeous.  The lab is (im)patiently waiting near the back door.  I feel a football game coming on.  I am so glad to be back to being able to "move".  That bronchitis is for the birds!  Hope your weekend is beautiful and filled with sunshine!  Thanks for dropping by and as always, I love your comments!

  1. Does anyone know how to get rid of those little tags every time I type any office supply words - for example "pens"?

    1. I don't. I've seen it on some pretty sophisticated web sites too. I think it's imbedded in the host software of what you chose, i.e., google, wordpress, etc. I'm not an expert at all, but I've come eto the opinion, you have to build your own website from scratch to make sure that doesn't happen.

  2. Wow! All three are beautiful, and all so different. That is one of the things I love about zendala/mandala templates. Each version can look so different than the next one using the same template. I can't pick a favorite, I like all three.

  3. Three amazing zendala's. My favorite is the third because of the bold lines. I love that.

  6. These are all pretty and well done, but I must say that I am really awed by the first one. The very fine, color work in the center is so nice and I love the whimsical touch of the tied up edges all around.

  12. Your Zendala's are great! I especially like the first one and how you finished off the top with a little bead and tassle. Nice!
    Love your use of color, too. Nice work on all three!
