By the time you read this B-rad and i will be on our way to Edmonton, AB to see the concert production of Roger Waters' "The Wall" (you may know Roger from such bands as Pink Floyd...) We are very big Pink Floyd fans in this house. B-rad actually flew to the West Coast to see this show in 2010 just after Artoo was born. I couldn't go, obviously, i was home with a very teeny tiny baby at the time. So when we heard he was touring it again, I couldn't pass up the chance to see the show.
|Roger Waters = 50 Shades of AWESOME|
It's only for one night, but we are going to be about 5 hours from home - so it's a little nerve wracking, as well as exciting. So, wish us luck interweb family!

Weekly Challenge #72: "Tanglation Nation - Crescent Moon"
One of the wonderful parts of Zentangle is how it is always growing and changing and becoming something beautiful and new. Part of the way this happens is through tangleations or variations of tangles.
In this week's challenge we are going to explore the tangle Crescent Moon - one of, what i consider to be, a staple of Zentangle. Play with this tangle, really open it up and take it for a drive... put the top down and let your hair loose! Where can it go? What can it do. What are you and Crescent Moon capable of together?
|A Monotangle of Crescent Moon tangleations|
Create a Monotangled* tile or Zentangle Inspired Art using only Crescent moon and it's variation.
*Monotangle is a term referring to a tile or ZIA that uses only one tangle - either in it's true form or tangleated form
If you have a blog, add the site-specific URL where your tile is posted to the linkey machine below! Don't forget to link back here so that others can join in the fun! (if you don't know how to find this, you can see my half assed tutorial here)
Also, please feel free to come back often and visit the links of those people on the linkey machine - don't forget to leave a comment or feedback, everyone loves feedback. ;)
If you don't have a blog but still want to participate, you can email your tile to me and i will post it here. (See the contact tab above for my email address). The deadline for each weekly challenge is Saturday night so that i can round everyone up by Sunday. What this means is that i will stop adding tiles to the slideshow on Sunday. You're still more than welcome to do the challenges and add your name to the linkey machine.
Hey - i should note here quickly that i try my best to get the slideshows up in a timely fashion, but sometimes my life gets in the way (like when Artoo spends a week in the hospital, just for example) so, please be patient. thanks. HUG
I will be more diligent with the linkey machine - by editing out the ones that don't work, the doubles, the links that lead to nowhere, the links that go just to blog home pages (this is why we need those site specific urls), and the spam. And there is some spam. PLEASE do not put your *home* page in the linkey machine... please? for me??
