The Ultimate Weekly Roundup Link Collection eBook

The Ultimate Weekly Roundup Link Collection
a resource for pattern drawing artists

This final eBook features links from seven years of the Weekly Roundup. It contains, in one convenient place:

  • over 6,200 links to pattern step-outs and videos,
  • around 350 links to tutorials and other interesting content in 16 categories, culled from all 344 Weekly Roundups.

In your PDF reader, you can search for a pattern name, or a pattern designer's name. Patterns are listed in alphabetical order of pattern name, great for those challenges that require you to use patterns whose name starts with a particular letter.

The eBook doesn't contain the patterns themselves, just web links to them.
Click here to download a free sample.

Cost of the eBook is USD$6.49, payable with PayPal.
The eBook is in PDF format which can be read on most computers, smartphones, or tablets.

Digital paintings from online class part 2

I am still working on the online class Framed Botanicals by Tricia Dewey.

Here are four more paintings based on my own backgrounds, and photos of botanicals from Pixabay. I created the first one in honour of Remembrance Day, November 11th.

The eBook will be available here on Friday, November 17th.

Digital paintings from online class

I have been in a bit of a rut with my digital painting lately. Then I started a great online class called Framed Botanicals by Tricia Dewey. It's an awesome class.

I have created these three paintings, mostly in Procreate, and I am working on a bunch more. What fun!

Weekly Roundup #343

The Future of the Weekly Roundup

Dear friends... When I started the Weekly Roundup in December 2010, shortly after I became a Certified Zentangle® Teacher, I had no idea that it would continue for this many years. I appreciate all my faithful readers, and also all the wonderful artists' contributions.

Sadly though, the readership of the Roundup has diminished considerably over the last few years, which tells me that a lot fewer people are finding it useful.

Also, during this time, my interests have been changing. I am doing less tangling, more mixed-media art, and more digital art. I am also making a resolution to spend more time making art, and less time looking at artwork or watching how-to YouTube videos. I will also be revamping my website.

So... Weekly Roundup #345 (in two weeks) will be the last one. I will be announcing an updated eBook of pattern links and videos, which will also include links to websites and Facebook groups for you to check to stay up to date on everything to do with tangling.

Digital painting with steps

Here is my latest digital painting. Below are the components that came together on my iPad to create this painting.

1. This is the photo I started with (from Pixabay).

2. I added the woman's silhouette, and applied a texture filter in iColorama.

3. Then I took this scan of a collage piece I made a while back for an online class...

4. ...and blended everything together in Procreate.

Some digital art and a little bead embroidery

This is a digital painting of an owl, based on a photo from Pixabay, and done using Metabrush and iColorama apps.

This is a stylized flower layered digitally with one of the backgrounds I made using metallic paint.

On a different note, this is a new beaded pin I made as an entry in a contest. I didn't win, but I now have a groovy new pin to wear!
