Shamrocks - weekly challenge #159

This weeks zendoodle challenge was based on it being St Patricks day on the 17th. So, the challenge was entitled: Top o' the morning!

Now, St Patrick was a bit of a fraud and, apparently, St Patricks celebrations, in its current form, was born in America....

He wasn't from Ireland. The colour one should associate him with is blue. He didn't drive the snakes out of Ireland, mainly because there weren't any. And so on.

But who cares? Doodling puts the fun back in when it has been drained out by a pedant such as myself....

Here is my version of the Top o' the Morning Challenge....

Duotangle - Diva Dance and Crescent Moon

Diva Challenge 158 - Duotangle using just two pattern types, the Diva Dance and the Crescent Moon.

I was inspired to draw in a freer fashion than usual, by fellow tangler, Helen Williams of A Lttle Lime, allowing myself to go for a more flowy type of design rather than keep to the confines of a 'tile'.

Freeflowing suits my style much better, I had just forgotten that rules are there to be broken and more importantly, I have always been a bit of a free radical rebel...

Paisley Pattern. Sort of...

Got really caught up in the process of this one. Really loved losing myself in how this came about - and how it turned out is pretty pleasing too. To my eyes at least.

UMT - Charlie

Here is my attempt at the UMT - Charlie I am the Diva Challenge, week #157. The Charlie bit is the diagonal zigzagging line down the middle. It's a bit schitzophrenic, if you ask me! But good fun to have a go at.

Pretty Handy!

I drew around my hand...and then I drew within my hand....using my hand. No-one gave me a hand, I reckon that deserves a hand...You gotta hand it to me, right?
