Thursday's Dream Schemes/ What are friends for...

By Wayne Harlow Zentangle card with the LM193 Dragonfly stencil 
The February challenge is all about love and/or friendships all done in the CAS format (Clean and Simple). Today I am doing a live television show in the UK called Create and Craft ...so click on that link to see what's happening across the pond with Dreamweaver Stencils. Because of the time difference you may not see me "live", but you might find one of my segments that they repeat through the evening and night hours. On the show I plan on CASEing the card you see here originally designed by my friend, Pam Hornschu, using the dragonfly stencil (LM193). I practiced like crazy and still wasn't quite satisfied, so Wayne (my best friend and hubby) spent some time teaching me and did the one on this post...(I put the pieces together). The practice is something that does pay off in the long haul. If you would like to see Pam's original card then purchase Suzanne McNeill's  Zentangle 6 book. This book shows how you can create the tangle patterns inside the Dreamweaver Stencils. Quite a few of the cards in the book are done by the Dreamweaver design team with our stencils. Zentangle is a new thing for me and I do enjoy it. The "Zen" portion of the artform is definitely something I benefit from and because of that I need to take more time to tangle than I do, it really helps cut down on the stress. Hope you'll have a chance to give it a try too and just maybe you will share the experience with a friend.

Don't forget to visit the design team's blogs and leave some love in the form of comments...they love it when you do. Click HERE to find out more about this month's challenge and to link your creation to mr. linky. Usually if you don't have a blog I will post it for you...however this month because of my travels you need to email your creation to louisehealy@sbcglobal.net and she will post it for you on my site.
