My zentangle alphabet presented in a concertina format was selected for the exhibition.
Started and hosted by Fiona at Paper Ponderings, this is the third year. This year she realized a long-held goal of creating an exhibition of some of the works created in this challenge. She gathered 63 works by 29 artists from 6 countries (and I'm one of them -woohoo!) and the exhibition goes through November I think. Unfortunately for me, the gallery is in ...... Australia! But for my long distance buddies, try and go see the works in person!
My first alphabet for the year is actually my least favorite so far - the lettering was only okay and the book didn't match what was in my head - disappointing.
The brief for the challenge is that the individual letters max out at 7cm X 7cm (about 2.75") and that one of the two alphabets follow a suggested theme. This year the theme is peace. I have to say, that gave me the most trouble......LOTS of thought went in to how to represent that. I finally settled on an idea and have been working on it now and then.
I plan to make a flag book - I've loved the idea of this form forever but never tried it, so now is the time.
I couldn't get my head around how to represent peace on any sort of global peace, so I brought it down to my level. My personal peace, how I find it, how I see it. Calm, tranquil, quiet - words that evoke peace. Blues, greens = peaceful colors. I am incorporating my photography by using closeups that capture a peaceful feeling then adding lettering in the calm of blue and green. Here's what I have so far:
