This week the challenge from Laura at I am the Diva is to create a tile or ZIA using the prompt: Mardi Gras. Here in the panhandle of Florida, Mardi Gras is a big deal to lots of folks; however, it's not a celebration that I usually pay much attention to. When my children were small, my hubby would often take them to the Mardi Gras parades and they would always come home with tons of beads! So...with that as my inspiration...here's my take on the challenge.
I drew this in my sketchbook and it's about 5 x 5 inches. The beads my kids would collect at the Mardi Gras parades would end up in piles all over the house....and slowly but surely they'd end up with the strands broken and bits and pieces would be everywhere....and at that point they'd be headed for the trash. I think I'll keep these beads though...even though they do look like the strand is broken! LOL!
I've got a couple of other little pieces to share today, too. Just some things I did while vegging in front of the television...
This was drawn on a 4 x 4 inch tile....simple and just plain fun! The pattern down the center is one that I designed, although I'm told it resembles Oof, it really isn't drawn the same way at all. I think I'll call it Eleganze.
This one my hubby thinks looks like snakes. I think I'll call it "what lies beneath"....LOL!
That it for right now....I might be back later with a new card. Thanks so much for popping in! Until next time...
