Weekly Challenge #356

Hey everyone!

i'm so sorry this week's post is late, but i have been battling a multi-day headache and i just can't seem to get on top of it.  I do suffer from migraines, but this one never seemed to escalate to full migraine status and just stayed miserably under the migraine radar... i could function but it was difficult and exhausting.  So thanks for the bit of leeway there.

I'm just going to jump right into the challenge this week because i already feel guilty enough that it's so late!

So here we go.

Weekly Challenge #356: "What's in a name?"

That's right people! It's a String Theory challenge.  This week's challenge is to use your name as your string! :) If you don't want to use your name, or maybe you're in the witness protection program and you don't want anyone to know your name, feel free to use any word you like.

Begin with dots and border, then starting from somewhere on the border - write your name in cursive to divide up the tile.  You may have to look at the length of your name, and adjust accordingly.

in my tile i used all lower caps so the l would attach to the rest of my name easily.

here's the process video if you're interested in watching that.

have a great week everyone!
And if you're on the Zentangle Mosaic App or Instagram - i'm @iamthediva - come on by and follow me, and i'm going to be using hashtags on the app for each of my weekly challenges. So if you're game - use the hashtag #DC356 (Diva Challenge #356) for your tile this week! You can also search in the app for people's contributions to the challenge by clicking on the hashtag from inside the app, or using the search function. 
If you have a blog or host your images on line (like on Flickr or Picassa or Pinterest), add the site-specific URL where your tile is posted to the linkey machine below! Don't forget to link back here so that others can join in the fun! (if you don't know how to find this, you can see my half assed tutorial here) Also, please feel free to come back often and visit the links of those people on the linkey machine - don't forget to leave a comment or feedback, everyone loves feedback. ;) 
If you love the challenge as much as i do, please consider leaving a tip (tip jar in the side bar). I write this blog for free and have no plans to make it a paid for service in the future. Buy me a cup of coffee, or a new Micron pen!! Click the tip jar on the side for a monthly tip, but if you just wanna throw a few bucks my way THIS LINK will give you a one time option. A very big thank you to those who have kept me in hot cups of joe. ;)
