So this was the first full week at my new “job” as the sole proprietor of CharKat’s Creative Insanity. I never realized there was so much work involved in being a legitimate business!
So far, I have filed a Fictitious Business Name Statement, advertised said statement in the newspaper, applied for a city business license and home use permit, and scoped out a possible place to have classes. Which brings me to my biggest hurdle…finding classroom space that I can afford!
I have also fleshed out the web site a bit, with class descriptions for what I plan to offer, and did some really neat brochures to hand out.
And that brings us to this week’s Diva Challenge…#219: “Straight Lines all the Tines…er, times.” I figured if all my lines had to be straight, I should do this on a round tile. So I selected one of the cool hand-dyed tiles I purchased from fellow CZT Caren Mlot at TangleU, the uber cool template from Ann E. Grasso, and my favorite mini ruler from Charles Williams, and strung up what I thought was a pretty cool string.
I have to say, I am rather pleased with the result. And before you go poo-poo-ing my use of dots….they are one dimensional lines. Other than the Signo UM-153 silver dots, it was just me and my Micron (and a touch of graphite in the straight line areas.)
And I am still playing catch up, a little…this is the last one from recent Diva Challenges, it was #217, which was Laura’s Birthday challenge…Bunzo vs. Dex. This is on GarzaPapel 300 gsm water color paper, which I had previously stained with hibiscus tea. I worked it with a soft tip Tombow Japanese calligraphy pen, because the surface was a bit bumpy.
And this weeks Square One: Purely Zentangle (on FaceBook) was Purk. “If there’s a Purk in your Fengle, don’t be alarmed now…it’s just a Zinger left from last week.” (I often hear song lyrics in my head while I am tangling…pretty bizarre, but very much a part of my sense of humor and being a rocker chick.)
That’s it for now. Getting ready to hit to road to Texas for a couple days. Have a wedding to go to, if the floods don’t carry us all away first!
Stay Crazy My Friends!
