August Progressive Challenge at the Outlawz

Hello everyone! 

It's August now! Summer is going too fast! 

We have a new Progressive challenge at the Outlawz  that starts August 1 and runs through August  31st!  Jean Chaney, my friend and teammate at the Outlawz has provided two images this month. They are called Swish, the Angelfish and Swish, Tangled.

Here is a word from Jean about her images.
As a Certified Zentangle teacher, I feel it is important for you to know that these images, while using some of the patterns of Zentangle are in actuality ZIA’s (Zentangle Inspired Art). The Zentangle® method is an easy to learn, relaxing and fun way to use structured patterns to create beautiful images. Do read more about this method from the founders of this meditative approach to art on their website.
For ZIA, images can be drawn and filled with patterns. Color may be added. Two images have been provided this month. One filled with tangles and the other leaves room to add your own if you choose. Color away and enjoy. I’m looking forward to seeing your creative additions.

Here are my cards. Hope you will stop by the challenge and see what my teammates have made with these super cute images!

This card is with the image, Swish, Tangled. Jean has created a little scene with Swish and is part of the image. I colored with Copic markers and just used some papers, ribbon, and washi tape from my stash of supplies.  A white Faber Castell Pitt Pen made the white dots.

This card has Jean's image, Swish the Angelfish and I colored him/her with my Copic markers. The background scenery is an underwater digi by Make It Crafty. 


We had a great response for our July challenge.  If you took part in this progressive challenge in July, you will automatically receive by email the new August image. If you didn't take part but want to, it is easy to join the fun.

First, you must be a member of the Outlawz. If you aren't a member, just drop by and ask to join. After your request is approved, you can join the Progressive Challenge or any of our other seven challenges.

Next, you will need to register to play. Do this by sending an email to the address on the challenge page with your name and email address and an email will be sent to you.
The rules are very simple: join the challenge, join the progressive/freebie group, send us an email to register and then enter a project made with the image supplied before 6:00 p.m. EST on the last day of the month and you will automatically get the next image. If for any reason you don’t get your project made and you would like to rejoin us, you can buy the image of the month from the sponsor's store and as long as you enter it before the end of the month you will get the next one free and you will then get them automatically each month you enter a project.
Please do not add your image to Pinterest, or your blog or anywhere it can be copied from without a watermark. You can not share these images with anyone – if your friends or family want them send them HERE to join in and get their image or if they don’t want to join the challenge please send them to the sponsor's store to purchase the image.
When you have made your project please place it onto the challenge page for August, enter it into the Gallery (use the tag PF33 for the August challenge) and the August Inlinkz to be entered into the draw for the site wide prizes from our other wonderful sponsors – check out the Outlawz side bar for this month’s prizes!
