In Challenge #30 (!), Laura Harms, CZT, invited Christina Vandervlist, CZT, to guest challenge. Christina challenges us to use our initials as string.

Take a look at many other great initially inspired Zentangle tiles at Laura's blog.

Thanks, Laura. Thanks, Christina. (Christina's blog)

Initial is derived from the Latin initialis, which means standing at the beginning. Maria(and Rick) ~ you stand at the beginning of my list of favorite artists.

Nicely said, Lois. There are many standing with you on that!

Also, not only can I not get enough of playing with Tripoli, I'm also still in love with just looking at it. I love the white on black in this.

This is beautiful! I like the frame in a frame look.

This is posted to the wrong challenge (Challenge 29 rather than Challenge 30). I hope you see this and re-post it to make sure your beautiful work is included in the slide show.
