March is gone. Around here, it's a lively month. Both of my kids were born in March, two years apart, so there is always a little birthday fun.
I was so inspired by Margaret Bremner's wedding gift to her daughter and son-in-law, that I did something similar to give to my sons for their birthdays. I didn't get a chance to scan them properly, so one is a little fuzzy. My oldest son is Phil, and he requested his initials, and he also picked the tangles he preferred. Alex is the younger, and people call him Ax (or Axle). I didn't give him a choice, for one, I started the project as an experiment with his letters first. I was so happy with how it was turning out that I let the cat out of the bag and showed them both early on what they were getting for their birthdays.
I think they were happy with them. They let me take their picture to go with this post, so that is probably a good sign.
Thanks to Phil and Alex as they inspire me all the time, and thanks to Margaret, because she does, too!

These are gorgeous, Carole! I love the contrasting colour tangles inside the letters.ReplyDelete
LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! Very handsome boys too Carole!ReplyDelete
What WONDERFUL art! These are stunning - your boys are most fortunate!ReplyDelete
These are awesome Carole! I was inspired by Margaret's original too and have been planning to do my own. You've inspired me even more now.ReplyDelete
slow whistle...those are some good lookin' boys!! love the art too.ReplyDelete
SplenDIFFFerously GORRRgeous!!! Oh my! I love them! (referring to the art, here). :-)ReplyDelete
They both turned out great - the art (and the boys with their adorable smiles). I think I'm going to have to try something like this for a personal challenge. It's hard blending text and zentangle in a way I like - but your's really works.ReplyDelete
Zippity doo dah!!ReplyDelete
Beautiful, beautiful... just awesomely, wonderfully beautiful, Carole. You're a constant inspiration to me! Thank you. xxxReplyDelete
Wow. Just, wow. I'm going to have to do something like this myself. It'll have to go on the to-do pile. Between Margaret's and yours, I'm totally sold on the color combination and the concept with the initials. :DReplyDelete
can't decided which is better looking, the tangles or the guys!! they both look pretty amazing! laceyReplyDelete
Stunning, just stunning! WOW! I could stare at these for days! You have very nice looking sons, too.ReplyDelete
Those are very cool, Carole! Nice. We've got a couple of great sons too! JeffReplyDelete
