Weekly Challenge #20: Royal Wedding



The theme for this week's challenge at I am the Diva CZT is Royal Wedding. A theme ripe for either romantic ooh and aahing or parody. Not being a monarchist, I opted for parody and the hat parade at the wedding was too tempting a target. Originally I was going to borrow from the actual hats worn by the guests but then I happen to notice the cover of one of the chemistry trade journals that my husband subscribes to--the chemical structure of an enzyme. Perfect! The model for the hat is Earl Spencer's girlfriend who wore a hat with such a wide brim that her face was virtually invisible. I gave her a braid with an actual zentangle pattern and it was done! I am rather pleased with the results.

P.S. I did not watch the wedding but did look at the slide shows in the New York Times. The actual structure is much more complex than what I have drawn.

  1. Ahhh! I love blending science and art! This hat is much cooler than anything worn at the wedding : D

  2. Yes, I like your tangle hat much more than the ones at the wedding. Neat idea!
