Adventures in Monotangles #12 - Verve

Was not sure about doing this challenge. Mostly because of time and other things that I am trying to finish. Although the challenges do give one a chance to try out some new things. In this case it is not the tangle but I got a set of Permapaque metallic plus markers. I am looking for other things to use on the black zendala tiles that will be using in an upcoming class. I have to say I was not impressed with these markers. Will try them on some other surfaces and see how they work. Colors may look different on other materials. There is some inconsistency in the width of the line that they make. Interestingly enough, it seems that the white one is the thinnest line. There is not as much vibrancy with these as the Gelly Roll pens. I have stayed away from the paint pens as do not think they work as well on paper. They are good on glass and nonporous surfaces. If anyone has any suggestions on pens or markers to use I am open to any suggestions. Hope you enjoy this.

Guess will have to experiment with some other markers to see what I like. 

If have not done so, would venture over to Mindful Creations to see what others have done. Better yet, since this is a relatively easy tangle, why not do a quick tile and submit.

Thanks for visiting. As always. comments are welcomed, encouraged, and appreciated.


  1. Great job! I decided to give the gel pens a go also. I too have trouble keeping the lines consistent with that pen. Your color choices are fabulous.

  2. It's quite lovely Donald - the colour looks wonderful on the black - I haven't had much success tangling on black but it's come good here :)

  3. I'm going to try that, colors on black! Your Verve is beautiful.

  4. I know what you mean about controlling metallic pens, have to really go slow, but your tile is wonderful. I like the no hard lines in between each tangle.

  5. very pretty with the metallic pens!

  6. Great idea on black. It looks alright :-)
