Now on the the Diva Challenge. This week she based the challenge on her recent activities. She, along with her family, spent some time enjoying different activities on the water. We were suppose to use "water" to inspire us in creating our tile. Well I went to one of my earliest resources. One of the first books that I purchased about Zentangle® was Sandy Bartholomew's Totally Tangled. She has a page in her book that shows a number of Japanese images that represent water. I chose one of them. I have not looked at others, except a few that showed up on my blog reader. Here is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy it.
Tangles used: Swell, Squid, Sanibelle
This is quite different from what I usually do. I have been using a little more color but not like this. I used a combination of Irojiten and Derwent pencils. The water is a layering of Irojiten Horizon Blue, Hyacinth Blue and Derwent Sea blue. The last is the darker color. Sanabelle is a layering of Irojiten Straw Yellow, Bamboo, and Maple Sugar. On Squid I used Pigeon Gray for the orbs and Cameo Pink for the tentacle.
I now hope to be able to spend some time viewing what others have done. As usual, I encourage you to go to I am the Diva and look at all the great art. Take the time to comment, as most people appreciate this. If so inspired, take the challenge yourself.
Thanks for visiting. As always, comments are welcomed, encouraged, and appreciated.
Go Tangle !!
