I then went to work on this:
dip pen and ink on a watercolor tile
Zentangle HQ also published a hearty version which I explored next, resulting in the featured tile above, so I was ahead of the game (yaaay!) when Adele's IAST challenge appeared;-)
I have to give myself props for not only doing hearts after Valentines day, but for doing hearts at all;-)
Exploring new patterns in my sketchbook
I've been setting up these pages in my journal so I can immediately introduce new patterns into my repertoire and then have them on hand when I'm out-and-about and needing inspiration.
Neuron and Flowerly are currently featured on Square One: Purely Zentangle. I was inspired by the tile Ragged Ray submitted, hence my interpretation of her Neuron in the left corner (it's cut off in the pic but I will note the source if I'm directly inspired by someone else's work).
A Travelling Tangle:
Anne and I are both working through exercises from the Zentangle Primer, prompted by the Facebook group Tangled and Journaled Too! I don't have the book, so I just follow along with posts by others and see if I can figure it out. It's fun to get back to basics.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Your thoughtful and generous comments delight and inspire me;-)
