Last week I challenged my friends to tangle a sun or a sunny feeling. This was the perfect time to add some warm colours. I used some sharpie markers in orange and yellow. They aren't as fine as the pigma pens, but some times you have to work with what you have. A browse through a book about mandalas inspired me for the middle and then I used Arrows and Twisted Ribbons for my sun's rays. I am quite pleased with the result.s
Zentangles, then visit the website for a complete explanation and all sorts of online resources. I'm also a big fan of TanglePatterns.com
My second sun is much simpler of just one tangle, Starburst., oops, and then a bit of beadlines. OK, two tangles. It only seems sunny due to the colours used, if I'd used cool blues then it would have made me think of a star.
It's Elaine's turn to suggest our next challenge. I'll update once I hear from her.
Prophecy: Child of Light (Vampires Realm Romance) by Felicity Heaton. There is quite a bit of descriptive imagery in the book that lends itself to Zentangle style drawing. This is my first attempt at depicting the amulet that Prophecy is given by the three witches. The finger rings work, but the 'star' on top of the hand it totally wrong. It looks more like tendons to me. Time to try again.
Did you do some tangling this past week. Whether it's a sun or not, visit Mr. Linky below and join in the fun. I'll be sure to visit your blog and leave a comment.
