30 Tiles Zentangle Challenge (coloured version)

  About three weeks ago, I showed you guys the 30-tiles Zentangle Challenge project that my mum, Joni Toh, and I did. (If you haven't seen it, you can click this link to view it.) And as promised, we're back to show you guys how the coloured version of the project turned out. ^-^

  I used Derwent's Inktense bars, which I love love love. However, I noticed when I was adding tangle patterns on the tiles, that the colour did choke up the Sakura pens and I had to run them over a scrap piece of paper every now and then to get the ink running again. No biggie, though. Just a mild inconvenience.

  We used paper from the same paper mill as the ones Zentangle® uses for their original tiles.
Here's how the paper looked like after laying the Inktense on it.
I left a white border around the entire paper.

After adding water, plus using some tissue to blot some areas to add visual interest.

After drying, plus adding strings to the entire piece.

It was messy work. My fingers got all dirty.
Everything washed out really easily, though.

And here's the work after we finished all the tiles:

I didn't reduce the picture's resolution, so if you'll like to see the patterns we used, you can just right-click > open image in a new tab.

  The project was so much fun to do, and we're both really happy with how it turned out.

  What are your current favourite Zentangle patterns? I'm trying to find new and/or old patterns to learn. When I first started learning Zentangle, my favourite pattern used to be "Paradox". I've really liked working with "Diva Dance", "Undu", "Onion Drops", "You Are Here (YAH)", and "SharlaRella". I'm currently in love with "Pixioze". Let me know your favourites in the comment section below!
