I see your true colours...

  I've been working on my tiles for various weekly Zentangle challenges. They're all being done in my sketchbook. But I've been so busy for the past week that I've not gotten around to completing them. I'm so sorry I haven't been posting here, either... 

  Here are some tiles from the Travelling Tangles Project that I've been working on...

  Sandy Kelley-Jones did the start to this wonderful tile. The obvious choice would be to have complete the Huggins, but I refused to take the easy route. Instead, I added a curvy version of Floatfest, plus Cadent and then went super crazy with Striping it. (That's why it took a while for me to complete the tile....) The original Huggins then became a sort of river. This was fun!

  Here's another one from Kat van Rooyen.

  I secretly hate working on black Zentangle® tiles because of how much they absorb the ink from my white pen.... And so it takes a while to get my lines to look as opaque as I want them to be. But I still had fun with it. I added some gems, and then made everything look like a bracelet.

Pretty tassels.

  Also notice how I'm toying with the idea of changing my initial? It's a triangle with a dot in the middle in the last two tiles... But I'm still reverting back to my cursive "s" initial, so I'm not sure yet... Here's a tile from Sabrina Kirjavainen.

  And here's my finish. I'm teaching that fan-shaped looking pattern in my classes this month. ^-^

  And one last one. This one is from the Diva herself, Laura Harms.

  And here's what I did with it.

  If you didn't know yet, I also cut my hair!

  And here's just one last tile that I did for fun. I've sent it off to one of my best friends who currently lives in London. It's the same tile; the one on the left side is just the line art, the one on the right is after I added colours with Peerless watercolours, and shading with a grey Fabrico marker.
Shading with markers is tough, but I think I did a good job.

  I hope you enjoyed seeing what pretty things I've created in the past week. I've been working on other things, too. It's just that they're not completed yet so I didn't want to show you yet. Until next week.... Keep tangling!
