mother's day gems

  Hello lovelies~ How has your week been? Half of my household is down with the flu right now. My husband and I are still going strong, thankfully. I've planned for us to go on a date to a board games cafe today. :) Very excited for that.

  Here's what I did for this week's Zentangle challenges. Joey wanted us to use the tangle, "Friendship". The Diva wanted us to use auras in our tiles. In the top tile, I used Friendship as a border tangle and added Featherfall. With the bottom tile, I echoed the gemstones of Friendship, and used Tripoli and Diva Dance Waltz.
I really like finding ways to join tiles together in a sketchbook.

  For Mother's Day, I created some paper flowers, inspired by the lovely li.la.o on Instagram. It was great fun, and I might just do a video tutorial on the project some time in the future.

  Even though I'm currently seven months pregnant, it didn't feel very Mother's Day-y for me... I'm guessing perhaps it'd feel more real next year. I did spend a lovely day with my mum. We went out shopping and for tea.
Done with Peerless watercolours.

  If you haven't seen it already, I posted a flip-through video of my Givetangle/Gratitangle 2017 sketchbook...

  I'm working on my spiral-bound Fabriano sketchbook. It contains drawings done using ballpoint pen or Neocolor. Here's one page I completed recently. It is a study done of a painting I found in an instructional book. I really like the colours. Looking at it on screen, I would darken the darks, though.
Neocolor II, used without water.

  And that is all I have for you this week. Thanks for stopping by.
