If you saw my post yesterday, you know I'm working on mini-books to hold either ATC cards, or Zentangle tiles. I incorporated this week's Diva Challenge #174, superimposing strings, to adorn the cover of my newest Zentangle tile mini-book. The finished book is 4" x 4" and is made from Strathmore Art Paper. Mine came in a pad of 12" x 18" assorted colors. I cut a sheet of blue down to 11" x 16". It was a little difficult to fold, and the paper is heavy enough that it doesn't want to stay closed, but I'm working on a closure for it. The blue looks awesome, doesn't it? I think storing completed tiles with blue accents including the renaissance tiles, will be an ideal choice. For more on how to make these mini-books, check out this post. My superimposed string resembles a framed basketball with the mark of Zorro!
In addition to the string in pencil, I used Sakura Microns in both blue and black. Shading and highlighting was done with Faber-Castell Polychromos Prussian Blue and General's Charcoal White.
