this week's Diva challenge. It fit so nicely with what I have been doing. Even before the challenge, I had a photograph last week for The Weekend in Black and White that was essentially Cubine! Plus I had been enjoying Margaret Bremner's "and then some" posts, just hadn't gotten to Cubine yet. Then The Diva challenged us with combining this lovely organic and round tangle, Pokeroot with boxy Cubine for this week's DuoTangle.
this post. I was coloring in that corner box when I realized I had colored in the wrong area. Hmmm, we'll just emphasize that by putting my initials there and that can be an intentional artistic statement, right? So, looks good, but no Pokeroot.....
I felt I was finally ready for a Zentangle tile when I wised up and thought to draw the Pokeroot as parentheses from the bottom up, then added the stem. Now that's better! (See first photo)
In addition to the supplies already mentioned, I used an 01 Sakura black micron (I'm realizing I prefer to color in with that most of the time) and white Sakura Gelly Roll pen. There is also some graphite shading although most of the shading is done with the Koi. And hey, I have a few ATCs to give away again! Yeah!
