The Divas challenge #223 and recent Zentangle® newsletter both challenged me to take on umble again. I thought I'd try it on black, though there was no need to play with line width (more on that in a bit) as it has both thick & thin line width in the original pattern. I did use "redefining the line" to go back and use my black micron to add a black edge to emphasize the Hollibaugh effect of the tangle. This made a big difference! I also noticed the black Zentangle ATC is a much deeper black than the Artagain paper I used below. In addition to the ATC and Pigma micron most of this is done with the Sakura white Gelly Roll and a touch of Zenstone.
I also wanted to get some color on the black. This is approximately an 6.5 inch by 7.25 inch piece of Strathmore Artagain paper that was scored to become a slider pen box for more of my pens. I used both Sakura Stardust and Metallic in addition to the white Gelly Roll.
And I also worked on a more traditional black tile. (Gelly Roll, Zenstone, Fabrico gray and black Pigma micron.) I always learn so much preparing for a new class!
