May 21


I'm finally back! Hopefully it won't be another month or so before I come here to update.  There's been a lot going on, including a wonderful vacation in Arizona! Maybe more about that later. In the meantime, here's a new tile I just finished. It's for Diva's Weekly Challenge #218, where we were challenged to use a white gel pen (I used Gelly Roll by Sakura) on black tile (I used an official Zentangle tile).  The tangles I used for this are Mooka and Zinger.


I thought maybe that was a little too simple, so I've changed it a bit. Which one do you prefer, the original or this one?



And here is black on white! Black Pigma Micron on white 3.5 x 3.5 Zentangle tile. Lightly shaded with regular graphite #2 pencil. And here again I used Mooka and Zinger.



Also, some of you know that I also make jewelry. I have entered a contest to win a book about making Vintage style Jewelry. Wish me luck!



I'll be back in a couple days with more. In the meantime, won't you please let me know you were here?  Your comments mean a lot, and I will reply.
Thank you.  =^;^=

  2. Your white on black tile is really effective---very crisp with a lovely combination of well executed tangles. What type of white pen did you use?

  6. This is a great combo for a black tile. Those Zingers are so nice and bold and the Mooka compliments it nicely!

    1. Thank you Annette. You are SO RIGHT! It's not easy working with gel pen or black tiles! This is only about the 3rd time I've tried. I hope you have a great weekend also. And thanks for noticing my little sig CT.
