I Tip(ple) my hat to Zentangle

“I intend to live forever. So far, so good.”~Steven Wright, American comedian

Diva Challenge #133: Tipple. I don’t hate it, I don’t love it, I think it’s just a fine ‘n dandy tangle to have in my repertoire. To make this even a bit more exotic, I pulled out a tile from an Ensemble tile I started but forgot all about. Cool! Surprises!

Inspiration for the final touch was gleaned from somewhere on the Internet, but where? I’ve begun using Twitter more these days to build buzz and get assistance for my upcoming Zentangle eBook, so perhaps I saw it there. I saw a piece of art that shaded a tile in bright blue. Stunning.

I pulled out my trusted set of Crayola Blenders and Basics colored pencils and got down to business. My blues do not pop and scream wow, but I like the subtle touch. And now I’m inspired to experiment shading with the rest of the rainbow. I did teach a color class, after all. Time for me to be my own student.

And I do have a cool hat. Several, actually. Time to pull those into my life again.

    Wonderful tile. I love the blue shading. I’ll definitely have to try shading in color. Hope you don’t mind my copying your idea.
