Zentangles can smile

“The day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”~Anais Nin, American writer

Welcome to this week’s Diva Zentangle Challenge #152. Using the new official tangle Aquafleur, I created this tile. I was working on another art project at the same time, so I used the last bits of the Lumiere Halo Gold Pink paint as an accent. Heck, that stuff is just too gorgeous to waste. Then there’s the Inktense pencils I added. I wanted to see the raw color. Next time, however….

I drew three Aquafleur “blobs” on my tile. When I completed the first one, I showed it to my husband. He commented that the tiny one looked like a funny star or a gingerbread man.

“No, that is going to be a tangle,” I said.

“Oh, okay,” my husband said. With a little sigh, he added, “That’s too bad. It looks cute.”

That smiley face is for him.

    The smiley for hubby is grand! The luminere paint looks yummy. Wish I could see it in person, as I am sure that it just glows!
