I haven't had time to play along with Laura's Zentangle challenge at I am the Diva in quite a while...well, technically, I've played along some of the time, just never got my tangles posted. This week's challenge is to:
"find something way out of your comfort box. If you shy away from colour, now is a good time to try it... if you always do something small, try something big. If you always do a larger piece, try a few teeny tiny ones. Maybe you've never tried a zendala. Maybe you've never tangled an object and those bookends have been staring at you saying: "TANGLE ME"..."
So, that's what I did. I had purchased a few ceramic tiles from Home Depot months ago thinking that I would make some coasters with decoupage, but I never got around to it...then when I saw this challenge, I thought I'd try doing a few tangles on a tile. I think I probably will have to heat set it in the oven or something...not sure what...to keep the pen from smudging off (even though I used a microperm pen from Sakura)...I'd hate for it to smudge! Anyway, I digress...here's my tile for this week's "out of the box" challenge. This first one was taking with the tile lying flat.
This second one I stood the tile on one edge to take the photo.
I couldn't figure out how to do any shading, so I'll have to leave them as is. So...what do you think....should I heat set them or try spraying some type of fixative on them?
Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments and your visits are always appreciated!! Until next time...
