This week the Diva’s challenge is to tangle something colorful and buggy, based on this super fun video from Sakura. I just got this super GellyRoll Metallic collection and hadn’t had time to play with it yet, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity. (Anything to procrastinate on the book. <sigh>)
Well, these pens are absolutely luscious. They are a bit thicker than I usually like to write with and the ink color does not match the cap color, but otherwise I have nothing to complain about. The ink flows beautifully and the colors appear to glow. I just love them.
So, since I am not a huge “bug” fan, I decided to stick with lady bugs. After all, you can’t draw a crescent moon without a lady bug! And I found an adorable lady bug pin who wanted to sit in the center of the flower with his little metallic friends.
And here are the stars from this morning’s Zentangle for the holidays class. We had so much fun making them that we decided to do it again next week.
I hope you all have as much fun with your art as I did today.
