This week at "I am the Diva" challenge # 324" we were asked to create a tile using a heart shape as a string.
I decided to add the tangle "Fife" inside the heart shape and then "Prestwood" outside it. While I was drawing Prestwood I thought it almost looked as if the heart had roots and branches growing out of it. That gave me the idea to add "PIB" as jewels growing out from the heart's branches. It wasn't until I finished that I thought the center in each Fife's flowers also looked like little jewels and the white sections as little thorns...hence the little quote I added below my tile ;-)
This tile was done with black and brown Micron Pens, a white gel Pen for highlights and Crayola Coloured Pencils. I just bought this Crayola color pencils, and I have to say I really liked the end result. I found that specially in Zentangle's tiny spaces they allowed me to add more colors on top of each other and still keeping a translucent effect which is specially nice while coloring gems, as oppose to the Prismacolor pencils that I normally use, which after adding several colours on top of each other it can become waxy and matte. Can't believe the nice result for their inexpensive price! I am loving them ;-)
I hope you like this tile and come back often. As always if there is anything else from this post that you would like to use in your own drawings please feel free to do so.
