For this week's as a celebration of the arrival of Spring at Adele's Bruno "It's a String Thing #188" we had an interesting String almost like a Pinwheel and very organic patterns to use. The patterns include "Fricle" by Julie Evans, and "Zinger and Fescue" both from Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas founders of Zentangle.
Here is my tile:
The patterns we had are so beautifully organic and normally I would have used them randomly in a more botanical setting, but for some reason the Pinwheel String kept calling me, so I let go and didn't force it , I followed the Pinwheel String creating a kind of order and repetition with the patterns.
I used brown and black Micron pens, red chalk pencil, graphite and a white gel pen. I realized later I probably should have use more spring-like colors! oh well...although now that I think about it I saw yesterday the first Ladybug of this year, so maybe orange-reddish tones are not so bad after all ;-)
I hope you like it and come back often! As always if there is anything from this post that you would like to try yourself on your own work please feel free to do so.
