Finally got around to taking pics of the two plates I had finished . The zentangles usually fit into the scanner and that is so much easier than digging out the camera and then transferring over to the computer. So large objects take a while to make it to the blog.
I decided to fill the first plate all the way out to the edges and my daughter loved it. So I did the same with the second. The blue one was done while Storm Sandy was trying to do it's worst. My little table I work on is in the south side of the house and gets the best light, so I could keep on working while it poured and blew outside and ripped down the power lines.
Then I finally got to doing my challenge for Bright Owl. I hope she is catching her breath and able to play a bit real soon. That new job is enough challenge for the moment, eh???
And I love putting a pattern alllll the way around to pull it all together, and this one stumped me on that too. So I started with a simple line and darned if I didn't stop right there!!! That seemed to be just enough.
Found out I could push the colored pencil shading in the same way as a black pencil. Didn't know if the color was soft enough to smudge, and got a nice surprise to see that it did. Took a bit more push, but it worked.
