Diva Weekly Challenge #125: Use My Tangle – Birdie Feet
The first Monday of the month, the Diva chooses a tangle and challenges everyone to use it in a Zentangle or ZIA. This month it’s Birdie Feet, created by Owl Loving April. The step-outs can be found on Flickr. ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/owllovingapril/6380350569/in/photostream/)
I used String 59 as a base for this week’s Challenge. The chosen pattern ended up not being the most prominent focus of my ZIA, but I’m pleased with the overall results. Here it is before color and shading.
I drew this ZIA on off-white card stock, with a Micron .01 pen.
This ZIA is colored with fine-line pens, Primacolor pencils, gel pens and a white pen for high lights. The tangles chosen are: Birdie Feet (criss-crossing the center of the page), by Owl Loving April; Tortuca (top left), an official Zentangle® by Maria Thomas; Retro (top right), by Elena Hadzijaneva; Zedbra (center), by Margaret Bremner, CZT; Sand Swirl (bottom left); Trimonds (center bottom) by Jane Monk, CZT; Sundo (bottom right) by Jane MacKugler, CZT; Rouche (var.) (middle right) by Rose Brown; and XYZ (var.) (across lower part of the page), an official Zentangle by Maria Thomas.
