This week she is throwing us a color challenge. - Something Blue
At first I thought - wedding
Then I thought - sad. ... and then I thought about my poor dog Ginger who we had to have put to sleep a few weeks ago
And then I noticed something. I was thinking about "blue" I was not approaching this as I would a normal Zentangle.
hhhhhmmmmmmm.......... interesting isn't it?
Just by thinking of a color it changed the whole process.
I am not quite sure I like this. It turns Zentangle into drawing and we all know drawing can be scary.
Since this is not a normal Zentangle it becomes a ZIA...Zentangle Inspired Art. And It doesn't need to be on an official Zentangle tile....which is good because I have run out of those.
So I doodled my blues on a blank coaster.
And as I went along it became
"Storm at Sea"
Don't look too closely, I could not find my watercolor pencils so I used my oil color pencils and they did not play well with the coaster. I am going to work on this a bit more and submit another before the week ends.For all my non zen paper pals....if you have not yet tried Zentangle or if you are new like me, you owe it to yourself to check out The Diva's blog and the official Zentangle site.
