Following The Diva's example, I too chose to do a zendala. I don't have any of the nifty tiles though, so I made my own. I used my circle cutter and cut out a 4" circle on watercolor paper. I then traveled over the Erin's site The Bright Owl, and pulled my template from Challenge #52. Being Earth Day, I wanted a template with circles in it and this one jumped out at me.
|4" watercolor paper, micron pens and pencil|
I really wasn't sure how it would turn out when I got started, but I am pleased with the final result. As is often the case, shading helped a lot. The blue and green felt really flat as I opted to not shade the patterns in the circles. Just the little shade on the edges where they overlap really popped them out and away from each other.
While I have your attention - if you've made it this far- I wanted to share the tile I did for last week's star theme. I did get it finished in time, but I did not blog it in time. So without chatter and more words, here are stars!
Thanks for stopping by!
