Why is she going on about this you may ask? Well, I'll tell you. This week Laura over at The Diva's challenge, accepted a challenge from a young man named Daniel, who at 12, is already an outspoken supporter of the LGBT community. He thought that a challenge in support of National Coming Out Day would be a good idea and I do too. Congratulations to Daniel for putting out the challenge and to Laura for hosting what can be a controversial issue. Thank you both for this wonderful idea. It has been a great challenge for me.

I started this challenge with the center design of zinger. Zinger is a new tangle for me and I have really fallen in love with it making it in the round like this. I have done it several times on the Shrink Art Necklaces that I make and on ornaments as well. The black and white section is a variation of several different tangles (H2O Lilly and Mathura for example) but is kept very plain and simple. I wanted the section to add interest but not overwhelm the piece by adding too much pattern or color. The outer layer is Wud. I love the way the pattern looks in black and white but after I drew it in, I decided to color it like a rainbow. ROY G BIV is my new BFF. Hee Hee! I used Sharpie markers for the center and a Sharpie Pen for the drawing on this one. I didn't have a rainbow of microns so I broke into the sharpies. I drew this on bristol board as well. The colors were added to Wud with Prismacolor color pencils and the shading done with Prismacolor markers. The whole thing is on 9" square paper.
This zendala personally makes me happy and I am so proud of it. I hope it makes you happy as well. I have set this image up on zazzle to be available on a variety of products. It isn't quite available at this time but it should be by this time tomorrow. You can check them out here.
Thanks again to Daniel and Laura.
