I've been Tanglin'

Hi all, I've done a bit of travel for work lately and sitting in a hotel room at night time my easy to carry art is to have a notebook and some pens and I do some doodling, or Zentangle inspired tangles.

The beauty of these is that you can have them anyway you want, up or down it doesn't matter

If you doodle while you're chatting on the phone?  Then this might be the sort of art for you.

Earth Mother

Hi there, I had another play around with my inktense pencils and another one of Teri Sherman's beautiful images  'Earth Mother' and I put the Driftwood Frame around her.

I used a silver Lyra watercolour pencil over the top of the gray inktense on the fame to give a slight luminescent quality to the frame.  Still working on technique, I think I'll have to do some research on these as I'd like to get more/better shading on the skin areas.

Hope you like her.

Snow drop fairy

I got some of Teri Sherman's latest Delicious Doodles digi images and this one, Snow Drop Fairy just seemed to be perfect for a journal page, I wanted to give my new Inktense pencils a try out.  My! they are awesome pencils to use, I found that I was probably a little heavy handed and I need to do lighter layers to deepen the colours.  Love these pencils, they are so creamy to apply and then the colour is so intense when you add the water.  Gorgeous!

I added some tangle pattern around the edge for a border and on the joining points is some liquid pearls which you can just make out.

Maybe need to practice with the pencils a bit more, but I'm very happy with the first attempt.
