I Am The Diva Challenge 176: BYOB
This week’s challenge is to B.Y.O.B.—Bring Your Own Beverage—to the tangling session and utilize it in our art. From coffee to Kool Aid, cola to cabernet, the choice is ours! Cocoa, tea, Gatorade, chocolate shake, kale smoothie, cranberry juice—surely something will quench our creativity!
I decided to use coffee - in my case, instant coffee. I used a chip of creamy mat board and applied the coffee with a paint brush in circles. Unfortunately, my coffee wasn't strong enough, so I made another cup, a lot stronger and once more applied it with a brush in solid circles.
Then I applied blobs of ink and blew at it with a straw to form a loose abstract pattern. I then filled in areas with a Micron Pigma black pen (.005) The final touch was to do some designs in the black areas with a creamy Prismacolor colored pencil. The Zentangle is approx 6" x 5".
