I Am The Diva Challenge #186: Leaves in Zentangle Inspired Art

The Diva's challenge this week is to use leaves in our tangle.  I decided to use a watercolor wash with the ink tangles and create some Zentangle Inspired Art!

The piece is 12" x 9" and is done on Canson's 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.  I used Micron-Pigma ink pens .005 and.03, and QoR Watercolors from Golden Paints.

Oh, I like this Challenge Tile so much. So lovely. Beautiful color accents enhance and support the delicate patterns in your graceful leaf strings. I really like the ghost tangles in the background. Creates a very dimensional Piece. Wonderful, Barbara.
