I am The Diva Challenge #193: Overflowing Abundance: Trio, Huggins and XYP


This week's challenge is to use three tangles, Trio, Huggins and XYP.  I decided to use the Thanksgiving theme because I thought that Huggins would create a great basket weave for a cornucopia.  This, of course, is obviously a Zentangle Inspired Art, not a Zentangle.

I used grey paper (6" x 8" ) and Micron Pigma pens in .005 and.05.  I used white, peach and terra cotta Prismacolor colored pencils for shading.
