Renaissance Tiles

Renaissance (tan) tiles offer a chance to play with sepia tones and chalk accents, I like the look, but I don’t often choose Renaissance tiles to work on. So this time, I took on the Diva’s Challenge #304 to tangle with Waybop on a Renaissance tile. I like Waybop. It is a great tangle with so many possibilities.  Although, I am still getting my “sea legs” drawing it. It takes concentration! For the background, I added a bit of striping and Diva Dance.

On the Zentangle blog, Maria recently posted  “On a clear day…” explaining how she sealed Renaissance tiles with a clear coating. (http://zentangle.blogspot.com.) If you have a moment, take a look at the before and after – the “deepening” effect is very interesting! (I may try this next time:)

Happy tangling!

Art therapy, it’s a good thing:)

Getting lost in creative pursuits so your mind/body can find a pleasant and peaceful, creative place/space is one of my favorite things. For this zendala, I kept the tangle choices simple…

  • Printemps, striping, a touch of Tipple and Shattuck.  

I like how the center striping adds a 3D effect and when I was done, I was relaxed!  Check out more fun “heart art” on the Diva’s Challenge link 303: http://iamthedivaczt.blogspot.com
