This week’s diva challenge is to “spill” some coffee or some such liquid, on a tile and then tangle it after it dries. The Shading Zentangle facebook group is focusing on distressed ink tiles for the month of April. I managed to get a package of three different color stains for 40% off the regular price at Michael’s the other week. So rather than spill some coffee, I opted to spray some stain.
This is my first attempt at something like this I had three colors so I did three tiles, combining two on each. My favorite is one with blue and green but it still had a splotch of wet stain and I didn’t want to mess it up. Thus I did not scan that one.
Here is are scans of the three tiles I did.
I chose the first one to tangle on. It is my first ever, attempt at distressed spray ink tiles and the first time to attempt shading or highlighting with colored pencils. I did not do that great of a job of shading but I did attempt to highlight a bit. Then I went overboard on the white gel pen. Oh well! It’s a decent first attempt.
I used Joki, Tipple, Zinger, and Henna Drum. I did add a bit of pink colored pencil around the large zinger but you cannot really see it in this scan. I really wish I hadn’t added so many white dots everywhere! Ugh.
Once again, many thanks for taking the time to comment. I appreciate any suggestions you have for me in this new endeavor.
Until next time, God bless,
