I didn’t want to just do one big gourdgeous, so opted on a couple smaller ones. At first I thought I’d do a florz background but then I thought I’d look for some tangle that would look like corn stalks and do an outdoor looking tile . . . I KNOW . . . Zentangle is not supposed to be representational . . . but . . . Anyway, as you can see, I opted not to go through with that plan. Well, maybe more accurately said, I couldn’t find a corn stalk looking tangle. I thought about using really tall fescu but didn’t like that idea.
Then I thought about using Msst and making it look like they were sitting outside. I added a little puddle on the lower left corner.
I don’t really like the tops of the gourdgeous tangle. It is a bit thick to my liking. I think it will take some practice to keep my lines close enough together to keep the tops thin enough.
I showed this to my kids and husband, as I usually do, when I finished drawing it. From across the room, Tiffany said my gourdgeous looked like snails. Thankfully, Sean saw them for what they are though. Mike too saw the gourds.
Thanks to the one that clicked the like heart on last week’s post and to Maggibee, Ilse, Annemarie, and Paula for taking the effort to leave a comment and for your wonderful encouragement. I appreciate it!
Until next time, God bless,
