There is no Diva Challenge this week because Laura’s kids are headed back to school and they are running around getting things together for that and no time available for the challenge. Thankfully I had seen that Square One: Purely Zentangle had Blt Joos as its focus tangle for the week and I always like Btl Joos, not that I use it much but I do like it.
Then I checked out the tangle of the day over on Pattern-Collections, as well as their string of the week. I decided I could use both. So here is string 49 and Shellmound. I added some striping and sparkle to shellmound and some sparkle to btl joos as well.
I did lose track of which sections should be blackened on Btl Joos a couple of times and then decided to put dots on the ones that were to be blackened to keep it from happening again. Thankfully, I think I was able to lighten it enough with white pen over the ‘opportunity for creativity’ and then shade over it.
Here is the final. I used my 6B pencil for the darkest shading, to give it some good depth.
I hope you have a great week. Thanks for stopping by. And an extra special thanks for any comments you leave, they always encourage me so.
Until next time, God bless,
