DC#312 and #DistressedShader

iamthedivacztThis 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. ;)

#distressedshader ~ lifeofjoy.meI 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,

Michele ºÜº

  1. I like how delicate the tangling is. If you don’t like the contrast of the white dots, maybe adding a bit of white color pencil highlighting on some of the areas might help tie it all together? Just a thought.

  2. Looking at your tile makes me think you were doing a masterpiece. It is very artistically and visually pleasing. I like you work very much. What do you mean, “first attempt”? Looks like you have been doing this a lot. You seem to have it down very well.

  3. Ever since I came across Helen Williams’ Henna Drum adaptation I loved the pattern. Now your way of drawing it gave a reason to love Henna Drum even more. Love your tile, composition, color, and …. Henna Drum.
