WOYWW and the Diva's Challenge...

Lots going on at our place with my dear son, Jordan, visiting for a week. We just got back from an overnight trip to Minneapolis to send him on his way back to Texas. SO, I wanted to do some zentangling for this week's Diva's Challenge which is What is on My Workdesk this week!

I've been using my computer to look up the zentangle patterns for this week's challenge which is to do something "Outside the Box".


So, I dispensed with the zentangling box all together and made this woodland scene using various tangles. This resembles something I made a while back, but I really had fun doing this! I will add color later. Probably colored pencil since my pen isn't waterproof! For some reason, Alium reminds me of the dark patches on birch trees. It didn't turn out as well as I would have liked, but that's the chance you take when you draw directly on paper with pen! :D

To enjoy browsing what's on other people's desks this week go to the Stampin' Grounds!

For more outside the box zentangles jump on over to The Diva's page!

Time to retire for the night. Shalom and good-night to all you artistes out there!
