The Diva's challenge asks us to use purple in our tangling process this week. I do love the color purple and since it is the color that represents Artoo's disease, this one is for you Artoo!
Also, congrats are in order for the Diva. She is up for nominated as one of the most fascinating blogs in 2011 in the teaching blog category and I'm definitely putting in my 2 cents on the voting! Her site has been a wonderful resource that has really helped keep my creative juices flowing. It has also allowed me to view and be inspired by the wonderful works created by other Zentangle enthusiasts around the world. You go Laura!
I began with just purple but some other tones worked themselves into my ZIA. I was using Sandy Bartholemews Yoga for the Brain as inspiration to spur my creative endeavors on the first. Hollibaugh, Cootie, Etcher, and Screen.
I'm not usually a grid/structure gal when it comes to my tangling. The more organic, fluid shapes resonate for me. So these two were my attempt to (1) add a little color, and (2) work on my grid/structured tangles.
They are grid is still very unstructured and loose but it's my attempt, and I'm pleased with the results.
My second version was "enhanced" with Photoshop to add a touch of purple here and there! Ballenchain, Knightsbridge, Cadent, Screen, and some grid play.
