Divas Challenge #105 - UMT v. XIII: Dansk and Laura's Giveaway

Diva's challenge this week #105 is UMT Monday using Margaret Bremner's tangle Dansk. I used Dansk, Drupe, Hollibaugh, Printemp, Betweed, Tipple, BTL Joos steps, and stuff. It began with a Sunday art afternoon with my friend Jeanne. She had some acrylic pearlized ink that I tested as a background texture (string), letting that guide me as a starting point. As you can tell I chose not to follow the string completely, I then let the textures flow and talk to me - Don't your textures talk to you? - I digress, anyway, It was a fun exercise. A path flagged by BTL Jooz, add some steps, and the little environment is complete!

 A few Mooka and a pretty
little frame to center the particular
Zentangle tile I'm working on
I was also working on some small clipboards. Great for tangling on the go, I use them for portability and ease of travel with my tangling supplies. This small size ( (6' x 9") will easily fit in my bag/purse. These plain, smaller clipboards made of chipboard accept the micron pens well. With the darker background I found I needed to add lot's of touches of white with my trusty gel pen to make my tangles pop. I really love the results. I am going to finish them (this is my first) with a clear matt acrylic spray. That way they can be carted all over and still hold up. What do you think? Fun, huh?
