The Diva’s Zentangle challenge #140

Below, my take on this weeks challenge bij The Diva. We have to make a ‘monotangle’, pointilism style. I know my entry is not a zentangle, because I got inspired to draw flowers. I’m drawn to flowers the last couple of weeks :-). It took about three hours to draw. Except for the background, everything is a dot.
Size: 10,5 x 16 cm.
Materials: Artline Drawing System Pigment Ink (background), Stabilo Point 88, fine 0,4mm (flowers).

Size: 21 x 29,7 cm.
Materials: Artline Drawing System Pigment Ink, Letraset Promarkers and Flexmarkers



The Diva’s Zentangle challenge #138

This week’s challenge by The Diva is about getting inspired by stuff in your own home. Well, that was easy for me, I photographed my furniture and stuff for about an hour. I was surprised to find that much inspiration, enough for weeks ‘n’ weeks! I ended up using some decoration on an antique sewing machine, which is nearly faded, but still inspiring. So, this is what I came up with. I edited a bit on my computer, I only drew the left part and copied it to the right. I actually like drawing on my computer as well and I often combine the techniques.

I will probably recreate this design some time, but a bit cleaner, as I don’t like the crooked lines that much :-). For now, this will do.
