This week's Diva Challenge was to be inspired by your favorite drink, in whatever form that took. One of my favorite drinks is a cherry French soda, a coffee house specialty that has cherry soda and half and half so I decided to use a hand died pink tile background and tangle it with red pen, and white Jelly roll and shaded it with red colored pencil. Ouila! Cherry French Soda!
Where did the hand dyed pink tile come from you ask? Why I dyed it myownself at a class at The Zentangle Expo this weekend ! It was held at The Monona Terrace Convention Center on Lake Monona in Madison. It was an overcast day but there still was an amazing view!
There was a gallery of beautiful work from the teachers and attendees.
You'll want to biggify those. Beautiful, beautiful pieces!
And I took 5 classes; Using Watercolors, Hand Dying Backgrounds, Shading, and Zentangling on objects. Here are some seashells that the teacher did. She is a calligrapher as well.
I can't wait to do some of my own and leave them on the beach face down for others to find!
