Calligrapher and author of Zenspirations book, Joanne Fink demonstrates her Zentangle-inspired Dangles in this video, and she  teaches some of the creative ways you can embellish your art with dangle designs. Joanne is a master at design and she offers great tips on accenting with colors, creating dangles, adding swirls, as well as techniques for using Sakura Gelly Roll Moonlight Pens, and  Sakura Koi Watercolors. This video is very inspiring. 


My daily Ink Fiddle emerged as another three-point Celtic knot, and I played with adding some more patterns in this one. I am very pleased with the shiny heart in the middle. It took me a while to figure out how to draw this knot easily, but thanks to You Tube I got a very nice pointer from Patrick Gallagher on How to Draw a Freestyle Celtic Knot. If you are interested in these and want to try your hand at it watch Patrick's video, it is great!

Just a note on the Micron Pigma colored pens, they are very dark, and seem to get lost in a piece that contains black unless it is just a splash. I am going to order the Sakura Gelly Roll Metallics because they are much more vibrant when placed in and about black ink or on black paper. I recently saw a demonstration on these and they are very exciting!
