I love this fairy, she has such a wonderful feel. The frame and the pink glow are digital accents used for posting on the blog, and are not included on the original. She is approximately 4.25 x 5.5 in size and she is all original in pen/ink, marker, and pencil. She is initialed on the front, and signed and dated on the back with all the media information.
This was a lot of fun! Considering I live on a sailboat, I don't have a printer, and I don't own a protractor of any kind to reproduce the template properly....so I drew it raw. Albeit it lacks in symmetry, but all in all I think it was a success, but I am going to acquire some other tools before the next Zendala dare, haha.
This week's challenge is a duo-tangle using Auraknot and Bunzo as the only two patterns in the drawing. I love both of those patterns as one seems to pop out and the other seems to sink into infinity. I chose to do mine in all red to add to the excitement of those wormy Bunzos crawling all over the pretty star. Yes, I am a sci-fi fan. Ok, now on to the Zendala challenge!
Found this cool tangle on Fairy Tangles by Norma Burnell. I see it a lot in her work and it is so delicate and pliable. I think I will use it later on today in my ATC for Grumbacher. The theme is florals and this should be a nice addition to that theme.
When I first started this challenge I had no idea where I was going with it. It is a lot of fun and it surprises you with the depth that develops as you draw it. In the end the composition of the patterns reminds me of a canoe carrying exotic plants to an island somewhere....so funny how an Ink Fiddle gathers a life of it's own. Are you up for a challenge? Go see the Diva!!!
....to have been presented by Lyn Phillips with this awesome R that emulates a Robin. Her art is sublime, awe-inspiring, and extraordinary in every way. Her muse is Mother Earth, the patterns that fill every living thing on the planet, as well as those patterns that are created by happenstance by those living things. She is acutely aware of design and pattern every waking moment, everywhere she goes, every day of her life. I am honored, to say the least, to have been given such a great gift. Thank you Lyn, from the bottom of my little Robin heart.
It has been a while since I posted in my beloved blog. Ink has now absorbed every waking moment that I am not working or doing household stuff. This handsome Valentine heart evolved yesterday and it was an enjoyable exercise in pattern and red, black, and white.
