Recently I have started to add color to my Travelling Tangles. Sometimes it was because the tile I received alredy had color, and other times it was because the tile needed some color to enhance it.
I use koi markes in various colors, Derwent graphitints and water colored pencils which can be smoother with a water brush. Other times I use colored pencils and then use a tortillon dipped in oderless paint thinner to spead and soften the colors. Here are some of the tiles I have recently colored.
This tile from a friend in Texas used koi markes and white charcoal pencil.
This tile from the United Kingdom used prismacolored pencil and oderless pain thinner to make the orbs and the subtle yellow of the shasta.
This tilehad vibrant color when I recieved it. I used koi markers, but only outlined the items I wished to color just making is a more subtle color, than the original color.
I have been tangling since 2015. I found out about Zentangle from a colleague who had taken a class. Unfortunately, the person with whom they took the class, lived a considerable distance from me. Searching the Zentangle Website I found a Certified Zentangle Teacher much closer to me. After classes with her, for the best part of a year. She showed me that this was an art form I could feel comfortable with and find the creativity that I didn't think was there. The rest they say is history. In April 2017, I traveled to Providence RI to attend the training to become a certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT). I am privileged to be CZT 26.
