Laura Harms' little love bug of a baby is now home with his family after a bout in the hospital. We are all very happy about that. I loved seeing his sweet little face on her site this week. Now THAT is some inspiration!
Laura's challenge for this week is to use her new tangle, lovingly called, Artoo. This tangle holds lots of rhythm and flow. It was great fun!
I'm finding more and more that I love the shading process. Once the pen is down, I pick up the pencil and feel like I get to start all over again! The shading process gives me an opportunity to discover the shapes and layers that have emerged in the tangling process. Because I don't know where I'm headed in a Zentangle, I haven't planned for the shapes and layers, they have magically appeared. So the shading is when I go hunting for shapes and layers and play with 'drawing' them out.
Once this was finished, I saw it had a womb-like quality, with the Artoo blossoming out of it. The womb is still in front, connected to the edge of the tile (the outside world). And the Artoo is floating to the outside world as well.
Thank you, Laura for showing us more than just a fun tangle.
