Just add fish. This reminds me of the view into a nicely landscaped aquarium. I guess I still have OdySea on my mind! Zentangle drawn on Strathmore Vellum Bristol using a sepia, Micron pen. Tangles: Borbz Coral Pods Quabog Reef Roxi

Island influence. I saw the movie Moana recently. I think it is one of my favorite Disney Princess movies of all time. For this tile, I went through my step-outs and chose lots of tangles that I thought represented Pacific Islander styles. Zentangle drawing done with Micron pen on Strathmore Vellum Bristol.

Sometimes you just need a little color in your life! I recently got a set of Faber-Castel Polychromos Artist‘s Pencils. I‘ve always used Prismacolor pencils, but over the last few years the quality of the pencils themselves has gone down hill. So I was looking around to see if there was anything better and found the Polychromos. For starters, they are oil-based, instead of wax-based. That means the pencil lead is harder, and puts down a more vibrant layer very quickly.
