Dex and Semi-transpanency

Sandra Strait is so generous to the whole Zentangle community. She does reviews of just about any tool, paper, or notebooks you might want to use for your Zentangle Inspired Art. She spends the time looking up all kinds of contests and free tutorials that might interest you. She also has contributed many tangles and done wonderful tutorials. Today, I wanted to try out her tutorial for semi-transparency that is on Tangle patterns, and combine it with the weekly challenge from the Diva to use Dex as a monotangle. I really had a lot of fun making this "bubble" and, do check out Sandra's Blog.

  5. OMG! There are so many amazing entries already but so far yours is my favorite. I had my problems with Dex and didn't like the pattern at all. But your semi transparent approach makes it so cool.

    1. I am not fond of patterns that require precision to look good. I always "mess" up. Since there are no mistakes in Zentangle, I tend to shy away from ones that seem to need to be mistake free to look good. So, I was happy to find some way to not have to do too much of it :) Thanks for your compliment and I liked what you did too.
