Zentangle - 'Tis the Season

This week, the Diva challenged us to do a piece or tile that represented our approach to the holidays. Christmas has always been very special to me as a time of family. Memories just flood the mind as scents, smells and visuals assault warm us. I immediately thought of a Christmas stocking because it's the little things that mean the most. I found a template online for a coloring book page that I used with my Copics and tangles to represent the JOY of the season:

    1. Thank you, Annette. I LOVE my Copics. Yes, they are expensive. I buy them one at a time with 40% off coupons. There are tons of free tutorials online on how to use them too. You could also get the Spectrum Noirs for a lot less, but I started with Copics (not to say I don't have the Spectrum Noirs and more LOL!!) I remind myself that I don't have any other bad habits though HAHA!
