Zentangle® Rixty, an Inchie, and a new pencil bag!

As promised, just a shortie this week. (I went and took two more Copic workshops, so I was busy with coloring.)

 I made myself the cutest little mini book (about 3 x 4") out of H2O painted watercolor paper and decided to do the Diva Challenge Rixty on a double page spread. I just love the look of those watercolors.
Rixty , Zinger, Reef, Fescu, Springkle
The inchie this week, from Every Inchie Monday, had a prompt of "head". I thought of the phrase "heads up" and thought it would be nice to warn everyone of the following:






And, who can resist another pencil bag? Especially a pencil bag that is begging to be tangled. It came with the typewriter and I used the Gel roller from Pentel and the Fabriano for the grey.

    1. Thank you, Lonetta. I am having a lot of fun trying to come up with different solutions to the word of the week for the inchies. I really am an enabler, as most of us that love anything passionately do, I suppose.

    1. Well, thank you Annie. I'm glad to hear that I make you smile. When I was young and asked what I would like to do when I grew up, I actually said that I wished "to make someone happy." Maybe I'm finally reaching that goal with art.

    1. Thanks, Linda. Look for those water colors at a hobby Lobby, Michaels, and Joann's. Expensive if you don't use your 50% off coupon though.
