Happy St. Patrick's Day in Zentangle®, Some Oof, and an Inchie

The Diva Challenge #209 was to use green. You know I love a challenge and like to try to think outside of the box. Not today. The gray cells are not in motion. So, I actually did the first think I thought of, a Shamrock. I kept it simple with just Verve and Betweed. I used two different Sharpie pens in green, a Koi coloring brush pen for the surround, shading with Fabrico gray and dots with a white gel pen.




Facebook's Square One tangle of the week was Oof to which I added Jetties and Fescu.
And, for Every Inchie Monday, the prompt word was "nail". Again, keeping it simple.









Thank you for dropping by and thank you if you leave a comment. I appreciate all of you :)

    1. Thanks, Zoe. I love the look of the Fabrico pen on the Zentangle tiles. It's soft and not as messy as the pencil can be.

  14. I like your green Shamrock-tile for the diva-challenge. And the tile for the Square One is amazing - just so wonderful shading and contrast!
    Your inchie is funny ;-) I just have no idea for my inchie this week...

    1. Sandra, I often just google the word to see what strikes my fancy or inspires me. Never any pressure though. You can always just glue a small nail on a one inch piece of paper!

    1. Thanks, Suzanne. I kind of liked the way the color fanned out like a sunburst too.
