Zentangle® a Stacker, W2, and an Inchie

Crescent Moon-Msst- Inner Aura
This week over at I Am the Diva Challenge, guest poster, Paula Bramante, CZT, gave us a very interesting challenge this week. Just a bit complicated to explain it all, but do check out the post. I chose to do a stacker. I love the repeated pattern stacks that come from Cindy Angiel over at The Rainbow Elephant. I also love rocks and stones and do collect ones that speak to me.  
I used a tag and a brown Sharpie, Microns in brown and sepia, sepia Conte pencil, Pitt Pastel, and Dylusion Inks in Vintage Photo and Rusty hinge.

















 
The focus tangle for Square One this week was W2. I added Shattuck and Quib.
Every Inchie Monday had a prompt word of "texture". Being a mixed media artist, I love texture and have a huge box filled with items to make texture. I chose some sequin waste to do identical inchies. One on black and one on white. I used Gellatos to color some Molding paste and push through the sequin waste to make texture. If you've never seen the messes I can make, do take a peek at my art journaling blog

Thank you so much for stopping by. I love reading your comments!

    1. Thanks, Freebird. I hadn't heard of it before I got into mixed media. It comes with all different shapes in the cut out parts and really is fun to use to push texture through or to just cut up and add to a piece for interest.

    1. Maybe it reminds you of cliffs? Interesting observation, Kreanimo :)

  12. I love your stones on the tag! The colors you used are so....earthy! :-) Your W2 with Quib is adorable. You managed to make W2's very buttoned-up grid work so well with the free wheeling Quib in such a clever way! It's like a bubbly, cheery girl pulling some stuffy old guy out on the dance floor.

  13. I really enjoyed looking at all of your tiles, but the cairns one is my favorite. Love the choice of colors and the tall stack - it's definitely ceremonial, reminding me of something you might find out in the desert.

    1. Thank you, Donna.I didn't really think of that at the time, but I do live in the desert and maybe I was inspired by the gorgeous rock formations in some of the areas around the city.
