Zentangle® African Artist, Drupe, and an Inchie

The Diva Challenge #247 is a Use My Tangle. This tangle, African Artist, comes from CZT Tina-Akua Hunziker. I used a Renaissance tile, red Sharpie Ultra Fine Line pen, watercolor pencils for shading and white charcoal pencil for highlights. I added Printemps and Beadlines.
The focus tangle from Square One, Facebook, is Drupe.
And, the prompt word from Every Inchie Monday is Angel. Can you guess that I love food? Here is a giant plate full of angle hair pasta! Yum!


Thanks so much for your visit. I truly enjoy reading your comments!

    1. Thank you, Kia. I could have just put up a photo of me since my mom always called me "angel", but only when she was annoyed with me LOL!

  3. I love your pink African Artist tile and your sort of warp-y Drupe, but the best is the Angel Hair Pasta! Now I know what to make for dinner tonight!

    1. I tried it the original way, Betsy, and decided it was just a bit too busy for my taste. Thank you.

  6. Love your take on your Inchie. The Renaissnce tiles are just as dramatic as the black and white tiles. Your Drupe tile is cool, I've been warmly welcomed by the Square One group.

  7. Jean, I love your African Artist!! The pink shading is wonderful and somehow the beads at the bottom hold it all together. Lovely Square One!! :) :)

    1. Thank you, Diane. Evidentially, when you put red on tan, you get pink. Yes, I should know that LOL!

  8. We've been in Spain for a week. I would love some pasta, but in these parts, it's mostly potatoes and rice. Great use of color in your African Art Diva Challenge tile. I had some trouble getting the hang of African Artist, but it's growing on me.

    1. I went to Europe as a teen, and the food was disappointing. I remember that in Spain, they served us eggs floating in a red sauce. Yuck! But, the ice cream everywhere was amazing, so that's what I ate for 5 weeks. LOL!
