When I was in Italy with Brenda Swenson we were working on doing a negative space painting. Unfortunately, the paper I was working on had very little sizing and turned into a blotter making it impossible for me to move the paint around. So I started over on another paper but of course I couldn't just throw out the work I had already done.
Hmmmm?…..what could I do with the first set of leaves?
Zentangle to the rescue! My ZenFriend, Linda liked the fuzzy edges of the leaves so I outlined them just inside the shape of leaves to leave a little glow around them. I used some variations of fescu to fill in some of the back ground. It was fun to re-work a non-working piece into something I like.
