i am the diva, CZT-Weekly Challenge #238:"UMT-Tri-Bee"


i am the diva, CZT    Weekly Challenge #238: "UMT-Tri-Bee by: Beate Winkler,CZT

The first Monday of each month is Use My Tangle at the diva's challenge site. This time around we're using the tangle Tri-Bee by: Beate Winkler, CZT, a friend of Laura's. 
When I looked at the step outs for this tangle it called out to me to be a chrysanthemum which also called for me to color it. Of course, the leaves are not a tangle but this would be considered a ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) tile. 
After I drew the tangle and leaves I pulled out my Copic markers and one PrismaColor marker to begin the coloring and shading process. As with so many art things I know I'm a self taught artist. I have a lot of books and have watched a ton of YouTube videos and even taken a couple of online classes in Mixed Media, but as for in person classes it always seems something in my general living world takes persistence over my art world. So with all that said I'm not wonder woman with shading and the use of Copic markers this would be just what is pleasing to my eye. Hope it's pleasing to all your eyes also since I'm posting for the world to see.
I'm on my way to enter this tile and gloryoskey (a made up word) it's actually on the day the challenge started not sliding under the last minute wire. LOL
There's room for lots of entrants so click on the link above and join in the fun.
Thanks, Beate for a very versatile tangle.

Happy Creating--

I agree, it is just calling out to be a yellow chrysanthemum. You have really done it justice and the colouring is gorgeous.

So perfect to use this to create a chrysanthemum for this time of the year. It would be such a nice addition to a fall card.
