“Beads of courage” is een heel mooi initiatief en dat is ook deze challenge! Alhoewel ik erg veel van waterverf hou, heb ik dit niet kunnen gebruiken op mijn tile. Ik ben deze week op bezoek bij één van de zonen in Antwerpen. De meeste van mijn ” Zentanglespullen” liggen thuis in de Ardennen.  Vandaar dat ik alleen met pennen en kleurpotloden gewerkt heb. Op de achtergrond zie je mijn nieuwe tangle Paravan.

Beads of courage is a very nice project and so is this challenge! I really like to draw with watercolor but I couldn’t use it on this tile.  I’m spending a few days in Antwerp with my eldest son. Most of my  “Zentanglestuff ” is at home in the other part of the country. So I used only pens and pencils. Behind you can see my new tangle Paravan.

    Your tile is stunning! I love your new tangle used as a background. I have been practicing it and hope to be able to draw it well enough to show it off soon. Your beads are so vibrant that they pop up from the page. Stunning!
