Making brown pop.

I‘ve tried tangling on various colored papers over the years, and sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn‘t. I cut a bunch of tiles from a pad of Saint-Armand Canal paper. They are various earthy, neutral colors. But the problem with the paper is that it is both very rough and very absorbant, so it‘s difficult to work with for Zentangles. But, every so often, I get brave and try it again.

As it turns out, I think this tile is mostly a win! In the past, what I think some of these tiles were missing was the white highlights. When I added them to this tile, it really popped, and I like it!
