Sea Waves. She watched the waves carefully, trying to see how the odd liquid could look so solid yet still propel the Shell Ship through the coral forest. The sea had such an odd texture she wasn’t even sure it WAS a liquid at all! Zentangle drawn on Strathmore Vellum Bristol using a black, Micron pen. Shading done with graphite pencil.

Butterfly bones. Every time I look at this tile, I feel like it‘s a drawing of the remains of a butterfly or a moth. This tile includes one of my original tangles: Barbd.

Island influence. I saw the movie Moana recently. I think it is one of my favorite Disney Princess movies of all time. For this tile, I went through my step-outs and chose lots of tangles that I thought represented Pacific Islander styles. Zentangle drawing done with Micron pen on Strathmore Vellum Bristol.

It‘s a party… In outer space Every time I look at this tile, the central motif reminds me of one of those crepe paper party poppers. You know the kind where you pull the central handle and it “pops” and then confetti comes out? They often have a small toy and a party hat inside the central tube. The other thing that comes to mind is some kind of weird alien swimming through space.
