Life saver. She tossed the ring out into the ocean, not knowing if it would work. This was no ordinary water. It was a sea of freezing chemicals that a human could not survive.

Distress Inks. This tile is a combination of techniques beginning with Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Spray Stains, and markers. In addition, several other products were used including Polychromos colored pencils, a variety of gel pens, Sharpies, and Zig markers. The techniques used are from Eni Oken‘s ebook, “3D Tangle: Tangling over Distressed Tiles.” While this technique still involves drawing tangles on a small piece of paper, it is far from the original Zentangle Method.
