As we walk on this path, I am reminded to spend time with others I’m walking here with. The time will go so fast and we will, literally, be scattered to all the corners of the earth. But we will remember each other, and this special time here.

This beautiful, rosemary stem is drawn using the tangle Verdigogh. Rosemary is for rememberance. I wanted to add something to it, but I couldn’t decide what. Then I realized the Renaissance frame would be perfect. So this frame was drawn on July 3, 2018 and I set the tile from the CZT 30 Seminar in the center of it. I wanted to honor, treasure and remember my time there.

The clear glaze pen was used in the narrow sections of the frame. It adds a subtle raised area while making the paper appear slightly darker. The shiny ink also balances with the gold, metallic perfs in the center of the border.

Zentangle drawn on an Official Zentangle Bijou tile and an Official Zentangle Renaissance tile using a black and brown, Pigma Micron pens, white Sakura Gelly Roll, clear Sakura Glaze and gold, metallic Sakura gel pens. Shading done with graphite pencil.

Tangles: Dingbatz Mooka Tipple Verdigogh
