Challenge # 70-Sepia

This week the Diva challenged the zentanglers to use color in our tiles.  Because so many haven't used any color, she suggested doing part of the zentangle with a Sepia tone...I always have trouble choosing which zentangle patterns to use so this time, I decided to use patterns beginning with "S" for sepia. There are so many patterns out there...(click on the "tangle patterns" badge that I have on the side)  I need help in making a decision!  It worked so well I may have to use this technique again!!!

Challenge # 70-Sepia
The tangles I used are Sonnenband, Striping, and Squid.  Sonnenband is from Simone Bischoff who is in Germany and means Sun Bands in English, and clicking on either of the other two patterns will take you to the same artist, Sandy Bartholemew...two different blogs with the instructions on how to draw these.

  6. The white spaces give your tile a wonderful intensity. I love the tangles in black and the framing in sepia. That pattern in the sepia is fantastic!
