" More Morris " - Weekly Challenge #19

This week's challenge from the Diva is to "create a tile or Zentangle Inspired piece using the William Morris technique of light over dark".


Seems like this process resulted in a very "busy" art piece for me.  Perhaps that is the intention of this technique?  Don't know.  I am not familiar with the work of William Morris... but his technique is something to further explore.

And the process was quite meditative.  Looks like I threw in a 'floatfest' tangelation here and there (Carole Ohl).  H-m-m-m.  Don't remember that being part of the plan.  But I think it works...!?!?!
ZIA - "More Morris" - 3.5" sq. white tile; Sakura Micron black # 005, 01, 08; Sakurs gel pen white; Prismacolor white pencil

Happy tangling!


  1. Lovely! So lush and evocative; like a garden waiting the passing of a torrential thunderstorm to spring into vibrant life...

  2. Oooh, that is beautiful, and with a lot of detail! Yes, I think the floatfest tanglation works well in this one :D

  3. This is lovely! Busy? yes, but I think that works very well for this tile.

  4. Beautiful love all the details and the parquet effect in the background such a lovely touch. 'fraid this challenge was beyond me this week. XOXO Zoe

  5. This is spectacular! Love it!
