Fabriano Tiziano in Aqua #Zentangle #ZentangleInspiredArt #ZIA

I bought a 22x 30 sheet of Fabriano Tiziano in a lovely Aqua color at Michaels, and cut it down so I could make a journal of 4×4 pages.

I used this page to lift off the last of some color from a Gelli plate print, and then tangled using a Pigma Micron pen.  The official Zentangle tiles are made using Fabriano Tiepolo, so this is a similar surface, though not quite the same.

The Occasional ATC #ATC # #Watercolor #Zentangle

For a couple of years, I was heavy into ATC trading, and did hundreds of them (I never do things in half measures, lol).

Eventually, I got tired of the small format, keeping track of trades, and paying postage so, as most  do, I moved on–to Zentangle.  Occasionally, though I find an unused ATC card, and decided to use it.

This makes me think of a temple or adobe-type dwelliings.  Maybe the building in the background is where the temple staff live.
