August and September 2014 Theme: Black, White & Gold in Zentangle
I am deviating away from the black tiles to share with you how I use the Gold in combination with black ink and graphite shading, so yes it fits into the black, white and gold theme this month.
I have found that enhancing a White Zentangle tile with shading and gold is a very interesting combination. The special quality of this combination makes the Gold Metallic Gelly Roll a must have in your arsenal of Zentangle tools.
The below tile had large black voids that turned out to be too large and felt boring. It occurred to me that perking up the tile with gold may be just the trick to counter balance the large boring spaces with a touch of glitz. I am quite pleased with the results.
I was asked to give a Zentangle presentaion to a Soul Collage group and found not only did I add tangles to the front of the card with Gold Metallic, I also Tangled the back of the card that I tied to front with the gold dots and borders. I used the Sakura Black Gold Shadow Gelly Roll Pen, this particular pen has a lovely olive toned gold that I find very appealing.

In the Southern California area, I take SoulCollage classes from Chantel Zimmerman.
She also enriches your creativity and SoulCollage journey with journaling.
