Are you a leaf peeper? I heard this term a few years ago and almost fell off my chair laughing. My mom says I’ve loved fall leaves since I was old enough to notice them, but we didn’t have a fancy name for it back then.
This is my favorite leaf picture so far this year. (I know you’ve seen this before, but I still love it 🙂 It is now a poster sized print hanging on my fridge. Making posters with iPhone pictures makes me happy.
This week’s Diva challenge is to tangle fall leaves. As often is the case, I jumped the gun and did my pretty fall leaf last week. Since that one was a ZIA, I decided to keep this one a more true Zentangle. I challenged myself to use only a brown Micron on my Renaissance tile.
Boy, was it hard not to grab my white charcoal pencil to add highlights! Sometimes the elegance of limits can be fun. Sometimes not. But, I stuck to my guns and had to be creative with my finishing touches. Here it is done.
Or at least, done for now. Don’t you love how many shades of brown you can get with one pen on the Renaissance paper? I find it simply fascinating.
