This is a big week at chez Letourneau. Alexa is captaining a team for GISHWHES and doing all kinds of wild and crazy things. (If any of my friends are near Beijing, Belgium, or is an astronaut willing to do a favor for charity, please contact me ASAP) and I am getting ready for the annual HOOT convention next week. I’m teaching two classes: one on Renaissance Zentangle and another on alcohol inks. I am also doing a free demo on intuitive art combining the two. (Tuesday at 5 pm at the Greater Columbus Convention Center if you are nearby.)
With that in mind, I thought to try this week’s Diva Challenge tangle ‘aloha’ on a ceramic tile.
I’ve read that you can use Sharpies with alcohol inks because they are also alcohol based, but I had not tried until this morning. So, I tried drawing the tangle with my new ultra fine Sharpie.
Blah. So I tangled more with more colors.
Still blah. So, I sprayed alcohol and blew the ink and then added more colors and blew some more and then this happened:
Both members of Team Gishmongers loved it, so here you go. Wish us both luck getting everything done!
