I have been playing with Aquafleur last week ( I followed Emily Houtz how to) I found her how to, to be simple and easy to follow - I like drawings and I avoid watching videos whenever I can.
These are my interpretations where I deliberately missed adding the little tails on the 'ribbons'
from there I went on to do this red number
...... and then Rick and Maria posted their version of how to draw 'Aquafleur' (it is one of their tangles and is now on the official list).
Well, now I am confused, as when I drew from their step out, I cannot seem to make it flow naturally and it looks very different to Emily's. When you examine both versions they do have the same features, it just looks way different. So now I tried it their way and this is what I come up with
And then the Diva Challenge was to use Aquafleur - so out came my pencils again and this is what I came up with - like blobs sliding down a wall :) its done on brown cardstock.
Still not completely happy, I looked at the 'Zentangle' website and checked out Rick and Marias's examples . I do love how they are so soft and fluid like - me and organic don't go hand in hand together - My style is so rigid, and every now and then I try to do organic - I need lots of practice. lol
A brainstorm hit me - how about a pillow effect - and yep this is how it panned out (I used Copic markers for colour)
I do like this, even though its not technically a 'Zentangle' and more of a ZIA.
thank you for your visit. I hope I made sense as I am a little tired and can hardly keep my eyes open :)
