Ebony and Ivory

This week's challenge is "Ebony and Ivory" or Black and White. A lot of folks have been playing with a lot of color lately so it's nice to see a lot of black and white. We were challenged to try to balance out the blacks and whites. I'm pleased with my result:

I used Camelia, Daggerly, Demi, Eye-Wa, Antidots and Henna Drum
As always, it's fun to play with patterns that I haven't used much. I also enjoyed playing with my own pattern, Henna Drum, creating both black and white flowers.

Time to get back to our Open Studio Weekend at the Mountain Painters and Artisans Gallery during this cold/rainy/snowy Memorial Day Weekend. Come on in or stop on by our facebook page!

Coming this summer....a weekend full of Zentangle fun at Fletcher Farm School in Ludlow, VT.

    1. Shading really helped with the spinning of daggerly.
