"Mary Jane"







Here's a look at "Mary Jane". I just have a few areas to fill before she's complete. The pens I'm using for these black and white pieces are Micron Archival Ink 005, Micron Archival Ink 01, Black Sharpies both fine and regular tips and Sanford uni-ball fine tip pens. My favorite pen is the Micron 005 because the tip is so fine, it's perfect for those tiny detailed Zentangles.

The last photo here is the finished piece from yesterday.

After following the progress of Julie's family portraits from My Good Babushka, she has been such an inspiration to me I've decided to do a family portrait of my own. I plan to do mine in black and white with Zentangles galore. If you haven't seen Julies blog you much check it out. She has so much talent, I look at Julies paintings and think of the master's!!

  3. Thanks for the pen info. I just marvel at the variety of your designs. I did some zentangles and i just kept doing the same thngs over and over. You should do a posting just about different designs--actually--when you were working on class projects a while back--that might be a good project-sharing your different designs.

  5. I especially love the patterns around her face,
    also the direction around the face, you may have noticed I am partial to doing that sort of thing in a different way of course. I will go look again as I like it so much.

    For me I am glad to be home from Kansas City and doing mundane things for now and should think of something and I have but the thought is not very complete and you know what that means, it means just go and get started and stop the mind fussing.

  7. Rebecca,

    These are both GREAT pieces! I love the one from yesterday! It turned out really well.

    I use similar pens in my detailed work - love my .005 indian ink! I haven't tried sharpies, but Amira has, so I am going to give them a go.

    Great work.

India

Meet India, she is such a treasure! I made from a tea cup I brought back from India last year. She sits 6 1/2 inches tall. The base she sits on is a beautiful square plate I found in Crate & Barrel that matched the tea cup perfectly. India has been embellished with fabrics I also brought back with me. Her hair is a combination of wool and acrylic fibers and she is jeweled with brass accents. India has henna patterns on the souls of her feet and around the tops of her arms and sits in this peaceful position as she meditates. She's waiting to sit in your home and bring you peace.

Art Doll Mable
Meet Mable, she's trying her best to keep her skin glowing. She believes in nourishing her body from the inside out but once a week a good facial mask and cucumbers on her eyes make all the difference in the world. She stand 8 inches tall and would love to sit on the side of your tub or on your dresser. She could spend hours in the bathroom! * Mable is an original one of a kind decorative Art Doll and not meant to be played with as a toy.
