I Am the Diva Weekly Challenge #307 - Zingo

Here I am once again faced with a rock to draw on.  I learned a lesson with this one;  I covered the rock with silver Sharpie for an undercoat which made it really slick, resulting in a total loss of pen control when drawing the pattern.  Reminds me of something Paul Simon said about "Slip Sliding Away".  It was fun though.  I have learned not to be too concerned with the outcome, rather just keep drawing and coloring and shading and having fun and the end result will often times surprise you in a pleasing way.  There's a gray pen in the Sharpie set I have that I used for shading around the spirals.  It actually worked without totally obscuring the lines underneath.  Hafta give it some more mileage.  Sorry about the wordiness - Enjoy the rock.

  1. Again, you have made a wonderful rock with beautiful colors. I like to read your interpretation of the way you have tangled, I totally agree!

  2. Lovely!!! Drawing on a rock will from time to time cost you a pen. Nowadays I use Identy Pens and that works much better for me.

  6. You've inspired me to give rock tangling a try. PS; Were you really on sabbatical?

    1. Rock on Suzanne. It's a fun challenge. TiP - hold the rock in your lap for stability and brace your drawing hand on your leg.

    2. Really on sabbatical - as I understand it Suzanne, sabbatical is when a college professor takes a semester off and travels in Italy - then nope, I wasn't, rather I just sort of quit tangling last Summer and Fall (no explainable reason) and then family business kept me busy with other thoughts until Spring, when alas, there were way too many rocks laying around that called to me for some adornment.
