Colour Me Sepia - Diva Challenge #70

It's time for our weekly challenge from Laura, also known as the Diva :). This is challenge #70. A colour challenge - of sepia. I used one of Zentangle's pre-strung zendalas, a couple sepia microns, and a brown micron. This super simple design just kind of drew itself. All the pieces fit very well together. It doesn't always work that way - hahaha! For patterns I used weave, strircles, betweed, tipple, and a variation of shattuck.


To admire all the other designs, head on over to the Diva's page here. Perhaps you'd like to give it a try and post one of your own :).

    1. thanks, joni! i thought i replied to you yesterday, but i don't see it here. i've been having some problems with this new blog - comments disappearing, followers disappearing, then reappearing, then disappearing, pictures showing up then vanishing - it's been a challenge all by itself. anyway, thanks for your comments and for your encouragement for the CZT training - i can't wait! really nervous about it but very excited!
