Welcome to the Tombow Blog Hop! If you have come here from Jennie’s blog then you’re on track! Here is a negative image ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) that I created and colored using Tombow Dual Brush Pens. The process is simple and creates a colorful and fun ZIA!
Start with an image for your negative space, kept the silhouette simple and then cut out as your template. I used Tombow Removable Adhesive on the back to help hold it to the paper while I traced around it with a pencil. I like to use a hard graphite pencil, Tombow 4H Drawing Pencil, for all my strings, the light graphite means you have no erasing after you have added all your tangles.
Tangle with a permanent black pen all round your traced images leaving the dragonfly images blank.
Use the Indirect Blending method to color in all your tangles with Dual Brush Pens. Here I did an adjacent color combination with greens and blues.
For more information on the Indirect Blending method, you can purchase my book ‘Time to Tangle with Colors’, Design Originals Publication.
There is also a section in the ‘Joy of Zentangle’ that teaches you the coloring method. You can purchase both books online through Design Originals or from your local CZT may also sell the book! (you can also click on me – I’m in Canada – and I can sell you an autographed copy !)
