My latest effort, inspired by one created by those great folks at Zentangle!
This one took a couple of evenings in front of the tv to finish. I probably could have done more - but this will do! My favorite 'tangle is the zen shell. There were a couple of not so great ones on the clipboard, but since it will be covered with paper from time to time, it doesn't matter!
This was a run of the mill clipboard, that I painted with gesso, inked with Sakura pigma pens, some gel colors, and then sealed with Spar Varnish. Spar was what the Zentangle folks used, but I am not so sure I like it on mine. I used polyurethane on my hand mirror (see previous post) and liked the finish on that a whole lot better. The Spar was still tacky after 24 hours. I may try spraying polyurethane over the top of the varnish - but that may make matters worse. I'll see what happens with it in the next couple of hours.
You can click on the pix for a closer look - altho that will make the errors a bit more glaring!!!LOL
