Challenge #19-More Morris

Awhile back, Rick and Maria did a wonderful post on their blog about William Morris  who was a wonderful textile designer, artist, and writer.  Maria showed us her technique of using a white gelly roll pen on black.  When you scan the Internet on all of the wonderful work William Morris did, it becomes a little overwhelming.  This weeks Diva challenge was to use the William Morris technique of light over dark.  I need to work with this technique a little (ha-a lot) more.  It's hard to get the gelly roll pens to be as precise as the Microns.  I'm not sure now that I look at this tile again, if I filled in enough light on dark.  It's was hard to decide how much to do without totally loosing the verdigogh tangle.  Anyway, it was fun to try something new and I will definitely be trying more!  For someone without an art background, I love that Rick and Maria are always taking it up a notch and introducing us to artists and how we can apply their work to Zentangle.  I also love these challenges from Laura Harms, the diva.  Thank you all!
