This week's Diva challenge was to use the latest official Zentangle pattern, Schway. It's a very fun pattern to create, and it evolves in an interesting way. I love this one.
I decided to use a brand new black Zendala tile for my creation. The tile is pre-strung with a spiral-looking string. I filled each section with some Schway with different metallic pens. I love the look of metallics on the black tiles. Each section of Schway has a different filler, although some are hard to tell with the smaller places.
When you play with the black tiles, remember that the gel pens have a thicker nib and have a very different feel. I think that patterns that have less detail tend to work better. Of course, all's fair in love and tangling, so give every pattern a try to see what works for you. Shading has a different feel too, and it's so fun to see what happens.
I'm not sure this is finished. I may add some more metallic shading in between each section, but I haven't decided yet.
