William Morris~Zentangle-style!

I've Finally gotten back into the "swing" of  The Diva's Weekly Challenges! This week's challenge  is inspired by Maria's Blog post  regarding William Morris and the subtle background images in his art. Maria introduced a "zenhancement" using black background behind our tangles.then drawing in fine patterns in white Sakura Gelly Roll pen.

I was inspired by the technique itself, and thrilled that Laura Harms Challenged me to try it! I was also inspired by the botanical motifs of William Morris.

This is my first attempt. I felt that Sampson really lent itself to this.

I like this second one better. I'll definitely be playing with my white pens some more!! I have more ideas.


  1. Gorgeous! How come your white lines show so crisp and clear?

  2. I enjoy both of them, the patterning is lovely. Your first one reminds me of those wonderful table cloth prints on vintage 50's table cloths!
