Diva Challenge #181: Water

So, early this summer I discovered this thing called Zentangle©
More on that later. 'Cause I have thoughts. Lots of thoughts! But for now, dinner is waiting and I want to post my response to The Diva's water challenge.
This is on a classic 3.5 inch tile. I used a Micron 05, B and 7B pencils, and colored with an Inktense pencil (dry) and a little highlighting from a gelly roll glitter pen.  The tangles are Tropicana, Hairy, and N'Zepple. I had quite a bit of fun working on this one - even if the baby did use my inattention as opportunity to empty out most of the Tupperware drawer!

Great tile, and I always love to see what people do with the tangle tropicana! I love how you filled the arches and your waves are so well done.

Art Lady Kate, I definitely laughed when I first came across the step-out for "Tropicana" because I immediately got the reference: I'd played around with drawing that orange juice lid just days before! :)

This reminds me of one of my favorite lines of poetry, from the book of Psalms:

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God...

It does look like a bubbly stream rippling through a glorious city square! so refreshing, I can almost hear the water babbling.

Thank you for that verse, Heidi Sue. I love to add scripture to my tangles. I'm not so interested in the Zen thing, but I certainly am interested in finding ways to meditate upon God's word. I may well do another version of this tile including your Psalm!
