Hi everyone, weather a little overcast today !!
This is a project,that i did yesterday ! I did'nt plan it, it just happened !! one thing led to another and i ended up with this warm bejewelled creation !!!
what do you think ?

I used a big and juicy ink pad, with a Marianne stencil, a gold gel pen and some flat back pearls and gems ! I have also embroidered some parts of the design with very fine gold filament !!! I am very pleased with the result !!! This is a close up of the embroidery, hope you have a lovely happy day............!!!!!!

Hi there, as the title says, I'm in the 'mooka' mood ! Mooka is a new zentangle pattern
that i have just learned and this is my first project with this pattern . I think i can develope this pattern into something more intricate, with a bit more practice !! This actually puts me almost into a meditative state and the flowing lines just fall from the pen
onto the paper, it is such a phenominal experience. My husband says that i am loosing the 'plot', maybe but i'm happy and its fun.....! This is my entry for the' I AM THE DIVA'....... CHALLENGE 16....'MOOKA'. Have a 'be kind to yourself day' today, and that means you SUE and you ANNE....!!!
