Zenduo # 13

"If you get stuck, draw with a different pen. Change your tools; it may free your thinking."     Paul Arden

It's been a while since I've worked on my Zenduo project, but I'm finally back with another one. If you didn't catch the beginning of my project, and have no idea what I'm talking about, you can read about it here.

This one is lucky #13. The two patterns used were Bloom from Helen Williams and Borbz from Rita N. These two did not suggest an easy way of combining them, and I wasn't all that happy with this, but it did look better with some shading, white pastel pencil highlights, and a little bit of gold metallic gelly roll pen. I used some new paper I recently bought... a pad of Strathmore Artagain paper in several different colors. I've used, and like, their black drawing paper, but had not seen these colors before. This one is a light brown and shows the white highlights nicely.

I really liked the metallic gold so thought I'd add a little more. I outlined the blooms to make them pop a bit.

The paper worked very well with the pens and pencils I used, and I'm looking forward to trying out some of the other colors in the pad.
