Diva's Weekly Challenge #384: Anthem
Anthem scored points with me as soon as I saw it on the Mosaic app recently. It just looks different to me from most tangles. I don't know of anything quite like it, with its crystalline structure. Thank you, Laura, for choosing it for this week's challenge. I chose to draw it on a black 3Z tile, which I thought would go well with the angular pattern. I used an "oldie, but goodie" technique: Zenstone shavings are rubbed into the paper and feathered out to create the glow. Then I drew the tangle with a Graphic 1 pen. (Don't try it with a Micron or Gelly Roll, which will get clogged with the soapstone particles.)
I've been trying to use this tangle with the "tranzending technique". Not quite there, yet, but I hope to have something to share next week.
