Fall foilage



It's time for leaf peeping again. Time to hop in the car and head off to the wooded areas where the leaves are turning glorious colors. In my case, that may be simply a trip to a local forest preserve where the colors are equally beautiful.

I did the zendala above on one of my hand colored tiles that was a mottled yellow orange to start. The string is, of course, fall leaves. Tangles were done with a brown micron and shading used colored pencils.


These leaves were done by a group at the Schaumburg Public Library. This class was designed for fans of coloring, and the library provided markers and colored pencils. I taught them a few Zentangle tangles to add to their leaves to create a zentangle inspired artwork. I love all the variations and the variety of colors they used!

  2. Wow, Sue - when I first saw the thumbnail of this, I thought the leaves were real! The shading makes them leap right off the screen. This is a beautiful project and definitely something I'm keen to try! Autumn is one of my favourite times of year with the glorious colours, and your leaves positively glow. I love the textured background too, which really sets them off. What a lovely design.
