I am a fairly "classic" tangler: I mostly use the 3.5 x 3.5 inch tiles (occasionally a white A6 postcard) and a black 0.1 Sakura Pigma Micron plus a pencil. For my mandalas I stick to the color pensils and sometimes I use the fineliners for the outlines. That's all!
The Diva's Weekly Challenge #110 told us "to get rid of the box".... Well, this was exactly the little push I needed, Laura! There were at least five boxes I wanted to get rid of. So I had declared Wednesday to be my personal "Boxing Day". These items became my mission:
- working FASTER
- WITHOUT too many details
- on a LARGE paper,
- using THICK markers and
- COLOR, although less important.

It's done on A3 sized paper with black Edding permanent markers 400 and 3000. I absolutely wanted to do Palrevo, because I expected a great effect.... And that just worked out, I love that pattern!!!
Some time ago this was my daugther Ad's favorite scarf:
The bright colors in the black pattern inspired me. Therefore the second contribution is made with the Edding markers and (neon) highlighters, also from my huge stock of art supplies! The shading is done with Talens Ecoline® (#718 Warm grey), a liquid watercolor, and a cotton tip instead of a paintbrush:
