Musical Zentangle

Hi all.  This was my first proper attempt at tangling, a couple of months ago now and I meant to show it then but with Christmas it got forgotten.  I made it for a friend that had been laid low with the virus but luckily after a week she began to feel better and no nasty after effects luckily.  She sings and teaches music so I found a treble clef shape which I transferred using tissue paper and a pencil, turning it over and then going over the lines again to transfer it on to my piece of Bristol Smooth paper.  

I used a similar design to that I had seen and using two Micron Pens, an 03 and 05, I pencilled the circles then went over with these pens.  I then filled in with the other tangles, again very similar to what I had seen but I used just the pen and went for  I finished with some colour using four Intense pencils, a red, green, orange and lilac but with no added water.

I was very happy with the finished look and matted it on to black card and then my 7" x 5" card.  

Before I go I have two new followers, and thank you ladies.  They are Sue Greenwell and Janice Davies.  I was unable to find them online, so if you see this and want a shout out please leave me some details and I will gladly do so. 

*We visited her and her husband recently and she still had it out on the side still which I thought was lovely of her, and also she was interested to know how it was done.

Thank you for visiting me here today and I'll see you again soon.
