I've had to wait almost a year to post this, but now that my art group has returned the round robin color art journals back to the original owners, I can show you a two-page spread I made for my friend Laura.  Her color was green, and I was in a Zentangling mood.  It took forever --  just figuring out what patterns to use where and how to shade and color -- but it was so much fun. I think we all enjoy creating our own little worlds. Hope you enjoy mine.  Don't you wonder who lives in the little houses?

Laura loves hummingbirds, so that is why you have the bird's eye view of the landscape below.  I used a Cheery Lynn Lace Hummingbird die and backed it with dry embossed Elizabeth Craft blue iris Shimmer Sheetz. I used dozens of Copics on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper.

Here is the beginning layout.

Materials used:
Cheery Lynn Lace Hummingbird die B194
