East Meets West

2.5in x 3.5in. ATC size. Archival pigment ink on origami paper.

 

I love all those zentangles I see where people have colored them. I tried, but I ended up ruining my ZTs because I cannot color to save my life! o_O;;

 

So I thought, hey, why don't I use something that already has color? I will tangle on that! And that's what I did. Heh. These are origami papers. I've always collected them, buying them whenever I see them because they're so pretty. I cannot resist colorful things! Some of these papers are many years old.

 

I'm not sure if my experimentation has worked. I think the papers are beautiful, I love the colors so much, but I'm not sure if my tangles are hideous and are a terrible injustice to the prettiness of these papers. =_=;;
