Shells

Linda and Rosie's challenge over at the Awfully Big Art Adventure (monthly challenge) is to use shells in your art. I've been in the mood for zentangling. It's very calming to me. I zentangled rocks at Easter time (to make Easter eggs) so I thought, "Why not zentangle on shells?"

Any shells we find here in the Puget Sound are pretty broken up and worn down, so the shells I've got are bits and pieces. But they're nice and smooth - perfect for a sharpie :)

I hope you like these - better yet - I hope you give it a try too!

Wow, they're so pretty! They would look stunning in a fuchsia pink bowl, that's how I'm imagining them :)
