Village Five: The Tangled Forest

Well...every village needs a forest nearby and that is the case with the Tangled Village.  This piece of Zentangled Inspired Art is a mixed media creation of black construction paper, prismacolor colored pencils, illustration board,white drawing paper, and Micron-Pigma waterproof drawing pencils.

The trees were   tangled into designs with white prismacolor color pencil on black construction paper and then cut out.  The illustration board was shaded into sky and snow with colored pencils and the trees were then glued down on top.  The branches were drawn with the Micron-Pigma black drawing pen and the cardinals were drawn on printer paper with colored pencils and then cut out and glued onto the composition.

This piece is 12 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches in size.

Thanks, Sherry! This mixed media work is different for me - but I really enjoyed doing it.
