GelTangle = Gel Print + Zentangle
Neutrals are where it’s at, am I right? Lately, I used a multitude of vibrant eye-catching colors. So it was refreshing to return to neutrals and gold. You gotta love gold!
Limit your color palette to 2-3 colors. I used Amsterdam Payne’s Gray & Metallic Gold Deep acrylic paint with Pinata Gold alcohol ink. The embellished Crazy Huggins Zentangle pattern vibe with the medieval color palette.
Color With Washi Tape
On a two-page journal spread, I tie elements from one page to the next. In this case, the color palette is the same, but in different ratios. In addition, the circles of the Zentangle pattern are represented by gold alcohol ink dots and circles.
Those large gold circles were screaming for flower doodles. And of course there’s never enough gold, so I grabbed some gilded washi tape and got to work.
