The Diva’s Zentangle challenge #138

This week’s challenge by The Diva is about getting inspired by stuff in your own home. Well, that was easy for me, I photographed my furniture and stuff for about an hour. I was surprised to find that much inspiration, enough for weeks ‘n’ weeks! I ended up using some decoration on an antique sewing machine, which is nearly faded, but still inspiring. So, this is what I came up with. I edited a bit on my computer, I only drew the left part and copied it to the right. I actually like drawing on my computer as well and I often combine the techniques.

I will probably recreate this design some time, but a bit cleaner, as I don’t like the crooked lines that much :-). For now, this will do.

Previously I made some other colorful work. Below some examples of my work. As you can see, I like to combine several techniques and inspiration sources. The portrait is of my mother, when she was quite a bit younger.
