Leda, Zebra and Ribbon Rose

6 Comments

A winning combination? I love it when my products come together and make a fun piece of art! Hahaha! Don’t you love it when yours do? I want to show you a fun piece I put together in about 20 minutes total using products from Leda Art Supply and Zebra Pen.

Recently I pulled out my medium Leda Sketchbook and a handful of mildliners from Zebra. You already know I like to include alcohol when I work with my mildliners, but for these pages I used the mildliners in the traditional sense. Using five or six different colors I quickly drew a bunch of spirals all over both pages of the Leda sketchbook. I didn’t worry about placement – as you can see they overlapped. A lot. Then I used a green to add in some petal shapes here and there.

Next I grabbed a .01 technical pen from Zebra and tangled up a bunch of ribbon roses. All over both pages. I didn’t worry about completing every ribbon rose and I didn’t worry about turning every spiral into a rose.

I love how these two pages turned out and it didn’t take that long to complete. Leda and Zebra make a fine working team! Ribbon rose is one of my tangles I designed and included in Tangle All Around the World. Want to try it?

You can either watch this video to see how I draw them OR

My FB group Tangle All Around is getting ready to embark on a six month tangle project. If you are interested just click here, answer the three easy questions to let me know you are a person and not a machine and I will let you in. Hope to see you there!

  1. Ha – finally saw why I couldn’t get these roses to look right. I was making a closed loop to start instead of an open one & initially going too many revolutions. Just a sheet of lined paper & a ballpoint pen next to the computer…….hmm……. should really be formulating Returns Procedures Forms for when I go back to work Thurs. Just love the looseness you achieved with that large piece using the Mildliners. Keep seeing them pop up in use here & there so shall go investigate ……… Thank you for putting the video & step-outs together like this.

    • you’re welcome 🙂 I don’t like making videos but I do realize they have a value. have fun at work Thursday. enjoy your time off <3
