I am the Diva Challenge #76

I've been so busy sewing patchwork creations for our local gallery for the last few weeks I haven't had time to enter any of the challenges, then I saw this week's and Bingo!  My very first zentangle landscape, done a few weeks ago, was of my homeland on the west coast of the highlands of Scotland.  So I'm going to show that, and try to do a new one in the next couple of days.

So here it is.  I don't know why it looks so wonky down the left hand side, but it doesn't really matter to me. I wanted to illustrate all the rock layers on the side of the cliff leading down to a little jetty, and I was quite pleased with the result.  I hope you enjoy looking at it too.


I took this photo at the same time I started my ZIA:

    1. Thank you all so very much for your kind comments. I am very lucky to have such wonderful scenery around me, and zentangle seems to me a perfect way to express it, with all its intricate swirly and organic patterns, just like nature.
