Calgary mud

In my post for the Diva's challenge this week I mentioned that many of the photos of Calgary, High River, and elsewhere in Alberta looked more like mud than water. I did a follow-up piece in browns and tried to think of flowy, oozy tangles to use. I used the same pre-strung zendala tile that I used for the first (watery) one, and both brown and sepia ink.
Tangles: Black Pearlz, Bunzo, Crescent Moon, C-Scape, Diva Dance,
Kandysnake variation, Künstler, Lamar, Magma, Paisley Boa, Verve

  9. Wow. Just WOW.

    I love the patterns and the sepia and brown colouring. Lovely done! I have to admit though that I like the watery one better because it's giving some positiveness in all this devastation.

  10. Beautiful! The browns blend so well with the design and look striking. I love how the patterns swirl out from the centre.
