“You Are My Sunshine Zentangle”
Created by Sophia Vida

For this Project you will need:

– Sakura Micron Pens in varying sizes
sakura pens
– Kimberly Watercolor Pencils
Kimberly thCA2FHQS2
– Strathmore 400 Series, Watercolor Cold Press 140 lb Paper, 6″ x 12″
– Niji Waterbrush – Medium
– Stardust Stickles
– Paper towels

I wasn’t sure what I wanted to create. So I thought I would start by painting the paper with the pink, orange, yellow and purple Kimberly Watercolor Pencils. I used the Niji Waterbrush with the built-in water reservoir in the handle to activate the colors.

After looking at the colors for a few, I thought it felt like a sunset. Excited that I finally knew where this was going, I quickly grabbed my pencil and started sketching the design. After my sketch was done, I went over it with the No. 5 Micron pen and then filled in my Zentangle patterns. To color the heavier lines and larger areas I switched to the No. 8 Micron pen with the fatter tip. Last I added the sentiment at the bottom “You are my sunshine” also using the No. 8 Micron pen.

I still wasn’t quite satisfied with how it looked so I decided to highlight this piece with Stardust Stickles. Voila!! I had a unique Zentangle piece that was just lots of fun to create!

Thanks for looking and have lots of fun creating your own Zentangle designs!
