New Challenge at DoubleClick Skittles! Use a Bug

Challenge #29 - Use a Bug

Aug. 19 - Sept. 1

So who hasn't doodled?  I used to doodle all the time when I was a kid.  Doodling turned to sketching, sketching turned to art classes.... which leads me to today's project.  I thought I would make my own Zentangle and color it.

I started by drawing a butterfly and adding sections to fill.  It's not very symmetrical, but I'm ok with it.  I'm just going with the flow.

My completed version is pictured above and ready to color.  Obviously, I'm not a professional!  But, it was fun to do.

Below, is a close-up of the butterfly.  I chose to embellish my butterfly using Purple Twilight, Sunshine Yellow and Sailboat Blue Skittles.  They blend perfectly with my colored butterfly.
