I took this week’s Diva Challenge in a different direction. I have been playing around with different flower images for a mediation collage. Embroidery and Zentangle have seemed like natural synthesis and when I saw that Rain was the Tangle pattern selected for this week it seemed like a great place to start. I’m not sure how flower-like it turned out, but I am very happy with the experiment overall. The gratitude journal page that this will be part of will continue my flower study, but in the meantime, here is Purple Rain. (BTW – this is also the title of an album by the artist formerly known as Prince that I LOVED as a young person and still enjoy).
