well, I played around a bit, and this is what I came up with:
The sparkles! the shading!
Last week was a St Paddy's Day challenge, which I didn't do until yesterday...
It started out kind of "meh" but at the end, I like it.
And I thought I'd share this with you. For a reason that I can't remember, steampunk grabbed me this past week, and I made these:

As I was working on this one, I decided this would be what I give my co worker who requested a piece for her cubicle. Here's a cool little synchronicity: Sam (who asked for the art) is dating Jarick (who is my manager at work)...and Jarick actually has some pretty cool samples of ZIA here and there. For instance, a cardboard cup...all done up with zentangle ish stuff. Sam already has a couple of his things in her station, and now she'll get my first big time steampunk piece.
I have been exploring patterns that are conducive to steampunk, and wanted to recommend Molossus. If you search her name on Pinterest, you'll find a lot of suitable patterns. with plans of filling up some pages in my big book.

He was A LOT of fun!
