Weekly Challenge # 140


Wow, what a blast from the past I had with this challenge when I read it this morning. I haven’t done anything like that since, dare I say it, college. I took a trip down memory lane thinking about using the rapidograph pens for projects like this. The kind of pen that you had to keep perfectly upright for them to work, the kind that seemed, on the smaller sizes to clog up all the time, and were a pain to clean!


Now to start the challenge for the week… For those who know me, most know that I do have sort of a, ok I have a pen fetish! If one pen is good, ten is better. I normally carry around a little bag of my favorites with me. I usually have at least three sizes of microns, along with a few colors and other types of pens. Today, no such luck! I only had my .01 micron pen. I searched through the book bag twice, thinking that I had missed them. I still found nothing but the rouge sharpie in the bottom of the bag. Guess I am doing the challenge in a .01. Here is my piece for the i am the diva challenge, to use pointillism for a tile. Be sure to stop on over to the site and see what everyone else does too! I used a tangleation of Well and a bit of modified Mooka for this one.




To all who left me a comment last week, thank you so very much! 
I truly enjoy hearing from you and you made my week!
