So onto the challenge, trying to take something I know so well and mix it up was pretty hard. Not so sure it is one of my favorites but I do like certain aspects of it. I like the big and the small berries together. I like the snake-like longer stems of the striped version and I think I like the color choice for the sets of 5 berries. Originally I just had a pencil shaded background and that didn't work for me at all. It really was an exercise in the power of the process. There are no mistakes in zentangle, if I didn't do some of the things I didn't like at first, I would never have gotten to the things I do like about this piece.
Now to share the old and new versions of Poke Root.
