Starfish Line Interrupted Video Lesson
This lesson explores the idea of the LINE a bit further than the traditional Zentangle method's Stroke and Aura concepts. Learn how to use the line in different ways to create beautiful subtle color gradations, illusions of 3D even without shading and how to use brush marker coloring. Echolines, Line-weight, Brush Marker and colored pencil flicks, Twinkling Hilights, all come together to form this beautiful project.

I recommend using Copic markers if you can afford them. They last a very long time and if you get a refill, you can use them indefinitely!
- Sakura Pigma Micron PN (Plastic Nib)
- Copic Holiday Blue (a medium/dark teal), Duck Blue (turquoise) and Yellowish Green
- Prismacolor Premier colored pencils, in colors: PC938 White, PC932 Violet, PC992 Light Aqua, PC920 Light Green. These pencils match and enhance the color of the Copic markers.
Marvy "Le Pen" Oriental Blue: in contrast with the copics, which are alcohol based and permanent, this fine liner is water-soluble, and can be used with a water brush to create a beautiful watercolor background.
A pencil sharpener: to keep the colored pencils sharpened.
A small water brush with a little water in it.
A square of paper towel to dry the brush.
Two Zentangle tiles. Optionally, use any type of hot pressed watercolor paper cut into 3.5 or 4 inch squares.
