Diva Challenge, courtesy of a Penny B, Zentangle enthusiast in South Africa, who tells us that "In Republic of South Africa, on 12 October we have Bandana Day, which is run by the Sunflower Fund. This is an organization founded in 1999 in support of the SA Bone Marrow Registry for people suffering from leukemia"
My grandfather died of leukemia and so this is for my Opa. He has been gone a long time, but he was a great guy and I still remember him riding a bike in the backyard (he was Dutch) and I also still have some of his letters with his incredibly gorgeous swirly handwriting. I had fun making this Zentangle-inspired sunflower and used a Sakura metallic gelly roll copper star pen for the petals. I hope the sparkles show online. Forgive me that this looks like maybe another flower more than a sunflower:)
