#DoodlewashJanuary2021 Prompt: Cocoon.

Did you know that moths make cocoons, which are made of silk, but butterflies form a hardened skin called a chrysalis? 

This is the last page in this ZigZag journal where I used the red & yellow gouache for backgrounds done with a GelliArts printing plate .  I used blues and a cooler red on the back pages.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.

  1. Wow….those colors and patterns and that hint of transformation showing the caterpillar body! LOVE. When I see design like this, I immediately think of textiles. I want a pillow just like this! 🙂 My neighbor who travels to her birthplace in Okinawa, Japan frequently, bring back these large (up to 3″+) brown crysalis bags she finds lying in the woods from their large moths. She hand stitches tiny zippers in them for a purse. It is a wonder! They are quite sturdy and flexible.
