Outlawz Progressive Challenge August 2017 - Three Fishes

The image(s) this month are two angel fish  drawn by Jean Chaney (Tangle Street). One is a fish with the zentangle pattern drawn in for you and the other leaves room for you to add your own pattern or not. I choose the pre drawn one.  

The images are titled Swish, the Angelfish and Swish Tangled. The underwater plant life is part of the image for 'Swish Tangled .

I printed out 3 images of the fish, 2 large and one small., coloured them with Prismacolor  markers,  and fussy cut  out one large and the one small fish. These two were then made dimensional with pop ups.

A Top 3 pick at: Crafty Creation challenge #348, Ike'sWorld Challenge #95, and Thru the Purple Haze #2
