Crafting on the Move

Having spent the last five days in Berlin with a group of Y8 pupils, I had very little time to craft.  The only time available to me was on the plane travelling both ways so I packed my set of 20 Staedtler Triplus fine liner pens and a small Daler Rowney cartridge paper hard back note book so that I could doodle.  Even so, I only managed one page during the entire trip. 
I started with dark blue and drew paisley inspired shapes all over the page.  I then used the purple to add an inner shape and filled between the two with arch shapes.
 










I decided to fill in the whole background between the 'paisley' shapes with swirls in the original dark blue pen.
Finally the inner sections of each paisley shape were filled with spirals in the next lightest shade of blue pen. 
I'm not sure if I consider it entirely finished yet; I could colour in some of the zentangled areas, but it helped me to relax on the flights, so all is well!
