Diva’s challenge 172 was supposed to be a duotangle, and I took some liberties. Mooka has been a challenge for me, so I was interested in making it prominent (and making it look somewhat what it is supposed to look like). As I have been using Auraknot quite a bit lately, I had little interest in playing it up. I am currently hooked on the circular format, finding it much more ‘zen’ than the tradition square box. Since I didn’t stick to just two tangles, I was able to incorporate many tangles I have not tried yet.
I have been wanting to play with ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) flowers, and this week’s Diva challenge to use circle strings was just the chance.
Looks like white space is becoming a theme of mine. Less is more!
I have been itching to try Helen Williams‘ random grid Well flowers. I was glad when I found a way to incorporate Punzel without it being overbearing.
I call this “Two Birds at Redrock” because it satisfies two current Zentangle challenges, Diva Challenge #166 “UMT Diva Style” and It’s a String Thing #39, using string pattern # 36 and Meer. I drew most of it at Redrock Dental, in the waiting room during my wife’s appointment. I love the portability of tangling – you can do it almost anywhere.
The inspiration for this piece came after contemplating each of the challenges, and at first I didn’t think I could get a handle on either. I slept on it and was rewarded with this idea upon wakening. I hope you enjoy it.
