I am the diva website challenge this week is to use only two tangles on the tile: Jonqal and Opus. The tangling process for me tonight was very calming and focusing and helped me to feel less stressed. Perhaps some of the internal chaos I was feeling came out in this Zentangle…. Thanks to the diva for her weekly challenge.
I am the diva’s challenge this week has a “love” theme. I chose to use heart shaped strings to tangle within. Then I thought it needed a little extra, so I colored it a pretty pink with my Promarker. I used the tangles of Pais, Intersection, Nipa and a variation of Yincut. Thanks to Laura for posting a challenge each week that keeps me inspired.
This week’s challenge from I am the diva blog is to do a “monotangle” (use only one tangle) with Paradox, one of the tangles from the Zentangle creators, Rick and Maria (see this site for the original directions). Also, CZT, Margaret Bremner has posted a very helpful tutorial on using Paradox in many different ways. Thank you to both the diva, Laura, and Margaret for encouragement to use this great tangle.
Paradox is a tangle I enjoy doing. It was a little challenging at first, but once you get the idea, it flows, at least it does for me. I enjoy the simplicity of all those straight lines. Yet, it ends up having a very flowing, curvy look. Such is the paradox!
