Diva Challenge #48
Wow, I can’t believe it has been 10 weeks since I posted my last zentangle (and my first for those of you who remember reading that post) for one of Diva’s challenges. But I am on a new mission starting with this week’s challenge, number 48. Fellow Wisconsin CZT, Cathy Staeven and I are working together to motivate each other to not only do the current challenge but to go back and complete the previous 47 challenges. Check out Cathy’s blog, A Tangled Place, to see her beautiful zentangles as we work to meet our goal.
This week’s Diva’s challenge comes from guest challenger, Sue Clark of Colorado. This challenge is called “Tri Shapes” and includes two parts. The first part of the challenge is to use three geometric shapes, (square, circle, and triangle) as the string and to “tri” tangle patterns that we haven’t used before as we complete our zentangle. As I placed my shapes on the tile, I decided to revisit the beginnings of Zentangle and use the first part of the zentangle process, creating a border, as my square. I also decided to use some of the original zentangle patterns defined by Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts as I worked on my zentangle. I found several patterns in what I like to call my “bible of all things Zentangle” that I received at my training which I had never used.
Patterns used: quabog, emingle, tagh, ambler, and vitruvius
Come back tomorrow to see my blast to the past, zentangles for challenges #1 and #47. Cathy and I decided that we would start at both ends and work our way to the middle as we do previous challenges. Until tomorrow…
