Zentangle Weekly Challenge #44: “String Theory v. VI: Tangled on the inside”

Posted on: October 22, 2011

I return to participating in I am the diva’s weekly Zentangle challenge, after an absence of 3 weeks, for reasons I will detail below. This week’s wonderful challenge is to use a tangle as a string, and then fill in with other tangles. It took me a little time to select my “string” tangle. I have a head cold, and tried to work on it before bed and couldn’t decide on anything. So I  slept for a while, got up around midnight, and worked on it until 1 am.  It flowed better then. So I chose to use Hollibaugh as the string, and then happily filled it with Ambler, Onamato, Shattuck, Avreal, Rain, Bales, and Snail. Shading it was fun (and easy) to make it look dimension. Thank you, Laura, for your challenges every week!

So one of the reasons that I have missed several weeks of the diva’s challenges is that my sister and I went to Providence, RI to participate in the Certified Zentangle Teacher seminar #7. So now I am a CZT! Yea! The seminar was wonderful. Rick and Maria set a very welcoming, warm, and supportive tone right from the start that brings out the best in everyone. It was very inspiring to see all the other participants’ Zentangle-inspired art (ZIA). I believe that all who were there at the seminar came away with feelings of gratitude, confidence, and a desire to share the experience of Zentangle with others. I know I did!

Here are some pictures from the CZT Seminar.

Below are some examples of the many beautiful ZIA’s that participants brought to share. Please let me know if you want me to identify you as the artist. I will add your name to the picture caption. (Or if you would like me to remove the picture.)

Your challenge piece is great. Love the idea to use Hollibaugh, Thanks for all the pictures from the seminar. I blew up each one of them so I could really see all the details.

What a great idea to use Hollibaugh! Your photos from training are so inspiring. Thanks for sharing them!
