I've been checking out a lot of wonderful blogs that feature beautiful Zentangle work. The Zentangle® art form and method was created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. Zentangle® is a registered trademark of Zentangle, Inc. When I first read about Zentangle, I had no idea what it was and I was curious,so after a little research, I've been doodling every chance I get. I discovered the blog I am the Diva - Certified Zentangle Teacher and saw that there are weekly challenges. Being the novice that I am with this art, I've been hesitant to join in a challenge with all the talented people that have been doing this for so long. But, I figure, what the heck....let's give it a shot.
The challenge this week was to draw the strings by overlapping my initials. I tried it both way...with block letters and with cursive letters. I believe I'm more drawn to the block letters. Anyway, here are both tangles.
Being a perfectionist by nature, I sometimes have trouble when I "mess up" a line, but I'm slowly trying to overcome that trait! (mostly because I do mess up a lot...then I have to find a creative way to cover up my mess! LOL!) Probably all of the tangles I've used in my work are original Zentangles...I'm not sure since 've never taken a class. All I can say is.....This is FUN! Very relaxing...and I love the finished results (usually!).
Thanks for stopping by! Until next time...
