This week the Diva Challenge #84 was String Theory v. XI – Blind-Sighted. The challenge was to draw a string without looking – just close your eyes and start your string. Then use that string for your Zentangle® tile. It didn’t seem very difficult of a challenge. I like just scribbling a string out and then seeing what I can do with it. I know that some people have trouble creating a purely random string, but that isn’t something I struggle with, so I liked this challenge.
So here are the two strings I created blind-sighted. Look like fun!
I just started with one section and started tangling. I rarely go into any Zentangle tile with a preconceived idea about what I want to do. I just pick a section and start. Then go to another section. And then try to see a theme or a connection of some kind to help me go on to the next tangles. I sometimes pick a new tangle that I want to work with or just pick a favorite tangle (of course!) or one that seems kind of hard to fit in a particular string. It’s all good fun, right?
Here are the two completed Zentangle tiles I created with the above strings. You can see that I ended up rotating the tile for #1.
