Diva Challenge #84

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!

Zentangle Blind-sighted String #1

Zentangle Blind-sighted String #2

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.

    Both are great but I’m really drawn to the energy and bounce of your first. Your NZeppel’s on version 2 are perfect!

    I really like the n’zeppel and pepper floaties in your tiles. They’re so fun!

  3. Susan Art says:

    These are both delightful tiles.

    I love the depth in your two tangles……very beautiful work!

  5. AWESOME! I just started zentangling. Not “for real” zentangle, just zentangle inspired stuff. I didn’t get the first string part. AND I’m local. 🙂 When are your classes?

      Hey carly. So glad you are tangling. Taking a class is a great way to understand the philosophy behind Zentangle as well. My next scheduled class is Sept 25th @ 6pm. If you are interested in doing a private class or gathering a small group together for a class, I can work with you on getting those scheduled at your convenience.
