Recently I decided to structure my practice a bit by doing four weekly zentangle challenges: the Diva Challenge, Joey's Weekly Challenge, It's a String Thing and the Zendala Dare. (Links to all on the right.) The weekly challenge gives you parameters to follow and then a place to post your results alongside those of fellow tanglers. I always feel reminded of our classes during the CZT seminar, where we all started with the same tools, usually the same string (a framework to draw in) and the same tangles, or patterns. At the end of the lesson, we placed our tiles side by side to create a mosaic. Mesmerizing to see how we all had our own style, but also how harmoniously everything came together.
I am grateful to these bloggers for the opportunity to learn and expand my practice, all the while reliving the seminar experience!
Today, I posted my first two challenge tiles online. Here's my "It's a String Thing" post for challenge #104, with special congratulations to Adele Bruno on the 2nd anniversary of her blog.
And here's my tile for the Diva's Challenge, titled simply "+/-".
