The Diva's Weekly Challenge #263: Globular Grid

A globular grid??? This week, the Diva almost scared me away!!!! But then I remembered all the things that I've learned from her and other amazing artists. "Anything is possible, one stroke at a time." I thank her for teaching me how to make a globular grid. (Mine is pretty wonky, but that's okay!) When I started to fill it in, I saw all these little bits of different shapes and sizes and thought, "This might be an opportunity to try the new concept of reticula and fragments, as put forth by Rick and Maria in the new Zentangle Primer." I see this as mosaic work, as opposed to "color" work. (Maria says that tangles are like colors, right? Well, for me, the reticula and fragments are like little bits of crockery and tiles in a mosaic.)
If that doesn't make a bit of sense, no worries. Here's the finished product.


Thanks for stopping by! I'll be making the rounds of your blogs (a little late!) on this rainy Tuesday and look forward to seeing your work!
