Duo tangle

Duo-tangle was the hardest challenge, yet! Seriously! I'm not even sure why. Maybe the squareness of dex and the fluidity of verdigogh just could not come together in my head. After hating my first one (tried to do it without a string) and giving up on the second one (tried to do dex in the round), a friend said, "I thought the point of zentangle was NOT to stress?" LOL. So I sucked it up and did the next one in 15 minutes...and it turned out okay! So today day I did another one in 15 minutes using a string (duh) and I liked it! But I thought I didn't use enough dex, so I added some more. And now I don't like it as much. :(

third try

I like this one, but there's only a little dex
I should have left it alone!

#25 - Zendala Magic

I love mandalas and have made several with beads. I have a beaded chakra project that I have not completed (yet) that will be made of mandalas. My first book of zentangles is half full of mandala patterns.

Many thanx to Genevieve for filling in for Laura and for providing the shape for the zendala challenge.

String Theory III - Spiral Out - Keep Going

I love swirls and spirals so I was all over this challenge right away. I went a little crazy with the second one. I started with a spiral and kept adding stuff.

Catching Up - A Little Help From My Friends

The first string was drawn by my 9-year-old nephew. He was so excited to make something complicated. :) The second one was drawn by my mom. I still have several strings from my 6-year-old nephew and my goddaughter that I will tangle on. Drawing on someone else's strings is different, but I love collaboration and will always take a little help from my friends.

Catching Up - String Theory

I've been doing the challenges during weeks they are posted, but I haven't been taking the time to post them. So I'm catching up. Hope you like them!

String Theory II - Stripes

I love stripes and polka dots, so this challenge was right up my alley!
