"Is it a Zentangle?" #123


i am the diva, CZT     Weekly Challenge #123-Guest Post-Marie Vennekens CZT

The title of this challenge is "Is it a Zentangle?"
We are to create a tile without traditional tangles or their variations, then speak about how it went for us.
I created 2 tiles but I'm not sure whether I got this challenge correct or not. My heart tile has some tangles, my second tile I created a string like a G then filled the spaces, but they still seem to be tangles. Once I have learned tangles I find it difficult not to bring them forward to use in on my tiles and zendala templates. When I get ready to do some tangling the patterns seem to float through my mind and with the help of some of Suzanne McNeil's books on Zentangle I'm still learning more. Zentangle.com and TanglePatterns.com are also sources for patterns to use.
After I had done my tiles I did check out some other entrants and I always check out what Lendenzer has created. Now she looked at some images from Google and created a new pattern. I'm starting to see how I can look for shapes in many places and don't have to use patterns already created. One day I might even create a new pattern myself.

Happy Creating--

I think this Challenge was interesting but I agree it is hard to not think of things you all ready know. I think that looking for patterns and deconstructing them is something that occurs the more that you do tangling.
