i am the diva,czt Weekly Challenge #236 "Tangle Unexpected"


i am the diva, czt     Weekly Challenge #236-"Tangle Unexpected"

Laura has started us out this week with a great challenge "Tangle Unexpected". Take something that's not a Zentangle tile. She had an old map that she tangled on. I found this poem in an old book last year that I got to alter. When I read it I immediately tore it out and keep the original on my desk. I decided to make a copy of it, tear it, crumple it, Distress Ink Tea Dye it. I picked up a dark brown Micron 01 pen kind of smoothed out the paper and took a look. This may not be exactly what Laura had in mind, I think it came out more like a ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art), but I like the way it came out. A few different tangles scattered all around, some underlining of key phrases that spoke the most to me, and unexpected to me a face emerged at the bottom of the page. I'm choosing to call that a face of determination. 
I looked at a lot of the other entrants and commented on some of them. All very different. Nothing new there, but very interesting to see what each person tangled on.
It's already Tuesday so I'm off to enter and move on to some more projects.

Happy Creating--

Wow, you really worked on this and what fun to have a face appear out of nowhere.

Super piece. Yes, ZIA, but ZIA is fun too!

Beautiful, and a bit mysterious :-)

This would be perfect as a Random Act of Zentangle---where you just leave on laying about somewhere out in the world. Someone would probably find it and think they found an antique manuscript with some type of mysterious hieroglyphics. Well done.

I love how you distressed the paper and used the crumples as the string! The face at the bottom is priceless! This is wonderful!
