Challenges Not Done

Over in YouTube world when someone just talks to their followers it's called a Vlog. I'm not sure what it's called in the blogging world so I'm probably just rambling to hear myself ramble.
I have not done the challenge at i am the diva,czt this week. The challenge was to do a Monotangle using Maria Thomas' new tangle Gourdgeous. I love fall and I love gourds of all shapes and sizes. I practiced the tangle several times between general living and could just not get it to flow or even look remotely like the step outs. Even though there are no mistakes in Zentangle it is best to kind of be able to recognize the tangle you are trying to learn.
That being said the same thing happened to me over at Tickled To Tangle. Adele has created a new tangle called Sand. With quite a few attempts I just wasn't getting the hang of the step outs.
Zentangle is supposed to be relaxing and fun. I wasn't feeling either with these two challenges this week. I'm not giving up, I've just put those two tangles aside for the moment and will practice them later in the month. I will probably even post my results just so you can hear me clapping myself for reaching the goal of learning two new tangles.
OK, I'm off to post and enter the challenge over at The Bright Owl.
Thanks for listening (or reading).

Happy Creating-
