A line is a dot that went for a walk.
I will admit it, I binged on Outlander all weekend. I also tangled while doing so. Had this been a “regular” show, I probably would have completed a dozen Zendalas, but if you’ve seen the show, you’ll know that you can’t look away for TOO long. Spending hours watching TV made me feel like a rebel. So, being in a contrary mood, I wanted to start with pre-strung Zendalas and go off in unexpected directions.
- For my first, I used a string that looks like a flower, and my earlier versions are very flowery. Not so the latest where I combined sections.
- For the next one, the string is all triangles. So, I challenged myself to do all curvy lines. It turned out to be a monotangle of Mooka. It’s not quite as dramatic as the first. I’m not sure it is quite done yet, but it is close enough to share.
To see an earlier version of this string done with all straight lines, take a look at “I’m Glowing.”
- Finally, to round out the trio, here is this week’s Diva challenge: complete a tile using only straight lines. This is my least favorite of the three and by far my least favorite of the prestrung Zendala strings. I always find completing this one a challenge. It hurts my brain. I tangled using straight lines, but couldn’t help myself and followed the curves when it came time to shade.An earlier version can be found on the back of the Beauty of Zentangle. (If you don’t have the book, you can still see the back cover on Amazon.com)
So, my dot walked all over this week and took me off in unexpected and somewhat interesting places. I hope you enjoyed sharing the journey.
