Eyes Wide Shut!

There's a zentangle challenge at I am the diva every Monday. This week's challenge is to start with a string that you draw with your eyes closed. The example and the story inspired me, but I thought I couldn't do it. I never use a string. Then I saw Sandra's challenge zentangle with her string. Now I had 2 examples and thought why not give it a try on an ATC. This was my string, I thought I filled the space when I was drawing it. The string looked very small, but I just started tangling. When it was ready I turned the ATC in every way and saw what I had created!
I'm glad I tried to use a string, but next time I will look when I draw it.

  2. I love your 'billowing' Keeko on the side...I might try some different ways of using this pattern. Nice Hollibaugh too :) It seems to me you've met the challenge admirably!

    the only German sentence i know is: "Gebst du mich dein kugelschreiber!" i think it's almost kinda fitting! ;)

  5. Very nice - great hollibaugh - looks like a trestle structure holding up the rest of the tangle - cool.

  6. Your string may have seemed tight and small--but the result is a tangle that explodes off the page!
