Just in from tending to the crazy growing thing I call my back yard, urging to life the things I want to grow, and clipping, snipping, pulling, and trimming those things I don’t.
That’s a lot like how we tend to making art, don’t you think? In Zentangle, there is no eraser, so there is not a lot of trimming and clipping after the lines are drawn. But, if something isn’t looking quite right, I stop and choose a new tangle. I’m not completely anchored to the string, in that regard… I use the underlying pencil foundation as just a suggestion. Sometimes a tangle grows like a weed, pushing the boundaries, while other times they stay all neat and orderly inside the lines. It’s a great adventure.
Every week I look forward to a new adventure at the diva’s website. This week it was a UMT (use my tangle) by fellow CZT Katy Abbott, called Kuke (her instructions for the tangle are here). It’s based on her observation of a slice of cucumber.
In my first tile, I use kuke, diva dance, widgets, eye-wa, striping, lotus pods, knase, a few black pearlz, and a little bit of knightsbridge.
Here, it’s another new one to me, quare, plus kuke, sez, striping, groovy, tripoli, shattuck, hibred, and knase.
