Diva Weekly Challenge No. 84

This is my work for the Diva Weekly Challenge No. 84 "String Theory v.  XI: Blind-Sighted".  At first I was going to draw the outside borders then do just the string “Blind”, but I decided to do all the pencil marks blind. So I closed my eyes and began drawing, once I had marks for my tile, I opened my eyes and began to tangle. As this is my first Diva’s challenge I decided I wanted to do more traditional tiles filling each area with a different tangle, as I learned in my 1st Zentangle® class.  

For those of you unfamiliar with Zentangle, the string is a line or series of lines you draw on the tile, which serves a number of purposes:
  •   First it removes the fear of an empty tile
  •   It acts as a Guide
  •   It gives you separate sections to work in
First the string....

And the finished Tile....


  1. Roy, welcome to the challenge. I think the string you closed your eyes to produce was the beginning of a really wonderful tile! Will look forward to seeing more challenges in the future!

  2. Nicely done. Your textures and tangle combinations work well together.

  3. Beautiful! Lovely linework and tangle choices.
