Zentangles – Diva Challenge Wk 187 – Blind String

I cannot believe how time flies! Another week is gone. We are so much closer to the end of the year than I feel like it ought to be.

I spent a few days catching up on everything I’d missed whilst moving my craft space and whilst I am not fully caught up, I am nearly there. Yay!

I’d also finally completed a long-awaited Mew Review (it seems are our cats are getting quite popular) which I had floating around in drafts for nearly 3 weeks 😛 I’ll just need to send off the ‘official’ photoshoot photos after this post before I can check it off my to-do list ^_^

This week on the Diva Challenge, we were asked to draw our string blind.

I had really enjoyed the “Eyes Wide Shut” (Week 3) challenge and was very excited to attempt this one last night 🙂

This was my response to Eyes Wide Shut, drawn on A5 art paper.

For this week’s challenge, I used an official tile to create a 9cm x 9cm border on a postcard blank (with eyes open – which is probably cheating!), and then drew on the string with eyes closed. This was how my string looked like… (clicking the images will take you to Flickr)

Although it probably looks like I was still channelling the previous week’s “Leaves Leaves Leaves” challenge, I am rather pleased with the resulting ZIA ^__^

I decided to leave out shading for now as I haven’t left any piece unshaded, for a long time 😛

I realise also, that I need to use a larger variety of tangles in my work! I seem to keep using Sanibelle, Knot Rickz and Lily Padz………

Signing off here, so I can visit everyone else work ^__^


  1. I’m also in a tangle rut. I keep telling myself I’ll put aside time to learn new tangles, but as the saying goes about “best laid plans”…… I think your tile is very pretty without shading, but I also know first hand how difficult it is to leave well enough alone. 😉

  2. I really enjoyed your tile. I know what you mean about using certain tangles over and over, that is one of the reasons I participate in some of the other challenges.
