Guest Tangler-My Left Hand!

Well, this is my attempt at Challenge #13 from our CZT diva, Laura Harms.  The challenge this week was to complete a zentangle tile using only your non-dominant hand, which in my case is my left hand. 

I really resisted trying this one.....then I tried one on Weds night and it was so awful I didn't even want to take a picture of it or post it.  I thought I would just skip this weeks challenge, but then something was nagging at me to try again because I haven't missed a challenge yet, and I'm not a quitter, yada, yada, yada.

So, this time I went really slow...breathe...hold the pen lightly...okay it wasn't as awful as the first attempt. I did learn that when filling in the dark spaces,  if I really concentrated on holding the pen very lightly, I had a lot more control.  Everything was done left handed, the border, the string, the tangles, shading and signature on the back. 

This was the hardest challenge yet for me.  I can't say it was fun....but I did it!

  2. Congrats Sue, this is a very difficult challenge. It reminds you of being aware of others having a hard time in the beginning. (Like little kids) I like that it puts you in the same mindset as someone struggling to make their hand do something it does not know how to do. Yours looks pretty good! Maria

  5. I love how your tile turned out – it seems to be more sketch-like…
    And even if your guest-star is a little shy the first time on stage, I´m sure your hand will become more stable and confident with every appearance!
