Love Your Curves, Baby!

Challenge #15 from our diva, Laura Harms was to tangle with only curved lines.  While it sounded easy enough (I love curvy lines) for some reason I struggled with the challenge this week. 

It could be because my nerves and muscles were thrown off balance a little this week, at least that's what I am going to blame it on.  On Wednesday, I was in a car accident at a busy intersection, where the person coming the other direction did not see the red light and ran into my car at about 35 mph.  Luckily, my guardian angel was riding with me that day and I wasn't hurt that bad, just aches & pains, bumps & bruises.  I will know for sure next week, but it appears that my car is totaled. :(

Anyway, I tried to do a couple of tangles on Thursday, and wasn't happy with the way anything was turning out.  So, I did this one today and it's not quite what I was hoping for, but decided to post it anyway. I started with the ribbon in the middle and then just let the rest happen.  I used Maria's technique of using a Sakura Gelly Roll pen on black ink in a couple of spots.  I've done tangles with white pen on black paper before, but never thought about mixing the two together.   It was a lot of fun and I look forward to trying this some more. 

Hopefully, I get my focus back once my muscles loosen up and my body heals a little more.

  2. Ouch - 35 mph still provides quite a jolt - sorry about your car but glad you're OK - hope your feeling better soon. The tangle is lovely. Like what you've done with Eke - maybe it's time to add it into my mix.

  3. I'm so glad you are O.K. following your accident, I hope your new car will be extra special. All your misfortune didn't seem to take anything away from your zentangle skills. This is lovely, I love the contrast and the movement you have created.

  4. Well I think it's quite lovely! Is it a 2-pencil string ribbon down the middle? Heal soon. Remember: relax, smile, breathe. :-)

  5. I had to translate mph into km/hr - but, wow, Sue - that's some accident!! I'm so relieved to hear you're okay. (I had to read the post through quickly the first time to make sure you were okay.) That's the kind of thing that really shakes you up. *hugs*

    I love your curves tile!! I've got to find some time for trying out my Sakura Gelly Rolls on black... it looks like so much fun!!

  6. Sorry to hear about the accident, but very glad you weren't hurt badly.
    You have a great way of blending the two techniques together. They seem in perfect balance to me.

  8. I love the flow on this one, Sue. It certainly doesn't look as if you were all shook up! So sorry to hear about your accident but am happy to hear that you're basically okay. Too bad about your car, though. Bummer. Better the car than you!

  10. Oh my Sue, Glad to hear you are okay. Sorry about your car. I was in an accident almost 2 years ago that totaled my car. I know what you are going through. Make sure you take care of yourself and see a doctor to make sure you are okay. Your zentangle looks wonderful!
