So, in Laura's words...This week's challenge is for us to go back to the roots of this Zentangle thing.
This week challenge is to create a piece on a WHITE 3.5" square tile, with a Black pen and pencil for shading. To take the time to slow down and enjoy the process. Enjoy the feel of the pen on the paper. Create a string, and maybe use 4 or 5 tangles you really enjoy.
don't think about composition. don't think about how you want it to look in the end. Just put your pen to paper and begin and enjoy the process. after all. It's ABOUT the process. Not the product.
I decided to take it one step further and not even think about which tangle I would use or put where. I got out my old Zentangle kit, with the legend, and the 20 sided die (forgot name right now). I drew my border, string and rolled the die and did whichever number came up. No planning that way!
I rolled Tipple, Crescent Moon, Keeko, Florz, and Flux and did them in the order they came up, without knowing what was coming next. I slowed way down and really just enjoyed the process!
