This is the first time I'll be participating in the weekly zentangle challenge set by The Diva. I discover Zentangle a couple of weeks ago and it 'spoke' to me straight away. I love patterns and I've always loved 'doodling' patterns. But the last years I kinda forgot that love. Reading about this form of drawing immediately inspired me to pick up a pen and have a go. I love how I can get lost in drawing, forget about time and space and just focus on the pen strokes. Sometimes I only make time for a few minutes of drawing and sometimes I can spend hours on one piece.
I haven't found any of the official supplies around here, but that's fine. I got some good pens and a black piece of paper seems to work great for me. I've been working on an amazing christmas ornaments the last weeks, a combination of the pattern drawing and origami. Will post those later when I have made time to take some pictures (and seeing that my dad borrowed my good camera, taking nice pictures is a little bit of a challenge).
Here's my entry for this weeks challenge. Not only did I use a new tangle it was also the first time I stepped away from the square shape as my canvas and the first time I didn't use a string. A lot of firsts, and eventhough I can see (quite) a few flaws in it, I love it! I will definitely be trying more of these pieces.
