Within a few weeks of starting this (teach myself) Zentangle thing last summer I noticed a few marker stones on the road ahead - points that if I could reach them I would know I was heading in the right direction.
My first tile drawn with a Micron 01 - which happened sometime around August. My first tile submitted to an online challenge followed in September with a warm welcome at Adele's place! I've had a go at introducing colour. I've learned tonnes more tangles. And even had a go at designing one of my own (watch this space...). This week has already seen another first - my first Zendala. But the time has come to reach another of those significant markers - to enter my first Diva Challenge (#158). Her name echoes around most places Zentangle related - like a rumour, like a myth. But it wasn't half as scary as I expected!
I simply drew a tile with the two tangles she suggested this week - Crescent Moon and Diva Dance - both of which I'd used before. And this is what I got -
To me it looks like a magical magnifying glass held up to the trunk of a tree - and in its lens we see a vortex drawing us in, to who knows where.
