This week the Diva not only invites us to use red in our tangling, but to focus on the fun too!
For me the fun came threefold. Firstly, I tangled for the first time in over a week. I've had a slight hand injury which meant I couldn't hold a pen, for writing or drawing. Somewhat torturous, and so joy abounds now I'm picking up my tools again. Secondly I dived straight in, no planning, grabbed a tile (a scratchy one that I'd been avoiding for good reason as it happens!), a thicker than usual pen and a new Crimson pencil.
Thirdly and most preciously I carried the baton for a few paces. One of the most wondrous things about Zentangle is that way a far-flung community of souls is pulled together. Yesterday I noticed that Antonine Koval had posted about how (among other things) a tile of mine had inspired her. She then shared her new tangle N'Meshed. And so, how could I resist carrying the inspiration on further by making my tile with her new tangle.
It's a fun tangle to draw, and it seems to relish those wobbly bits that occur frequently when trying to draw Ogee grids. Mine is a simple variation, which ended up looking a bit like reptiles eyes!
