Zentangle Challenge #113 - String Theory - Hip to be Square

This week's challenge from Laura at www.iamthedivaczt.blogspot.ca is to use squares within squares as the string. Last year I started a series of postcards on which I post a small photo printed from my pogo printer, then decorated with Zentangles. I only got three done last year, but this challenge reminded me of them so here is my entry for this challenge. I took a photo last summer of my rock garden which is overseen by my wood carving "Merlin", and his statuary companions, a Mexican gecko, and fisherman frog. That's what's in the center of this postcard. Chordin is one of my favorite tangles, though it's much darker here than I usually do it. This is the first time I've used Z-trik - LOVE the way this tangle looks! I'm happy with this postcard!

Wow! What a gorgeous post card. I bet you can make more than one from this photo. I'd love to get one. It's gorgeous. Your photographic skills are as awesome as your tangling skills.

I like this tile a lot, it reminded me of some patterns I saw in Australia. I also like the tangle Chordin, I just used it on the side of a pair of trainer I tangled.

Wow Sue what a great postcoard. Very creative idea to frame a photo into a postcard. The tangles and colors are in great balance with the colors of the photo.

Great postcard. I'm unfamiliar with some of the tangles, and I really like them, so I'm going hunting! Beautiful photo, and frame.
