Zentangle Challenge #203 - UMT Athitzi

This week's Zentangle Challenge by Laura at www.iamthedivaczt.blogspot.ca is to "Use My Tangle" - this one is by Eleanor Holt and is called Athitzi. Well, I'll certainly be looking to see what others have done, and I love her circles in the example given, but this is one tangle that just doesn't make me feel Zen. There is that part of me that, though I'm not a perfectionist, I still want to feel tidy and somewhat in control. This tangle stressed me because to me it looks so untidy! I decided to try to let go and play with it as a monotangle and shading around the areas that were the most irregular and uneven… My finished tile looks somewhat better in person than the scan, but I'm truly not happy with it. But there you go - I tried it, and am looking forward to seeing if I get more inspiration from the other entries!

I like the way that you shaded this to give it movement.

A tile with lots of movement and depth. Very nice.

Sue I think you did a great job by putting the little lines horizontal en vertically next to each other, so there is a lot of movement in the blanket you made! I like it.

In ways,I thnk that this tangle is more difficult than it looks. Your tile does have a nice flow to it.

A very interesting take on the challenge. The flow and volume are wonderfully well rendered! Well done!
