Zentangle Challenge #219 - Straight lines - tile #3

This is my third tile done for this week's Zentangle Challenge from Laura at www.iamthedivaczt.blogspot.com. In my first submission I used Hollibaugh as a string and filled in the bands with tangles; this time I've left the bands empty and filled in the spaces behind. I also used two tangles I've never attempted before - Zuan Shi and Juke. I'm having fun with this challenge!

Zentangle Challenge #219 - Straight Lines

This week's challenge from Laura at www.iamthedivaczt.blogspot.ca is to use only straight lines. FUN! It's been ages since I've made the time on a Monday to do the challenge, and I'm hoping to get back in the habit. The first tile I'm calling "Two Hurry'd" (ha, ha). And I did do it in a bit of a hurry so some of the lines weren't very straight so I thickened them… Still, I had fun.

Zentangle Challenge #218 - White on black or found

wI haven't posted for a while, nor have I tangled very much. But just this past week I was preparing a Zentangle display board for a Holistic Health Fair and had done several different tiles using 4 tangles on each with different strings, just to demonstrate how different, yet similar they could be. I was happy with all the tiles I did, except the white on black. I don't have a lot of experience with these and frankly avoid them. This week's challenge motivated me to really step out of my comfort zone!! I still don't love white on black, and would dearly love to have some lessons on them, but once I got started, I didn't want to stop. So here are the 5 tiles I did today ...
