Zentangle Challenge #232 - Guest Blogger Holly Atwater with audio instructions

Wow, this was a very different sort of challenge from guest blogger Holly Atwater who is sitting in for Laura at www.iamthedivaczt.blogspot.com this week. I was fortunate to be at CanTangle earlier this summer and experienced an audio meditative instruction done by Molly Hollibaugh, and it was an awesome experience. These audios are somewhat similar but it's a bit different listening on my computer and being able to pause and replay. I did all three audio's. The first one is for Tripoli, and I have to say that I find this one of the most challenging tangles, but with the audio, I think I did a pretty good job! Thanks Holly! The next one is a tangle that Holly called Meatballs, but I think it's on the Zentangle website and Tanglepatterns.com as Nipa? The third I had more trouble following the instructions, but maybe I'd lost some concentration by that point. Oh well, I improvised. Fun challenge, and I'm quite happy!

I can't believe you got the Tripoli so small on that bijou tile, it's amazing. I like all three of them, you did a really good job.

The audio meditations were fun to do and your results are great. I think the last was the most confusing to follow, but your interpretation is lovely. Nice work!

Hi Sue!

All three tiles are gorgeous! I really like the direction you took your third tile... Beautiful! Your line work and shading on all three is fabulous. I'm glad you enjoyed the audios... I am sorry you misunderstood me on number two... I did call the tangle "Nipa" or intended to! I'll have to listen back again sometime. I am so glad you were able to do an audio meditation with Molly at CanTangle... She is definitely the master of this technique! So. Awesome!!! Thanks so much for giving my Duo Challenge a try AND for being an over achiever and completing all THREE audios!

I think you did so very well. And even with Tripoli (that one is till not working for me).

These look great! I bet it was very calming.

Beautiful work, Sue! I thought the same thing about Tripoli....how did it seem easier just by voice alone? For me, it seemed that it was because I was going so much slower and really concentrating on each line. Love these audio meditations!
