Diva Challenge #116: "Blind Sighted"

This weeks Diva Challenge is another revisit of an earlier challenge. The first time I was not participating in any of the challenges/dares but was aware of them primarily due to my sister's involvement in Zentangle®.  I would primarily see things that she submitted. Anyway, the basic part of the challenge was to make your border, put your pencil on the tile and draw your string without looking. I must say that a lot of the ones that I looked at earlier as I was doing mine really drew some complicated strings. I purposely tried to do something simple. Here is what the string looked like.




I was actually quite pleased with the result. Was not that I had lots of ideas of what I wanted to do, but I felt that I had accomplished my goal of making a viable string, but keeping it simple. 

I am not sure why so many of my tangles have been more organic lately but it does seem that that has been the case.   Maybe it is just a phase I am going through. This tangle definitely has an organic flair to it.  I was pleased with the result. Hope that you enjoy it.




Tangles used; Betweed, Zander, Poke Root, Poke Leaf, Flux

If you have not all ready done so would encourage you to visit the Diva's blog and look at all the other things that people have done. There are some pretty amazing things.

Thanks for visiting. As always, comments are welcomed, encouraged, and appreciated.

Go Tangle.

  1. The simplicity works for you. I love how each little nook and cranny sprouts a little playful organic tangle. Nice job.

  4. Looks great with the borders tangled and the use of flowerish tangles.

    1. Most of the floral figures are not tangles but just floral designs.

  5. Very nice Donald. Love the way you've really made the string an interesting frame for organics. Particularly like your Zander.

    1. Thanks. The more I look at it, the bottom section looks a little unfinished but not sure I will do anything with it.
