Challenge #21 – Oof
Challenge #22 – A Little Help From My Friends
I had my husband help me with this. I explained what a string was and showed him examples and on his first attempt he drew a minion from the movie Despicable Me. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of it before I started working on it.
So I then explained it to him again and showed him more examples so he did this on his second attempt. I started working on it and realized I hadn’t taken a picture of it so I stopped to do that.
Here is the finished tile.
Challenge #23 – String Theory
After my husband helped me with the last challenge he came over and asked if he could help again. He read part of this challenge and saw that it mentioned rolling a dice for tangles so he got a 20 sided dice from his dice bag so I could do the same thing. All of the tangles but 1 were new to me. I had to do the following tangles, Fescu, Flux, Hollibaugh, Mist, Nightsbridge, Pokeroot and Scoodle. Most were not too bad to do but I had a little trouble with flux.

Challenges #18 – EGGZZZZellent
Challenges #19 – More Morris (Light over Dark)
Challenge #20 – Royal Wedding
I used the following for inspiration for the tile. I wanted to make the flag wavy but it didn’t come out right.
I spent most of the weekend catching up on the zentangle challenges hosted by I am the Diva. I had a lot of fun and was able to do 20 challenges. As I have mentioned before I suffer from carpal tunnel on both my hands and I had surgery on the right hand which didn’t make things better so I can’t do too much with it for long periods of time; so eventually my hand was hurting but I was so into doing the zentangles that I hardly realized it. Unfortunately today I am feeling it; so I won’t be doing any for a few days.
I did so many that I have realized I like keeping my zentangles simple. On my next zentangles I plan to try to do some shading.
Below are the first 10 challenges.
Challenge #1 – Simplicity
Challenge #2 – Two Pencil String
Challenge #3 – Eyes Wide Shut
Here is the blind string.
Here is the finished zentangle.

Challenge #8 – Hearts for Artoo – (Use two previous challenges to create a heart)
I used stars from Challenge #4 and Ixorus from Challenge #6.
Challenge #9 – New Tangle: Artoo
Challenge #10 – The Space Between: Exploring white space
I am the Diva hosts weekly zentangle challenges. This is my first challenge. I decided to do the challenge with the standard sized tile of 3.5 inches. I still don’t have good pens so I had to use an ultra fine point sharpie. I had ordered a set of Sakura pigma micron pens but the seller cancelled the order today. So I plan to see if I can find them in a store around here. Would an arts and crafts store have them?
I don’t like my tiles for the challenge but since I only found the site yesterday and the challenge ends Saturday night I don’t have time to re-do them. These are my 2nd and 3rd zentangles.
