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.
Today I did my first zentangle. It was fun. It reminded me of the doodles I used to make in class when I was bored out of my mind. I unfortunately didn’t have any good pens. I used a black sharpie ultra fine point marker. Which isn’t good since it bleeds. One thing I noticed is it makes my hand quite unhappy so I probably won’t be able to do them quite often. My zentangle isn’t the standard size of 3 1/2 inch square. I have seen many in larger sizes so I did mine on a 5×7 inch heavy cardstock. Next time I will try to do it on the standard size. I plan on reading more on zentangles over the next week.
I also just found a website that does challenges with zentangles. The website is called I am the Diva. They are currently on Challenge #34 so I am a bit behind. I will probably start with the next challenge and might catch up on the others slowly. If I continue doing them I will need to buy better pens.
And now I present to you my first zentangle…tada!
*Update – This is actually considered a Zentangle Inspired Art since its not on a 3.5 inch tile. So it doesn’t really count for my 32 Things by 32. However the ones done the day after this do count. Click here for those.
