Circles and Squares (DC #311)…

This week’s Zentangle Diva Challenge (#311) is “Circle Square String Theory”, which is,  basically make circles and squares as your string and then have fun. 🙂

Initially when I drew out my string I had visions of the 80’s, perhaps it was an album cover? or a print on a shirt?  I don’t know, and when I asked my husband about it, he couldn’t figure out what I was trying to describe.  Oh, well… it ended up going in a completely different direction anyway, so it doesn’t really matter.  I had so many tangle patterns in the first tile and I had intended to take a photo before I added the coloring to make it look like a gem, but I forgot — excited to try out creating a gem.  On the one hand, it covers up quite a bit of the work (being that the gem turned out so dark), but it also made it look less busy, so I guess it all worked out in the end.

I really liked the idea of adding the gem, so I started another tile this time purposely trying to alter the pattern that would be under the gem, and I chose lighter colors for the gem so that you could see the patterns underneath.  My husband said it looked like dripped honey. 🙂

Hope everyone had a nice weekend, my husband had Friday off so I ended up not getting to the computer all weekend, opting instead to hang out with him.  So my entry is late.

Also, as usual, I practiced some tangles on my husband’s mug… 🙂

Until next time…
