It's a String Thing #91

Entry for Tickled to Tangle's Tuesday Challenge: It's a String Thing #91

Guidelines were to use Tickled to Tangle's string based on the Roman Numeral V and the tangles: Zin, 2-N-5, and Vano.

I love how this came out. I keep the shading very blocky and minimal to highlight the near art-decoish look of the tile. When I was creating this, I had it upside down from how I scanned it. But I felt the way I scanned it has a better balanced feeling.

I am the Diva's Weekly Challenge #216

This week's challenge from I am the Diva was to use 'Brella by Bunny Wright, CZT. As the challenge was issued on 4 May, nods to Star Wars were encouraged.

Star Wars didn't make it into my Zentangle today and it is a bit chaotic. But, that chaos is kind of reflective of my state of mind. I like how the Fandango across the top came out, and the nest 'Brella in the center. My string lead parts of my design, but in the end, several tangles overwrote the idea of the string. (It was a crossed Z.)
