String Theory challenge

The Diva's challenge this week is for everyone to use the same string, as shown on her blog. I quite enjoyed working with someone else's string. I missed last week's challenge, but I think I'll get some family members to draw a few strings for me to work with!  I find I tend to do similar hand gestures when drawing the string, so it was refreshing to have a different take on that aspect of Zentangle.

I think my first tile looks vaguely cosmic.

Tangles: Gneiss, Lotus Pods, (Sandy Bartholomew's) Miranda, Rick's Paradox, Xyp

The second seems to have a jelly bean cocoon about to hatch and shower us all with jelly beans! Yum!
Tangles: Flux, Hollibaugh, Knightsbridge Aura, black Pearlz, Striping?, Unyun

The third didn't quite come together. Ah well. I rather like this string. I think I'll do a few more tiles with it and keep a-goin'. It could be interesting to show a class, too, how the same string can have such a variety of results. Thanks again Laura!

Tangles: Crescent Moon, Knightsbridge, Rick's Paradox, Sanibelle, Screen, Tipple


  1. Margaret, you have such a brilliant imagination! The jelly bean is a treat!

  2. These are all awesome, but I think I like the second one the best.

  3. Margaret, your tiles are very striking! I like the way the "knightsbridge" transitions into the "Screen". Thank you for giving us the names of all the tangles used.

  4. They are all wonderful! I really like the bold dimensions of the first one and the swirly excitement of the second.

  5. These are all awesome and totally different. Love them.

  6. Very creative! Love your work!!

  7. They are great! I like the hexagon shapes in the first one.
