How differently do people view a string? I for one, was very surprised with the two very different results I end up with from the same string.
Most of you reading this are familiar with zentangle strings but, for those of you who are not, a string is a penciled "guideline" that is put on the paper first (nothing is more daunting then a blank piece of paper) to use as a suggestion of where you might place your tangles.
The string for this week was drawn by Anne Marks and looks like this:
You can find more string suggestions at tanglepatterns which is a beautiful site developed by Linda Farmer. Once you get there look around. There is a wealth of information and many links to other creative sites.
Here are my two resulting ZIA's (Zentangle Inspired Art) for this challenge. They were both drawn on a 5"x5" piece of Eco White paper (Paper Source) using black and brown micron 01 and 005 pens and graphite pencil for shading.
Here's to seeing things differently!
