Our 21st Diva challenge was to get to know the new Zentangle® pattern, Oof. Yay! a new tangle to play with!
I was surprised that this challenge was my most difficult! I felt really out of synch with my pen this week. I also realized that making the diamond shapes I needed to begin the Oof Tangle, were not in the "things I do well" drawer. For some reason, this tripped me up every time. I'm not a very precise tangler, so lining things up makes me a little nervous. I don't think I ever did settle into a flow with it.
The Zentangle process asks us to be patient with ourselves, take our time, be deliberate and let things flow. Once again, my exercise was to allow the marks to be where they are, whether they are in step or out of step with the way a tangle's steps go! Lemonade from lemons. And I felt like I had many lemons in these three tiles. Some don't resemble the Oof tangle, some have just a hint of it left, and I'm thinking one, at least, is bare bones Oof.
Thank you, Laura, and thank you Zentangle!!
