Opposites Attract

Challenge #34 this week is by our friend Christina. She had the splendid idea of drawing a curvy string and filling the spaces with straight lines or draw a straight line string and fill with curves. I couldn't stop at just one so tried both suggestions. Thanks Christina..great fun!

  2. I can't decide what to say about these... I'm speechless. I lie them both so very much! The curvy string moves in an out of focus in a 3D-sort of feel. The 2nd tile reminds me of an illustration in a Dr Seuss book... I feel like I'm looking up at tall minarets and towers! Awesome work (as usual!)

  4. Wow! Both are fabulous! Again. :-) My preference is #2. I love the little beehive endings and must try doing them more.

  9. As always, I love your tangles. I've subscribed for awhile and since I'm new to tangling, I love reading your site to see how you combine patterns so effectively. Thanks for visiting my first challenge entry.

  10. I love this! I really like how you took the first and used inside the curvy lines as white space. I wouldn't have thought of that.

  12. This is tough, I really like both of these - and yes, the use of the white space in the first is striking - but I love the curves of the second one (seems to be soothing to me). They are amazing!

  15. Hello Shelly, I am doing a blog post on Friday about Zentangle. May I use one of your photos, and also link back to your blog? The blog is actually a group blog. We are a group of artists (also friends) and have recently started a blog. You can see it here, if you wish: http://www.beehiveartsalon.blogspot.com/
    Thank you so much for your consideration!
    Warm regards,
