Found Prose and Zentangle: Challenge #120

The challenge at I am the Diva is called Tangellation Nation and the task is to just use "Bales" as the solo tangle. Bales is easy and versatile and lends itself to much variations. I decided to create an altered page ZIA with found prose. The trick is to highlight certain words and phrases on a printed page while blacking out all other words to create new prose. I have been wanting to do this for a long time. I took a page out of Deepak Chopra's Ageless Body and Timeless Mind and created what you see above. The words that I chose to highlight changed the whole message of that book! I guess that's what artistic expression is all about.

Weekly Challenge: UMT "KUKE"

This week I am the Diva-CZT uses Katy Abbot "KUKE" tangle for the UMT challenge. The tangle reminded me of a millefiori glass bead, so I thought I would make a jewelry out of it! I like the overall effect especially on the large bead, even though the tangle does not look as crisp on the smaller beads. I used Prisma color pencils and graphite pencil for most of the tangle. I did the red outline with a pen.
