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.

Thanks for visiting.
