It's been awhile since I've been "organized" enough to get back to some of my challenges. This one (The Diva's Challenge) is a weekly challenge that Laura now says has been going on for 300 weeks. THAT is a lot of challenges. She does now and then use a guest challenger on her blog but she still has to plan and organize it. So she's been committed to this for like forever!
The first tile is about a new feature that the founders of Zentangle® have started called "Kitchen Table Tangles" where they demonstrate some new technique or idea on a video. A weaving of Diva Dance and Paradox is the result. That is this week's challenge...to do our own weaving. The link will show you the the entire video. Pour yourself a cup of coffee and plan to relax.
The second tangle, which should have been posted for last week's challenge, is a tribute to Laura's son. Laura tells her very emotional story about how Zentangle kept her from falling "off the edge" after the birth of her second son, a premie who was diagnosed with a rare abnormal condition called Moebius Syndrome. I was able to hear Laura tell about this in person at my own CZT training (CZT 15) in Providence a few years ago. Each year she asks us to do a challenge using the symbols and colors of the condition. (Thus I've added a little purple which is color attached to it.)
