The White-on-Black Challenge

In my previous post I explained the challenge of White on Black.  I have enjoyed this challenge and as an added bonus, I feel I have started to use Zentangling in a way that reflects me.  I'm not at all sure what it was about putting White on Black ( rather than the other way around ) that triggered the growth, but it did happen.  It is possible that my work will no longer be considered true Zentangles, but rather 'Zentangle Inspired Art' (also known as ZIA) but that is OK with me.  I am content because now I like my work.

So now I would like to share with you my two offerings for this weeks challenge.  First there is a simple little tangle all by itself.  I'm sure it has a name but I don't know what it is.  Anyway, I just really like it.  I have been using it for years in my drawings.


 The next one really looks like one of mine.  I'm not sure if there are any tangles at all in it, but it sure looks tangly.  And it easily could have escaped from one of my coloring books.  It looks a tiny bit creaturish, which much of my work does.  I don't do that on purpose, but my drawings often end up that way.   

So this is my second offering for the challenge.

"Friendly, curious something-or-another"

I am really looking forward to seeing what other folks have done with this challenge.  Thanks, Diva!


  1. These are wonderful! Bold and strong…

  2. The second one looks like a cross between a seashell and a pretty butterfly.

  3. Very nice solutions, your first looks very Mookaish and your second does look like a lovely little tangle creature. Both are beeeautiful.

  4. Lovin' 'em! I think your first has yet to be formalized into a tangle - what if you did so and called it "C-weed"? It's beautiful!
