Cathedral Arches



Weekly Zentangle Challenge


     This week the challenge was to create a zentangle that had to refer to the royal wedding of last week.  Well, I didn't watch it so I had very little in the way of ideas. 

     'AHA!',  I thought, 'it took place at Westminster Cathedral.'.  So if I look up Westminster Cathedral, surely there would be something in the decorations that I could tangle.  So I looked it up on the internet and found a whole bunch of pictures -- I mean a lot!

     One picture caught my eye, so I decided to try that one.  It is a picture of the inside of the ceiling, with lots of arches.  It lent itself to all sorts of tangles.  Betweed works especially well.  I was a little disappointed in the marquetry in the ceiling.  I tried to make it more 3-dimensional, but the tangles I chose were too much alike.

     Oh, well.  I like it even if it didn't work out the way I had intended.    Here it is.
