Labyrinth: Yomaho, Chimidle, Flower Net
Each week the Diva puts out a challenge for folks to make their representation of her idea. This week is the Weekly Challenge #215: “Labyrinth”. So here is what the Diva says this week “I’ve been taking a year long course on Mandalas with the amazing Scottish beauty Julie Gibbons, this is my third year exploring the Great Round of Mandala with her. Â And it just so happens that Stage Three (which corresponds with the month of March) involves labyrinths. Â I’ve been thinking about tangling a labyrinth ever since.
I had wondered how well a labyrinth would translate into a Zentangle challenge, and then in my online travels i found a website which said: A labyrinth is not a maze. Mazes are puzzles, designed to vex the mind, but labyrinths are contemplative designs, designed to focus the mind. and i thought, that sounds much like tangling to me! Â So i gave it a go …
and then, as i was shading my labyrinth, i was running my fingers along the graphite, along the path of the labyrinth, and i had my Ah-Ha moment. Â There was my zen. Â it was in ‘walking’ the labyrinth that i felt that soft focus i get when i’m in my tangling-zen-zone.” So this is a little ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using a Labyrinth.
Zentangle Enticed Me
Zentangle has become popular the last couple of years and I have been intrigued and am putting my attention to it.Â I started in the middle and hadn’t put it together that the Labyrinth went UP quite a bit … so that is why there is all that spaceÂ 🙂 :)Â Spring is coming 🙂 I am feeling there is light at the end of the tunnel!! Thank you to everyone who made comments on my posts these last weeks. That means a lot to me!! I had not been in a position to return comments as I would wish 🙂 Thank you!! I will catch up again 🙂
Which Tangle is Which?
This is my Labyrinth. Yomaho is the string of hearts that makes up the actual Labyrinth.Â Within in the Labyrinth is a string of umbrellas … Chimidle.Â And Chimidle wanders around and off and away.Â Floral Net is the background.Â There you have it!! 🙂
Diane & Carolienâ€™s Weekly Zentangle Challenge
My friend Carolien and myself felt the need for having an extra Zentangle Challenge each week. Come join us in the fun!! Details at Diane & Carolien’s Weekly Zentangle Challenge.
I am organizing my studio again to be able to work and a table has tons of stuff dumped on it – and more stuff is dumped in there from the holidays!! (My studio always gets filled up when there are projects in the house that need a place to dump a bunch of stuff for awhile!! LOL!!) Thank you for stopping by!! I LOVE comments!! Thank you!! ~ Diane Clancy
