Is it a Zentangle?

The Diva's Weekly Challenge #123: "Guest Post: Is it a Zentangle?"

CZT Maria Vennekens has sent out a challenge to makes us think....... can you do a Zentangle without  using existing patterns or tangeleations* of them? And what are your experiences while doing so? 

NO EXISTING TANGLES!!!!    

Just start.....corner dots, border, focus, then the ah-ha moment - a nifty string, fill in some spaces - officially black, add some auras, shade......jolly good!
I am not sure if I'm on the right track but the basic Zentangle principle and repetition is there and not a tangle in sight.  
Is it a Zentangle?  I relaxed, focused, and created = happy.


 

Our son Joshua just walked in, he thought I had drawn black leeches!

  10. You got it! The essence of "no tangle." I never thought to do it this way but I love your end result. To me, your drawing reminds me of locks of black hair flowing in the breeze. Thanks for sharing.

  21. I don't know if it's a zentangle; but it is definitely a thing of beauty. I STILL get confused by the definition, as I mentioned in my blog. This was a tough challenge for me.
