Bugles: the Weekly Challenge #170 from the "I Am The Diva" Blog

This is the first time I have done a Zentangle for the I Am The Diva Weekly Challenge.  Each week, a tangle is selected as the subject of the weekly challenge.  This week it is "Bugles" by Joyce Evans.  The objective is to design a tangle composition using the challenge tangle.  I got a little carried away with this one - lots of linear work - I feel this could be simplified and be a lot better.  Well - at least I am getting my feet wet!

I like it a lot, especially how you've used bugle is different ways.

Fantastic! I almost missed the Bugles in the leaves. Such great exture there. And I love the free swing of the lines that suggest the path of flight.

Thank you for your comments and for visiting my blog.

Thanks, Jennifer!
Yes - the Bugles are a little hidden in the leaves. I used the lines to pull the composition together and am happy that you picked up on that element. I am not certain how lines like those fit into traditional Zentangle, though. I haven't been Zentangling very long and don't really know the guidelines.

This is fabulous Barb. So intricate but pulls you in and along so well.
