I Am The Diva: Weekly Challenge 174: Superimposing Strings



This is my contribution to this week's Diva Challenge: Superimposing Strings.  For those of you who do not Zentangle, a string is the linear pattern which you lay down first, in which your tangle patterns are drawn ( in the sections, or outside, etc., or, in my case, both.

I did this tangle on 5" x 5"  good white drawing paper.  It doesn't look white because my camera is getting crazy.  I used Sakura Micron-Pigma waterproof ink drawing pens and an HB pencil for shading in some areas.

I discovered that I am really way too intricate on this one - Oh well - live and learn!  As I said before, I am new to this tangling thing. :0
