Zendala #39 - ZenDon't

Challenge #39 was all about "don't".

Erin's challenge was a great list of moving away from the things you usually do and try to do them a different way. Use different techniques, more or less shading

When I saw the template, I thought great, I know what I would like to do with this to move away from my norm. I wanted to try using more geometric zentangles. I seem to avoid them, and go for the more floaty flowery styles.

After about 3 tries, and literally pulling at my hair because I couldn't get it just right, I heard a little whisper. DON'T STRESS ABOUT IT. This is supposed to be fun.

So my lesson, don't stress and put pressure on yourself. There will be other times to try out the geometric ones. When the pressure was off the lines flowed more naturally and the end result is something I am happy with.
