Diva Challenge 116 - Blind String

The Diva's challenge this week was to use a blind string. I drew the top line, then closed my eyes and continued on with the lines. I got two loops. That was good enough for me.

I usually defy the rules of Zentangle and not use strings as a base. But not this time. For the finished piece, I wanted to use Zentangles that I had never used before, and it just so happened that I received an e-mail with a new 'tangle yesterday, so I started with that.

It's called DUGWUD by Anita Roby-Lavery.
The pattern is the prominent first loop.

Along with Dugwud, I also used Lacey and Jonqal. I don't have the names for the other florish bits at the bottom and the side.

Isn't "dugwud" fun? It is lovely here with touches of blue. This is a very nice tile!

How very beautiful! I especially love your little people sitting on the steps. Looks like you had lots of fun zentangling this piece and we are having lots of fun looking at it!

Be happy :)
