(If you’re clueless about Zentangle, start here.)
This week, the Zentangle Diva, Laura Harms, challenged us to use a spiral as the string (guide) for our tile (composition). I’m afraid I got
a little considerably carried away with the spiral thing. Rather than just treating it as a string, my tile has spirals coming out the proverbial “wazoo“. See below:
So, why have I had to delete an expletive? Because I broke my cell (mobile) phone, which is also my “go to” camera when I’m on the road! And, I’m on the road—big time: 8 days in Turkey, followed by 12 days in Israel. At least I have a better story for how I broke it than most college boys after a night of drinking. I did not drop it into the toilet. Nope. I dropped it onto a very hard, ancient stone street in the Old City of Jerusalem in Israel. Unfortunately, it means that at the moment, I can’t retrieve some of the tangle inspiration photos I wanted to share with you. However, it turns out that some of the photos Mr. Excitement took with our regular camera aren’t all that shabby.
Last week, painfully slow and intermittent internet wifi service in Turkey only let me share one photo of the wonderful tangle inspirations I have seen on our travels. Here are some more from Turkey.
These are just a few photos of the inspiring patterns we’ve encountered on our travels in the Middle East. I hope to soon update my tangle inspiration board on Pinterest. Fingers crossed that I’ll be able to salvage the photos I took with my phone camera.
