Zentangle Challenge #14


Our challenge this week was labeled I Walk the Line. Our Zentangle challenge hostess instructed us to create a tile or Zentangle-inspired piece using ONLY STRAIGHT LINES.

One doesn't think about drawing without freely using straight and curved lines until you are challenged to do so. While this piece did take some thought, I found it fun. As I was creating the design it dawned on me that the basic shape or structure I was creating reminded me of the quilt block known as square in a square.

There are some great Zentangle designs out there that are created using straight lines but give the illusion of curves. You can see the results by other Zentanglers by clicking the link in the first paragraph.
