Weekly Challenge #3 "Eyes Wide Shut"


Weekly challenge #3-Eyes Wide Shut

I don’t think this was as much of a challenge for me as it was for a lot of people.  For me, Zentangle has always been about surrendering to my muse, letting her take over instead of using my brain to force a drawing in the direction I wanted it to.

I’ve never actually closed my eyes before, but I often scatter dots around the page, and then just connect them willy-nilly.  In this case, drawing in a journal helped, because I could feel the edges, and didn’t have the fear that I’d run off the page.  I did get a string that was a little shakier than normal, but as you can see from the completed zen below it, the shaky just blended right in.

I did a second one (but didn’t have a chance to scan in the string before continuing).  This will be a good method of starting a zen on those days when I’m feeling as though my creative salts are all clumped up.
