Here's the challenge:
Create a Zentangle using your name or nickname as the string, and only traditional tangle patterns to fill it in.
You may interpret the challenge however you like,
but stick to black, white and red, and shading,
for your color palette. Any size.
As always, you folks jump at a challenge and make such beautiful art work!
I had planned to do the voting on Facebook, but I had a few emails from non-Facebook users - so I have moved all the entries here to the blog.
If you would like to vote on the winner for the People's Choice category, please do so in the comments below. You just need to leave a comment with the artist's name, but feel free to say what you loved about the piece as well. :-)
Yes - you may vote for yourself.
I will post the winners on Wednesday (August 20th).
Good Luck everyone!
