Zentangle Challenge # 32

Laura Harms has another guest challenger this week - the talented Carole Ohl.

Here's what Carol wrote about this week's challenge:

"Weekly Challenge #32: Zentangle is for Everyone

Zentangle is for everyone!

I love that every week of the Diva challenge, we get to see each person’s unique and wonderful interpretation. It’s an stunning affirmation of the natural beauty that lives in all of us. I know, it’s kind of mushy, but it’s true. 

I was recently asked to participate as an “Artist of the Month” by a new local restaurant. Each month Amicis gives their wall space to a local artist.

Instead of showing just my own work, it seemed like an opportunity to showcase that Zentangle truly is ‘art for everyone.’

One section of the show will feature a wall of Zentangle tiles that have been created by different artists, using the same four tangles.

This challenge contains an invitation to participate with me in this little show. (You can, of course, participate in the challenge even if you don’t want to be in the actual show.)

The challenge: Use a 3-1/2 x 3-1/2 inch tile. If you have an official Zentangle tile, great, if not, that’s ok too. The frames I will be using fit this size tile. Use any string you like with these four tangles: Pais (by Mikee Huber), Zedbra (by Laura Harms and Margaret Bremner), Keenees (by Donna Hornsby), and Baton (by moi) [moi, being Carol Ohl, herself] to create a response to this challenge."

And here's the tile I'll be mailing to Carol..... This truly was a challenge, because these aren't tangles I've used very often or played with very much.  We sure do learn something about ourselves through challenges - I love the easy curves of Pais, but not so much the more angular work of Zedbra and Baton, while Keenes seemed a bit repetitive without being relaxing or conducive to meditation.  


  1. Very nice. I love how organic your tile feels. Totally unique. Great job.

  2. Very nice. It makes me think of the bows you would use on a gift.

  3. What a sweet Pais Family! I like how the Pais seem to be posing for a portrait. Nice!

  4. A beautiful flourish of Pais petals!
