Weekly Challenge #120

This week Laura Harms (a.k.a. The Diva) challenged us to monotangle using Bales and it's variations. I still need to do some shading or coloration, but for now I'll post my ZIA 'as is'. I am glad that she selected 'Bales" it is one of the easier tangle patterns. Some of the others get complicated--I think this pattern is truer to the spirit of Zentangle.

Hopefully posting it at this stage will motivate me to finish it and show you an improved version before the week is out. I am so pleased to have recommitted to the art form that I may even try some other variations and not even post this one in response to the challenge.

UPDATE: I did add some color to this piece, but I think I like the original version best. You can see the updated version here.


  1. Your light hand gives bales an airy and sweet appearance and I love this tile!

    1. Thank you LeeAnn. I was just lamenting about how sloppy my strokes are. I appreciate your kind comments. :-)

  2. Oh Beth, your strokes are not sloppy at all. We tend to be our own worst critics. I like the variations you did, and the whole tile looks very nice.
