So this week's Diva challenge to use Four Diamonds as a string was one that I was happy to take on. Anything with a grid seems to be a grounding starting point for me when I am stymied as to how to begin a Zentangle tile. I decided to fill in the background with black, inspired by how Maria described doing so as a meditation in itself. What with all the various rumblings in my head, some meditation seemed like a great idea! The diamond string offers so much versatility it will be an idea to use again and again. So here is my tile. I am not thrilled with the results, but the process was great! I used a white Gelly roll for the little border tangle. I do not have a name for it, but I do seem to be using it here and there in my tiles. Hint, hint, names welcome:) And if you haven't already done so, do read the post that tells the story of the Four
Diamonds Fund to fight childhood cancer and how it came about.
