"Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory." George S Patton
Just a quick post today, much shorter than my last one. But first I have to say thank you for all the wonderful comments I received on my new pattern Cruze. I'd love to see what you all do with it, so I just entered it in the "Use my Tangle" part of the Diva's challenge. We'll see if it ever gets picked - there are an awful lot of tangles already on her list!
This week's Diva challenge is to use Jane Eileen's "8s Parte Dos" pattern. I think I played with it for a very short time when it first came out, but didn't give it the time it needed. So this week I sat down and worked it out...I think! I agree with everyone who is saying that it takes a lot of focus. I didn't find it hard to know which direction to curve the lines (after a few practices), but I thought the hard part was lining up the black dots properly. Did anyone else find that part difficult? So you will see, or maybe you won't, that in my Zentangle I purposely tried to make them grow a little bigger as I went so that I wouldn't get frustrated when they didn't line up perfectly.
It reminds me of one of those flower pots that have holes all over for the plants to peek out of. I was challenged by this one, but I guess that's why it's called the Diva's challenge!
