Wide Open Spaces

"The eternal silence of these infinite spaces frightens me."   Blaise Pascal

It's been a while since I've posted anything here. I've been so busy working on my book that I haven't been doing much else Zentangle related. In case you didn't hear, I'm publishing an e-book containing over 40 new tangle patterns. My target date is the first week of March to have the book available, but we'll see if I can do it, or if life gets in the way. I'm so close, and so excited!

This week the Diva's challenge called out to me so I decided to make some time for it. And I killed two birds with one stone by including one of my new tangles so I can use this tile in my book also.The challenge was to leave open white space. This is something that I love when I see it in other people's work, but find it so hard to do. If I see a space I need to tangle it. Someone stop me!

Here is my tile. I really love the white space and must force myself to do it more often.

Now back to my book. I'll let you all know when it's ready.


  1. This is so very pretty, especially the right side.

  2. I agree with Annemarie. Very nice, especially the one that goes in and out of the paper. I just love that look.

  3. Very effective use of white space! Good luck with your book :)

    1. Thank you Helen. I hope the sales of your book are going well. I plan to buy it but I'm just waiting until I finish mine since I won't have any time until then to do anything else.
