Diva #9 - Zentangling - Second Challenge and with my Grandson!!

 My beautiful older grandson is 6, rising 7, and loves to craft and draw with me... I showed him zentangling last week when he was here with me because of sickness... he sat all afternoon and had a go. His 2 pieces are above. He used pencil first - he HATES making mistakes and demands perfection from himself (now I wonder who he takes after there then!!! , poor little soul...) but then he realised it would be ok to try, so he used one of my pens - well two actually, as he realised he needed something a bit fatter to colour in the black space!!! I think he did a great job!!

 Here are a few of my efforts this week, trying out a new pattern from the Diva herself!!! She made it up sitting in the hospital with her darling Artoo, who was very poorly...so it's called artoo. She challenged us to use it this time in our tangling, so I had a go... I think I am getting a bit more fluid in my movements. Anyway, I am still LOVING it and the gentle discipline it gives me...

This was last night's effort... a larger square to start with, being about 5"x5" instead of 3" as above... I just let the artoo grow right through the middle and the rest just fitted snuggly round. It's interesting to note that some squares are solid but some are empty in places... I wonder why that is??
Thanks for looking and I hope my new zentagling folks like it!!
Love and Light

I love the way you have used "Artoo" It was a tangle that just kept saying "try me again" I am amazed at how well you tangle for your short time with us! I enjoyed very much the tangles from your grandson too!

Love all your renditions of Artoo, but the last, larger one is my favorite. Your grandson is very talented too.

Your tiles are all great, I especially like your final larger piece. By the way, your grandson is a natural!

Your grandson's zentangling is great - must be his teacher's influence! Loving the artoo through the middle of the last piece too.

Joy said...

Wonderful! I like the last one - you seem to have
mastered "Artoo" quite well! I had a hard time getting it to look right, too.
Your grandson is a natural!

Frankie, I am so amazed how fast you have latched on to the way of making zentangles. I love yours. They have a lacy, almost feminine, look and definitely not scary like some I've seen. And it looks like your grandson is well on the way to becoming an artist like his granny.
