Troubling Paradox

This week the Diva Challenged us to use only Paradox. I usually like and enjoy this tangle but this time I got myself all confused and messed up, which is why I named this post Troubling Paradox. ;)

I used string #71 from Pattern Collections which is just three arches across the tile. I then sectioned off the areas between each section and tangled away. Sometimes I did it clockwise and other times I did it counter-clockwise (or some would say anti-clockwise ;) ).

Here’s the tile with the string marked in red.DC#357 String ~ Lifeofjoy.me

I know there are no mistakes with Zentangle but I had a big opportunity for some huge shading or dramatic darkening of a section; the one up in the right corner above. :D

So I blackened it in. :) Here’s the final version.

I sure  wish I had used pencil first as it wouldn’t have been so drastic. Then I felt it needed something else so I added a few lines anchoring it to the corner.

Here it is smaller and thus a bit nicer. ;)

Until next time, God bless,

  1. Thanks for sharing your paradoxical process. I always forget to take photos as I go along. It’s very interesting to watch the metamorphosis with your Paradox tile. In the end, I think you came up with a very “credible” piece of art. Did you think so?
