"Love Your Curves" ~ Weekly Challenge #15

This week, the Diva's challenge is to use only curved lines in a Zentangle/ZIA.  A curved string paired with curved tangles and curved lines... and as Laura explains in her blog challenge-post,  "In Yoga, when you are doing a series of poses, it's always important to do each sequence on both sides of the body, to keep it in balance.  So, as in Yoga, we will strive to find balance by countering last week's 'straight lines' with this week's 'curves'."

"Love Your Curves" Weekly Challenge - in official Zentangle format

As each stroke was penned on this tile (made of beautiful 100% cotton, fine artists' paper), I was truly "in the moment".  Focus... breathe... relax... hold the pen lightly.

Meditating while drawing curves felt soft and melodious.  So quieting to the soul.

My heart was warm with gratitude.

My right brain so enjoyed the process of penning this tangle that I could almost hear it softly, softly purring.

Then I emerged from my hypnotic stupor to find that my favorite little happy feline was laying behind me on the back of the couch.  And, of course, he was purring.

Happy tangling,


  1. Purring cats can either help or hinder drawing. Help if they're nearby, hinder if they're so nearby they're loving on the pen! ;) I love this one. It reminds me of a weeping willow

  2. This is like a little Fairy land, I'm looking to see the Fairy, but alas she was scared away by a purring feline. Tricia, I love this it is so magical!

  3. very the leaves, the little beehive looking thing....and your little narrative.

  4. Beautiful...looks like a magical place...makes me think of a wedding.

  5. Love It! Reminds me of a an old-time lacy lampshade.

  6. I love how the lines that would usually be straight are curvy. It gives a great effect!

  7. I LOVE THIS! It's so magical and fun! Love, love, love it!!!!

  8. Tricia, you never cease to amaze me.....beautiful artist and poet too! Congratulations on your site. Gram would be so proud of you....this one reminds me of one of her beautiful bassinets.
    Love you, Auntie Barb

  9. Very nice! I am waiting for the zentangle show to start :-) (looks like a pretty stage)

  10. What a great resource!
