" Kiss My Grids " - Weekly Challenge #37

For this week's challenge, the Diva says:  "... the challenge is to use all Grid based tangles in your tile or Zentangle Inspired Art.  And there's a whole bunch of 'em.  To do mine, I drew my string and then with my Micron i drew a grid across the entire tile - and chose two different grid based tangles to fill in the gaps.  And there you have it. Grids!  Have fun."

Oh, good.  An easy challenge.  With the hurricane still blowing around in my mind, I don't want to hurt my brain and be challenged to think too hard!  So, borrowing the weather icon from NOAH**, I drew my string.... then drew the grid and tangled on! 

Thanks, Laura!

Traditional Zentangle - 3.5" sq tile; Sakura Micron black #'s 01 & 05; graphite for shading.
Some parts of our state were hit pretty hard by the hurricane... but on the whole, as it was downgraded to a 'tropical storm' by the time it reached us, the damage (for many) was somewhat bearable.  Wind damage was big, and flooding was anticipated.  Thousands of people are still without electric power. 

And today the sun shines radiantly!  The bright blue sky goes on forever over the gentle breezes of summer.  Life is good.

Thank you for visiting...
... and happy tangling!

  1. Tricia, Love this so relevent to what you have experienced recently and so beautiful....

  2. I love the spirals that are reminiscent of a hurricane as well. Nicely done. Cari

  3. Great tangling!!! I thought "hurricane" the moment I saw it. Very clever!!

  4. My first thought was a galaxy, perhaps because I live in the UK and we don't see any hurricanes. Fab tile.

  5. I love this tile. It has so much movement.

  6. You captured Irene perfectly and I love the new grid pattern you have that I have never seen before. Also beautiful shading!
