" Crescent Moon " - Challenge #72

Crescent Moon is the first official Zentangle tangle that I learned in an Introductory Zentangle Class given by Maria & Rick in Whittinsville, MA.  (Awesome experience.)  This has always been the first tangle that I taught in my introductory classes, too.  It sort of indicated a "right of passage" for me.... from student to teacher.  A bit spiritual.  I felt like I had to start my classes with Crescent Moon in order to allow the zen-like aura to take hold and permiate the room.

But I'm a big girl now.  And during my big-girl-growth-spurt, I recognized my ability to communicate with my students by teaching them as I was taught.  Breathe, relax, enjoy.  Dots, lines, string.  One.  Stroke.  At.  A.  Time.

Here is my contribution to this week's Crescent Moon Challenge.  Grids, crescents, spheres, loops.

My faux pas this week is that I mis-read the Diva's instructions.  M-o-n-o-tangle.  Oops.
