Diva's Challenge #294: Reticula/Fragment Beginning

The Diva's challenge this week has been to use Reticula as
 your string, and fragments as the tangles. It helps if you have
   Rick and Maria's latest book: Zentangle Primer, Vol. I.
  Basically: Draw a grid (reticula) and fill each space with
design/tangle (fragment) and then repeat that design 
throughout the grid. 

I chose Reticula RA-3 because I thought it would add some
interest, and Fragment Q3, but it also caused some distortion. 
So I kept the same reticula (just stubborn, I guess) and tried it
 with Fragment E4. This pattern didn't distort quite as much:
 I really like this concept; I just need to play around with it a bit
 more to get some better results. But for now these will do. 

Be sure to visit the Diva's site to see the other wonderful entries; it's amazing how different all the responses are. Maybe you'll be inspired to try out one of the Challenges yourself.


  1. It is very interesting and surprising when you have chosen a fragment to discover what the final result would be. You have become 2 nice ones, my favorite is the second one and the shadows are beautiful, in both of them.

    1. Thanks, Ria. I always appreciate your comments.
