Zentangle® Fragments, Reticula, Sindoo, and an Inchie

Well, the challenge from I am the Diva remains the same for this week except to use a fragment (filler) that is asymmetrical. I am happy to have another go at this. Last week, I tried to use an Ogee grid and lost myself along the way and had to say that I used an "irregular" gird. So, I decided to do it again, and did so with complete success. The filler is a fragment of Footlights by Carole Ohl, CZT.
The focus tangle at Square One, Facebook, is Sindoo by Sharon Robinson. I added some lines to it and it turned itself into Bales šŸ˜²
This week’s Every Inchie Monday prompt is “Question”. This made the song from Stone Sour, Through Glass, keep running through my head. Especially this verse:
How do you feel? That is the question
But I forget you don't expect an easy answer
When something like a soul becomes initialized
And folded up like paper dolls and little notes
You can't expect a bit of hope
Not to leave anyone depressed. It is only a song and my dancing paper dolls should put a smile on your face!

Thanks for stopping by. I do love reading your comments.

    1. I will have to revisit Sindoo one of these days, Carmela. But, I always post what I actually do rather than trying to perfect something, as that's what you do with Zentangle :)

    1. When I was an art teacher, we did multicultural paper dolls holding hands like this and hung them all over the ceiling. I taught 1st-8th graders and their paper dolls were soooo much better than mine LOL; however, they weren't trying to fit several in one inch :) That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

    1. Funny, but I'm getting more used to hearing that word, reticula. At first it just annoyed me. I kind of prefer to keep things simple. But, it's a good word to use for Zentangle pieces.

    1. I was waiting to see who, besides myself, saw birds in that first tile, Freebird. Wasn't on purpose, but there they are :)

  9. Didn't think of using circles, and your tile is lovely. I really like the green on the tan. It's striking. I will have to remember to try out that color combo. Thanks for a new idea. The little dollies are so cute!

    1. It's actually an Ogee grid, Kate. That grid used to give me fits with the changes of direction. I finally have the muscle memory to do it now without stressing, LOL. No Zen in stressing :)

  10. I always think of "Hi,Howareyou,I'mfinethanks,howareyou?" as one, rather meaningless word, because no one really wants to know the answer. I like your paper dolls, although I don't know the song. Well done with your creativity once again

    1. I had to chuckle when I read your comment, Kia. I avoided high school chemistry (which came back to bite me in college) by taking shorthand instead. (Somehow I talked my guidance counselor into this saying I needed it to take notes in college.) All I can remember how to do though is "dear sir how are you I am fine" LOL!

    1. I really couldn't remember the words to this song, Jenny. The part, "that is the question" is the fragment that kept going through my head. When I remembered the part "paper dolls", I put question and paper dolls in my search engine and Google found it for me. Amazing!

  15. A wonderful choice for a grid Jean and beautiful fragments to fill it.

  16. Like the Diva Challenge tile. Did not think of making a fragment from part of a tangle. Like the color. I am like a bad penny. Just about the time that you think you have seen me for the last time, I show up again, lol.

    1. I have missed you, Donald. I am a worrier, so when people disappear, I worry. I'm very happy to see you here again leaving me thoughtful comments. Yes, it's actually a full tangle, but the idea of moving something like this around sounded interesting. I do like what happens. I may just have to try this with more "real" tangles.
