Reticula and fragments

Reticula is the new name of the grid. And fragment is the name of the pattern in each part of the grid. The terms Reticula and Fragment are introduced in Zentangle Primer Vol.1. I haven´t got that book. I would like to have it. But to order it from US is not to think of, since I have to pay more than double the price with taxes and fees shipping it to Sweden. I have to live without it as long as it is this way. But I like the new terms.  the Diva´s challenge this week is to make a Reticula and fill it up with fragments. It is a way, well known to create patterns, working with textiles, ceramics, tiles or other stuff. Yes, even painting, remember Matisse and Mondrian! Maybe come up with a new personal pattern if you are lucky! Here is my first try in the challenge:



I had a lot of fun doing it. Don´t know if anyone out there created a pattern similar to this one, but I bet there is. Please tell me if there is a name on it already! 

Last night i also made a black tile with string 194 (Anette Plaga-Lodde). 



I used Ceil (Sandy Steen Bartholomew), Papyrus (Suzanne McNeill), Meer and Tipple.

I hope you can find the book Anita, maybe in German language.
A nice try for this challenge. I haven't seen this Fragment before, it looks a bit like B21.
Wonderful black tile too

That's a great fragment you came up with. That's sad that you can't get the book with shipping fees so high.

I'm sure you will like the (German) book, just looking at it is worth while. Mine (the Dutch version) arrived yesterday and it's good to have.
Your tile is beautiful, Anita!

Nicely done - simple and yet shows the concept beautifully! I hope you get the book one day - though I have to admit to not being to fond of the reticula/fragment concept - it takes the zen away for me….

I love your fragment and tile! I don't have the book either. This challenge and all of the wonderful submissions have made the concept so much clearer. I'm enjoying figuring this out on my own by following the footsteps of my many talented ZenFriends;-) Thank you for the inspiration.

I really like your tile! You did very well with this challenge! I don't have the book either, but it's been fun to give it a try!
