I used string 187 (Mary Ellen Calhoun) for this occasion and the patterns Dreamcatcher (Daniel Lamothe), Fassett (Lynn Shelton Mead), Nymph (Melinda Barlow) and Tipple.
Today I went on with b/w original. It is a lot of black in it. There are so much darkness to relate to right now so I needed black as a shelter.
And tangles that would keep everything together in a safe way. Yes I managed to take a before-pic this time! Here comes the one after shading:
I used string 188 (Beth Snoderly). the patterns: Afterglo (Carole Ohl), Oybay (Antonine Koval), LO´s (my own), Kassandra (my own) Echoism and Hollibaugh. Looking at it afterwards I can´t help the feeling that this tile is about sorrow. But not without hope. The hope is about zentangle as a meeting-place for good an loving forces around our planet. And the hope is about how tangling affects my own worries - It helps to keep focus on what is importat here and now.
