This is challenge #62 from the iamthedivaczt.blogspot.com.  Laura who hosts the Diva site tells us what the challenge will be each Monday.  This weeks challenge came from Certified Zentangle Teacher, Marizaan van Beek, all the way from South Africa! The challenge was to do the tangle Paradox wrapped around a spiral pattern.  Any other patterns used to complete the design were permitted, as long as the spirals were wrapped in the pattern Paradox which is made starting with a square or triangle.  The shapes that develop are so interesting, looking like fans that are twisted and turned in all directions.  After the ink design is complete you shade some areas to give it more dimension. Some of the other patterns used are variations on Jeewels,Vega,Carres,Jetties, Feathers and Beadlines.         Comment Here

  2. Very lovely spirals... and yes.... the fans ( though I like to call them shells) are turning and twisting in all directions!

  3. Very nice, I 'specially like what looks like a version of a chain you have used in one of your spirals.

  4. Thank you Ladies! I really enjoyed this challenge. You are right "K" they do look like shells to me also. But Margaret called them "fans" in her tutorial so I just thought that was okay with me!
