Diva’s Weekly Challenge 128: Two Pencil String

This was fun and a great way to use those patterns that work in long, narrow spaces. I had two mechanical pencils and adjusted the leads so that they would be of similar length. Then I held them together, put them perpendicular to the surface so that both leads touched the paper, and drew! I too had to make minor adjustments, but it was easy to do. I then went to my handy-dandy self-customized pattern guide and searched through my page of border-like patterns. I ended up changing a lot of patterns around, mostly to cover up errors ( :- /  ,  but in the end, I enjoyed the creation, and I am happy with the result!

I have included a couple of Zentangles that I did but never uploaded as my poor kitty Sam died suddenly and unexpectedly, and I was too sad to do much. I think Coaster by Carole Ohl is one of my favorites. Others that I can remember are Facets by Nancy Pinke, and Boomerangs by  Teresa Clerc. Mumsy by Sandy Bartholomew is at the bottom right, Aura-Leah version by Carla du Preez at the top right, Japonica by Sandra Strait, and official Zentangle® patterns, Mooka, Eke,  and Pane.

Here is my Cirquital / Opus. Working on this helped me deal with all the anxiety and worry I was going through at the time.

Here is my template Zentangle featuring Footlites by Carole Ohl. I colored it with fine point markers.
