#104 and #105 - Zentangle Challenge #34
These are for Zentangle Challenge #34: "Opposites Attract". The point was, to draw one string with curvy lines and tangle it with straight lines; then draw one string with straight lines and tangle it with curvy lines.
Well, the curvy-string-straight-tangles is how I do 90% of my Zentangling anyway, so that way was easy. The other way was more difficult. I just don't have enough good curvy patterns that I like and am good at. The one above it actually the second one I started, because on the first I made such a botch of the Keeko that I had to toss it.
Anyway, I like how the shading worked out (I'm getting better, slowly...) and I LOVE how nice the frame looks! I did it by trimming down the white pieces a 1/16 of an inch all around and gluing it to a pre-cut black ATC. I think I'll never make an "unframed" one again...
