Diva Challenge #215 - Labyrinth

I know it's hard to believe, but yes, under all the flair and frill and scribbly lines my labyrinth is there. ^_^

Tangles used: Antidots, Flux, Mooka, Fescu, Featherfall, Opus, Sprigs, Pokeleaf, Tipple, Locar

I swear, every single challenge I try and pack more and more tangles in. Probably never going to top my response for Amanda Day, though. I hope. ^_^ The Micron I used to draw this is now resting in peace in the little pen graveyard that is that one corner on my desk ^_^

Enjoy and be inspired! ^_^

P.S. check out my weekly challenge by clicking on the "Tangleation Vocation" tab at the bottom of the page.
EDIT: Whoop, it's not at the bottom anymore! I just reconfigured it so that the labels are displayed right at the side. Just so nobody gets confused. ^_^
EDIT 2: Check out my new blog for non-Zentangle abstract art over at myjourneyinblackandwhite.blogspot.com!

  1. Well, I guess I'm just going to have to trust you, and that there is a labyrinth under all that tangled goodness LOL! It sure is pretty though!

  2. We have to go through a labyrinth of tangles to find your labyrinth :-) Great work anyway!

  8. It's really beautiful! I trust that the labyrinth is there ;) Love the idea of a pen graveyard! Mine usually just go in the trash but now I'm thinking I should repurpose them!

    1. Thanks ^_^ The "pen graveyard" is basically just a little pile of pens on the corner of my desk, since I (for whatever reason) can't bring myself to throw them away...if I knew how to repurpose them, I would ^_^

    2. I've read about folks who remove the micron ink cartridge, turn it around and reassemble the pen... I've not tried it but it seems like it might work!

  12. Trust is essential in walking a labyrinth so I'm trusting that there is one hidden in your beautiful garden. Nice work.

  13. Whoa! This is wonderfully done! I am planning on doing the pokeroot challenge you put forth, but maybe not until tomorrow. As far as those graveyard pens?....I think you should make some kind of artistic sculpture using them, just sayin'...

  14. It must be a Secret Garden, Daniel! Really beautiful! Hmmm...I just tossed a micron pen yesterday - with regret - it was an old friend almost... Now I have to think of something to do with them in the future. Uhg, I'm so suggestible (is that a word?)!

  15. I can't find it but your tangle is really beautiful!

  16. I can almost see the labyrinth in there, almost but not quite. Maybe that's the point though, that we can't always see the path for all the beauty around us? I really love this piece and your line-work is gorgeous!

  17. I love your piece Daniel. Your linework is always so beautifully done, and these tangles seem to be made for each other. I kept trying to find the labyrinth, but decided I didn't need to find it to enjoy your tile. Nice work!
    P.S. If you ever find out how to revive the microns, let me know or else show us how you repurpose them?

  18. I really love your linework. It's so delicate and flows so well. Awesome
