This weeks Guest Host is: Elisa Murphy, CZT 15. Elisa has us Embrasing the Yuck for this weeks Diva Challenge. We are to show solidarity and support for Laura and fellow Zentanglers who are forced to face feelings of unsteadyness and powerlessness. Elisa's term for this is, "Embracing the Yuck."
We are to use our non-dominant hand to draw, color and shade this weeks Challenge Tile. Those unlucky souls who use both hands with equal dexterity must hold their pen like it was a microphone and draw their Tile. That sound way more difficult a task. Which ever group you fall into, this is going to prove to be a Challenge. A very unsteady one.
We were not directed to use any particular patterns so here are the patterns I used.
Tile Size: 3.5" square - Tiepolo Stock.
Sakura Micron Pigma Pen .01, Black
Color: Dick Blick Studio Colored Pencils
I am very surprised that this challenge turned out as well as it did. My left hand can not be relied on for drawing, or anything else. When I was in the work force, as a mechanic, I would hold a punch in my leftt hand to be hit by a big hammer in my right. On occasion I would actually hit the punch. I had no idea this challenge would turn out at all using my less than happy left mitt. My right hand kept dancing around trying to snatch the pen away from the left. It was interesting watching these strange wobbly and unpredictable lines and forms appear. My left did do surprisingly well drawing the stipples.
It's all fun, and Elisa, as well as the other guest hosts this month, have given us some fabulous challenges.
Thanks for the comments left on last weeks Diva Challenge #193, TriTangle.
